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.

Huge thanks to Heavy who gave it to me, shared it with Višnja, Goran and Hrabren. Almost pitch black body with some light amber notes. Sharp roasty coffee aroma, malty. Sweet roasty malty notes with lovely herbal-lemony hoppiness popping up here and there and lactose sweetness just slightly rearing its head here & there (not entirely absent as per deScription if I remember correctly). Very light chocolate. Though initially a tad rough, this is a very, very enjoyable stout. And I could expect nothing less from this brewery!

weihenweizen (3083) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle poured into a snifter. Opaque black with medium light brown head. Aroma is nice lactose, thick body, medium carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is roasty, burnt malt, anise, some lactose, and slightly dry finish. Not that malty, pretty heavy for the ABV, but pretty good.

Bottle at Hopfanatic. Black colour with a thick brown, long lasting head. Nose of chocolate and coffee. Taste is also dominated by coffee and chocolaty notes with a bit of bitterness in the end. Palate is thick, heavy, with medium carbonation. A nice beer with a definitive character.

McWorta (1451) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 10, 2015
Dark brown-black with a frothy tan head and good lacings. Aromas of roast malts, milk chocolate, coffee and herbal notes develop. Lightly carbonated and smooth texture offering a rather full body. Light chocolatey sweetness with light spicey herbal liquorice notes and a well balanced roast bitterness. Lasting finish.

Kosmokrator (847) - ITALY - DEC 2, 2015
Stout di buona intensità, caffè e cioccolato in dose parsimoniosa ma ben calibrata, malto, avena, zucchero a velo. Non impazzisco per lo stile classico ma questa è molto piacevole.
