This is my first ever beer from Wiper and True, another craft brewer from what is fast becoming the hoptastic hotbed that is the South West of England.

Without a facility to call home, they describe themselves as nomadic and brew in a number of locations, an approach that seems to work well for established beer guerrillas Evil Twin.

This bottle of their Milk Shake Milk Stout was part of my most recent order from Hoptimism.

It pours a think glossy dark brown, almost black, with no real carbonation or head to speak of.

The nose is delightful, with chocolate, brown sugar and vanilla giving it the aroma of a decadent desert.

All of this carries through into the flavour, along with some rich malts; if you try and imagine a beer crossed with a luxurious dark chocolate truffle then you're somewhere close to what this Milk Stout offers.

This really is a very good milk stout, full of flavour with barely a hint of any alcohol. I look forward to ploughing through many more of the Wiper and True range.


  1. One of my favourites from what is a fairly local brewer to me. If you get a chance try their mimosa wheat beer, it's gorgeous!

  2. Sounds yummy! I'm very intrigued by this "nomadic" brewery trend. Very interesting!

  3. Sounds delicious. I was just introduced to the brewmaster of Two Ton Brewing and he also brews at other breweries. He called it gypsy brewing which I thought was interesting.
