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!

Shag (2805) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2013
Nitro tap - A black appearance with the standard perfect beige head. The aroma is faint for a stout with chocolate and coffee mainly showing up. The flavor is a bit sweet with some chocolate, milky notes, and a bit of something burnt going on. There is an out of place sour element in the finish. Overall wasn’t that great but didn’t totally suck or anything.

DiarmaidBHK (4151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2013
Bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. Pours black with a thin khaki head that leaves some lacing. Big malt notes on the nose. Definitely get a lot of the lactose on the tongue and the finsih which seems to bring out the roasted quality of the malt. Solid.

jeremyh70 (1036) - Missouri, USA - APR 17, 2013
Brown with a small head and little lacing. Aroma of chocolate, brewed coffee and roasted malt. Chocolate comes through in taste with some lactose sweetness and a burnt roast flavor that is bitter and harsh. Mouthfeel is semi creamy and medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The unpleasant aftertaste from the roast ruins this beer for me. ---Jeremy H

jonas (6644) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 15, 2013
Bottle. Black, low head. Roast aroma. Demera sugar, cedar, coffee notes, light wood and lactic notes. Fitting medium to light body. Sparkly roast finish. Slightly unusual but ultimately pleasant.

eruizgarcia (302) - - APR 15, 2013
Almost black with a foamy but short lived head. Very sweet flavor, no hops, can hardly tell there’s any alcohol. Strong roasty coffee and caramel aroma. Good, bit too light bodied and sweet, could use some more complexity.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2013
The aroma was roasted malts fused with molasses and a touch of hops, but the appearance was black with a small off-white head. Furthermore, the taste was quite umami, slightly swee, and a touch bitter, which completely matched the soft carbonation, long malty finish, medium body, and slick texture.

DocJitsu (1586) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Pours an opaque very dark brown with a short-lived light mocha colored head. Smoke, cherry, and coffee on the nose. Mouthfeel is remarkble for the style. It’s like carbonation fizz encapsulated by a slick, thin-membraned bubble. Some coffee up front. Cherry appears at the finish. Very drinkable. I’m drinking Edmund Fitzgerald along with this beer and have found 2X Stout to be the better beer, in my opinion. Ed Fitz is too heavily carbonated.

AirForceHops (5971) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Draft @ Three Needs. Aroma of rich dark chocolate malt and coffee traces. Really nice flavors in this stout. Chocolate, coffee with cream I taste upfront with molasses and vanilla toward the finish. They had to have added a hop someplace in this brew to knock down the sweetness. I don’t detect it but it must be here. Full body with a semi dry finish. No alcohol found. Sweet stout lovers will drool for this.

Lowenbrau (3132) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Slightly roasted aromas, along with some sweet and subtle sour ones. Pours black, with ambe reflections, off-white head, vnishing, poor lacing. Taste is sweet, some roasty flavous, a bit watery. Medium body (some more body would be nice), soft carbonation, oily texture.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Dark brown almost black with a dense tan head. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, mineral and caramel. Flavor is roasty bitterness, chocolate, sweet caramel and vanilla. Medium to full body with average carbonation. Good stout, balanced with the strong roastiness and sweetness.
