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.

Black pour with a 1 finger, creamy mocha head that has excellent retention and leaves great lacing. Every sip brings a new cascade of lacing streaking downward from the point where my lip met the glass. Aroma is loaded with roast, chocolate, toast and lactose, then some dark caramel, toffee nuts, earthy and woody notes and a little booziness. Flavor is mocha sweetened with lactose, toffee, roast, a little char, earth, old campfire wood, light earthy notes, and light fruity and floral notes toward the finish. Medium to heavy body, creamy entry, chewy middle, light, blanketing and mildly sharp carbonation, syrupy, but chalky finish. There is a lingering feeling of sharp carbonation on the tongue that is very strange. Good stuff overall, I do dig Lacto Stouts in general and this has lots of components to make it awesome, but just enough throwing it off to make it just "good". Okay, maybe "really good". While I liked this beer quite a bit it is a terrible value. I paid $6.50/355ml (or maybe 330ml?) bottle. There are better stouts to be had for a little more than that price for six times the volume. That assertion doesn’t affect my score, but it is worth noting.

coffee, cocoa and smells like metal (!?) thick dark brown colour with a tan head that seems to be intent on staying around, deep smooth dark chocolate bitterness with that metallicness coming through in the finish with far too much alcohol burn.

Nice roasty aroma. Some sweetness too. Pours black with a nearly white lace of head from tap. Really great roasted flavor. No bitterness at first and what’s there’s super gentle. Sweet and smooth. The bitterness is a great coffeeishness. I don’t really get much chocolate. Good thick body and really low carb.

On bottle at James Clarke, Sandefjord. Pitch black color, ok offwhite foam. Lightly roasted, good malt, coffee & leather - some milk. Medium/ full body & complexity . Some light immediate sweetness- balances well. Best milk stout so far- very Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turtles (477) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2015
330ml bottle from BeerGeek Bottle Shop. Dark with a large compact tan head that stays there for a long time. The aroma is bitter by chocolate and coffee, some vanilla sweetness and sweet dark dried fruits. Full body and a smooth, dry mouthfeel. The taste got roasted coffee, dark chocolate, herbal hops, caramel. Finish dry with some bitterness.

Niemalże wzorcowy słodki stout z toolowym sznytem, który jest cechą charakterystyczną ciemnych piw z tego browaru. Pyszny

Keg at Beergeek. Pours Black with a Brown head. Looks dramatic. Aroma of dense charred malt. Very full taste. Chocolate, coffee and resinous hops. Very dry and bitter. I usually refrain from milk stout because I expect it to have an irrational sweetness and that was not the case here. Delicious.

Pours a black body with a foamy dark khaki head that leaves spots of lace around the glass. Smell is of dark roasted malts, milk, cocoa, and black licorice. Taste is much the same with cocoa and licorice flavors on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a nice beer, gotta be the best milk stout i have tried.

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.
