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.

Dark brown, great, long lasting brown head. Aroma: almost like barley wine; toast, cereal, caramel, chocolate. Heavy to medium sweetness, full body, medium to high bitterness. Two layers in flavour, first is malty sweetness nicely integrated with bit of lactose and some licorice, second layer is dark malts with quite sharp roastiness (although there’s nice hint of lactose at finish). Bit noticeable alcohol in taste. Dessert beer.

Negra, opaca, coronada por una espuma beige con buena retención. En nariz; pino, café con leche, cacao, torrefacta. En boca; carbonatación media y cuerpo medio. Sabor; bastante resinosa, quemada, solvente, final seco y con toques a café amargo. Descompensada. Aún así, un copazo recomendable.

hawthorne00 (3506) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2016
7 is not a low alcohol percentage FFS. Bottle. Black with a tan head that collapses to a 1/2 cm. 3 More fudgy than roasty aroma with Indian sweet shop spices, some coffee, pine, vague citrus, pineapple.7+ Yes very silky. Nice smooth and sweet with mocha, vanilla, gentle roast, dark sugars, hints of tropical fruit. But pine and medicinal bitter flavours run over the top. Aftertaste of licorice and menthol. Not harmonious. Get the feeling these guys are being "clever" for its own sake.

Brown bottle, 330ml. Pours dark dark brown with a perfect brown head subsiding slowly. Scent is sour yeast, caramel, brown sugar, and other complexities that I cannot name. Taste is super dense, super bitter roasted malt with flavors of coffee, toffee, whiskey, and hickory smoke. Mouthfeel is medium dense and with a nice warming feel. Great.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 16, 2016
Mar. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle. It poured almost black body with cocoa brown head. Aroma of licorice, dark fruit, coffee, cocoa and some alcohol. Fine, smelled just like an IS. Lightly sweet, dark fruit, cocoa, touch of yogurt. There was also some very light hop bitterness. Medium in body with very smooth palate and long, rounded, finish, where herbal bitter was rounded and overwhelmed by pleasant chocolate malt. Sweet stouts can get really ugly but this was pleasant, not really sweet, just like a regular one. Nice.
