Though Stone Brewing Co. is well known for massive stouts such as the venerable Stone Imperial Russian Stout (10.6% abv) and the more recent collaborative w00tstouts (13%-13.5% abv), at a mere 4.2% abv Stone Coffee Milk Stout presents a walk on the significantly milder, far opposite side of the stout spectrum. Rather than being as bombastic as itís MUCH higher alcohol cousins, this beer is even on the palate, bringing on a hint of coffee with a highly drinkable yet quite modest backdrop of chocolate and roasty notes. At a mere 4.2% ABV, itís the lowest-alcohol bottled beer weíve released in 15 years (the previous being our 3.9% abv one-off release called Leeís Mild in 2009), and you can expect a correspondingly modest body and mouthfeel. Additionally, while some milk stouts have more residual lactose sugar, we opted for a less sweet approach to the category, so youíll notice it finishes fairly dry on the palate. Want more body or a more intense flavor profile? We got that, but this ainít it. This is the lilí one in our stable. Enjoy it for what it is and for what itís not.

cask. Dark black-brown colour with tan head. Chocolate malts feature prominently, along with roasted and coffee flavours. Definitely on the less sweet side for a milk stout. Pretty good.

Cajun (414) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - OCT 17, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2016 Bottle - Pours black, off-white head - this one was thin. Pleasant aroma of dark malt and coffee grounds. Flavors of coffee, dark roasted sweet bread, chocolate, nuts, good bitter hops, and a dry finish. Decent.

Stone Coffee Milk Stout is a good quality stout. Pours black with a moderate tan head. Some chocolate and malt aroma. Taste is low on the lactose and coffee notes but blends well to make a really good stout. Coffee Milk might disappoint some but it was tasty to this stout fan.

355 ml bottle.
Pours black color with a reddish tint and a small beige head. Roasted malts and coffee on the nose, subtle hops, cocoa, faint licorice, maybe some rye on the background. Roasty, bitter, dry malty flavor, coffee, chocolate, subtle spice notes, grain. Very flavorful and tasty Sweet Stout.

demannu (378) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Overall timid for a Stone brew. Aroma is of coffee and cream. Taste is toned down sweetened coffee with some milk. Palate is not very creamy and fairly dry for the style.

Bottle. Interesting little beer. Of course all the visuals are as expected, but donít expect a long lasting head. The aroma hints at the java, but the beer drinks with a sweeter edge. (#6343, 10/1/2016)

Black is black, brown creamy head, lots of lacing. Looks great. Black and green olives, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, dry and roasted dark tones mostly. Have a mild cold so propably missing some nuances here but what I do smell I also like, pure aromas. Medium to full body, dry and roasted, medium bitter, standard carbonation, lots of chocolate here lasting to quite long finish, tobacco also. Good stuff, nice balance and feel.

Draught at Taphouse. Low fluffy white quickly disappearing. Pitch black body. Powerful roasted malt coffee cocoa aroma. Roasted malt coffee caramel flavor with a nice and smooth cocoa note as well. Litte hops bitterness. Low carbonation and a long sweet finish.
