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.

Dark brown clear colour with mousse-like firm light brown head. Aroma is without presence of alcohol, but with evident presence of hops (reminiscences of tropical fruit, but prevailing notes of malts: vanilla, chocolate, plums, coffe, lactose. Taste is also without presence of alcohol. You can detect hops - tropical fruit, pine, little citrous, but than prevails sweet malty notes: chocolate, little roasted, coffee. Hop bitterness is high, malt sweetness is medium. Body is dry and soft, bitterness is medium, also in finish, with dry long lasting bitter finsh. Very good sweet stout.

Decent enough, but for me not that great. Has good mouthfeel, but its just a little plain.

JStax (3680) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Near black beer with a grey head of foam. The aroma has big earthy bitterness and roast. The taste is moderately sweet, but carries through on the bitterness. A pretty different take on a sweet stout. Very enjoyable.

Tap at cottonwood. Pours black with a nice brown head. Aroma is coffee, a bit of milk and sugar, milk chocolate. Smells great. Taste is creamy, milk chocolate, espresso, sweet coffee. Faint cream. Creamy palate, medium carbonation. Really sweet, a bit much for a full beer.

BVery (7896) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Tap at Cottonwood. Very dark dense pour with a clingy beige head. Licorice and dark fruity sweetness all over this. Coats the lips with extreme sweetness. But in a pretty cool way. Taster size is more than enough, but fun.
