Milk / Sweet Stout |  4.90% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is our version of a milk stout, originally named Fresh Powder Milk Stout. A milk stout is simply a stout brewed with an addition of Lactose, a non-fermentable milk sugar, used to create sweetness and a fuller body and mouthfeel in the beer. This is the sweetest stout that we brew, not only because of the addition of lactose, but because of the low hop bitterness, and higher residual sugar content. It is very full bodied beer, often perceived as thick and creamy.

3.9/5  rDev +11.7%

Appearance: Dark, dark, dark brown, almost pitch black, but there is a thin layer of brown light at the edges of the glass. There is almost not foam or lacing.

Smell: Malted milk ball and chalky chocolate. Very clean.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Flavor is highly malted. Biscuit, chocolate, and plenty of molasses or malt syrup. Mouthfeel is extremely crisp with a great light-medium body. Very bubbly with a smoky finish.

Overall Drinkability: Not a world-class stout, but a very refreshing and above average one.
