- Product Details
- A jet-black ale with a roasted-malt character that's offset by residual sweetness and full body - think of sweetened black coffee. De-bittered black and chocolate malts yield a pronounced - but not harsh - roast grain quality, while lactose (an unfermentable milk-based sugar) yields a rich sweetness and creamy mouthfeel. Very nice as an after-dinner drink instead of coffee, or with chocolate desserts.

- 4.6 / 5.040 ReviewsSufficiently Subtle SweetnessBeer such as this was meant to be enjoyed throughout the long winters of the northern Midwest! This is my favorite brew (and beverage) from now through March! The subtle sweetness, the ample body and alcohol content are sufficient to keep me warm in the coldest evenings.October 23, 2013Always SweetThe sweet stout continues to be one of my favorite kits and I was not disappointed. The dry yeast works so very well, too.October 7, 2015Fabulous!Best beer ever! I'm the only home-brewing chick that my co-workers know (I'm an engineer), so I brewed this in October specifically to share during the holidays. Wow, what a response! Hate bottling (got kegs for christmas ), let it sit in secondary for over 5 weeks, it was out of this world. One guy buddy raved, "Words fail", and even my fiancŽe, who is OK with but not a beer freak like me, loves this beer. It will be the first I keg when my keezer is done next month. ,March 5, 2015Fantastic Stout!first off, I added 5 vanilla beans to secondary for a nice vanilla stout...that said, this stout is fantastic. Addition of lactose give it a creamy mouthfeel, similar to Guiness without having to be carbed with nitrogen. Smooth as silk and tasty! Will brew again.December 10, 2013Always greatI love how personal the items from Northern Brewer feel when I receive them. The products I purchased are always fresh and come together to make some amazing beers.July 8, 2016I want more!!!I can't believe how great this beer tastes. I want to brew this again and again. Super easy to brew and the taste is unbelivable. 5 stars!!!December 7, 2011Great brew!I made this as my second brew and everyone that tried it was blown away! I even made a rather large error in the primary and it STILL ended up being my whole crews favorite. I used a starter and pitched before the temperature was optimal. As such I got some esters that really ended up adding a good kick to the final product. I used Munton's KreamyX Priming Agent at bottling and the final product had some great hints of chocolate and bananas. All in all I will be brewing this again.May 4, 2010For those who don't care for stoutI've shared this brew with non-stout drinkers. After reluctantly trying it, they agree it is not like other stouts they've had. It is smooth with a pleasant dark chocolate finish.I think of this as a dessert beer, if there is such a thing.Very pleasant and enjoyable.November 19, 2013Best Dark Beer I Have BrewedNot a big dark beer drinker but love variety so I thought I'd try this one. Gave it 4 weeks in the bottle and brewed exactly to NB guide. Without a doubt my best dark brew ever. My friends love it and it won't last long. Time in the bottle is important. Like Yum its in my rotation. Really great brew. Head is perfect when poured right not too sweet but not at all bitter.May 2, 2014Spectacular Smooth Stout!Okay so my first stout made and I'm really excited how it turned out. I love dark beers vs. my wife who's not a big fan....at all. This beer turned into a very easy smooth drinking stout with a great cream flavor. Not to heavy and not to light...I will be sure to visit this one again. This beer won over several light beer drinkers. Well done Northern Brewer!!! Highly recommended!!!February 13, 2010
- Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 3 answersWhat FG is everyone getting? Mine was 1.022 at transfer to secondary. My OG was 1.053. Also, I did a full boil, otherwise followed the recipe. It's been in the secondary for 9 days. Thanks!BEST ANSWER: I followed the recipe pretty much. My OG was 1.054. I transferred to the secondary on day 8, but did not take a hydrometer reading. I also added 5 teaspoons of vanilla extract to the secondary at this point. Bottled on day 21 with a FG of 1.022. Been in the bottle about a month and a half and it's getting better and better.
