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!

ARH (733) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2015
On nitro, poured into a shaker. The aroma is chocolate malt, bread, and lactose sugar. It pours dark and opaque, with a brown-black hue and a soft, dense, nitro foam, tan head with an ample, thick ring retained, and a thick, wisp surface coverage accompanied by a runny, dense, sheet lace. The taste is a medium sweet and medium bitter; perhaps slightly more bitter at finish and aftertaste. It’s smooth and fairly thin with a lightly prickly, creamy carbonation, and a medium body containing notes of chocolate milk, cookie, a touch of salted caramel, and a touch of raisin and nuts. A grainy bread crust and coffee flavor emerges at the finish and a toasty, dark chocolate, and coffee lingers with some ash. It becomes a bit sticky as it warms up.

WABeerFiend (286) - - JAN 16, 2015
Bottled on date of 12.26.13. Poured into a goblet on 05.28.14. A: 1 finger tan head. Midnight black with no red. S: Toffee, chocolate, malt, roastiness. T: Raisin and dark fruit dominate. Roastiness and woodiness are subtle. M: Creamy. O: This is a solid stout. The woodiness is stronger in this one than others. It is well balanced, but there are better stouts than this one.

joejames (287) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours mahogany-black, quick small light brown head, no lacing or retention. Aroma of chocolate, bacon and roasted malt. Taste is very sweet, with bitterness of dark chocolate and dark roast coffee. Full bodied, carbonation is low and the mouth feel is sticky sweet. Finishes long and sweet with tasting notes of chocolate, cream, vanilla, burnt caramel, coffee, slight alcohol and raisin. Complex and interesting. Not bad!

mrjaxson (336) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bittersweet chocolate, a little like the Nestle Quik powdery deliciousness from my 1960s youth, comes through on this very tasty stout. Very boozy for a milk stout but you can’t tell from the taste. Enjoyable on a cold Wisconsin night.

bartlebier (2401) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2014
12oz bottle, shared by bastarda at oldmanriver’s potluck post-Nikolaus tasting 12/2014. Crème brûlée mitigated by lactose-sedated stout smoothness, with a suave hop back. Well-balanced, administering equal doses of coffee, caramel and oat smoothness. Not entirely sure what the extra alcohol adds to the style in this case though.

shared with Bierle, bartlebier and Oldmanriver. Full-bodied, balanced, juicy double milk stout, with aromas and taste of chocolate, coffee, toast. Well done!

This beer is very smooth it has a very good head and holds it very well. It poured a dark to black color and left a good malty flavor in your mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
