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!

Gachupines (994) - USA - MAR 4, 2012
Black with a brown head. Aroma is some slight coffee. Flavor is very sweet and creamy with a decent roasted coffee bitterness in the finish. Overall, solid stout, almost like an after dinner dessert.

Medium roast coffee with cream aroma, a little unmalted barley. Dark mahogany, thin tan head. Rich sweet coffee flavor. Medium body. Darker roast character on the palate than the nose, with a malt bitterness. Simple but well made.

Bottle pours near black with nice tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted grains and mocha. Favors includes toasted malts, wood, coffee, baker’s chocolate, and molasses. Very smooth with very nice dry hop finish that lingers.

Westmeister (1954) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours thick black with tan head. Smells of chocolate, lactose, roasted malts, sugar and a bit of tin. Taste had the typical ST sweetness with lactose, dark roasted malt, no booze, caramel. Quite nice and for a "sweet" stout I like the amp up which seems natural for ST.

355mL thanks to DedicatedToFun. Pours deep, clear marron with with thick, dense, almost nitro looking dark coffee head. Excellent sheety, nitro like lace. Nose is slightly poopy, lactose, milk chocolate, sweetened espresso. Taste is tangy, metallic up front, a little rust character, lactic. Thicker Irish dry stout character with milk stout blend. Ends sweet with some iron metallic. Thicker, lactic palate. Big mocha character. Better than expected.

Bottle pour to snifter....coffee and milk chocolate essence fills glass with faint dusty earthen hops note. Taste akin to oreos dipped in ovaltine with underlying alcohol kept at bay by lactic carbonate body. Goes down very nice, with just the right amount of heat n sweet.

From my first time tasting this beer: Pours extremely dark and thick (light doesn’t pass) with low carbonation. Has a small tan head that quickly dissipates. Smells of barley malt, alcohol and hops, no sweetness on the nose just beer. Quite good, thick and malty with a good hop presence as well. The sweetness of the milk stout seems to mix with the alcohol and they kind of mask each other making it just taste like a regular stout. The descent hop presence hits you before it finishes with a a strong bitter coffee chocolate malt taste. This is a good average stout, being that the 2xipa and Left hand milk stout are two of my favorites, I thought I’d like this more. Not blown away but very good.
