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.

Beergaard (236) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 8, 2015
Pitch blach beer with a nice beige and long lasting head. Aroma is sweet and kind of soapy with notes of chocolate. Pretty thich and creamy mouthfeel - not overly complex but nonetheless quite well ballanced between bitter and sweet. Lingers for a while - very drinkable.

AirForceHops (4702) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Purchased this 330 ml bottle at a random Liquor store in Tampa, (can’t remember the name) pitch black with thin off white head. Aroma is real nice. Roasted malts, roasted coffee bean, and a light oak type / earth note.

The body is fuller with a smooth, creamy texture, exactly what I what in the style. The flavor has a larger hop presence that I was not expecting. Really caught me off guard with the level of bitterness. The roasted malt and coffee is here with the balance of the bitterness. The hop variety gives a subdued citrus note. The hope profile can’t be ignored. But the major plus side is this bottle didn’t sit around forever on the shelf. Without a doubt this is better than average and any stout lover or Black IPA fan should enjoy this beauty.

spacecube (1378) - 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)

MiP (14488) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle, 7%. Very roasted aroma, some citric aroma hop. Black colour. Big stable dark brown head. The flavour is nicely citric. Has a piney, citric, and jammy hop note. The malt is sweetish and nicely roasted.
