Coffee Milk Stout by Stone Brewing

Stone Coffee Milk Stout


Name: Coffee Milk Stout
Type: Milk Stout
Brewery: Stone (Escondido, CA)
Year: 2014
ABV and/or IBU: 4.20

It’s weird to think of stone for a light beer, much less a stout. While there is GoToIPA, I know them better for their heavy and stronger beers. The Milk Stout has the appearance of something stronger but has a sweet taste and has a light mouth feel. I wish the coffee was more prominent in the smell and taste, but it’s enjoyable as is.

Netflix Nugget: Want some grilled cheese ese?

key_art_american_meI have mixed feelings about bringing you my next recommendation through “Netflix Nugget”. Whereas the last movie I shared was a very fun trip down memory lane to visit the land of Calvin and Hobbes, I’m going to be cruising down another road of nostalgia to a different part of my past for this one. Growing up in Fresno, I had a lot of Mexican friends; one movie that we watched frequently was American Me. To this day I can’t have a conversation about it without transitioning into an East L.A. accent or depression. However, what are movies if not an artist’s attempt to stir within you some emotion?

*Note* Minimal spoilers ahead.
