Joe Sent Me label
Milk Stout

Joe Sent Me

5.2% alc./vol. — 27 ibu

When prohibition was gripping North America, the phrase ‘Joe Sent Me’ was the universal code used to gain access into underground pubs. Use this same expression at Refined Fool to gain access into flavour country.

Dark roasted grains are the forefront of the beer, leading to coffee and chocolate flavours, along with some caramel and roasted malt notes. A heavy and creamy mouthfeel, in addition to a sweet finish due to the addition of lactose.
