COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Milk Stout
"2 varieties of hops & 3 types of malts"
Milk stout, also called ‘cream’ or ‘sweet’ stout, is a stout containing lactose, a sugar derived from milk. Because lactose is unfermentable by beer yeast, it adds sweetness and body to the finished beer. Milk stouts have been claimed to be nutritious, and were marketed as such in the early 1900s with claims that would make the FDA wince. One ad read, “Ideal for nursing mothers, for the healthy, for the invalid, and for the worker.” Surely! Of course, we couldn’t stop at a traditional milk stout. Ours is a double, an addition to our 2X line, and at 7.5% abv is every bit as delicious as it sounds. To your health!

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Appearance: velvety near-black, with a short, creamy, light tan head and some lacing. Aroma: melted milk chocolate, lightly toasted brown bread, cocoa powder, vanilla, and cream. Taste: sweet dark chocolate and vanilla, with a hint of crème fraiche at the end. Finish: smooth, creamy, with lingering delicately sweet milk and dark chocolate notes. Notes: A lot of milk stouts overdo the lactose, leaving a slightly unpleasant sour-ish twang. In this, the lactose was perfectly subdued, giving just enough body and sweetness without that off note. In essence, this beer was like drinking a dark chocolate jello pudding cup. Absolutely phenomenal. I’d drink this every day.

alexanderj (3539) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle. Dark cola pour with not too much head. Aroma of oatys, caramel and a milk sweetness. A fairly robust and oath version of the style. Roasted oats. Lacking a bit in sweetness too balance

thedm (5667) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body. The mild aroma was dark malt. The semi-thick crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt dark malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

jc1762 (781) - Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2016
Poured into a shaker showing pitch black with latte colored foam. The nose shows freshly ground coffee with hints of dark chocolate. The palate is light bodied and medium carbonated. Very smooth mouthfeel. Obviously sweet due to the extra sugar but not overly so. The finish shows a latte-like bitterness. Accomplishes what it sets out to do.

tfontana (693) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Julio’s Liquors. Aroma is dark fruit and roasted malts with lactose and pungent alcohol. Appearance is almost opaque very dark brown with small light brown head with poor retention and negligible lacing. Taste is as aroma--sweet dark fruits over roasted malts and mild late alcohol. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, average early carbonation with late lively zing to the tip of the tongue, late burnt/ash quality to the finish. Overall, good but alcohol is too present and it is more carbonated than necessary.
