This milk shake could certainly bring all the boys to the yard, I know i'd definitely go if it the yard was a bar and the milk shake was on tap.
Bristol was once known for its milk stouts and this is Wiper and True's
take on an original recipe, combining tradition with innovation by adding loads of chocolate malt and vanilla pods.
I'm sometimes wary of mixing new and old, but this is a delight. Maybe old dogs can learn new tricks after all?
Milk Shake: Taste Test
There's a sweetness on the nose which heralds the arrival of the chocolate and the sweetness of the lactose, which is backed up by a light but creamy texture in the mouth.
Quite a light beer for a milk stout, but that doesn't detract from the flavour with the chocolate taking centre stage at the front, which melts away into a malty flavour into the aftertaste.
I wasn't getting much in the way of vanilla, but I didn't really miss it with the chocolately, malty creaminess making it a thoroughly good beer.
Milk Shake: Can Notes
Similar to Wild Brew Co, Wiper and True have found a can format and stuck with it. I'm not sure what exactly a space shuttle has to do with milk shakes, stouts or beer in general, but the gold imagery on the white background looks very classy.
Class is something that can always describe Wiper and True's cans, with the name in large bold lettering above the gold image of something seemingly unrelated making them stand out and always look appealing.
