Moloko

22 oz bottle, thanks to Micah (DogBrick) for the chance to try this beer.

Jet black body with a lovely looking mocha colored head. Small, fine bubbles with nice density. Very compact and tight with a degree of orange color that seems to match the label. (Perhaps my imagination!)

A super beer that captures a lovely combination of the lactose sugar and mild sweetness that come together in the way that a sweet stout should, i.e. as a welcome, refreshing antidote to the incessant onslaught of a roasty bitterness that we find in so many American stouts (both RIS and “regular”).

The sweetness is really reserved and generally I prefer it to be a bit more advanced in my Milk stouts, but this still drinks beautifully.

Extremely smooth with a lovely mild carbonation that really adds to the drinkability of the beer.

Very tasty and although perhaps not as sweet as some in the style, I still really enjoyed this. Would definitely try again.
