Wiper & True are a brewery who like to tinker and make things a little out of the ordinary. Milkshake Milk Stout is laced with vanilla pods and brings notes of chocolate, coffee and dried dark fruits. The sweet and creamy flavour has a little spicy earthiness from British hops. This is the second beer from the inaugural Needle & Pin dark beer selection box.
Open it up and what do you get? It’s a gentle, sweet and creamy vanilla milk stout. Very smooth without being too sweet, there’s certainly something ice cream like about it, a creamy milk shake quality. I was expecting a little more carbonation perhaps, but this was a very pleasant and easy going stout.
