Brewed by:
Lake Placid Craft Brewing Company
New York, United States

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

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.

Poored from 12 oz bottle. Very dark, almost black, pour. Head maintained throughout the duration and had a nice foaminess that presented the smell and flavor well. Very chocolatey and coffee flavor that was not overpowering as many other milk stouts. No bitter aftertaste that lingers well after the drink which is very pleasant. Recommend highly if you like sweet stouts, but it is not one I would sit and drink a lot of in one sitting, but a very pleasant desert style beer.
