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!

On Tap (and on Nitro) at the River Room, Whole Foods,Boise Lovely light tan Nitro head . Dark roasty aromas and flavors. Easy on the lactose sweetness but it does soften the edge. Very tasty.

ljthiessen (729) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate and roasty malt. Flavour is chocolate and roasty malt, some subtle dark fruit. Not as heavy as expected for the ABV, but still flavourful and pretty well balanced for a sweet stout. Tasty.

PhillyBeer2112 (2641) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Quite enjoyable. Nice dark reddish brown color that s almost opaque. Deep dark chocolate nose, a bit of a chocolate cream and a teeny hint of coffee. Semi-sweet chocolately finish, creamy palate.

andrewje41 (1355) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2015
12 oz bottle poured. Pours a cola black color with a quick fading head. Malty, sweet chocolate aroma. Flavor is a ton of sweet chocolate flavor, with a nice roasted flavor to it. Definitely a sweet, milk chocolate. I am one of those that believe dark chocolate clearly dominates milk, so this one lacked the bold flavor that I enjoy in a lot of chocolate stouts, but overall this was a good beer.

Black in color with thin , beige head. Aroma of coffee , roasted malt , hint of hop. Balanced taste , where malty sweetness is inter-twisted with roasted and coffee bitterness. Good and surprisingly for it's ABV easy going stout .

Sweet and tasty. This is a nice stout that is surprisingly mild for a double. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
