COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
O estilo Milk Stout é originário da Grã-Bretanha do séc. XIX, como uma forma de proporcionar uma cerveja mais nutritiva e assim fornecer mais energia aos trabalhadores ao longo do dia. Esta premissa, ainda que duvidosa, resultou num estilo novo e único. A Galáxia é uma cerveja intensa e cremosa, com notas de chocolate, café e caramelo que são dadas pelos maltes torrados. Esta stout tem um final ligeiramente adocicado proveniente da adição de açúcar de leite.

Milk Stout originated in 19th century Britain as a way to promote a more nutrious beer to help energize workers throughout the day. Those claims were dubious, but it resulted in a unique, new style. Galáxia is a rich and creamy beer, with chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors from the roasted malts. This stout has a slightly sweet finish from the addition of milk sugar.

DruncanVeasey (8603) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2018
Bottle, October 2016. More rich, sensuous, contemplative beer from my new favourite brewery. Tarry pour, reflective and inky with a cratered beige foam going nowhere. Oily Royal Belgian mouthfeel and complex leathery dried fruit, fig, pepper, molasses, mocha and bitter chocolate aspects belonging to a considerably more potent beast. One if those beers that has you repeatedly double taking at the ABV. Aroma of bitter chocolate, dark cherry and plum fruit; molasses, burnt cinder toffee and Everton mint. Seriously packed with depth and drinkability. Brilliant stout.

olsvammel (7332) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2017
Bottle from my father, bought in Portugal. Dark malty and light phenolic smell. Similar taste, roasted and toasted. Spritsy mouthfeel and high carbonation. I usually love milk stouts due to their well rounded taste, but this one was quite rough.
