Beer Of The Month – September

Moloko

We hate to say it but fall is coming whether you are ready for it or not. With changing seasons comes new beers, so this month Ken and Brad decided to pick a beer to help usher in the coming cold weather. The Hop Cast September beer of the month is the Moloko Milk Stout from Three Floyds. If you watch the Hop Cast often you know that Brad and Ken are huge Three Floyds fans so its really no surprise for them to pick one of Three Floyds beers as a beer of the month. The Moloko recently just started appearing on the shelves again. It is usually available for three to four months in the fall to early winter. When you pour out the Moloko it is pitch black with a small one finger chocolaty brown head. Coffee and sweet chocolate notes begin to erupt from the glass. In addition there are some nice overtones of vanilla and caramel adding nice depth. Don’t be scared if this beer is a little too sweet at first. The sweet malts and sugar hit you right off. But immediately that Inteligencia coffee kicks in and washes out the heavy sweet taste. The bitter tasting coffee is combined with a dash of hops to help balance the entire beer out. For a 7% ABV this beer isn’t too heavy but it does leave your mouth feeling silky and creamy after every sweet sip. If you’re lucky enough to pick up a bottle while it is available, you can easily enjoy it alone or share it with friends. Another great beer from Three Floyds!
