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!

341ml bottle from Craft Beer Cellar drank at 14C.Aroma: good nose of milk chocolate, wood. App: black with brown tint, small beige head little retention. Taste and palate: medium body, smooth, chocolaty, watery, subtle bitter finish. Overall: nose is great but this is kinda watery. As much as I don’t really enjoy the watery feeling it?s how this should be. Smooth, not too tasty, sweet with light bitterness. That’s how Milk Stouts should be. This rating is more based on what it deserves than how I enjoyed it. Well done!

Bottle @ Friends/the chef. Appearance: pours clear dark brown with ok soapy beige head and lacing. aroma/taste: milk chocolate, chocolate, coffee and some citrus notes. palette: medium to strong malty aroma, average carbonation, medium to full body, medium to notable sweetness, somewhat balanced by a medium bitterness, average duration and a creamy texture. Overall: Tasteful and nicely roasted milk stout - usually not fond of the genre but this one works well .

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
355ml bottle. Black in colour with a thin beige head, light lacing. The aroma is of lactose, white sugar, some vanilla, light roast. The flavour is sweet first with some roasty malts, light chocolate, nutty. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet with a roasted bitterness. Thinner then their other stouts but quite drinkable.

Dead of Winter maybe the best time for a strong stout. 2X Stout being a coffee dominated sweet stout with full black body, tan head and strong alcohol warming fits the bill. Licorice, chocolate and roast round out the Double Milk Stout.

Pours a dark black with tan head. Has a faint aroma of chocolate and malt. A strong taste of coffee, dark chocolate, hops, grains, vanilla, and toasted malts. A dry aftertaste from the malts and grains.

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours black with tan froth head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, toast, milk. Taste of same with coffee. Finish is bitter choc. Mouthfeel is mod-thick, decent carb. Really just tastes like heavy alcohol choc milk.

Bottle poured into a Lagunitas jar. Deep, dark aroma, opaque dark brown color with a small head. Not too heavy bodied and the by now standard (and to me quite annoying) combo of chocolate and coffee grounds flavors are pretty well muted, as is the lactose sweetness, also a plus with me. There’s a quite acceptable moderate bitterness on the finish and the alcohol is well disguised. There is a little bit of dank dogginess in the middle of the flavor (or was I just sitting next to a wet dog while drinking?). Anywho, pretty decent milk stout and I will have another, thank you...
