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!

Great stout. Roasted malts and hops on the nose with a great roasty and sweet milky flavor.

BOSSbrewer (1991) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours an opaque brown with a creamy tan head that lingers. Aroma is chocolate some slight roast nd more chocolate. Flavor tastes like slightly roasty chocolate milk but thinner in body. Very sweet but not cloying. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. Pitch black with a ring of tan head; well hopped with a smooth lactic body; and a gently hopped finish. Not what I’d expect from a Milk Stout.

Southern Tier 2X Stout is a real treat. Bready aroma coming from a dark pour with a creamy tan head. Taste has notes of licorice, chocolate and coffee. Lactose qualities are not real apparent. Finish is real smooth. 2X Stout is another hit from the folks at ST.

Bottle. Pours a deep black color. Roasted malt aroma with a milky presence. Milky taste with some hops, chocolate, and roasted malt. A great balance between the three. A really good stout.

Long time wish list beer, and a bit of a letdown. Dated 11/13. Aroma is nice enough, big roasted notes, chocolate and lactose. Not a standout, though. Looks good. Feel and flavor are a little off...a bit of unwanted lactic tartness in there with a touch too much sweet and not enough stout. Not a bad beer, but with the other stouts these guys put out, i expected much better

trapped (905) - New York City, TURKEY - AUG 14, 2014
Drought. Inky black with creamy beige head, light coffee aroma, low carbonation, slightly bitter coffee taste, longish sweet finish. Very smooth but a bit thin in body.

Salmoniform (1006) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark brown hue with fizzy tan head that dissipated. Aroma is cola, coffee, roast, molasses, soy. Mouthfeel is easy with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is de throughout with an astringent following and slight ethanol finish. Overall this beer was bordering watery and had a slight metallic essence in the finish.
