Maplewood Fat Pug

What the brewers say

“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.”
