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.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 3, 2014
Black pour with a 1 finger, creamy mocha head that has excellent retention and leaves great lacing. Every sip brings a new cascade of lacing streaking downward from the point where my lip met the glass. Aroma is loaded with roast, chocolate, toast and lactose, then some dark caramel, toffee nuts, earthy and woody notes and a little booziness. Flavor is mocha sweetened with lactose, toffee, roast, a little char, earth, old campfire wood, light earthy notes, and light fruity and floral notes toward the finish. Medium to heavy body, creamy entry, chewy middle, light, blanketing and mildly sharp carbonation, syrupy, but chalky finish. There is a lingering feeling of sharp carbonation on the tongue that is very strange. Good stuff overall, I do dig Lacto Stouts in general and this has lots of components to make it awesome, but just enough throwing it off to make it just "good". Okay, maybe "really good". While I liked this beer quite a bit it is a terrible value. I paid $6.50/355ml (or maybe 330ml?) bottle. There are better stouts to be had for a little more than that price for six times the volume. That assertion doesn’t affect my score, but it is worth noting.

stoigniew (119) - Łęczna, POLAND - JAN 12, 2017
W aromacie wytrawne, chmielowe, czekoladowe, lekko prażone, kawowe. W smaku również sporo kawy i czekolady, chmielowa wytrawność na kształt black IPA robi wrażenie świeżości i rześkości. Laktozy nigdy nie umiałem ’wyłowić’ w milk stoucie. Piwo jest bardzo piernikowe ale nie dosłownie. Wytrawne - piernikowe. Palony słód mocno wyczuwalny. Goryczka przyjemna średnia, lekko kwaskowe, słodkawe na końcu co doceniam. Piana którą zwykle olewam zwraca na siebie uwagę - jest gęsta trwała i czekoladowa - a taką mają piwa staranne. Nie jest to mój styl ale z drugiej strony nie spodziewałem się że da się z milk stoutu wykręcić taki numer. Alkohol oczywiście niewyczuwalny, jedynie pijalność jak na mój gust słaba.

Looks great, beautiful head. Aroma is a lot of sweet milk chocolate, some dark fruit and unfortunately some soy sauce (quite strong at the beggining, gets weaker as beer gets warmer). Taste is really nice, quite sweet obviously. The beer is not thicc enough tho.

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans nos petits verres Duvel 18cl: Jolie robe ébène avec une belle mousse couleur café assez persistante et une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre un mélange d’arômes très riches et agréables avec des notes houblonnées et chocolatées.La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs à l’image du nez avec des pointes d’agrumes et une bonne amertume en finale.Un très bon stout avec cet équilibre parfait entre douceur et amertume! 17,5/20

appiantiqua (132) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 24, 2016
Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre Duvel 18cl. Température de début 9° environ. Magnifique robe ébène surmontée d’une belle mousse couleur café assez persistante;bonne carbonatation. Nez particulièrement agréable : arômes chocolatés et houblonnés. Le goût est du même niveau avec des saveurs fruitées et de café torréfié le tout dans un parfait équilibre douceur/amertume. On note une astringence bienvenue. La finale très longue et sur l’amertume est tout aussi plaisante. Un stout soyeux très réussi qui évoque aussi les meilleures IPA. 17,5/20

Welp, this is crazy stupid good. By Udder Means sports a lame pun for a name and a whole lot of lactose. Black pour. Aroma has cream, milk chocolate, and roasted barley. It tastes like chocolate with a bit of espresso. Rich creamy feel. This brew feels much larger than the relatively modest 7%. This beer’s got a sweet tooth but still has lots of class, too.

Draft. A- Chocolate ice cream. A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Chocolate, mild bitterness, slightly roasty. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish. O- Amazing aroma that doesn’t quite translate into the palate. Almost like liquid ice cream.

McCuaig (3) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2016 does not count
Big tan head. Nice aroma of coffee and roasty malt. I didn’t find it that sweet considering its a milk stout. There is an initial sweet hit followed by a lasting taste of dark chocolate, nuts, quite dry with a bitterness. Could do with being a touch sweeter to balance it out but tasty stuff none the less.

Bottle. Black in colour, big head. Aroma of dark malts, some roastiness and lactose. In taste sweet with coffee, quite simple. Medium body, high level of carbonation, finish is sweet.
