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.

czar (4360) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
pours oily almost black with a frothy/creamy dark beige head, excellent retention and strong lacing. citrus and melons, spicy cinnamon, roastiness-plenty, never ashy, well-dosed sweetness - buckwheat honey and molasses, minerals, bitter chocolate and fresh roasted coffee beans, red fruitiness- cranberries, some roasted acidity - never overwhelming. light carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky, semi-sweet piney-peppery-citrusy-spicy finish. quite fragrant for a sweet stout. very solid stuff.

Pleasant oily black poor with thin mocha head. Aroma of chocolate and slight creamy coffee. Taste is thick like a beer milk shake very nice. Flavour not as full on as I was expecting but was very nice and well balanced. Great beer.

Procent (86) - POLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Aromat mocno słodowy, w tle kawa zbożowa i karmel oraz delikatny, dziwny aromat, jakby lekko chlorowy. Piana gęsta, kremowa o bezowej barwie z ładnym lacingiem. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. W smaku kawa z mlekiem, po prostu, ciężko wyczuć cokolwiek innego. Doskonałe odczucie w ustach, pełne, gęste, kremowe, nasycenie niskie ku średniemu, goryczka także miedzy niską a średnią, kawowa, pozostaje w ustach. Piwo bardzo delikatne, bardzo dobrze ułożone. Jak dla mnie, jak na sweet stout to zbyt mało w nim słodyczy ale i tak bardzo dobre. Warka do 27.11.2018r.

mansquito (3385) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC 375ml ($6.25): Pours black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted malts, dark espresso. Thick and very creamy. Not really all that sweet. Plenty of bitterness. There is something that is not quite a boozy note, but the alcohol adds another sort of flavor here. Quite a good deal of lactose. Very well put together.

Bottle from Metro Liquor, Victoria; bb 27/11/18
Black color with large and thick brownish head. The aroma is roasty and pungent; creamy freshly brewed coffee and resiny hops. Smooth mouthfeel, good body structure; very good roasted malt flavor with hints of chocolate and coffee, not too dry; balanced bitterness with a good amount of hop resins.

33 cl. Meilleure avant le 27/11/18. J’ai bien aimé ce sweet stout qui ressemble beaucoup à une black ipa de part ses houblons aromatiques et bien amères. Une certaine rondeur la distingue.

Très noire que cette bière. Sa tête brune est en pleine expansion. Une dentelle d’un pouce d’épaisseur. C’est quelque chose! Le nez amuse et questionne. Beaucoup de choses comme du grain noir différemment travaillé, du lactose, de la pruche, du citron, du café mocha. Le goût imite et intéresse. L’amertume et les arômes des malts, les houblons à l’américaine ainsi que le lactose aux rebords légèrement surets offrent une honnête prestation. En bouche, le liquide montre un corps assez dense sans être lourd. La texture est affectée par des bulles fines et piquantes. En arrière-goût, les houblons et les malts rôtis et torréfiés montrent une amertume marquée et aromatique. 33 cl. Meilleure avant le 27/11/18.
