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!

yngwie (13575) - 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

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2012
This poured a dark brown, almost black body with a modest brown head that soon reduced to a film. The aroma was chocolatey with a quiet roastiness light floral scents. The roasted malts increased in the flavor and the chocolate became bittersweet. There was a roasty, hoppy bitterness that blended with a hit of alcohol. Dry finish. Not bad.

jebunn (22) - Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2012
Poors from the bottle dark with some brown head. Has a bitter aroma. Taste is soft coffee, smooth on the pallet, with a bitter finish. It’s a decent stout nothing too surprising.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with minimal brown head. Served at 53.6. Has that lactose aroma that ive come to associate milk stouts with. Head withers away before first sip. A powerful coffee like duck rabbit. Finishes quite bitter. Quite a solid stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of chrisv10. Pours a clear dark brown with an orange hue and a beige head. Sweet vanillaish roast in the nose. Rich body, sweet roast, some dark chocolate and a rather bitter finish from both hops and roast. I’m not REALLY a great fan of lactose sugars in my beer. 030412

jcnielsen (2108) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours a black with off white head. Aromas of lactose, coffee, and cocoa, Sweet, chocolate flavors. For a Double milk stout, it could pack a little more of a punch, but pretty good nonetheless.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle, nervously consumed while watching UNC barely make it into the Elite Eight. Pours nearly black with a tan head. Nose is complex milk sugars, with chocolate and coffee notes but also more complex lactic caramel and toffee. Similar taste. Sweet, but still complex. Dangerously drinkable, but that may have also had to do with my basketball watching and nerves.
