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!

Close to black body with a tiny light brown head. Strong burnt aroma of dark berries, coffee, tar, dark chocolate. The taste is medium sweet and medium to light bitter. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Lovely!

Thechasm442 (364) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle to a pint glass. Pours a midnight brown with a small tab head that quickly becomes nothing. Aroma is chocolate, mild coffee, and a faint sweetness. Taste exceeds aroma. Cream and coffee, mild cocoa, and a nig of roasty malt. Thin mouthfeel, somewhat creamy, and kind of high on the carbonation. Not bad.

What a great beer. Virtually everything that I have had from Southern Tier has been excellent. The 2X Stout is no different. Deep and dark, with a chocolate/coffee smooth finish

Burnt malt and coffee aroma. Fairly thick with note of chocolate, coffee, and a little dried fruit. Well balanced, well made, heavy brew. Yum

Bif (1581) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle- Pours a black color with a small tan head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, with chocolate and coffee to round it out. Taste follows the aroma with roasted malt, chocolate and coffee and some caramel sweetness. Mild bitterness in the background with a dry finish. Full body, smooth, thick and creamy. No real hint of the 7.5% ABV. very nice balanced. Goes down easy. Good beer without being overpowering.

From notes: Poured opaque ink-black with a 2-finger dark tan/mocha-colored head. Roasty aroma mixed with dairy cream. Nice, full body with a slight creaminess. Flavor is roasty and chocolatey, with a note of dairy cream in the finish. Very pleasantly surprised by this.

ttutony (729) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Deep brown in the glass with minimal head. Roasted malt aroma, maybe a hint of a coffee note. Rich mouthfeel, slight sweetness, but still maintains a pleasant roasted malt bitterness as well. Lengthy roasted malty finish.
