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!

12 oz. bottle via trade with DrSilverworm - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Faint tiny spotted lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and light coffee. Flavor is sweet lightly roasted malt and light herbal hops. Finish is fairly smooth and sweet. Medium body. A very nice beer. Thanks Chris.

chanokokoro (138) - Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2012
12 oz. bottle poured into a Southern Tier Brewing Company branded "imperial glass" (stemmed tulip), Pours a dark brown capped with a beige one and a half finger head. Average retention and noticeable splotchy lacing here and there. Pleasant roasted notes greet the nose, sweet bittersweet cocoa power as well. Opens with roasted malt some dark chocolate that transisitons to milk chocolate as the sweet lactose sugar joins in creating a semi-sweet chocolate milk notes. Finishes with mild roasted malts and some lingering cocoa. Medium bodied, smooth, some creaminess-moderate carbonation. One of the better readily available milk stouts available, very well-balanced, never overly sweet. Recommended.

realaledrinker (35) - Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Poured dark with a small and quickly disappearing head. Malty characteristics were more than one might expect. It is smooth and full on the palate but the sweetness hid most of the roasted character that was present in the aroma. Overall a pretty good beer but far from my favorite.

Itzjerm (1677) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2012
This is definilty a bitter milk stout. Stouts are usually a bit more smooth on the palate. Bitter doesnt mean sour... just bitter. Not bad. not great either. I can’t say I wouldn’t skip it again but not top of my list.

solidfunk (5256) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Smells very smoky. Lots of dark, roasted malt as well. Pours pretty black. Aroma of nuts, coffee and a little lactose in there. Some booze as well. Medium carbonation. Taste is sweet and bitter - a good balance between them both. Really enjoyed this one. Bottle from Village Beer Merchant.

jgb9348 (5092) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, raisins, pit fruits, caramel, toffee and a hint of milk. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong lactic flavours at first with oatmeal, a bit of nuts and a ton of roasted malt and bitter cofffee notes with a little caramelised sugar sweetness on the back end. Aftertaste is a bit complex with the good sour lactic notes at first followed by a pleasant sweetness and a good deep bitter flavour with not much alcohol notes and a solid body. Overall, a nice beer - definitely one to sample as the days get shorter and the nights get chillier. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-April-2012 for US$1.65 sampled at home in Washington on 01-December-2012.
