Serving temperature

Serve this beer between 7°C and 10°C; stick it in the fridge for an hour or so.

As ever, be wary of over-chilling your beer. More chill means less flavour. To learn more read my post on recommended serving temperatures.

Flavours to expect

Milk stouts should be smooth and sweet with a roasted undertone the cut through the creamy lactose body. Expect chocolate and dark fruit notes and perhaps some coffee character too. The brewers’ say: “Silky smooth oats, organic cacao nibs and lactose sugar come together to generate a deliciously drinkable milk stout.”

The hops used are:

  • Magnum: resinous, herbal, pine
  • Willamette: blackcurrant, spicy, floral

Food pairings

We’re well into December now. You’ve already cracked into the Roses/Quality Street/posher chocs, right? Yeah… let’s just forgo the usual food pairings and stick to the sweet treats with this one.
