COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 doesn’t 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.

RasmusOtt (1257) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2014
Tap at beertemple. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of nice roasted malts, roasted coffee, lacto milky sweet chocolate, some hops, cocoa, vanilla and an earthy/spicy feel to it. Smells really good! Taste of nice roasted coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, milkyness, cocoa and some hops. Dry mouthfeel and an impressive body for a "7%". This beer amazed me! So we'll done!

Black pour with a 1 finger, creamy mocha head that has excellent retention and leaves great lacing. Every sip brings a new cascade of lacing streaking downward from the point where my lip met the glass. Aroma is loaded with roast, chocolate, toast and lactose, then some dark caramel, toffee nuts, earthy and woody notes and a little booziness. Flavor is mocha sweetened with lactose, toffee, roast, a little char, earth, old campfire wood, light earthy notes, and light fruity and floral notes toward the finish. Medium to heavy body, creamy entry, chewy middle, light, blanketing and mildly sharp carbonation, syrupy, but chalky finish. There is a lingering feeling of sharp carbonation on the tongue that is very strange. Good stuff overall, I do dig Lacto Stouts in general and this has lots of components to make it awesome, but just enough throwing it off to make it just "good". Okay, maybe "really good". While I liked this beer quite a bit it is a terrible value. I paid $6.50/355ml (or maybe 330ml?) bottle. There are better stouts to be had for a little more than that price for six times the volume. That assertion doesn’t affect my score, but it is worth noting.

Piwo dobre czarne intensywne palone pachnace slodem pieczonym tostem, a w smaku lekko mleczne i stoutowe. Wytrawne mimo lekkiego wrazenia slodyczy w pierwszej fazie degustacji. Brazowawa spora piana, srednio trwala. Rozgrzewajaca i tresciwa sycaca koncowka.
