Though Stone Brewing Co. is well known for massive stouts such as the venerable Stone Imperial Russian Stout (10.6% abv) and the more recent collaborative w00tstouts (13%-13.5% abv), at a mere 4.2% abv Stone Coffee Milk Stout presents a walk on the significantly milder, far opposite side of the stout spectrum. Rather than being as bombastic as its MUCH higher alcohol cousins, this beer is even on the palate, bringing on a hint of coffee with a highly drinkable yet quite modest backdrop of chocolate and roasty notes. At a mere 4.2% ABV, its the lowest-alcohol bottled beer weve released in 15 years (the previous being our 3.9% abv one-off release called Lees Mild in 2009), and you can expect a correspondingly modest body and mouthfeel. Additionally, while some milk stouts have more residual lactose sugar, we opted for a less sweet approach to the category, so youll notice it finishes fairly dry on the palate. Want more body or a more intense flavor profile? We got that, but this aint it. This is the lil one in our stable. Enjoy it for what it is and for what its not.

hayduke (5062) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 10, 2017
From a 12 oz bottle. Interesting how the commercial description still says 4.2% ABV when it is clearly 5.0% ABV. Poured black with a big tan head and thick lacing rings/ Nose of chocolate roasted malts. Full body Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly chocolate with lactose. Dont get much coffee. Bitter finish Quite good.

alteregoo (1202) - POLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Beżowa, średnio trwała piana. Barwa czarna z brązowymi refleksami. Aromat bardzo przyjemny - kawa, mleczna czekolada, karmelki Werthers Original... W smaku dokładnie to samo, dość słodko, mlecznie, z fajną, wyraźną gorzką kontrą, kawowo palono popiołową. Średnie wysycenie, lekkie w odbiorze, pijalne.
Konkretny sweet Stout, czuć laktozę, czuć kawę, kakao, minusem nieco za wysokie wysycenie.

Taster at Piney Mountain Bike Lounge. As lacking in subtlety as I would expect from Stone, but this time it works. Not too sweet and really smooth. Nicely balanced. Coffee is apparent but balances the sweet lactose well. Really good for the style. Just not sure its ever cold enough in SC for stouts.

Bamsen78 (5203) - Snderborg, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2017
Draught @ Fox & Hounds, Snderborg. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable tan head. Clear aroma of roast and malt, with notes of coffee. Bitter and roasty flavour with notes of coffee, complementef by sweetish touches of lactose and hints of vanilla. Roasty aftertaste with malty notes. Well-balanced and enjoyable. A very decent Stout!

Koelschtrinker (18769) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 28, 2017
Deutliche Kaffeenoten im Geruch. Malziger, vergleichsweise aber weinig aromatischer Antrunk. Dabei leicht bitter, eher trocken, die Kaffeenoten bleiben moderat. Sffig. 10/10/10/10/11/10
