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.

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle - 330ml. Pours an opaque black body with an average, lasting, beife creamy head. Fantastic, complex malty/hoppy aroma with coffeeish, licorice, oaky, and bready hints. Its robust, very well balanced taste carries chocolate, coffeeish, and woody notes. Ends with a long, moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Awesome!

BeerGolem (707) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with medium, creamy beige head. Aroma features a good mix of chocolate, vanilla, coffee and malts. Taste is mostly about coffee bitterness, but it is also moderatey sweet. Light and drinkable. Nothing spectacular, but a job well done.

Syfher (106) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle of 33cl, in a Tumbler glass; room temperature. First of all, nice appearance with a creamy brown head ! The aroma is strong and we can feel the subtle aroma of sugar. The taste is very good, strong stout one, with bitterness and a stickness which overhelmed all. The palate is sticky but smoky too. Very nice beer, go try it !

Mortlach (1005) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
Handpump @ Buskers Pub. Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma color beige-cappuccino. Al naso sentori di cioccolato fondente, cappuccino, note di caffè, alcol, buona intensità. In bocca è equilibrata, non troppo dolce, ha un buon corpo e una lunga persistenza in bocca. Ben fatta, le manca forse solo un po’ di eleganza.

Mrnoluv (177) - long beach, California, USA - NOV 26, 2014
The smell is yeast/malt lactose, the look light brown head and pitch black, the taste is now what I expected. Not creamy, not sweet, I taste strong coffee and cocoa note that do blend well after the swallow.
