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!

Nice roated nutty flavor. Head dissipated quite quickly but left lacing through the whole beer. Overall, fantastic beer. As usual, Southern Tier does it again.

Sweetness expected from a milk stout is overpowered by heavy hop bitterness. Thinner body than I would expect from a double milk stout. A bit disappointing.

kramer (4694) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black, body under a small frothy light brown head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty great, lots of sweet lactose and chocolate malt with a nice roastiness and just a minimal hint of hops. The flavor is pretty well balanced between the sweetness from the lactose and the dry roasted malt bitterness. Lots of roast and chocolate up front, but it finishes a bit chalky and burnt tasting. Tastes fairly light and doesn’t let on that it’s 7.5% ABV. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Some lingering roast and burnt chalky malt. Decent enough.
