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!

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a quickly diminishing light brown frothy head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of vanilla, hay and light malts. Medium sweet and light to medium bitter in a light body, oily to sticky mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a sticky sweet finish. Hides the alcohol moderately well.

Jimsal27 (235) - New York, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Pours black out of bottle with tan head. Aroma is vanilla, malt. Taste follows nose. Mouthfeel tends towards thin with lively carbonation. I enjoyed this beer and would drink it again but I feel it’s more like a imperial stout then a milk stout.

Solid milk stout. Has some lactose and sweetness, but fortunately also some roasted malt and mild hopping.

Transfer from BA - Poured from bottle into snifter. Appearance - Pours a very deep brown, almost black. A head is basically nonexistnat and not a whole lot of lacing either. Smell - Some chocolate and cocoa aroma with a very small amount of a sweet caramel like aroma. Overall for its style I would have expected a bit more. Taste - Up front you are hit with a big sweet-chocolate (like chocolate milk) flavor. While paling in comparison to the cocoa, a little bit of roasted malt, coffee, and dried fruit flavors work their way toward the end. A very nice flavor profile. Mouthfeel - It has a thinner body then would be expected, but not by too much. The carbonation was possibly a bit too high, but again not bad. Overall - The taste of the brew makes of for some lacking in other catagories. A nice stout to try

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, schokoladig. Geschmack nach süßer Schokolade, Kaffee, leicht röstmalzig.

Pours dark with the nice cascade (on nitro) with mocha cream head. Smells light nutty. Tastes of creamy coffee with a light hoppy finish.

mcox90 (1538) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2014
On tap at my local hang out. Served in a 16 oz. shaker pint. Poured black with a thin beige ring on a head. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa and lactose. Milk chocolate flavor with enough bittering to keep the sweetness in check. Medium palate, not as full as I would have expected.
