Rochester Mills Milkshake Stout
5.0% ABV, 20 IBU – Milk Stout
Brewery Description: The combination of four different malts, along with a low hop level creates a deep dark beer featuring rich, sweet roasted flavors. The addition of lactose (milk sugar) adds complexity, body, and a residual sweetness lending a smooth creamy texture to this full-flavored brew. Once a Seasonal offering in the pub, now prominently featured due to popular demand.
Tasting Notes: Aroma is malt forward coffee, chocolate, and a bit of roasted nuttiness. Pours black with a thick tan head that dissipates rapidly. Tastes just like a chocolate milkshake, sweet with a light body and low carbonation. Finishes with subtle roasted malt and milk chocolate; no hop bitterness whatsoever. Delicious and very easy to drink with a relatively low 5% abv, Milkshake Stout is sure to please everyone!
Food Pairings: Brie, Camembert, Cheddar (aged), Goat Cheese (Chevrè), Swiss Cheese, Beef barbecue, spicy Asian dishes, chocolate cake and other chocolate desserts.

Hopcat’s menu description: This sandwich is totally “Breaking Bad.” Beer battered, pretzel-encrusted pork tenderloin, topped with Swiss cheese, blue cheese – BBQ slaw, lettuce, tomato & haystack onions.
