Strawberry Field Milk Stout (ABV 4.7%) is an unique flavor combination of roasted barley- and wheat-malts, lactose (milk sugar), English Kent Golding and Fuggle hops and, of course, fresh Shizuoka strawberries (1 kg per 20 liters wort). The tart flavor and piquant aroma of the strawberries harmonizes ever so delicately with the roasty and sweet character of the malt and they complement with a deft touch the earthy and almost strawberry-like fruity component of the English hops. The milk sugar serves to add body, texture and depth. All of this is in a beer of rather modest gravity and mild alcohol content. Much thanks for this beer is owed to our friends at Serizawa Saketen whose family connections enabled us a glorious morning of strawberry picking!

Pours a deep brown with medium tan highlites and a nice fluffy, tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate, and the faintest bit of strawberry. Medium body. Flavor is roasted, malty, cocoa, and a very faint strawberry flavor. A good stout, but where are the strawberries? Dissapointed in this, otherwise good, stout.

My Bottom Line:
A shy strawberry fruitiness hides within the milk sugar of this otherwise roasty and smooth Milk Stout. Not Baird’s best fruit experiment, but a success nonetheless in my book.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Lasting head atop the brownish black.
-Balance is achieved between the roasted maltiness, the earthy, leafy hops, and the barely tart fruitiness.
-Maltiness and carbonation assure a comfortable session.
-For some reason, I liked this one better than most of the group at the anniversary party.

On tap at the brewery restaurant.

Dark brown color, light brown head. the is understated with faints hints of cocoa and strawberries. Slight sour, dark chocolate mouth with some notes of strawberries. smooth mouth, but lacking complexity. Dry cocoa finish.
