What the brewer says

“Roasty. Dark Choco­late. Smooth. A va­ri­ety of roasted grains (pale choco­late, roast bar­ley, and de­husked roasted malt) com­bine to pro­duce a com­plex and smooth roasted fla­vor. Hav­ing notes of dark choco­late and cof­fee, Fat Pug Milk Stout is rounded out by sweet­ness and body pro­vided by lac­tose and flaked oats.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Cherry and ba­nana es­ters, roast malts, fruit loops, piney hops. I can al­most taste the lac­tose. Maybe a hint of marsh­mal­low. Fruity, nice choco­late malt with a touch of vanilla. Light roast in the back­ground.” Fla­vor: “Rich and smooth mouth­feel un­til the fin­ish, which is fairly acidic and sharp. The cherry and rasp­berry es­ters play nicely with the roast and choco­late.” Over­all: “A fairly com­plex fruity aroma tinged with roast leads to burnt malts and hops bit­ter­ness.”
