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!

annunz123 (873) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Malt, bread, chocolate, roast, and coffee in the aroma. Flavor is sweet but not overwhelmingly so. Coffee/cocoa bitterness and a little vanilla in the finish. Really smooth, and really good.

bwa5879 (697) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Pitch black pour with dark brown head a half inch thick. Smells of chocolate and root beer. Thick medium carbonated mouth feel. Lactose and chocolate flavor, just a hint of malt. Leaves a great slightly bitter, mostly sweet finish with more lactose.

unclemattie (4248) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2012
12oz bottle. Poured in a Southern Tier snifter glass. Black pour, light tan head. Aroma of cold coffee, chalky malts. Tastes of a strong Milk Stout. Nice lactose character with loads of roast, licorice, hidden chocolate, and more bitter roast. It is a hearty beer for sure. Perfect for the summer months! Finishes dry and enjoyable. (3349)

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark cola with a medium small to medium sized tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, cocoa powder and chocolate milk notes. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

GBZ59 (1181) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAY 20, 2012
Botella de 355ml. Vaso de ½ Pinta. Saboreada en abr´12. Brota con color marrón muy oscuro y coronada por una amplia capa de espuma cremosa. Persistente con bonitos anillos y collares. Aromas de maltas tostada y sutil levadura de pan con un toque de chocolate. Agradables maltas tostadas y bajo amargor al primer sorbo seguido de un envolvente dulzor. La lactosa crea una placentera sensación en el paladar. La asimilación resulta plena de sabor sin la pesadez empalagosa que desafortunadamente se asocia con muchas representantes del Estilo Milk Stout. ¡ Por supuesto que he tomado más de una! 355ml bottle. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed on apr´12. Pours very dark brown in color crowned by a creamy, thick layer, foamy head. Lasting froth with nice rings & collars. Toasted malt & subtle bready yeast with a chocolate touch aromas. Gentle toasted malts & low bitterness at first sip followed by an involving sweet sensation. Lactose sugar creates a pleasant sensation on to the palate. Drinkability results flavorful without fat or cloying mouthfeel unfortunately associated to many spots of the Milk Stout Style. Perfectly covered ABV. Of course I´d have more than one!

Pours a deep black with tan head. Nose and taste are sweet, milky, and chocolaty. The booze is well hidden and the beer is very nicely balanced- not to much chocolate, not to much stout. It was just what I needed to end a busy day last night.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2012
12oz bottle poured into glass. Dark brown color with a thin beige head. Holy chocolate!! There’s no escaping it here. Lots of chocolate both in the aroma and flavor. Sweet malt in the flavor mixed with sugar milk lactose. Very much an after dinner drink.

Darwenus (562) - Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Pours dark with metallic red highlights. Smells rich and tastes richer. Slight coffee tones, malt, mild hops and chocolate. Sweet, but not so sweet that I was sick of it before I finished the glass. There are a number of things I’d buy again before I’d buy this, but I wouldn’t object if you were to offer me one.
