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!

Cybercat (5169) - Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Comes out of the bottle dark-chocolate brown with a fairly thick and rather persistent frothy, fine-bubbled wheaten head that leaves fairly thick lacing. Aroma has a core of roast, slightly burnt malt with notes of molasses, licorice and coffee. Lip-smacking flavor has notes of roast malt, mocha and molasses, with nutty and earthy hints. Smooth, firm texture has a decent amount of fizz and leaves a nice smoky, slightly sweet finish.

Bonus courtesy of markwise. 12oz bottle pours dark brown with tan head of foam. The aroma has some nice chocolate and then it heads toward earthy malts and an echo of dark roasted malts. The taste is similar with some sweet malts riding into a bit of chocolate and earthiness. In between those notes are slivers of dark roasted malts. Overall the sweetness takes the lead in the flavor profile ahead of the various dark roasted notes.

The doubled strength comes across mostly as the added taste of booze (just how much darker can beer get, anyway?) and relegates the milkiness to an afterthouht. A good stout for sure, but others are both better and easier to find. I do appreciate the relative prominence of the hops that usually are subtle at best in dark beers.

Very mild for what they claim is a hard core stout with lots of flavor. It’s not bad by any means, just average really. Has the usual chocolate, malt and coffee that is prevalent in most stouts, but nothing really pops in either the aroma or taste. I don’t have much experience with milk stouts, but I think I prefer oatmeal stouts based on my recent tastings.

Black color with no head. Aroma of fresh cut grass. Bitter pine flavor. Quite astringent and bitter. Is this a mis-labeled Black IPA?

Murrow (93) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Bottled 3/14/12. Pours deep brown to black with beige head. Light, sharp aroma of dark chocolate and fruit. Mellow toffee and caramel up front, developing into a nice mix of hop and malt bitterness. Warm alcohol finish. Rich mouthfeel, medium to full-bodied. Very easy-drinking, pleasant milk stout.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a small mocha colored head. A thin ring of lace resides as the head dissipated. Brownies, vanilla, bitter dark chocolate, and hint of alcohol are all in the aroma. Smells fantastic! This brew is packed with flavor too. Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and a slight hop note come to mind. Really easy to drink at 7.5% and decently priced.

Frothmeister (733) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a nut brown coloured head. Aroma is boozy with faint dried fruit, lots of cocoa, vanilla, and light smoke. The taste is sweet, with alcohol, light smoke, again, lots of cocoa, espresso, and bitter citrus in the finish. Not too full bodied, and dangerously easy drinking for 7.5%. Full on tasty.

(bottle). Dark brown with tan head and little lacing. Dark roasted malts stand out among semisweet stout. Smooth palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bUAkronG (15) - Akron, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Had on tap at Lockview in Akron, OH on 03/06/12. Appearance: jet black in color with 2 finger light tab head. Moderate lacing. Smell: roasted malts, alcohol, and hints of vanilla. Taste: vanilla tones, slight alcoholic taste. Roasted malts. Mouthfeel: not much retainment. Not very much kick for what is listed as 8.0% ABV by the restaurant. Overall: easy to drink. I could see myself drinking a couple of these in an evening.
