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!

libertine (301) - 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.

demmbonz (698) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Weak aroma with a soapy looking head. Not very sweet. Not very anything...except 7.5%. Decent brew. Will not be memorable.

HighlanderOne (1101) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2012
UPDATED: APR 27, 2014 Poured from bottle. Aroma of coffee and caramel. Stout black, tan head with lacing. Flavors of coffee ice cream, caramel, licorice, vanilla, a hint of cocoa and clove. Slight alcohol in back gives this a warm feel. Excellent drinkability. More dry than sweet. Good finish. Another winner from ST.

elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Pours a just barely translucent dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is predominately sweet, with a malty, sugary profile, with just a hint of bitterness. Alcohol is very noticeable. Mouthfeel is well above average for a beer of this style, with a velvety palate. In sum: One of the best milk stouts I’ve tried, comparable to those made by Left Hand and Duck Rabbit. However, the Southern Tier pedigree is there--tasting this, you can see the links to Chocolat, Jah-va, and Creme Brulee Stouts. Think of this as an "imperial milk stout."

Defreni (2866) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2012
Flaske: Brunsort øl med et lille skumhoved. Duften er sødlig maltet. Smagen er derimod kompleks med en smule røg og bacon ovenpå en meget sød sweet stout. Dejlig øl egentlig. Med masser af southern tier sødme.
