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!

brokensail (9948) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Almost black in color with a finger of off-white head. The nose is heavy on the roasted malt and chocolate with a nice touch of lactose, too. Maybe even a touch of vanilla? A fairly sweet nose, but quite nice. The flavor is not as nice. A little too much roast which comes across as harsh on the palate. Good coffee flavors and a moderate lactose sweetness, though.

574deadzone (891) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Pours a deep brown/black, slight ruby edges, with a very thin khaki head. Nose is milk chocolate and lightly roasted grain and almost a touch of banana in there. Taste is really sweet, with a light roasted bitterness. Palate is on the light side of medium, smooth, but prickly from substantial carbonation. Not bad, but I think I want more body and balance, and definitely less carbonation.

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. YUM!

jbruner (1998) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours a nice dark brown/black with small, dissipating tan head. Smell is faintly of coffee and the sweetness from the lactose. Taste is heavy on the coffee and dark chocolate, with a sweet lingering aftertaste. Nice beer overall, but lacking just a bit, like most of the Southern Tier brews.

Japalo (1047) - DENMARK - APR 28, 2012
Bottle. Black no head. Faint malty aromas. Soft gentle dryness withellerell hidden sweetness. Fair carbonation. Fair brew not so exciting.

pet3rman (310) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2012
Pours dark and oily. Head non existent. Faint aroma. Alcohol and carbonation of the bat gives way to a decent stout flavor, but lacks the smooth mouthfeel that a sweet stout should deliver.

drowland (5961) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 26, 2012
4/26/12. On tap. Black pour with a nice tan head. Nice roast with sweetness and plenty of milk chocolate on the aroma. Nice milk chocolate flavor with light roast and a touch of lactose sweetness. This is tasty...

TheJester (1728) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
355 mL bottle. Looks the part, although the beige head is a little thin. Cappucino stands out in the nose, but there is a real sharpness that stands out above everything. Underneath is some booze and a little chocolate milk. Flavour is smooth and creamy, with chocolate milk and a little roast. Not big or complex, but very drinkable. Nice stout.

rbrazell (1458) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2012
Black pour with a fingers worth of a creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, milk chocolate and very faint hop bitterness. Sweet milk chocolate dominates the flavor with the lightest bit of bitterness in the end. Displays much more of a creamy and viscous body than milk stouts I’ve had. Enjoying this one.

Aniela (2302) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2012
From a 33 cl bottle at home in Skövde. Black beer with a small beige head. Sweet, coffee aroma with some chocolate notes. Malty and chocolate flavour.
