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!

Poured watery black with a fizzy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and some caramel. Coffee and chocolate up front. Medium to Light bodied. Solid offering.

Aroma is roasty. Hint of sweetness. Hop oil in there. Pours a dark brown. Tan head with little retention. Taste is hoppy. Dull hops. A hint of sweetness that gives a good compliment. Roastiness is good. Mouth is medium light. Decently smooth. Hops linger on the finish. Overall an interesting beer. The backbone is strong against the lactose but the hops overpower. Solid beer.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 7.5%. It’s also lists the malts and hops used. Appearance: The body has a very dark brownish black color which blocks out all light. It is topped off with a nice light tan head of foam. This foam hangs on well and makes good lacing on the glass. Smell: As I popped the top on this one I immediately picked up on the sweet maltiness of the beer. In the glass it is fairly light overall and I get notes of toasted bread, molasses and dark caramel with just the slightest touch of dark roasted coffee in the background. Taste / Palate: It starts off with a quick flash of sweet maltiness and caramel like notes then it quickly adds a heavy dose of dark almost burnt toast and dark roasted coffee bitterness. The hops support this bitterness in the finish. The palate feels smooth, creamy and full but definitely not overly so. I have had thicker milk stouts, some to the point of being cloying sweet and hard to drink. ST 2x Stout stays quite drinkable and enjoyable.

12 oz. bottle. It pours a very dark brown/black color with a khaki/tan head. The aroma is pretty subdued with some dark cocoa, black bread and some mild lactose sweetness. The flavor is bready and chocolaty with a smooth, creamy body and a nice mild sweetness that is off set by a rich, bitter dark chocolate finish. Pretty decadent and very delicious.

Bottle from BOTW. Nice nose: chocolate, brown sugar, cream, coffee, nice roast. Some soy as well. Black with pretty tan head. Nicely sweet but not cloying, vanilla and cream, chocolate, umami, light berries, cafe au lait. Full body. Good.

BOSSbrewer (1631) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours an opaque brown with a creamy tan head that lingers. Aroma is chocolate some slight roast nd more chocolate. Flavor tastes like slightly roasty chocolate milk but thinner in body. Very sweet but not cloying. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. Pitch black with a ring of tan head; well hopped with a smooth lactic body; and a gently hopped finish. Not what I’d expect from a Milk Stout.

Southern Tier 2X Stout is a real treat. Bready aroma coming from a dark pour with a creamy tan head. Taste has notes of licorice, chocolate and coffee. Lactose qualities are not real apparent. Finish is real smooth. 2X Stout is another hit from the folks at ST.

Bottle. Pours a deep black color. Roasted malt aroma with a milky presence. Milky taste with some hops, chocolate, and roasted malt. A great balance between the three. A really good stout.
