We bring to you an black thick milk stout called By Udder Means. We wanted to do a stout, that had a thick mouth feel and still a low alcohol percentage. We obtained this by adding a solid amount of lactose in the beer. The yeast strain we used is not capable of fermenting lactose, so when the beer stops fermenting all lactose still remains in the beer. At the same time lactose doesnt leave this sweet touch to the beer, so you can obtain a thick mouth feel without having an overly sweet or overly strong stout. We hope you enjoy.

Bottle @ csakajosor darker brown head. Nose of cocoa and earth, but mostly cocoa. Tases like my mothers cafe latte. The milk (lactose) is distinct but very nice.

Saeglopur (1172) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 24, 2015
330 ml bottle from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Black body, with a big, dense, creamy, lacing, dark beige head.
Aroma of coffee, lactose, dark chocolate, cocoa, some ash, some liquorice, slight hops.
Tastes of coffee, lactose, cocoa, bitter chocolate, liquorice, some ash, citric hops from the background.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes smooth, roasty-bitter, dry, with coffee, wood, liquorice, slight ash, long-lasting citric hop notes.

Really tasty. Quite opposing aromas, with roast, lactose, some ash and surprising amounts of hops, but very well balanced, so that it all fits together and drinks really smooth. The lactose and the hops lead to a fresh impression, the ABV isnt noticable at all. Among the best Milk Stouts Ive had so far.

Ladna, bezowa piana. Aromat mocno palony, wrecz risowy, ale lamany przez owoce (winogrona). Jest tez odczuwalna popiolowosc. Nieco za wysoko wysycone. Palony aftertaste. Laktoza prawie nieodczuwalna.

Bottle from Blackrock cellar. Pours black with reddish hues. Lactose, coffee, floral, chocolate nose. Flavour is liquorice, lactose, milk chocolate with a dry sweet tobacco coffee finish. Not a style Im crazy about but nice example.

leghorn99 (143) - Livorno, ITALY - AUG 8, 2015
Semplicemente nera; schiuma abbondante, cremosa, soffice, di ottima persistenza. Al naso dominano caff espresso e cioccolato, accompagnati la leggere punte floreali; si avvertono anche note di cereali e pane appena sfornato. Questo mix, rende tutto rotondo e finemente decorato da ciliegie nere. Il palato morbido, pieno e cremoso in perfetta armonia con il naso. Caff e ciliegia dominano con note di cenere e carbone. Linsieme morbido e dolce, ma vira abbastanza velocemente verso lamaro del caff. La carbonazione bassa, nel retrogusto si avvertono note di anacardi e nocciole; un tocco di Gin e Sambuco. Il finale rimane un p pi amaro rispetto allattacco, virando su note di caff e liquirizia.

7%ABV. Sweet Stout. Poured out of the bottle a beautiful glossy black brown. 40SRM. Nose is clean , grassy and clear sugar sweet. Nice malty flavors. The added lactose was a stroke of genius. Few other stouts have as inviting a nose. Pronounced carbonation. Umami. Short hoppy finish. Clean finish. Deep dark roasted flavors. Sweet malts. Burnt milk pudding. Alcohol is very well balanced. Beware the sneaky kick in the pants. Also if you do get kicked in the pants, itll never be sweeter than by the fine folks at To l. Goes on favorites list.

Lodgewick (52) - Finland, Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle at home. Almoust black with thick beige head leaving nice laces. Aroma is mediocre roasted with coffee, cocoa and dark chocolate. Some alcohol in backround. Very nice. Taste is milk chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and strong chocolate bitterness. Palate is over medium. Aroma is the best part. Very enjoyable anyways.
