Bay Road Brewing ‘Cake Chaser’ Milk Stout


“Cake Chaser is a dessert milk stout with hints of coconut, raspberry and chocolate. It’s sweet, luscious and rich, but with an unrivalled drinkability. Cake Chaser is beer’s answer to a slice of the fudgiest birthday cake you’ve ever had.”

Glassware: Snifter.

Appearance: Uber dark brown with a fluffy two finger head nestled atop. Excellent retention and tonnes of thick lace clings to the glass as it ebbs.

Aroma: Lovely wafts of sweet and tart cherry, mulberry and blackberry cut through the layers of milk chocolate, cake mix, vanilla/lactose, toasted coconut, licorice and cookie dough. Not a whole lot else to be uncovered but it’s a pretty decent nose.

Flavour: Lacking big time. The prominent cherry and berries in the aroma gets lost in a malty mess which unfortunately has no real stand out flavour. This just continues in to a malty finish with a very subtle roast on the back palate.

Mouthfeel: Pretty well structured actually…nice and smooth, rounded, medium bodied. 7% ABV is well hidden. Co2 is spot on.

Overall: Some good traits and some not so good. The flavour profile is all over the place and really the only downside to the beer. Not bad.
