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 doesnt 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 (2351) - 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 doesnt affect my score, but it is worth noting.

Butelka. Piana obfita, kawowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, opada bardzo powoli do cienkiej warstwy na powierzchni całego piwa, ładnie koronkuje. Barwa czarna. Aromat intensywny, słodki, mleczna czekolada, lekka kawa. Goryczka niska. W smaku kawa zbożowa (inka), czekolada do picia, lekka kwaśność od palonych słodw, lekka paloność. Gładkie w teksturze. Pełnia średnia plus, nasycenie niskie.

kindly shared by impuritylaw, thanks a lot. A doughy heaven of half-baked Marmorkuchen dunked into slightly sour/acrid coffee. Superb mouthfeel. Serves as a dessert.

MelvinKalksma (1409) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, lactose, chocolate, mocha and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Opaque dark brown/black beer with medium yeast and with a medium/large brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, lactose, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. That added lactose manages to never be too dominant. Together with the loads of roasted malts, there is a great chocooate and mocha present in this beer.

Zajebiste, na serio pyszne piwko. Pachnie super, najbardziej czuję gorzką czekoladę i kawę, niestety też zostawia gorzki posmak na języku :/ a liczylam na spotkanie ze słodyczką, ale oglnie nie jest gorzkie. Zdecydowanie polecam nie tylko fanatykom milk stoutw
