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!

On tap at CBC, London. it pours an opaquedark brown colour with a tanned head and very good lacing. Aroma of roast coffee, sweet chocolate and molasses. Taste of roast coffee, chocolate sweet caramel and floral hops. Medium/full body and light carbonation with velvety mouthfeel.

realaledrinker (35) - Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Poured dark with a small and quickly disappearing head. Malty characteristics were more than one might expect. It is smooth and full on the palate but the sweetness hid most of the roasted character that was present in the aroma. Overall a pretty good beer but far from my favorite.

This is definilty a bitter milk stout. Stouts are usually a bit more smooth on the palate. Bitter doesnt mean sour... just bitter. Not bad. not great either. I can’t say I wouldn’t skip it again but not top of my list.

solidfunk (4301) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Smells very smoky. Lots of dark, roasted malt as well. Pours pretty black. Aroma of nuts, coffee and a little lactose in there. Some booze as well. Medium carbonation. Taste is sweet and bitter - a good balance between them both. Really enjoyed this one. Bottle from Village Beer Merchant.

jgb9348 (4806) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, raisins, pit fruits, caramel, toffee and a hint of milk. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong lactic flavours at first with oatmeal, a bit of nuts and a ton of roasted malt and bitter cofffee notes with a little caramelised sugar sweetness on the back end. Aftertaste is a bit complex with the good sour lactic notes at first followed by a pleasant sweetness and a good deep bitter flavour with not much alcohol notes and a solid body. Overall, a nice beer - definitely one to sample as the days get shorter and the nights get chillier. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-April-2012 for US$1.65 sampled at home in Washington on 01-December-2012.
