Con Leche Horchata Style Milk Stout – Twin Sails Brewing

From Twin Sails Brewing in Port Moody comes their “Con Leche Horchata Style Milk Stout”.  The beer pours an opaque black colour with a brown head.  The aroma consists of vanilla, cold brew coffee, chocolate, creamy milk and cinnamon.  The flavour is of tons of coffee, vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate, cream and cinnamon.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.5% with an IBU of 18.  Once again this beer is a massive step away from the German style of beers they usually make but change is always a good thing and this stuff is very different!  Since when was mixing coffee and chocolate a bad thing especially when it has all the caffeine?  Make sure to pick up a 4 pack tall cans or two.

Commercial Description:  A Horchata style Milk Stout brewed with a variety of roasted malts and coffee from Bows & Arrows coffee roasters. It pours very dark black with a thick creamy mocha head. The oats and lactose provide a silky rich mouthfeel, which is balanced with strong aromatics of coffee. The beer is conditioned on cinnamon and vanilla beans, which provide a unique spice character that pairs perfectly with the strong coffee and chocolate flavours of the stout.

    My friend was just asking me for milk stout recommendations. He used to love Ugly sweater, but didn’t like last year’s recipe. Phillips made an amazing one once. I also tried a fantastic one in the tasting room at Four Winds recently. Hopefully they bottle it. I would like to try this one.

      Its a good one. Breweries like to make them for a while and then seem to ditch the idea. Fuggles & Warlock have their Bean Me Up Scotty also that is really good.
