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!

PhatB420 (602) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 17, 2014
12oz bottle into a fkat rimmed bjs brew house pale ale glass. Pours a thick black with a mesmerizing brown shadr. Lacing is coared brown caramel, plentiful, loose and hangs out throughout thr duration. Aroma is malty sweetm a bit boozy in the finish, cloudy smoke, cocoa, roasty nuts, malts and choco. Taste is mild milk sweet, frontal sweet malts, chewy grians, oatmeal, maple syrup, mild roast coffee and chocolate. Smooth drinkerm flows nicely, abv is apparent at times but never ba deterrent. Great on st, patricks day 2014.

Nice, flavorful stout. Not too bitter, a little sweet. Smells like chocolate and wood. Tastes like roasted coffee beans, with a slightly hoppy finish.

Milk chocolate taste up front with a light malt and chocolate finish. Flat carbonation, creamy texture on palate.

DrinkinWell (174) - - MAR 23, 2014
An underwhelming beer. So much promise, so little delivery. Pours jet black with thick head and lacing. The aromas are lacking--hints of earthy, roasted malts, little else. Very light bodied, slightly creamy. Hints of coffee. An okay beer, nothing special.

marv3mania (161) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Appearance is dark brown color with a two-finger tan head which goes pretty quickly. Aroma is chocolate, espresso, roasted malts, and some malty sweetness. Taste follows the nose. There is a bit of a vegetable quality to both the aroma and taste. This is pretty meh.

Russo (1643) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 21, 2014
Clear dark brown, almost black with an off-white head that faded to a thin lacing. Aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is balanced between sweetness and roasted malt bitterness with hints of chocolate. Medium body and carbonation with a sweet roasted malt bitterness finish.

chucklemation (321) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a small off-white head. The aroma is very slight, with a hint of malts. Taste is more complex, with a combination of sweet chocolate, coffee, malts, some fruit, and even some bitterness as you sip on the last half of the glass. Has a full body mouthfeel that feels nice going down. This is a solid, enjoyable milk stout.
