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!

eduardovl (987) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a big snifter glass. A: Pours a blackish brown color forming a small but quite creamy beige head. Medium retention and only small spotty lacings left in the glass S: Strong notes of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Biscuity. Earthy yeast profile. Great notes of flowery hops in the end T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of roasted malts, coffee, milk and dark chocolate follows by a sharp hops bitterness in the end. Great balance of roasted malts bitterness and hops bitterness M: Heavy, creamy and milky body. Smooth. Good carbonation (a bit too much, indeed). Roasted malts and hops in the aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Delicious American Milk Stout [ BA Review @ 6/5/2014 ]

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique May 2013. Everything that you want in a stout is in this beer- deep black colour, great aroma and flavour with malt, chocolate and a bitter finish.

Drank out of a mason jar poured from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegmans. Wonderful aromas of chocolately, roasted sweetness. Pours almost black, a nice light brown head, and very little carbonation. A delicious stout, one of the best stouts I have ever had and I’m a stout person.

10/1/14. Bottle. Pours almost black with minimal head and some lacing. Mild but roast nose dominated by malt. Bitter dominates the sweet with bitter coffee and licorice notes. Somewhat thin given the ABV but still a nice mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jamesthebrit (309) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Aroma is roasty. Hint of sweetness. Hop oil in there. Pours a dark brown. Tan head with little retention. Taste is hoppy. Dull hops. A hint of sweetness that gives a good compliment. Roastiness is good. Mouth is medium light. Decently smooth. Hops linger on the finish. Overall an interesting beer. The backbone is strong against the lactose but the hops overpower. Solid beer.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 7.5%. It’s also lists the malts and hops used. Appearance: The body has a very dark brownish black color which blocks out all light. It is topped off with a nice light tan head of foam. This foam hangs on well and makes good lacing on the glass. Smell: As I popped the top on this one I immediately picked up on the sweet maltiness of the beer. In the glass it is fairly light overall and I get notes of toasted bread, molasses and dark caramel with just the slightest touch of dark roasted coffee in the background. Taste / Palate: It starts off with a quick flash of sweet maltiness and caramel like notes then it quickly adds a heavy dose of dark almost burnt toast and dark roasted coffee bitterness. The hops support this bitterness in the finish. The palate feels smooth, creamy and full but definitely not overly so. I have had thicker milk stouts, some to the point of being cloying sweet and hard to drink. ST 2x Stout stays quite drinkable and enjoyable.

12 oz. bottle. It pours a very dark brown/black color with a khaki/tan head. The aroma is pretty subdued with some dark cocoa, black bread and some mild lactose sweetness. The flavor is bready and chocolaty with a smooth, creamy body and a nice mild sweetness that is off set by a rich, bitter dark chocolate finish. Pretty decadent and very delicious.
