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 doesnt 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.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Black, very strong brown head. Chocolate, vanilla and light hoppiness (the noble kind, it seems) on the nose. Lovely thick mouthfeel, chocolate, roasted malt, tingling bitterness - Im loving this. Finishes a bit hoppy and spicy, in a nice contrast, and warming. This might be among my all-time favourites.

Dark hue. Chocolate, espresso aroma. Lacey head. Immediately when drinking it you can sense the care put into its creation. Full bodied. Bitter but sweet aftertaste. A beer meant for a cool day or slightly warming day. I would like to taste a barrel aged version of this, with the abv turned up. Overall a good beer.

33cl bottle Appearance: Black with a massive thick, bubbly beige head . Leaving some good lacing. Aroma: Cocoa powder, vanilla, roasted malts, fresh coffee and soome resinious hops. Taste: Quite sweet, but never cloying. Cocoa Powder, light caramel with some bitterness of roasted malts and coffee tones, again someresinious hops in spices are there in the finish. Aftertaste is a bit short. Palate: fullbody. /medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel. Very good brew with the only flaw its aftertaste is a bit on the short live side. Rich taste, full body with reasonable 7% ABV,

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2015 Butelka, warka do 27/11/18. Bardzo bujna, ciemna, brunatno-brazowa piana, zroznicowane te pecherzyki, opada stosunkowo wolno do korzuszka nierownego, ladnie zostaje na szkle. Aromat bardzo intensywny, glownie palanosc, ale tez czekolada (gorzka, nie mleczna), kakao, pralinki, kandyzowany cukier, sliwki w czekoladzie... W smaku wiekszosc z powyzszych tez czuc, czuc tez slodowosc, Wszystko ladnie ulozone, zharmonizowane. Po kazdym lyku na dlugo pozostaja posmaki, lekka goryczka i kwaskowatosc. Bardzo pelne. Sama tekstura przesympatyczna w odbiorze, gesta, lepka, kremowa, oleista. Wysycenie gorne stany niskiego. Mozna smakowac malymi lyczkami. Klasa.

ta sama warka, troszke inne wrazenia - tym razem przeszkadzala mi nieco kwaskowatosc, ktora o dziwo tym silniejsza byla im chlodniejsze piwo. Reszta - bez zmian :)

Bottle (12 oz).

Appearance: Black with a massive thick, bubbly mocha head and good lacing.

Aroma: Cocoa powder, moderate sweetness, vanilla, light spiciness and fresh grounded coffee.

Taste: Moderately sweet and never cloying. Cocoa powder along vanilla, coffee, light caramel, hints of spices, a touch of berries and very light bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. Silky mouthfeel. A tad oily too. Short lasting aftertaste.

Overall: Im usually not a fan of Sweet Stouts, but I dont have much bad things to say about this one. The balance is impressive, its quite tasty, not too sweet and quite easy to drink for the style. It might be a tad too perfumy, but Im being picky here.
