Stout - Milk / Sweet

The Sweet Stout, or Milk Stout, is a very dark brown to black colored, sweet, full-bodied, slightly roasty ale that can suggest coffee-and-cream, or sweetened espresso. The sweetness in most Sweet Stouts comes from a lower bitterness level than most other stouts and a high percentage of unfermentable dextrins. Lactose, an unfermentable sugar, is frequently added to provide additional residual sweetness. Much sweeter and less bitter than other stouts except the stronger Foreign Stout. The roast character is mild, not burnt like other stouts. Somewhat similar in balance to Oatmeal Stouts, albeit with more sweetness.
