So, I brewed a half batch of this up. 4 week fermentation and 1 week secondary, as I do with all my beers now. To the secondary I added 4 oz of caramel coffee syrup and 1oz on chocolate extract, as I have a penchant for adding extracts and syrups to my "off-centered" brews. After a week on gas, this beer is something special.
It takes the idea of a great milk stout, without too much of the lactose sweetness, and raises it to a new level. Roasty and smooth, yet with a nice caramel depth, this just earned a place in my rotation. Btw, I agree that it is much better when allowed to sit and warm up a little.
