Cassels & Sons Milk Stout (328ml Bottle)

Cassels & Sons Milk Stout 328ml Bottle

Description

Dispensed by a traditional handpump, this beer was the gold medal and trophy winner for the best cask conditioned beer at the 2011 Brewers Guild of New Zealand Awards. And if you’re thinking dry and bitter, like that famous Irish stout - forget it!
Pouring an intense black hue beneath a deep, tan coloured head, the aroma is appetisingly rich, with a sweetish, mocha-like combination of chocolate and coffee notes dominating. Creamy and smooth, with just an edge of sweetness, the combines milk chocolate, caramel and soft fruity esters and leads into a cleansing finish with an ashy, charred malt note and suggestion of tart hops.

Deceptively suppable, this rare example of an old English style is wonderfully flexible when it comes to food. Try it with barbecued ribs, nutty or buttery cheeses, fruit-topped cheesecake, or a slice of rich fruit cake.
Geoff Griggs – October 2011

Tasting Notes

Sweet Stout

Dark brown to black in colour. Sweet stouts come in three main varieties - milk stout, oatmeal stout, and foreign stout. Milk stouts are made with the addition of lactose, and are sweet, low-alcohol brews. Oatmeal lends a smooth fullness of body to stouts, while foreign stouts are stronger (6.5-8% abv) and have a sweet malt profile and high esters. All of the sweet stouts are noted for their restrained roastiness in comparison with other stouts, and low hop levels.
