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!

Bittersweet chocolate, a little like the Nestle Quik powdery deliciousness from my 1960s youth, comes through on this very tasty stout. Very boozy for a milk stout but you can’t tell from the taste. Enjoyable on a cold Wisconsin night.

12oz bottle, shared by bastarda at oldmanriver’s potluck post-Nikolaus tasting 12/2014. Crème brûlée mitigated by lactose-sedated stout smoothness, with a suave hop back. Well-balanced, administering equal doses of coffee, caramel and oat smoothness. Not entirely sure what the extra alcohol adds to the style in this case though.

shared with Bierle, bartlebier and Oldmanriver. Full-bodied, balanced, juicy double milk stout, with aromas and taste of chocolate, coffee, toast. Well done!

This beer is very smooth it has a very good head and holds it very well. It poured a dark to black color and left a good malty flavor in your mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2014
On tap @ Amundsen. This is a deep and dark brown looking one, only a small filmy sidesticking little brownish head. Smells mildly brown sugar sweet with nice sweet chocolate and roasted malty tones. It’s quite minty in the taste. Minty toothpaste, lots of peppermint and sweet cocoa powder. Nice gliding and oily in the mouth it is, and it’s soft on the prickling carbonation. There is no coming around that it is quite out there on the sweet branch this, but it somehow keeps me interested all the way. Quite good! 14.02.2014

Nice dark color with a very roasted malt aroma. Smooth and silky finish. Enjoyed and will very much drink again.

Nitro at Brass Tap. It’s a nitro milk stout so it’s not as good as it should be because the silkiness is replaced by that blah nitro quality, but otherwise it’s a very solid chocolatey milk stout. Serve this on CO2 more, please.

Alengrin (2986) - BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2014
Sweet stout of double the average strength, with thinnish but stable, beige, dense head over a very dark chestnut coloured beer, hazy, almost black. Aroma strongly dominated by cured meat, beef broth and smoked bacon, bayleaf, raisins, dried plums, vanilla, baked banana, dried leaves, peat, soy sauce, fondant chocolate, caramel, nutmeg, cappuccino. Soft sweetish onset of candied and dried fruits, subtle sugar presence (candi sugar like, but I guess it’s the lactose speaking), hints of raisin, pear and some banana, very soft carbonation accomplishing a mellow, ’fatty’ mouthfeel, very subtle salty touch, supple maltiness, caramelly, nutty and a bit chocolatey, with a gentle roasted bitterness in the finish (still more than usual for a sweet stout though), leafy and slightly peppery hops and a background presence of gentle, warming alcohol, though it remains very well hidden, lending this beer a remarkable high drinkability in relation to its ABV. Far from the most complex stout I had, but well balanced, elegant and interesting.

Something about this strikes me as almost good but it is really not quite there. It has a nice dark color and a small head of fine bubbles. This is maybe just a little too roasty to the point where it comes off as harsh, acrid and ashy. This does have a bit of sweetness but would actually stil be drinkable with a nice creamy texture were it not for a pretty strong medicinal off-note. It does seem to have a nice dried fruit character to go along w/ the heavy handed roast though and it just seems like if the toned it down a notch and took care of the off flavors, this would be a very nice stout.
