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!

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. DOB 02/14/12.

Appearance: Slips out a black body with a medium-small, short-lived, ecru head. Near nil lacing.

Smell: Roasted malts with a chunky vein of burnt cream atop notes of chocolate chips, lesser caramel, and even lighter notes of lemon rind and black licorice.

Taste: Table sugar dosed quick-chilled coffee with round, sweet tastes of bittersweet chocolate and caramel. It’s got some sweetness, but definitely not over-the-top. There’s a firm roastiness underneath without being a hard, harsh roastiness, helping to curb the initial sweetness along with some underlying hop bitterness. Extremely subtle hints of citrus, florals. Then, a bit of licorice candy. Sweet roastiness on the finish that’s actually a bit crisp.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slightly smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: It’s not the creamiest, most smooth milk stout on the block, but it’s still fairly solid. I enjoyed it well enough.

Bacterial (1677) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2012
A solid stout all around. Dark brown with a light tan head. Nose is chocolate malt. Taste is a nice balance of malt and sweet with just a bit of hop to balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown with a thin ring of light tan lace. Nose is surprisingly dry for a ST stout. Some lactose sweetness, light hops. Flavor is slightly sweet, slightly bitter. Pretty nice balance. One of the better ST stouts I have had. AkA: not unbearably sweet.

Idiosynkrasie (4022) - 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.
