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!

Southern Tier’s sweet milk Stout. Named "Double" because of the two varieties of hops used. They come through nicely actually, a bit of a floral tone behind the rich malts.

gripweed57 (2302) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Opaque black liquid topped by a large dense tan head. Subtle roasted malt nose hints at chocolate and dark coffee. Sweet roasted malt flavor has notes of bittersweet chocolate and robust espresso. An underlying bitterness throughout arises in finish with some resiny hops. Dry malt aftertaste. Reminiscent of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, only sweeter. skunky,

3.4
HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2017
September 20, 2013 - 12oz bottle at Pub Italia (Ottawa). Nearly opaque ruby-black with a smallish mottle creamy tan head. Aroma has lacto sourness, solid coffee roast, mineral and herbal bitterness - has most of the markers of a sweet stout with more bitterness. Taste follows - lactose, dark chocolate, mineral hardness and noticeable alcohol. Average body, creamy and somewhat still mouthfeel - decent enough, not all that memorable.

3.7
skortila (5793) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2017
Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma has roast, lactics, coffee, licorice. Black coloured beer with a medium sized off-white, frothy head. The taste is light bitter and has sweetness, bit roast, coffee and lactic tones. Medium bodied beer.

3.2

355ml bottle from the Beer Junction at Sofi’s. 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.

3.2
unclefrito62 (269) - Stow, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2017
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.
