9.0% Milk Stout
Pours thick and black as midnight with a mushroom cloud head. Smoky, malt goodness with overtones of burnt caramel and coffee. The milky sweetness is hemmed in by good hops stitching. Mellow and easy, not boozy.
Where to drink it: Savour while curled up listening to your favourite vinyl on one of those cold February nights Calgary gets in the summer.
Pairing: Best savoured on its own, but might work well with dark chocolate.
