Stone Coffee Milk Stout (California Company Stores Only)

New Stone beers tend to make their national debut on Mondays. As a patron of the Stone Company Stores, however, you get exclusive, first-taste access on the Sunday before! Additionally, you can sign up for our Insider Alert newsletter to get the early-bird scoop on upcoming Stone releases & projects.
Appearance: Pours black with a thick brown head.
Aroma: Dark-roasted malts give off coffee and cocoa, with hints of smokiness.
Taste: Pronounced coffee and dark-roasted malt flavors that contain hints of cocoa and licorice, and a lot of fruit esters from the fermentation. This is a very malty beer.
Palate: Light-bodied and smooth, with a semisweet but also slightly dry finish.
Overall: Since it was first brewed on our 10-barrel brewhouse at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station, Coffee Milk Stout was a hit with everyone who tried it. I’m excited that we are able to make this available to our fans nationwide as an annual release. Several unique things about this formulation make the beer special, including the addition of San Diego coffee roaster Ryan Bros.’ coffee beans in the mash. We also use British mild ale malt as the base malt and milk sugar, which brewer’s yeast does not ferment. These components add some body and a touch of sweetness to the resulting beer. Despite only being 5 percent ABV, it is a smooth and satisfying beer.
