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!

Opaque brown. Roasted almonds on the nose. Full bodied with an intense roasted mid palate. No sweetness to speak of. Drinks more like an English dry stout.

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2012
when i left the store with this beer i was sort of wondering why i was doing such things, because i hate sweet stouts. but i love southern tier and it was a small bottle. it pours much lighter than i imagined and not nearly as viscous. dark brown to black color nose of caramel oreos, cookie, biscut, almond, biscotti. taste is sooty, with a nutty sweetness that sneaks in the end there. this is my dessert and its not nearly as sweet and gross as i thought it would be. still, probably wouldnt buy it again unless i was doing a pairing thing or making a chocolate stout cake.

Tap. Creamy tan head on a nearly black body. Lots of malted milk balls, chocolate, light roast, sweetness, and chocolate. Loads of milk lacto sweetness, chocolate, lightly toasty and some roast. Medium body with vibrant carbonation. Not bad.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUN 12, 2012
bottle from beckley’s with born on date of 2/6/12 consumed 6/12/12. dark and pretty much opaque with a tan head. aroma is a lot like whoppers...malty, choco, milk, bitterness, some hazelnut-like nuttiness and a touch of coffee. flavor is much the same... sweetish but bitter coffee-ish finish helps clean it up. it gets to tasting a little ilke peanut butter cups as it warms...with a coffee back... creamy when sloshed around but it remains quite easy to drink. 7/4/7/4/15

libertine (223) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2012
pours black with almost no head.aroma is straight forward roasted coffee and chocolate.flavor is coffee and chocolate and is not as sweet as i thought is was going to be.maybe the bitterness tends to hide the sugars a bit.flavor reminds me of when you chew on a roasted coffee bean,it leaves that same bitterness on your tongue.low to medium carbonation with a medium body and a slick mouthfeel.very long bitter finish.cant say im dissapointed and cant say im impressed.its enjoyable but from southern tier i believe someone would expect more.the bitterness outweighs the sweetness and the flavors are not very complex.

Incredibly smooth and easy to drink stout. Smooth roasted flavors, nuts, toasted bread, caramel and of course creamy milk. Light bitterness for balance.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Nice pour, crisply carbonated but with the expected and anticipated heft to it. Nose was a bit reticent, with dusty baker’s chocolate and just hints of what might be beyond. Full mouthfeel, nice and smooth, but overall not as chocolatey as I’d anticipated (especially given this particular brewer) and also not especially lactic. Instead, a bitter and roasty stout with a solid chocolatey foundation. Good but wanted something a bit different.

Pours very dark brown color with tan head. Roasted malt and milk chocolate aromas. Bittersweet chocolate flavor with burnt malts and hints of coffee. Medium to full body with soft carbonation.
