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!

Leighton (20531) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle at Chrisos 2012 Pre-GBBF Shindig, London. Pours dark brown with a fine, white foam head. Dusty cocoa nose, a bit of alcohol. Nice, rich flavor with some sugary chocolate. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Medium to heavy sweetness on the finish, some earth, dirt, burnt sugar, moderate roast. Very sweet. Decent overall.

Ericular (995) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 8, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Pours really dark with nice tan head and good lacing. Aroma is mainly sweet lactose, with a little bit of roast taking a back seat. Let this warm up quite a bit first. Taste is very sweet up front, with more roast and a little bitter hops coming through in the end. Not bad at all. Either I got a better bottle this time, or else I can appreciate a good stout now. I get the sweet lactose up front, but thats about the only appealing thing about this one for me. Thick texture, burnt coffee taste, almost acrid. My deviation from the average makes me believe this beer has gone bad. Bottled 7 months ago... I know its got a high ABV, but that seems too long regardless. 4+4+3+3+4=1.8

berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle (355ml) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Very dark brown/black colour. Half-inch beige head that reduces quite rapidly, leaving a thin ring and a small amount of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, raw coffee beans, cola, cream, licorice, wood. Also the unmistakable Southern Tier funky hop twist. Medium body, soft carbonation. Semi-sweet taste with a growing bitterness having a chocolate/coffee/licorice characteristic. Nicely complex and balanced.

BREWMUSKCLES (2646) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2012
dark chocolate and some acrid smoke the beer seems a little light in the body. slick mouthfeel and clear liquid look to it. sweet cocoa and fading foamy head. not too much else really going on and for that matter no need for it.

trujahwarrior (510) - Monroe, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours almost black with hardly any head and light lacing. Smells like roasted malt, coffee , chocolate and milk. Tastes of all the some things I mentioned above with a nice sweetness to it. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Overall this is a good milk stout, actually one of the better ones I?ve tried.
