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.

Nice balanced stout. Has notes of roasted coffee malt, but also a soft touch of the milk. Has some herbs as well, anise I think.

ComradeK (992) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large tan head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Dark chocolate, latte, whipped cream and mild herbal hops make up the aroma. Mild herbal hops mix with roasty flavours up front, before giving way to milk chocolate and cappuccino in the mid-palate. Roasty malt and espresso bitterness come in at the finish. A nice stout, with a good balance of sweetness and bitterness.

dark brown, fluffy tan head, full bodied, warming, roasty, chocolate, lots of dank resinous piney simcoe hops, chocolate orange, very small residual sweetness, probably not much lactose here. long hoppy bitter finish...its a BIPA really!

mgajdaczewa (455) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 29, 2014
W aromacie typowe dla milk stouta nuty palonych słodów, lekka słodycz przywołująca na myśl słodką kawę, gorzka czekolada. W smaku niezwykle pełne, atakujące od pierwszych sekund agresywną palonością, ale i sporą podbudową słodową. Sprawia wrażenie nieco niezharmonizowanego, finisz jest bardzo długi, palony i chmielowy, choć czuć w nim echa słodyczy. Ta "dzikość" ma jednak sporo uroku. Bardzo smaczne piwo.

SimonTja (241) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2014
This is good. Very balanced, quite sweet, thick for 7%, really nice roast. It’s just a really nice complex blend with no extreme output of a particular flavour, but i get some hints of rye bread and caramel, the roast level on this one is just perfect.

Vaiz (3284) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. Black pour, solid tan head. Aroma is roasted, bread, caramel, chocolate, some cream and a bit spicy. Flavor is bitter roasted malts, creamy, slightly sweet and with a nice thick body. Well balanced. Nice brew, only maybe a bit too creamy.

subcombicio (163) - Marghera, ITALY - MAY 23, 2014
Considerando che come stile le milk stout non sono tra le mie preferite, questa birra si fa apprezzare comunque grazie a un bel corpo e al bilanciamento tra dolce e acidulo !!!
