Dry Stouts are to Espresso as Milk Stouts are to Macchiatos. Milk Stouts begin just as many Stouts begin - with Pale type Malts coupled with Roasted Malts for color and bite. The addition of Lactose sugar is what gives a Milk Stout its je ne sais quois- joke sorta stolen from Steve Martin. Lactose sugar isnít really fermented by yeast the way other sugars are and it remains in the brew as a modifier. Lactose gives a light sweetness without being cloying and I think a nice silkiness to the beer as well. At 4.4% you can have a few and decide if Iím right and you can really get into my sorta-stolen Steve Martin Joke.
