COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Milk Stout
"2 varieties of hops & 3 types of malts"
Milk stout, also called cream or sweet stout, is a stout containing lactose, a sugar derived from milk. Because lactose is unfermentable by beer yeast, it adds sweetness and body to the finished beer. Milk stouts have been claimed to be nutritious, and were marketed as such in the early 1900s with claims that would make the FDA wince. One ad read, Ideal for nursing mothers, for the healthy, for the invalid, and for the worker. Surely! Of course, we couldnt stop at a traditional milk stout. Ours is a double, an addition to our 2X line, and at 7.5% abv is every bit as delicious as it sounds. To your health!

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Julios Liquors. Aroma is dark fruit and roasted malts with lactose and pungent alcohol. Appearance is almost opaque very dark brown with small light brown head with poor retention and negligible lacing. Taste is as aroma--sweet dark fruits over roasted malts and mild late alcohol. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, average early carbonation with late lively zing to the tip of the tongue, late burnt/ash quality to the finish. Overall, good but alcohol is too present and it is more carbonated than necessary.

Stoned99 (1429) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2016
341ml bottle from Craft Beer Cellar drank at 14C.Aroma: good nose of milk chocolate, wood. App: black with brown tint, small beige head little retention. Taste and palate: medium body, smooth, chocolaty, watery, subtle bitter finish. Overall: nose is great but this is kinda watery. As much as I dont really enjoy the watery feeling it?s how this should be. Smooth, not too tasty, sweet with light bitterness. Thats how Milk Stouts should be. This rating is more based on what it deserves than how I enjoyed it. Well done!

Bottle @ Friends/the chef. Appearance: pours clear dark brown with ok soapy beige head and lacing. aroma/taste: milk chocolate, chocolate, coffee and some citrus notes. palette: medium to strong malty aroma, average carbonation, medium to full body, medium to notable sweetness, somewhat balanced by a medium bitterness, average duration and a creamy texture. Overall: Tasteful and nicely roasted milk stout - usually not fond of the genre but this one works well .

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
355ml bottle. Black in colour with a thin beige head, light lacing. The aroma is of lactose, white sugar, some vanilla, light roast. The flavour is sweet first with some roasty malts, light chocolate, nutty. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet with a roasted bitterness. Thinner then their other stouts but quite drinkable.

JFGrind (2025) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Dead of Winter maybe the best time for a strong stout. 2X Stout being a coffee dominated sweet stout with full black body, tan head and strong alcohol warming fits the bill. Licorice, chocolate and roast round out the Double Milk Stout.

Pours a dark black with tan head. Has a faint aroma of chocolate and malt. A strong taste of coffee, dark chocolate, hops, grains, vanilla, and toasted malts. A dry aftertaste from the malts and grains.
