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!

AaronDaniel (35) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Appearance: This brew pours black with a dark tan head. There is some decent lacing. Smell: I get a lovely nose of sweet caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, cereal, and cream. Cant WAIT to dig in! Taste: My tongue is immediately enveloped in sweet roasted malts, espresso, milky cream, and bread. There is a faint note of alcohol present as well. This is a MANs beer! This stout finishes nicely leaving cream, espresso and sweetness on the palate. There is also very subtle hops that are tamed by the cream and roasted malts. This beer throws down heavy sweet malt goodness- just like I like- without being over-the-top-syruppy-gross! Mouthfeel: This has a medium to heavy tongue weight with ample carbonation. Overall: This is a phenomenal milk stout through and through. Ive had this bottled and on tap, and find myself utterly pleased. Its hard to find on tap. I only know one place: McLaddens in West Hartford, CT. This brew is a real treat. And, with 7.5% ABV at the same price as many inferiors, its well worth the investment. Southern Tier has never disappointed me. They really know how to make dark, rich beers teeming with complexity.

Draft at Sybarite Pig on nitro. American pint glass. Dark brown, nearly black pour with thick light brown head. Perfect beer on nitro. Aroma strong with coffee, chocolate, smoke and vanilla. Taste of chocolate and coffee first with lingering nut, smoke and prunes. Slight bitter finish with vanilla. Mouth is very smooth and milk creaminess.

Beer tasting. The milk comes through nicely, balanced with hops, malt, and perhaps a small amount of raisins.

Shag (2943) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2013
Nitro tap - A black appearance with the standard perfect beige head. The aroma is faint for a stout with chocolate and coffee mainly showing up. The flavor is a bit sweet with some chocolate, milky notes, and a bit of something burnt going on. There is an out of place sour element in the finish. Overall wasnt that great but didnt totally suck or anything.

DiarmaidBHK (4541) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. Pours black with a thin khaki head that leaves some lacing. Big malt notes on the nose. Definitely get a lot of the lactose on the tongue and the finsih which seems to bring out the roasted quality of the malt. Solid.

jeremyh70 (1102) - Missouri, USA - APR 17, 2013
Brown with a small head and little lacing. Aroma of chocolate, brewed coffee and roasted malt. Chocolate comes through in taste with some lactose sweetness and a burnt roast flavor that is bitter and harsh. Mouthfeel is semi creamy and medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The unpleasant aftertaste from the roast ruins this beer for me. ---Jeremy H

jonas (7400) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - APR 15, 2013
Bottle. Black, low head. Roast aroma. Demera sugar, cedar, coffee notes, light wood and lactic notes. Fitting medium to light body. Sparkly roast finish. Slightly unusual but ultimately pleasant.
