The Brew Kettle Kitka
What the brewers say
"We take a traditional milk stout and add chocolate, coconut, and vanilla."
What our panel thought
"Almond Joy nose—thick, rich chocolate, coconut, and creamy sweetness. Coconut is borderline aggressive. Flavor leans sweet but doesn’t cloy, with chocolate coconut-macaroon pastry throughout. Fun flavors here, but also sweet and thin."
What our editors thought
"Light coconut and milk chocolate on the nose is a touch thin but inviting. The sip launches with a sharp edge of carbonation, but the tame roast malt allows the flavors to push forward. Highs and high mids overpower any deeper or richer notes."
