    I think its asking for some fennel seed or star anise. you could even just add real licorice root if the budget is big enough

    The cherry wood/pork roll infusion sounds interesting. The fattyness would play off the bitterness of the stout, but compliment the sweet milk sugars. I can’t wait!!

    Kung-poa pepper please!

    Pumped for this as always. My vote is for Toasted Coconut because it sounds delicious, and it should compliment the awesome milk stout Chris is going to brew, and not overpower it.

    I like the licorice/anise suggestion for a Milk Stout.

    I used to make an awesome Vanilla Bean Imperial Stout (11 – 13%) that had a licoricy taste to it that everyone loved!

    Kung-Pao Pepper Milk Stout!

    Pork Roll would be awesome Chris.

    Coconut. I’m thinking the milk stout + coconut combination will evoke a hint of those addicting “Irish Potato” candies that come out this time of year…
