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.

Je trouve ça très agréable ! crémeux et doux avec en sous main, la force d’un stout assagi. Avec une pointe houblonné pour pas que ça roupille non plus. A noter aussi, un très joli col de mousse peu épais mais doté de nombreuses bulles fines. Vraiment, une bonne surprise délicate pour un dimanche soir alors que dehors le temps fraîchit !

Bottle @ csakajosor darker brown head. Nose of cocoa and earth, but mostly cocoa. Tases like my mothers cafe latte. The milk (lactose) is distinct but very nice.

Saeglopur (1577) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 24, 2015
330 ml bottle from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Black body, with a big, dense, creamy, lacing, dark beige head.
Aroma of coffee, lactose, dark chocolate, cocoa, some ash, some liquorice, slight hops.
Tastes of coffee, lactose, cocoa, bitter chocolate, liquorice, some ash, citric hops from the background.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes smooth, roasty-bitter, dry, with coffee, wood, liquorice, slight ash, long-lasting citric hop notes.

Really tasty. Quite opposing aromas, with roast, lactose, some ash and surprising amounts of hops, but very well balanced, so that it all fits together and drinks really smooth. The lactose and the hops lead to a fresh impression, the ABV isn’t noticable at all. Among the best Milk Stouts I’ve had so far.

Estebanik (563) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 12, 2015
Ladna, bezowa piana. Aromat mocno palony, wrecz risowy, ale lamany przez owoce (winogrona). Jest tez odczuwalna popiolowosc. Nieco za wysoko wysycone. Palony aftertaste. Laktoza prawie nieodczuwalna.

Bottle from Blackrock cellar. Pours black with reddish hues. Lactose, coffee, floral, chocolate nose. Flavour is liquorice, lactose, milk chocolate with a dry sweet tobacco coffee finish. Not a style I’m crazy about but nice example.

On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Pours black with creamy beige head. Aroma of coffee, cacao, vanilla, hay, dark dried fruits, fruity hops. Taste malty sweet, with bitterness from both roasted malt and hops. Silky mouth feel.

Szuper Kis sztout, aranyfeketébe bújtatva, és cukorral felturbozva. Ördögien keserű.

leghorn99 (198) - Livorno, ITALY - AUG 8, 2015
Semplicemente nera; schiuma abbondante, cremosa, soffice, di ottima persistenza. Al naso dominano caffè espresso e cioccolato, accompagnati la leggere punte floreali; si avvertono anche note di cereali e pane appena sfornato. Questo mix, rende tutto rotondo e finemente decorato da ciliegie nere. Il palato è morbido, pieno e cremoso in perfetta armonia con il naso. Caffè e ciliegia dominano con note di cenere e carbone. L’insieme è morbido e dolce, ma vira abbastanza velocemente verso l’amaro del caffè. La carbonazione è bassa, nel retrogusto si avvertono note di anacardi e nocciole; un tocco di Gin e Sambuco. Il finale rimane un pò più amaro rispetto all’attacco, virando su note di caffè e liquirizia.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - AUG 8, 2015
7%ABV. Sweet Stout. Poured out of the bottle a beautiful glossy black brown. 40°SRM. Nose is clean , grassy and clear sugar sweet. Nice malty flavors. The added lactose was a stroke of genius. Few other stouts have as inviting a nose. Pronounced carbonation. Umami. Short hoppy finish. Clean finish. Deep dark roasted flavors. Sweet malts. Burnt milk pudding. Alcohol is very well balanced. Beware the sneaky kick in the pants. Also if you do get kicked in the pants, it’ll never be sweeter than by the fine folks at To Øl. Goes on favorites list.
