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 it’s 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, it’s the lowest-alcohol bottled beer we’ve released in 15 years (the previous being our 3.9% abv one-off release called Lee’s 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 you’ll notice it finishes fairly dry on the palate. Want more body or a more intense flavor profile? We got that, but this ain’t it. This is the lil’ one in our stable. Enjoy it for what it is and for what it’s not.

I will always tick a stone beer same way I will always tick a Sierra Nevada or allagash. Creamy smooth milk chocolate. Coffee is mild. A little bitter on the finish. That’s where the coffee is coming in. Solid top to bottom.

In der Nase Kaffee, deutlicher aber Schokolade. Im Trunk sehr mild, fast wässrig, Röstmalz, angebrannter Kaffee, leichte Süße. Ich meine auch etwas Zitrone wahrnehmen zu können. Durchschnitt.

puren (1213) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 20, 2017
PREZENTACJA: czarne z niską, syczącą pianą, która od razu opada do obrączki;
AROMAT: delikatny - paloność, laktoza, orzechy laskowe, torf(?) ;
ODCZUCIE: ciało średnie, średnio nasycone, gładkie ;
SMAK: kawowa paloność przechodzi w gorzką czekoladę z orzechami laskowymi później w czekoladę mleczną a dalej w delikatną kawę ze śmietanką, goryczka przewija się przez te wszystkie wszystkie etapy, ale jest śladowa;
OGÓLNIE: przyjemny MS z lekką tylko słodyczą; nic nadzwyczajnego, ale bardzo spodobało mi się to gładkie przejście między kolejnymi nutami w smaku.

Schnabelhund (108) - TAIWAN - AUG 19, 2017
Stone Coffee Milk Stout pours a black color with a beautiful small brown head. The nose is dominated by fragrant roasted malts, coffee, and cacao, backed by hints of vanilla and savory notes. The attack has a dry caramel character before the roast bitterness gradually increases on the mid-palate along with its coffee, cacao, grass, and nutty notes and only a slight hint of vegetables. The finish is quite dry and bitter to mouth and brings dark bread crust to mind. The strong flavors weighed against its light body and quite watery mouthfeel throws the overall experience a little off balance, but not so much as to make this brew anything less than good.

PietS (370) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2017
Sweet creamy, roasted malts, a little coffee/chocolate bitter; a soft but full body. Good stout, but doesn’t stand out.

3.3
Borresteijn (7415) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2017
On tap at Planet Oedipus. Black colour, beige head. Aroma of coffee and cream, milky, quite sweet. Flavour is less sweet, quite dry, chocolate, coffee, cream, bitter finish. Light bodied. Decent.
