A Note on This Beer
Pumpkin Spice Lattes have become the stuff of legend, with die hard fanatics waiting anxiously for its yearly release. Every fall, when Belching Beaver Brewery drops their Pumpkin Spice Milk Stout, die hard dark beer drinkers let out a sigh of relief, it’s finally here.
From the bold flavor-forward brewers that brought us the acclaimed Peanut Butter Milk Stout, Belching Beaver's Pumpkin Spice Milk Stout jumps into the season like a mound of fallen leaves. They add pumpkin to their Milk Stout to create that latte-esque experience, but this isnota PSL facsimile, it has considerably less sweetness than a Starbucks’ flavor of the month.
With creamy notes from the lactose sugars, you get more coffee and latte from this Stout than from the actual pumpkin spice lattes. Void of light, this smooth operator mends fiery cinnamon, clove, and spirited nutmeg, so dexterously that all you taste is Autumn.There’s a high level of craftsmanship that beer enthusiasts come to expect from Belching Beaver-- their dark beers pack in flavor that are uniquely desert-y but aren’t overly sweet. Pumpkin Spice Lattes have become America’s guilty pleasure, and during PSL season Pumpkin Spice Milk Stout is the brew that dark beer aficionados should embrace.
