Stone Brings Back Sublimely Self-Righteous Black IPA

Brewing a Toasted Marshmallow Milk Stout

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Here's a gift for the brewers from Clawhammer Supply:

It's the perfect time of year for brewing a sweet and chocolatey nitro "milk stout." Well, any time of year is perfect for that. Anyway, it's like hot cocoa... but beer. Or smores... but BEER. In all seriousness, this turned out to be a deliciously creamy stout with subtle hints of roasted marshmallow. Kyle walks through an incredibly precise and heavily planned solo brew day while Emmet drinks beer. This is definitely one we recommend. Try it out and enjoy!
