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.

3.91/5  rDev +12%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a massive light mocha head with sticky lacing and spiderwebs the entire way down.

S: Aroma of bittersweet chocolate, lactose, black malt.

T: Very well rounded milk stout. I was completely amazed when looking on here at what the abv was as it was so flavorful. For a milk stout, this has done very good in terms of flavor. Light chocolate malt flavors, patent and chalk flavors from the lactose and a dry finish. Not much hopping in here intentionally and it is additionally sweet because of this.

M: Dry and well carbonated.

O: Overall this is a very good milk / sweet stout. It is not a high octane beer and it is extremely drinkable. I would love to have this available locally as it could be a regular in the rotation because of the low abv and enjoyable taste profiles... Recommended
