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!

First high-abv milk stout Ive ever had. I find it to be less "roasty" than most stouts, and it reminds me of a baltic porter due to the high abv and malty sweetness. The alcohol is definitely at the forefront of the flavor profile. But, the lactose makes it seem smoother than expected. A unique brew, and definitely a successful experiment.

355ml bottle from the Beer Junction at Sofis. Bottlee on 2016-11-30. Pours an almost black with a tan head. Aroma is fruity and roasted malt. Taste is the same with some sweetness, sourness, high roasted malt and hoppy bitterness. Quite harsh and not very pleasant.

12 ounce bottle. Pitch black in color with small tan head. Lightly carbonated. Not much aroma. I like the sweetness off setting the stout bitterness. Very smooth on the palate and this is above average stout.

Awesome. Mellow and smooth, nothing gets in the way, but not boring. Just like a sweet stout should be. Easy in every direction.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body. The mild aroma was dark malt. The semi-thick crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt dark malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.
