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!

A black beer with a small brown head. The aroma is mostly coffee with a little cocoa. The flavor is also coffee and cocoa with a nice milkiness and a bittersweet finish.

Idiosynkrasie (3796) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 13, 2012
355ml bottle. Opaque black with small, slightly lacing beige head. Roasted malt aroma, a nougat touch. Sweet dark malt taste, a cola-like overtone in the second half, decent dry roasty finish. Has a almost light character considering the abv.

Beyond (23) - Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours dark brown, tan head. Sweet. Chocolaty aroma with some coffee. A chocolate caramel start that works towards a hoppiness in the finish that confirms it as a true stout. Nice, I could drink this often.

Bottle. Pours black with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet lactose, oat, sweet roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and light hops. The flavour has some sweet roasted malty notes that mixed with hops, sugary caramel and chocolate. Rather sweet.

OmegaX (1255) - Florida, USA - APR 8, 2012
Draft at Oblivion. Nose is full of roasted coffee and chocolate. Very rich malt profile with some sweetness on the nose. Pour is dark, dark brown with a light tan head. Taste is sticky and sweet with roast and chocolate. Great stuff and easy to drink.

Chipalsa (1309) - Florida, USA - APR 6, 2012
I liked this stout, and for an imperial it was incredibly drinkable. The nose was full of coffee and cocoa with light bready notes. Roasted malts were abundant in the taste, but the finish was rich and dry chocolate with a clean bitter finish. We need to see more of these 2x beers!

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 5, 2012
Bottle. A dense, finger-thick beige head sits on top of a clear looking reddish dark, dark brown body. Lightly roasted, chocolatey aroma with a faint touch of coffee and some hops. Soft on the nose. The flavor is rather similar, with a hoppyness to support it. Well, I think it’s a bit unbalanced. Of course it needs hops and bitterness, but here it overpowers the stout-ish flavors. Soft and mellow on the palate, rather thin actually, quite unexpected for a beer at this strength. It’s a nice beer, but I have to say I’m a bit disappointed. But I still wouldn’t mind drinking it again. 120405
