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!

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a very dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing bubbly tan head. Aroma is kind of sweet with lightly roasted malt, dark fruit and chocolate first followed by lactic notes and light leafy hops. Malty, chocolatey flavour along with lactic notes, some sugar and light leafy hops -- not as big a flavour as I’d expected. Average to medium bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel. I didn’t love it, it’s a little sweet for me and "mild" but it’s still quite enjoyable. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2012 On tap sampler at Judge’s Bench in Ellicott City, MD. Opaque, near black with buff head and very good lacing. Aroma of roast coffee, sweet chocolate and molasses. Taste of roast coffee, chocolate sweet caramel and floral hops. Medium/full body and light carbonation with velvety mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Bottle:   Black, moderate frothy tannish head, nice lacing.   Sweet cream heavy like roastiness on the nose.   A bit more roastiness on the tongue, mild hop bite, sweetened coffee that is heavy on the creamer.   A bit more bitterness on the backside, and roasted character.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as sweet or milky as others, but instead a bit more on the hop side.   Not out of balance at all, just a little more hoppy than I expected.   Body and mouthfeel are average, or moderate.   Somewhat of a cold coffee finish, lots of creamer involved, and some lingering hoppy notes.   Not bad, but not as creamy smooth or milky sweet as others.   More hop sided than most, which is fine.   Enjoyable for sure, and clean!

sm89walt (1751) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig 2012. Poured a deep, opaque brown/black with a thin tan head. Big, fruity raisin & prune character with some booze, sweet choccy malts and a delicate dry roasted malt backbone. Medium body, a smooth mouthfeel beneath medium carbonation and a decent finish. A good stout with good bittersweet balance.

after4ever (6088) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 5, 2012
12-oz. Pours jet black with no head, lace, or legs. Big roasty, ashy nose, along with some bittersweet baking chocolate. Creamy medium body with flabby carb. Roasty, ashy, chocolatey mid palate that tastes good enough to make up for the flaws. Not a great beer but maybe a repeater in a pinch.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ. Pours pitch black and completely opaque with a half finger light beige head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring.  Sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Roasted malt aroma that smells slightly burnt.  I was expecting it to be sweeter smelling but its almost acrid. Lots of dark chocolate along with some roasted coffee. Some lactic cream and sweeter chcolate but the robust roastiness overpowers things. Tastes very similar to the aroma.  Thinner than expected with lots of overly roasted burnt malt flavor.  Overpowering dark chocolate along with burnt coffee and smoke with hardly any sweetness for balance.  Very faint lactic cream presence with a touch of  lighter, sweeter chcolate but again the overly roasted dark chocolate notes overpower everything.  Lingering dry acrid finish.  Pretty disappointing coming from a brewery that usually nails dessert beers.
