BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Lake Placid Craft Brewing Company

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.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a dark brown with a 1 finger light khaki head. Head is a thin film after a minute or two, doesnt leave much lacing.

S: Sweet lactose and chocolate malts really highlight the aroma. There is some dark fruitiness in the background as well.

T: Has a roasty chocolate malt combined with the sweetness of the lactose. Hops are suppressed. Some coffee notes too.

M: Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Pretty dry and refreshing, very drinkable.

Overall I'm impressed with this new bottle from Lake Placid. Great for the winter time.
