COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Milk Stouts are brewed with sugar from cows milk to give the beer a sweet, creamy tone. Bristol breweries were once famous for making the best milk stouts around. For our take on the traditional recipe weve used copious amounts of chocolate malts and laced it with vanilla to create a milkshake rich, velvety and satisfying dark beer.

MALTS Maris Otter Pale, Chocolate, Crystal, Roast Barley, Torrefied Wheat.

Pours black with a ring of tan head and an oily film. Prominent chocolate aroma. Has a fabulous texture---sort of silky and fluffy. Not all that much aroma, but hey, thats forgivable given how great the rest of it is.

sarauckelman (508) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2017
Thick dark brown with no head. Rich malty aroma. Sweet, creamy flavor and mouthfeel, light and fluffy like whipped cream, with undertones of chocolate and coffee. Sweet without the cloyingness that lactose often has. This is outstanding.

This is a really excellent stout. Its not quite Safe as Milk but it is really good. Its easy to drink. its almost mellow on the mouth but its far from tasteless. I could taste the chocolate and sweetness through it. really lovely.

Faint aroma of coffee and bread Sweet, next to no bitterness. Light flavor of coffee, milky sweetness, caramel. Watery. Decent, but definitely nothing special

ianwelby (1301) - SCOTLAND - JAN 13, 2017
At Hippo Tap Room. Black beer, thin brown head. Hefty aroma of chocolate malt. Taste is rich malt, creamy chocolate, light vanilla. Very mellow but its rich and sweet. Very pleasant and because its not sickly for all the sweetness (certainly when slightly chilled as mine was) you could probably happily spend a night on it.

Batch 24. Malts: Golden Promise, Chocolate, DRC, Roasted Barley, Flaked Malted Oats, Wheat. Yeast: Surebrew YS020. Hop: Mount Hood. Bottle from Bierkoning. Aroma is dark malt, powdery milk chocolate, vanilla, creamy milky lactose, cocoa, oats, nutty notes, hint of roast. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is thin, fairly watery, with some milky creaminess and low carbonation. Some nice flavours in there, but a bit too watery for my taste.
