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.

spacecube (1341) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
330ml bottle, pours black with a foam tan head. Aroma is full of roasted malts, with lots of citrus hop, zesty and tangy in the middle. Body is thin for a stout, the lactose doesn’t fill this out as much as I would expect, has the feel of a black IPA, a good one though. Bitter, short finish with soft carbonation.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2015
Above average for the style, but flawed, at least in the case of this bottle. Falls down on the mouthfeel. A distractedly quick pour gave an inch of charcoal brown body and four inches of rocky foam. A more traditional balance developed in less than a minute. Rich aroma of dark chocolate, cappuccino and port. Surprisingly thin in the body, considering the brewer’s stated intention. May have lost condition in the bottle or somewhere on the voyage to Oz. Rather than fluffy, this one was slick with very muted carbonation. Didn’t really flatter the style. Sweet and milky - can taste the lactose. Good bitterness. Sweet chocolate, vanilla. Minor disappointment. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 1/7/19)

Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable light tan head. Clear aroma of roast and hops, with notes of liquorice and malt. Bitter, roasty flavour, with notes of coffee, liquorice and C-hops. Bitterish and roasty aftertaste with notes of citrus. Not much sweetness about this Sweet Stout, but okay.

Pitch black, medium sized tan head. Herbal aroma, hops and chocolate, marvelous combination. Taste is bitter chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts, hops, coffee. Soft carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Long bittersweet cocoa hoppy finish. Spectacular.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Oil-black with three inches of medium-brown head, moderate-coarse, frothy. Aroma is coniferous forest, sap, dark chocolate, some bark/earth and toast. Some caramel, hint of apple wood. Body is medium weight, but the carbonation is very low lending it a heavier perceived weight. Starchy and somewhat oily. Carbonation is fat and has little burn. Flavor is sap, spicy-herbal hops, light smooth caramel sweetness, toast/ toasted wood. Overall: defies style conventions. A hoppy milk stout: quite unusual, but nonetheless very yummy!
