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!

Delicious and smooth. First sip is reminiscent of a cup of coffee, and almost tastes as such. Roasty bitterness, but smooth with a hint of sweetness. Tasty, tasty, tasty,,,,,

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. It pours pitch black with a creamy, dark tan head. The nose has a good dose of flint, earth, and slight burnt notes. The flavor thankfully isn’t so dry. A bit of lactose sweetness up front, nice roasted malt notes, a little flint, milk chocolate, and very slight burnt notes on the back end. Well rounded with lots of flavor. Full bodied with low, creamy carbonation and a lasting bitter finish. Quite nice.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma features a lot of chocolate and a good bit of roasted malt. The flavor is very similar. The chocolate and nut notes really come through, as does some roasted malt. I also get some oats and lactose and cream notes in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On draft at the Brass Tap, poured a black color, aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, light lactose, and some light hops. Flavors are the same enjoyable at the bar, light sweetness to it, nice overall.
