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!

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Taste the same with some malty sweetness, caramel, licorice, vanilla and some nutty flavors. Very nice complex ale. Little to no lacing in the glass. Medium palate.

Jethro6191 (503) - Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Pours a very dark brown with a thin wispy tan head. The aroma is rich and creamy with notes of roasted barley, chocolate, and coffee. Dark roasted grains, chocolate, espresso, and vanilla flavors. Moderate hop bitterness. Full bodied with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel with residual sweetness. Overall a very good stout, dark and sweet with nice coffee and chocolate notes.

SG111 (811) - New York, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Canned. Pours light coffee color, ok-sized head. It looks like a milk-stout, definitely not too dark in color, or too roasted as far as malts go. Aroma is sweet chocolate, sweet almost to the point that I feel like I’m picking up sweet dark fruit notes, like raisin, or cherry. So mostly sweet chocolate and that lactose sweetness. Flavor is silky smooth stout, definitely get that creamy lactose milk sweetness.

Bottle. Pours a dark black, a bit watery looking, almost no head. Aroma of toasted malts, semi sweet chocolate, coffee. Flavor followed the nose perfectly. Body was medium and the texture was on the thin side. Carbonation was average and the finish was slightly bitter.

Pours an opaque dark brown almost black color with khaki colored head. Chocolate, roasted malts, and some earthiness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied, nice and smooth. Finishes with more milk chocolate and roasted malt flavors.

furthur (656) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle, deep black, almond colored head fades to a ring. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, dried plums, cookies. Taste is chocolate, rootbeer, vanilla, faint anise, coffee. Palate is smooth, but not heavy. This is a bit sweet, but gets dry at the finish. This is excellent, and I usually don’t like sweet stouts, but this has great balance!
