This was a delicious beer. The chocolate taste was prominent, unlike the Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.

Our Milk Chocolate Stout is a Sweet Stout brewed with milk sugar for a creamier texture. The brew is aged on roasted gourmet Guitard cocoa nibs and Madagascar vanilla beans for a rich, sweet treat. The low hop content of the brew gives the chocolate flavors the lead in this twist on the traditional stout.

Sweet Stouts, also known as Milk Stouts, were originally thought to be extremely nutritious and were at one time given to nursing mothers with the claim that they had a similar nutritional content to milk. After WWII, the British government banned the word “milk” to be used in reference to alcohol, and brewers started calling their creations "Sweet Stout".
