Details: Let's break it down: a milk stout is a slightly sweeter stout that has lactose, aka milk sugar, added to it. The lactose is unfermentable by yeast, so it adds a milky, creamy, rich sweetness and lots of body. A chocolate milk stout takes the above formula, then adds even more richness with the inclusion of exotic cacao nibs, the seeds that give us chocolate. Unrefined as they are, cacao nibs bring light fruity notes, sumptuous delicate chocolate, and hints of earth.
Look for an opaque ebony pint capped with dark foam and a flavor reminiscent of straight espresso laced with chocolate liqueur and sweetened with turbinado sugar. Very full-bodied, round, and filling with bittersweet hints around the edges. Excellent as a nourishing restorative or as an ice cream topping.
