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!

Very mild for what they claim is a hard core stout with lots of flavor. It’s not bad by any means, just average really. Has the usual chocolate, malt and coffee that is prevalent in most stouts, but nothing really pops in either the aroma or taste. I don’t have much experience with milk stouts, but I think I prefer oatmeal stouts based on my recent tastings.

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

rondphoto (2778) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 18, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black/brown color, rocky, bubbly two-finger tan head, thick cobwebs of lace. Taste is strong caramel malt that has so much sweet toffee, that no other tastes have a chance. There is finally some bittering at the end, but it isn’t enough to balance. A big, noticeably alcoholic brew, but enjoyable in small amounts.

355ml bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aromas of lactose milkiness, creamy toffee, fudge, some liquorice. Taste is toffee, light milky coffee, some cardboard. Sweet, but a bit thin finish.

AshtonMcCobb (3764) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - close to opaque black with a nice crema head. Nose - initial dairy thing, then light cardboard note, then toffee follows it in. Taste - initially slight oxidised cardboard again, then liquorice, nuts, praline generally. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry and fairly balanced finish. Overall - this needs to be re-rated as the bottle was a little past its BBD.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle: Oily black body with a light-tan head that doesn’t last for long. Aroma of molasses, sweet brown sugar, faint coffee, creamy milk chocolate, toasty caramel. Flavor is sweet.. VERY sweet. Loads of sweet chocolate, milky lactose sweetness, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, even some hints of vanilla & toasted nuts. Loads of residual sugar coat your teeth instantly. Too much sweetness to drink a full glass. Not bad but goddamn.
