MILK STOUT FLOAT
Mackeson Stout has the roasted flavour profile of a stout, but also contains lactose (milk) sugar, which adds sweetness to the beer. The ice cream finds a flavour match with the vanillaesque sweetness of the brew, while also cutting the roasted, bitter, dark malt flavours. Look for a stout labelled “sweet” or “milk” if Mackeson is not available.
3 scoops (12 oz/375 mL) vanilla bean ice cream 1 bottle (330 mL) Mackeson Stout
Maraschino or fresh cherry
1 Spoon ice cream into a wide-mouth mug or Mason jar. Tilt the glass to a 45-degree angle and pour beer in slowly along the side of the glass. Keep pouring until glass is full, top up with remaining beer as foam subsides. Top with a maraschino or fresh cherry.
