Sleepy Dog Brewery Wet Snout Milk Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Sleepy Dog Brewery Wet Snout Milk Stout. This is one of the several beers I brought back from a recent trip to Phoenix, AZ.
From the Sleepy Dog Brewery website: “A dark, rich, aromatic, and malty specialty. Rottie fans tend to be pushy and territorial, so under no circumstances should you steal their bar stool.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours an opaque black with hints of amber with an almost non-existent tan head and sparse lacing.
Aroma: Dark chocolate, lactose, roasted malt and hints of coffee.
Taste: Roasted malts, lactose, chocolate and a slight coffee presence.
Overall: Sweet and tasty, Sleepy Dog Brewery Wet Snout Milk Stout was drinkable and I enjoyed it. Nothing epic about it, but nothing bad to report. This 5.7% ABV offering goes down a little thinner than some of the stouts I’ve been drinking lately, but it is easy drinking so that’s not a bad thing, really. If you find yourself in Tempe, check ‘em out. It looks like they have a nice selection.
