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!

FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
12 ounce bottle- poured out a nice opaque reddish-brown with a moderate head. Aroma was a nice brown sugar and malt. Taste was brown sugar with a strong alcohol back. Palate was smooth and creamy, very nice. Just one question, Southern Tier Brewing is in...New York? This Georgia man finds that mildly disturbing...

12 fl.oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a light tan thin head. Aroma is subtle chocolaty and a little sour. Palate is medium body with soft carbonation. Sweet and bitter aftertaste. Taste is shallow of roasted malts and chocolate. Slightly sour and bitter with vague notes of hops. Overall a very light and easy milk stout without much complexity (or taste). Not great but very drinkable.

dagimp (817) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bought as part of a mixed six at wegmans. Date on bottle is 3-19-12 so it's a good 10 months old. Brown sugar, cocoa and dirt aroma. Very md head which slowly dissipates into nothing. Very light body for a stout of this abv. Taste is very hardcore cocoa and espresso. A solid stout. Glad I tried it but nothing I'd buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (9918) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Opaque pitch black, small light brown head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell and taste malts, roastyness and some sweetness. Slightly a hint of coffee. Soft carbonation, low to medium body. Expected a bit more of this but it’s still a nice beer.

Bottle @ home. Opaque black with a lacing beige head. Smells slightly roasty, chocolate, sweet. Tastes roasty, coffee, chocolate, sweet. Very decent but not shockingly good. Medium body, soft carbo.

LinusStick (2990) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2013
A delicious sweet stout. Haven’t had one of these in a while. Aroma was decent. Chocolate, roasted malt and milk. Pretty sweet. Pour was a deep dark black with a small splotchy tan head. Taste was delicious. Sweet and milky with a perfect balance of bitter roasted malt and chocolate. Nice carbonation. Very good beer. Not cloying or overly sweet. Just enough of everything.

msalm (59) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2013
just okay...lacks complexity. weak head, light nose, body is soft with a lightly abrasive exit...the 7.5 is well masked by sweet chocolate notes and the faintest whiff of fruit and coffee...really, a forgettable experience.

Sweet stout. Nice body. Enjoyed this Southern Tier offering. Recommend this for those who don’t like a boozy imperial stout, but also don’t like a watered down weak stout.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours black with a nice light brown head and a little bit of lacing, aroma has a little bit of chocolate with not a lot else, some malt coming through, the flavor has a nice chocolate front with a sweet finish, nice mouthfeel, solid beer.
