Black Brewing Bao Bao Milk Stout
Brewery: Black Brewing
Format: 330ml Bottle
Rich chocolate and coffee notes on the palate with the sweetness of lactose gliding over the Tongue. Brewed with chocolate, caramel and dark roast malts Bao Bao is a balanced milk stout with no cloying sweetness, but rather a balance between bitterness from the rich malts and hops, and the smoothness of lactose. Smooth and sessionable. ?
Bao Bao is Chinese for baby or little treasure.......oh we can assure you this little baby is a treasure!
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Easy drinking stout
With obvious roasted dark chocolate and espresso smells and tastes, and with the added lactose makes this a very easy drinking stout
The friendly stout to return to - a good milk stout
Bao Bao Milk stout has been my favourite well-priced friendly Stout to return to - it has the lactose sweetness, but rumbles with the dark roasted malts you expect in a solid stout. Not overdone with coffee or cocoa, it is not too hoppy, and there are hints of deep molasses - I've enjoyed it as just a non-nonsense friendly stout.
Consistently interesting flavours with each bottle
Out of my latest array of dark tasting this was my favorite: it was consistently enjoyable and tasty, to the last drop. Still not the best dark, but given its relative price point, excellent value for money. I will certainly be trying any other darks that come out of this brewery.
Briney roasted malt nose and flavours. Smooth mouthfeel. Dry finish. A little light on all round, but it is a baby sized 4.5% ABV.
Sweet Deep Dark Stout to return to!
Friendly deep molasses roasty stout flavors, but just a touch sweeter and smooth on the taste buds. One of my first great stout finds on Beer Cartel and one I return to!
Smooth and enjoyable sweet Stout
Impressed with this easy on the palate sweet tasty Stout, one for all lovers of dark, heavily flavoured Stouts to savour.
