Another week, another absurdly dark beer! At the Stone Brewery just outside of San Diego, every beer on tap was hoppy as shit, even their imperial stout. Still, I couldn’t resist a the promise of a milk stout with coffee notes, and life is too short not to try new brew.
The Bottle: Standard 355mL in a six pack. Instead of a paper label, it has that painted-on stuff. The devil drinking beer? Works for me!
The Colour: As black as my soul.
The Flavour: Between Stone’s preferences and the coffee, this is a bitter beer. However, it’s balanced nicely against the milk sugar, and thankfully not syrupy sweet because they kept the alcohol content low (5%). I get everything I could possibly want all wrapped up in a single beer.
The Verdict: Delicious and rich. I wouldn’t drink these in any sort of marathon session, but one or two after a hard day of work would be just about perfect. Enjoy!
