COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We bring to you an black thick milk stout called By Udder Means. We wanted to do a stout, that had a thick mouth feel and still a low alcohol percentage. We obtained this by adding a solid amount of lactose in the beer. The yeast strain we used is not capable of fermenting lactose, so when the beer stops fermenting all lactose still remains in the beer. At the same time lactose doesn’t leave this sweet touch to the beer, so you can obtain a thick mouth feel without having an overly sweet or overly strong stout. We hope you enjoy.

Smells like porter and peaches. Pitch black tiny off-white head. Taste of goose berries, peach and a lot of hops. Very thin, without the depht you expect from a stout.

MrTipple (4968) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Dark chocolate, cacao, dark roast filter coffee, slightly charred, dark malts, old leather. Hazy, dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Light bitter and sweet. More chocolate, burnt molasses, charcoal, dark, burnt malts, soft carbonation, full bodied. Nice Sweet Stout, aroma maybe not quite as balanced as one would wish, nice palate though. Keg at The Bottle Shop, Bermondsey.

colui72 (1026) - HONG KONG - MAY 27, 2017
Black, with a large tan head, sediments and circular lacing. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Complex taste, with the lactose that adds sweetness without overdoing, and a very nice thick mouthfeel. Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate are there, and so some mild hoppy bitterness. As I said full, bodied with thick mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and long finish, with all its flavours lingering. Bloody good sweet stout!

great beer pours into a great dark body with a large expansive toffee colored head. aroma like many milk stouts ive had before isn’t too strong but thats definitely made up for later in the beer. when sipping you almost have to fight your way past the thick head to get to the body of the beer, the flavour bursts from the head giving a good sweet and dark chocolate bitterness.

bjorn77 (426) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 11, 2017
Aromat: czekolada, rodzynki, szlachetne suszone owoce, wanilia, toffi, karmel. Aromat bardzo przyjemny. Wygląd: Ciemnobrązowe, prawie czarne, ponad dwu centymetrowa, beżowa, bardzo ładna warstwa drobnopęcherzykowej piany, długo utrzymuje się na powierzchni piwa. Smak: czekolada, pralinki, trochę kawy i paloności, kakao, laktozowa słodycz wyraźna, goryczka mocna, piwo jak na styl wytrawne, nie jest bardzo słodkie, a goryczka jest naprawdę mocna i zalega. Przyjemne likierowe odczucie w ustach, finisz lekko cierpki, alkohol ukryty, dużo ciała, gładkie, aksamitne, tylko może wysycenie ciut za duże. Wszystko jest tu bardzo dobrze wyważone, balans przesunięty lekko w stronę wytrawności. Pijalne i bardzo smaczne piwo.

anstei (2248) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 27, 2017
UPDATED: APR 27, 2017 Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours black with a beige foam. Aroma is sweet liquorice, intense dark dried fruit, motor oil. Body is medium, strong liquorice again, quite bitter, good sweetness, soft carbonation, lactose, thick. Lingering liquorice as well, and dark fruit. Not my type of beer, but it?s not bad.

Echon (535) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 26, 2017
Black. Rich, roasted malt profile, with notes of spice. Sweet, full taste that ends with a dry and solidly bitter finish. Full body, and a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a great milk stout. Rich, tasty and smooth like velvet.
