Amahl Turczyn created this recipe based off of Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery's (Boulder, CO) chocolate stout; a staple during their annual Stout Month celebration every February. Expect lots of sweet chocolaty notes from the additions of lactose, dark and sweet chocolates.

“I like big stouts and I cannot lie!” Exile Brewing Co's mocha stout is brewed with Brazilian coffee beans from their neighbors up the street, Horizon Line. Roasted coffee and chocolate bitterness balance its smooth malty sweetness.
This 6% milk stout is brewed with lactose which imparts a creamy, sweet character to this overall roast-y and dark chocolate-y brew. Boise Brewing uses two different types of chocolate malt plus a touch or roast to get the dark chocolate character.
From Dan Norton of Nortons Brewing Company: "In the 18 years I've been professionally brewing, I've always brewed a beer in honor of each of my 3 kids. They get to name their beer, and tell me what they want it to taste like. My oldest child came up with Don't Poke the Bear, a chocolate imperial milk stout with vanilla."

Nate Levengood has been brewing beer at home for the better part of the last decade and was excited when he got to team up with Millersburg Brewing Company (Ohio) to brew this Sweet Cream Stout with toasted coconuts.
There were 91 beers judged in the 2016 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) Pro-Am Competition, each having humble beginnings in a kitchen, garage, or back patio. Each beer is an award winner before it even arrives to Denver, having already medaled at a Beer Judge Certification Program/AHA-sanctioned competition and been chosen by a professional brewer for the GABF competition.
Only three of the 91 are dubbed GABF medal winners, but the other 88 are excellent as well. We talked to a few of the non-medal winners about their experiences with the GABF Pro-Am competition and garnered a few recipes in the process. Here is one of them. Enjoy.
Roasted and chocolate malts create hints of coffee and caramel, while the lactose helps balance the beer’s hoppiness. Left Hand Brewing of Longmont, Colo. equates the milk sugar in this stout to the cream in your coffee!
Brewer Chris Kennedy says, "The milk stout base is very milky and chocolatey, and you want to let those characteristics shine through just as strongly as the chai spice. I like to drink the chai stout and not be entirely sure whether the flavors are coming from the chai spices or the milk stout base."
Editor's note: The brewery is now called Spice Trade Brewing and is a stand alone brewery brewing out of Yak & Yeti restaurant in Arvada, CO.
