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!

jonnyguns (1104) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Poured into a tulip glass. Sexy tanned head with a dark black pour. Nose has a subtle blend of coffee and roasted malt. Hint of milk chocolate in there. Taste is much like the aroma very inoffensive nothing really jumping at me. Very tamed milk stout. Soft carbonation and soft mouthfeel. Very easy to drink but was after something more big and bold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2013
At just on cool this pours an opaque, darkest brown, almost black. Lifts up a decent, foamy tan head that holds well and leaves a thick lace. Smoky, burnt cedar and peppery, Hungarian Salami on the nose; heavily roasted coffee, light butter, light cocoa in there too. Creamy, smooth and silky on the palate. Bitter, burnt coffee bean and spicy, bitter hops on the finish. Medial almost lean body; luckily with good presence. No lactose or milk sugars evident; pretty dry overall. Malty, sandy, gritty roasted midpalate; smoke and ash linger long between sips. No alcohol presence. Not much here. Goes down alright but is mostly forgettable. Hoped for more!

Ed5388 (3000) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown/black color with a decent amount of dark mocha colored head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and caramel. Taste is loads of dark chocolate, sweet roasted malt, and a touch of pine bitterness in the finish.

hawthorne00 (3310) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Gloopy pour. Black with a light tan head. Aroma of milky chocolate, mild roast, cardamon, vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. Rich, milky sweet with fudge, chocolate and coffee, Less roasty than suggested by the aroma. Some light floral notes along with the Indian sweetmeat spices. Bitterness creeps up to partially arrest the sweet finish. No sign of the alcohol. Nice, cuddly beer.

Ferris (10744) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle - Dark chocolate and roast malts. Jet black and thin brown head. Roast malts with a sugar sweetness and some bitter chocolate. Smooth and rich on the palate. Quick hit of bitterness that fades nicely.

fidemaster (296) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Light Aroma or chocolate. Rich deep black color. Nice rich creamy, chocolatey taste. Combined with lots of malt, caramel, and toffee. It has a nice complex flavor. It has a sharp bitter finish. I wish it had less of a bitter finished because the initial flavor is so pleasant.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a very dark brown with a medium, foamy light tan head which lasts the duration. Nose is very lactose forward with a fair bit of dry sweetness and roastiness. Lots of vanilla. Taste is all about the sugar and lactose. Vanilla forward with cream and soy notes. Sort of nutty in a way. Very creamy mouth feel which works in it’s favour. Rather sweet and focuses a lot on that which doesn’t. Not bad

355 ml bottle from wegmans in Niagara Falls. Black, tan head. Nice and roasty, well hopped. Doesn’t drink like a sweet stout. I like this a lot but it isn’t what it says it is.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Aroma of metals, coffee and chocolate maybe. Taste is strong with roasted malts. Chocolatey and ffruity aftertaste.
