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!

ben4321 (6020) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Oak Tree, 12/21/12

Aroma: The nose has some caramel malts, chocolate, a milky sweetness, and some toffee notes
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with a small light-brown colored head and some mild lace
Flavor: The taste is definitely on the sweet-side, though not cloyingly so, and it has a mildly bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium, with a smooth, clean feel, a soft-to-average carbonation, and a creamy finish
Overall Impression: Overall, I think this one turned out very nicely. The old add about milk stouts in the description is hilarious, come get some nursing mothers and invalids! Anyway, as for the beer itself, they got some nice milky sweetness and creaminess out of the lactose. The 7.5% is extremely well hidden. All-in-all, this one works pretty well.

tmongoose (2305) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 19, 2012
12oz bottle pours almost opaque black with frothy mocha colored head. The aroma of roasted malts, hints of coffee and chocolates. This is a medium bodied beer. The flavors are of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee with an underlying sweet base. Very good stout. Thought it would be sweeter but it is muted under the malt and chocolate flavors.

chanokokoro (138) - Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2012
12 oz. bottle poured into a Southern Tier Brewing Company branded "imperial glass" (stemmed tulip), Pours a dark brown capped with a beige one and a half finger head. Average retention and noticeable splotchy lacing here and there. Pleasant roasted notes greet the nose, sweet bittersweet cocoa power as well. Opens with roasted malt some dark chocolate that transisitons to milk chocolate as the sweet lactose sugar joins in creating a semi-sweet chocolate milk notes. Finishes with mild roasted malts and some lingering cocoa. Medium bodied, smooth, some creaminess-moderate carbonation. One of the better readily available milk stouts available, very well-balanced, never overly sweet. Recommended.

realaledrinker (35) - Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Poured dark with a small and quickly disappearing head. Malty characteristics were more than one might expect. It is smooth and full on the palate but the sweetness hid most of the roasted character that was present in the aroma. Overall a pretty good beer but far from my favorite.

Itzjerm (2487) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2012
This is definilty a bitter milk stout. Stouts are usually a bit more smooth on the palate. Bitter doesnt mean sour... just bitter. Not bad. not great either. I cant say I wouldnt skip it again but not top of my list.

solidfunk (8063) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Smells very smoky. Lots of dark, roasted malt as well. Pours pretty black. Aroma of nuts, coffee and a little lactose in there. Some booze as well. Medium carbonation. Taste is sweet and bitter - a good balance between them both. Really enjoyed this one. Bottle from Village Beer Merchant.
