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!

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.

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.

Koelschtrinker (12439) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 31, 2012
Süßer, fast etwas künstlicher Beginn von Schokoladenmalznoten. Dabei dumpf herbe Noten, süß bleibend, zunehmend bitterer, was aber im Hintergrund bleibt. Davor finden sich die konstanten Röstnoten, die nussigen und auch leicht bananigen Noten. Intensiv, sehr nussig werdend, gut! 10/13/12/10/10/11

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,,,,,

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.
