CoConspirators The Apprentice Milk Stout
Format: 355ml Can
She cut her teeth on the streets of Panama as a child, it was there she was educated on the "import/export" business by one of the darkest characters around. This wasn't an education you got in university or found in books, you got your hands dirty doing this. A bit of dirt never bothered her, she may look young and innocent but she is as dark and complex as this stout. A smooth, full-bodied malt-driven beer with flavours of dark roasted grains, coffee, biscuit and toffee, rounded off with a hit of chocolate sweetness from the addition of lactose and Ratio cacao nibs direct from a farm in Panama. This beer may have a hint of sweetness but she does not.

Milk Stout with a bittersweet punch
One of the Cartel's *new* offerings, I was enticed by the entertaining back-story and description which included cocoa/coffee and toffee! One usually expects Milk Stouts to be a bit sweeter, and this is, with the usual roasted malt depth a stout has. However in the this case I think the hint of coffee and cocoa is used as a bittering agent and slides in with a sizzling aftertaste, not at all unpleasant. It's a 5.9% heavy-hitter in the alcohol department too, one to be nursed and enjoyed slowly for all it's dark complexities. Quite a drop for the stout lover who enjoys subtle variations and dark mystery.
