Curreently, 4 Hands brewing is my favorite brewery in St Louis (followed closely by FOBAB multi-medalist Perennial). 4 Hands’ beers are consistently outstanding. My only caveat is you have to really like hops, but who doesn’t? Today’s beer is not hoppy, the Chocolate Milk Stout.
Some Chocolate Milk Stouts will have a harsh or burnt characteristics because of the blend of cocoa and chocolate malts–not this one! 4 Hands really built a smooth milk stout that is easy drinking. Great chocolate nose and the finish is smooth. If you have the opportunity to try some of their beers, I highly recommend it. If you are taking in a show at The Old Rock House or a Cardinals ballgame (when in season), recommend a stop in before or after the game.
Enjoy! Beer Mentor
