COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

At a great tasting in Vranovo-Serbia, with markoijelena and cika Boban. Bottle sent by Costantin of the Hoppy imp. Greece. Thank you mate. Pours black with practically a no-head, just an ivory lacing. Nose: milk chocolate, macchiato. Mouth: watery, licorice, easy drinking. Just OK.

eManu (476) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2015
from a 33cl btl. Pours a deep black body with a dark beige head that almost directly disappeared, leaving a small ring around. Aroma is of nice coffee and chocolate. Taste, at first it gives nice flavors of coffee, milk chocolates, herbs, resin, but the finish is a bit watery. Slightly sweet, not bitter, not sour, light creamy and yet slightly dry finih. A but of a lack of finish. This stout is nice, but its not a WOW stout.

arminjewell (7902) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap, dark black pour with creamy tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa powder, touch of earth into lots of nice coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla like notes with some lactose, touch of caramel. Taste was a mix of sweet cocoa, coffee, espresso beans into some lactose, vanilla, some caramel into a bit of roast, finishing slightly sweet, slightly dry.

zacgillbanks (2888) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. An inky black beer that pours with a thin bright tan head. It has a rich sweet milk chocolate flavour, roasted coffee notes and gentle sweetness and liquorice on the finish. Superb!

Great aroma of sweet malts, roasted grains and coffee. Smooth and silky, I was surprised to find this brew was only 4.2% ABV as it tastes much richer and thicker. Overall just a great beer. Highly recommended!

flying_pig (1070) - SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2015
355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.20):
This one is an easy drinking sweet stout from Stone that had a good balance and went down easy enough but ultimately failed to excite, it was quite an average beer for me really and not one Iíd be likely to go back to again. While it definitely wasnít a bad one from the brewery, it never really hit the heights of Youngís Double Chocolate Stout or even Left Handís Milk Stout but it was nice enough I guess.

Thin black with a thick foam of tan head. Nice roasted coffee aroma and flavour, sweet and bitter and super easy to drink, like a session stout.

Love this! Pours. Black with some tan head and lots of lacing. Nose is some sweet chocolate and some coffee. Flavours are sweet chocolate, some coffee, some light tart. Taste med sweet light/med bitter. Lightish body, somewhat creamy with lively csrbonation. Really nice beer you could drink all day.
