COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

pattysykes (19) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2017
Bottled, poured into a tulip. Aroma of coffee and milk. Pours completely black with a small light brown head that quickly dissipated into a tiny amount of tan lacing. Tastes sugary sweet, milky, a bit of coffee bean bitterness and some tartness that hangs around. Medium body and mild-to-moderate carbonisation. Found it to be a little too tart and a little too sugary sweet. Still, it does what it says on the bottle and tastes like a milk coffee (though with a bit too much added sugar).

dambor (620) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 21, 2017
Pours black with beautiful creamy head. Aroma: tons of coffee and chocolate, very intense for a non-imperial beer. There is also a touch of milkshake aroma. Taste: nice medium roastiness coupled with chocolate and coffer. Very drinkable.

11/20 fairly one dimensional stout but pleasant enough. Big taste for just 5%, taste is pretty in your face, no complexity, roast coffee dominates ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
