And as the beers roll on we find KingBob and his glorious band of adventurers (I’m feeling in a Skyrim mood…look it up) rolling into the state of New York for the next beer, #355, Mother’s Milk by Keegan Ales. Brewed and bottled in Saratoga Springs, New York, this Milk or Sweet Stout has an ABV of 6%. According to the label, Keegan Ales is The Hudson Valley’s Brewery. This is also my first beer from Keegan Ales and that in itself is very cool!
To the pour…and this was another beer that was black in color with a small light brown head. The nose was a fairly mild malty roasted concoction made up of cocoa, coffee, chocolate, and a bit of a smoky camp fire-esque aroma. I took a sip and was greeted by a ever so slight sweetness. I tasted milk chocolate followed by the slightly bitter and a bit course in texture cocoa mixed with a bit of smoke. It finished with a dark roasted coffee flavor that lasted into the aftertaste. It had a slightly heavier than medium body with some light tingling carbonation. It was quite easy to drink.
This was a solid brew that I only wish was a tiny bit smoother and creamier. Now it is off to plan out my last 10 beers of this 365. I really am thinking of going all American big brewers like Bud, Miller and Coors for those last 10…I kid. It will be a cold day in KingBob’s realm before I sink that low. And now KingBob and his merry band of adventures must pack up and move on to our next destination…where that is I have no idea. I still haven’t visited my go to beer store to know the answer to that.
And then there were 10…
