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!

DocLock (7700) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours very deep onyx with half a finger of tan head. Nose is roasty chocolate malt, anise, molasses, cacao, lactosy malt, prune. Tastes medium to hefty on the palate, with a big initial hit of chocolate malt, black patent, and I can’t figure out the 3rd malt, maybe caramel, cacao, solid backup hops, definite lactose, and some semi-sweet finishing prune and blackberry flavors. This one is very good.

MrBeerFanatic (841) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Pours dark brown with a little carbonation and a little frothiness. Aromas of sweet roasted malts like caramel, chocolate, light wood, and light molasses. Pleasant flavors of sweet roasted malts, light brown sugar, light hidden floral hops, and caramel. Sweet, lightly thick on the palate (light 2% milk but with carbonation (weird to think about(milk with carbonation mmmm))), alcohol hidden, slight burnt malt aftertaste. My kind of stout.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Bottle pours deep brown with a tan head. Aroma shows chocolate, light to moderate roast, lactose, and some grassy/earthy hops. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of coffee and roasted nuts. Overall body is moderately sweet, lactic, and finishes with some roasted bitterness. Somewhat strange.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Brown/black with a dense camel colored head. Aroma is sweet spearmint tea with milk. Refreshing, but not quite what I’d expected. Taste is better... more of the same, and very unusual. Herbal Chinese pearl milk tea with a quick roasty edge, and then an odd sweetness into the finish. $2/12oz

rodisian (66) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 21, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2012 Appearance: Dark brown, almost black pour. Small but thick head that dissipates rather quickly Aroma: Roasty, Coffee notes. faint soy sauce Flavor: Lots of roastiness, black coffee, low bitterness at first but sticks around after the swallow and builds to a medium bitterness. some alcohol bite Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, quite tingly Overall: Probably my first brew from Southern Tier that I wouldn’t purchase again. For a double milk stout with lactose I was hoping for a sweeter, creamier beer

Southern Tier is a reliable brewery, and as decent as this brew is, it just doesn’t seem quite right in my mouth hole. It pours a beautiful toasty mocha brown. I got no head, even after i had the bottle about a foot off the glass for the last quarter of the pour. The nose is standard port. Toasty malt, mocha, caramel. Palate is a bit odd. It has a bit of an alcohol bite mixed with minimal bubbles. The toastyness comes out, but is followed by a big metallic,fishy, baconesque oddness that i didn’t care for. Maybe it’s just me... i don’t mind drinking it, but it’s not my favorite.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2012 I love Southern Tier brewery, but this isn’t my favorite brew of theirs. Pours an opaque black, with a small tan head. Not much aroma. Tastes of slight chocolate, roastiness, and a little malty. Chalky mouthfeel. Not too bad, but I’ve had better stouts.

TheBeerGod (5166) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle. Black pour with a short, dense tan head. Aroma is slightly smoky with dark chocolate, burnt coffee and faint sour milk. Taste is big chocolate notes, coffee, burnt caramel, roasted malt, light lactic tartness, soft smokiness and faint dark fruit notes. Body is medium and slightly chewy with dense, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, soft smoke and light lactic tartness.

TheGB (499) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Pours black with a dense 1/2" head. Lightish aroma of cream, chocolate malt and a little hops. Medium to full bodied with a smooth, creamy chocolate palate. Tasty.

Draft at the Little Pub at Hamilton College. Pours a dark cola brown pour with a fair sized and dense creamy head- good looking beer! The nose holds rich milk chocolate, touches of coffee, half and half, a hint of earth, and roasted malt, though the sweetness is certainly predominant over the bitterness. The flavor is more intensely sweet, with big creamy chocolate dominating the palate. Not complex, but well done, and very tasty.
