Description 

Our Chocolate Milk Stout named after our two stall garage Tap Room. The subtly sweet stout is mingled with roasted cacao nibs. Much more drinkable than you assume.

Two Stall by Ahnapee Brewery was judged as a Spice, Herb or Vegetable Beer (BJCP Style 30A per 2015 Style Guidelines).

As soon as you pop the cap, you can tell that this beer avoids the pitfall of many chocolate milk stouts that go gangbusters on the chocolate, masking the milk stout character. A mild, soft roasty malt aroma rises from the glass with nothing harsh or burnt. The chocolate is there but not overbearing and there is also a light, dark fruit aroma in the background. It pours deep, dark brown under a robust creamy 2” tan cap with good retention. The malt flavors delight with a rich, but mild roast seasoned lightly by the added chocolate. The added chocolate coats the mouth and grows slightly as you drink the beer. Sweetness is moderate, not cloying and balances with the roast malt flavors, chocolate and a medium hop bitterness. The texture is full bodied, creamy and mildly warming. This beer is a delight to drink and stands out for its balance.
