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!

johnnnniee (4117) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours a solid dark brown/black color with a smallish tan head that dissipates to a ring on top. Smells of light roast, chocolate, and caramel with hints of vanilla and light fruit. The flavor is roasty and smokey with lots of chocolate and caramel as well as vanilla and dark fruits. Wow I wasnt expecting such a complex flavor based on the aroma. Medium body with a moderate level of antiabortion and a sweet almost sugary mouthfeel. Nice stout, Im glad I picked one up the other day.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle, bit of a low fill line. Nose is luscious chocolate and mocha, pours dark brown-black with a dense and rocky light brown head. Taste is semi-sweet with rich and attractive roast, chocolate, lactose. Smooth medium-full body with no real sourish tang but just a touch of etoh showing. Solid all-around starting shortstop, perhaps an all-star here and there but falls short of the HOF.

Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: light, chocolate, malt aroma. Appearance: large, rocky, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-brown/black body. Taste: lightly sweet and chocolatey initial flavor and lightly bitter and smokey finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Id like to try it from the tap.

jake65 (3514) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle: Two fingers of creamy tan head sits atop a very dark brown pour. The nose is straightforward enough with heavy roast and chocolate... it sets the tone for dry roastiness and hints of bittersweet cocoa. Tastes dry and roasty, as the nose suggests, and rich with bakers chocolate. Finishes dry and roasty with a little floral hop bitterness. Now available locally so Ill surely pick this up again.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Appearance: Black under a creamy khaki head which settles into a solid layer with splatters of lace left in its wake. Swirls creamy and enticing.
Nose: Creamy milky roasty chocolate caf latte marshmallow delights. Caramel cream on top. Burnt coffee in the back. Chocolate covered dark stone fruits in the middle raisins and dates.
Palate: Smooth rich mouthfeel with a medium weight that floats across my tastebuds. Roasty in the back. Fudge, brownies, and powdered sugar and cream in the middle. Toasted almonds along the edges followed by chocolate and vanilla bean. More vanilla cream in the back of each swallow. A gentle bitter roastiness of coffee and black cacao weaves in and out. Powdered milk and hot cocoa on the lips.
Final Thoughts: Delicious with an excellent balance of cream and roast matched by a luxurious silky mouthfeel. Truly a divine sweet stout worthy of royalty, or just average Joes and Janes. Either way, another sound beer from Southern Tier and one I look forward to enjoying again and again.

I had this at Global Brew. I thought had a roasted flavor, not as sweet as other sweet stouts. I would pass on drinking this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is a deep mahogany, appearing black through the center, with a thick and creamy brown head.
Aroma: The aroma is a bit weak but roasted malts, chocolate and creamer are noted.
Taste: This is lacking any real prominent flavor, mostly some bittersweet chocolate, mild roasted malts and light creamer notes.
Palate: Medium bodied medium carbonation. I like my stouts thicker at this ABV.
Overall: This isnt something I would buy again. I would rather pick up Left Hand Milk Stout as it is a much better representation of the style.

jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Poured into a tulip glass. Sexy tanned head with a dark black pour. Nose has a subtle blend of coffee and roasted malt. Hint of milk chocolate in there. Taste is much like the aroma very inoffensive nothing really jumping at me. Very tamed milk stout. Soft carbonation and soft mouthfeel. Very easy to drink but was after something more big and bold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2981) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2013
At just on cool this pours an opaque, darkest brown, almost black. Lifts up a decent, foamy tan head that holds well and leaves a thick lace. Smoky, burnt cedar and peppery, Hungarian Salami on the nose; heavily roasted coffee, light butter, light cocoa in there too. Creamy, smooth and silky on the palate. Bitter, burnt coffee bean and spicy, bitter hops on the finish. Medial almost lean body; luckily with good presence. No lactose or milk sugars evident; pretty dry overall. Malty, sandy, gritty roasted midpalate; smoke and ash linger long between sips. No alcohol presence. Not much here. Goes down alright but is mostly forgettable. Hoped for more!
