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!

GregClow (2975) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Deep dark chocolate-brown with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is rich and sweet, with chocolate and cream, a hint of espresso, and some burnt caramel. Body isn’t quite as big as the Dark Water beers, but is still substantial. Flavour is just a smidge too sweet, but still a good combo of chocolate, vanilla, coffee & cream, with nice notes of dark roasted coffee beans and slightly charred cocoa beans in the finish.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Ar: Light charcoal and some tart and herbal notes. Ap: Deep brown, opaque - small light tan head with medium-low retention, leaving a very thin ring with some hazy foam. T: Chocolate and char - dark malt bitterness, with some burnt coffee - medium-low sweetness, malt sharpness - bitterness is medium-low - finish is roast. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Some interesting flavors, but it doesn’t quite come together - too sharp, overall.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pours a stark black, with faint glints of sunset red/orange. Head is nutty ivory, and short but lacey. Nose is of roasted malts, grainy oats, light coffee. Taste starts with smooth and earthy roasted malts, with light caramel, toffee, and smooth cream. Very little bitterness coming through, but nice earthy hops make a balanced appearance on the finish. Palate is smooth, and medium, very drinkable.

Colour is black. Is smells of chocolate with a roasted note. Taste begins with chocolate but then quickly turns into roasted cocoa bean finish of which I found delightful. There could have been a little more to this beer but for the most part I enjoy it. We are friends now.

scarletfire65 (1091) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle at home. Black pour. Aroma of light roast and chocolate. The flavor is similar, with an ashy bitter finish. Medium bodied with good lactose sweetness. Doesn’t stand out, lacks complexity.

Countbeer (5263) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized tan light brown head, changes quick in a lacing on top of a black colore beer. Aroma is mostly (toasted) malts and milk with hints of chocolate, coffee and cream. The flavour is a creamy mix of autumnal leaves, malts, leaves, light toast, bitter (keeps growing), some milk, roasted malts which are pushed to the back and dominated by the milk and cream, some toasted herbs and a sprinkle of spices. Aftertaste is bitter with some milk, malts, toast and herbs with a hint of chocolate. Low carbo, soft creamy light spicy mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture. Nice beer, nothing crazy, but good bitterness and drinks pretty easy.
