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.

A - A very full bodied looking with a deep dark black and a 1/2 inch of mocha head that pulls back to just a mild lace ring. No sticky lacing.
S - Some milk sugars and chocolate highlighting with some roasted malts but it seems to have a hoppy edge even for only 20 ibu's
T - Not a bad milk stout maybe a touch more metallic and less "sweet" than they described. Sweet chocolate malts, then acidic roasted malts, and a sugary malt finish is what you get. Has some harsh hard water undertones I can't ignore.
M - Medium bodied, with only mild creaminess.
Overall only having one of their brews I find this hard to believe it's as sweet as they say. Also it could use more body and maybe a touch creamier rather than hard water edge. These guys should re-make their recipe.

A: Hersey chocolate pour, with a bronze-twany topping that displayed a length retention. Really love the head coloring here as well a nice lenghty topping display. Milky frothy lacing.

S: Dark chocolate, semi-sweet, fresh coffee beans with a hint of sweet lactose and creamer and decent level of awareness.

T: Flavor of sweet chocoalte and lactose. Caramel, a bit dry in the middle but sweet with some dry cocoa rounding things out.

M: Creamy near full body with a good tingle of carbonation and a lengthy fade of dry alcohol and chocolate.

O: Overall decent, dry and sweet, comes in middle of the road per style for me, but it probably wont make you regret a single purchase. Easy drinking, dessert beer.
