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 couldn’t 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 poured into a Lagunitas jar. Deep, dark aroma, opaque dark brown color with a small head. Not too heavy bodied and the by now standard (and to me quite annoying) combo of chocolate and coffee grounds flavors are pretty well muted, as is the lactose sweetness, also a plus with me. There’s a quite acceptable moderate bitterness on the finish and the alcohol is well disguised. There is a little bit of dank dogginess in the middle of the flavor (or was I just sitting next to a wet dog while drinking?). Anywho, pretty decent milk stout and I will have another, thank you...

12-ounce bottle pour. Pours a dark brown with a tan head that lingers and clings to the glass. Aromas of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Tastes the same flavors with some caramel and faint licorice. The lactose clings to the tongue in this medium-bodied brew. This is so drinkable; deceptively smooth for 7.5 percent alcohol.

mansquito (6695) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Nighthawk, Brooklyn tap: pours black with a bone nitro pour head. Aroma is chocolate, deli coffee, sugar. Body is soft because of the nitro. Taste is somewhat sweet, but not too much so. Pretty easy to drink. Low bitterness. Not bad.

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Taste the same with some malty sweetness, caramel, licorice, vanilla and some nutty flavors. Very nice complex ale. Little to no lacing in the glass. Medium palate.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 30, 2015
12oz bottle. Black body with lasting tan foam. Nice chocolate, sugary, roasty aromas. Smooth medium body. Dark chocolate, roasty, lactose sweet flavors----tasty.

Jethro6191 (508) - Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Pours a very dark brown with a thin wispy tan head. The aroma is rich and creamy with notes of roasted barley, chocolate, and coffee. Dark roasted grains, chocolate, espresso, and vanilla flavors. Moderate hop bitterness. Full bodied with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel with residual sweetness. Overall a very good stout, dark and sweet with nice coffee and chocolate notes.

3.6
SG111 (1927) - New York, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Canned. Pours light coffee color, ok-sized head. It looks like a milk-stout, definitely not too dark in color, or too roasted as far as malts go. Aroma is sweet chocolate, sweet almost to the point that I feel like I’m picking up sweet dark fruit notes, like raisin, or cherry. So mostly sweet chocolate and that lactose sweetness. Flavor is silky smooth stout, definitely get that creamy lactose milk sweetness.

2.8
bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark black, a bit watery looking, almost no head. Aroma of toasted malts, semi sweet chocolate, coffee. Flavor followed the nose perfectly. Body was medium and the texture was on the thin side. Carbonation was average and the finish was slightly bitter.
