Milk Man by Confluence Brewing Company in Iowa, United States

About Milk Man by Confluence Brewing Company

This is our salute to the embodiment of reliable home delivery in the mid-20th Century: the milk man. Like the profession it honors, this stout reliably delivers an extremely rich and smooth black brew with notes of chocolate and a hint of coffee. We used Irish stout malt, Special B, chocolate malt, roasted barley, and flaked oats. The addition of lactose at the end of the boil adds a pleasant sweetness. Milk Man Milk Stout is a collaboration between guest brewer Mike Gauthier and Confluence Head Brewer, John Martin. Cheers to Mike and all who enjoy a dark, delicious treat.

It all started, improbably enough, with a failed attempt to make “raisin almond beer.”
