Against the Grain Brewery 35K

What the brewers say

“Dark roasted malt and bittersweet cocoa and coffee flavor and aroma burst from this pitch-black milk stout. The full body and sweetness are derived from the addition of lactose. A healthy dose of Nugget and Crystal hops provides a counterpoint to this ale’s rich and complex maltiness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Subtle aromas of dark chocolate and roast. There’s a soda-pop element, too, like 7-Up, and sarsaparilla, some fig and fruit esters. The chocolate grows in intensity but still never dominates.”

Flavor: “Rich, creamy, and full-bodied. Nice sharp roast complemented by mild hops. Both fade in the mid-palate but grow again in the finish.”

Overall: “Despite the full body, this beer drinks pretty easily. It’s a straightforward milk stout. The creamy sweetness you need, the hint of hops, and the smooth chocolaty roast.”
