A sweet style of English Stout made with lactose from cow’s milk. Lower in alcohol than our other offerings, but still possessing high amounts of rich, creamy flavors. Unfiltered. Originally produced by English brewers in the late 1800’s who touted a positive health benefit to those who consumed this elixir.

Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Cola colored pour with a beige head. Aroma has caramel and earth with some chocolate. Taste is caramel and chocolate, with light lactose and some coffee notes, with sugar and a bit of smoke. Thin for a stout. Medium bodied. Some alcohol. Finishes more sweet than bitter and smoky. Decent, just a bit thin. 13.4

Bottle. Poured a very dark garnet, very attractive! Good aroma. Taste is pleasant but not as creamy or milky as I would have expected. Aftertaste is a bit sour. Good flavor and all-around enjoyable, but not what you might expect.

Lemke10 (971) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 24, 2014
This pours a very dark brown color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is big with a robust and sweet scent. This is a thinner, sweet stout that delivers lots of flavors. Very robust and sweet that leaves a slight chalky after taste. Very good for the style.

Fresh bottle. Pours black with brown bordering. Aroma is light roast coffee, soy sauce. Taste is bitter, earthy. I'm not getting anything creamy or milky here. Slight bitter aftertaste. Perplexing.

On tap. Ours dark brown with beige head that sticks around. Almost no lacing. Pretty one dimensional...coffee bean in the nose . Similar in the taste with some lactose. I don’t get why this rates so well.

wlajwl (5829) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is heavy roasted malts, coffee, mild milk sweetness and a mix of bitterness and acidity in the finish.

Okay example of the style. Predominantly coffee bean; the lactose evens it out but the bitterness sticks around quite a while. A little sour and/or too hoppy but nice carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a black body with an egg white head and thin retention. Milk sugars, lactose sweetness, light chocolate malt tones, a touch of burnt malts and a light sugar tone. Creamy medium body soft carbonation. Decent milk stout.
