BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
neshaminycreekbrewing.com

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Winter stout offering is brewed with a hefty amount of 2-Row barley, as well as Victory, Munich, and Carapils malt. We round it out with some lactose sugar and flaked oats for sweetness and body. While the hops in this beer certainly don’t play a central role, we balance all that malt with a good dose of East Kent Goldings, Fuggles, and Wilamette hops.

This Milk Stout is the King of Milk Stouts. Thankfully, NCBC made it available in bottles today. Pours a deep brown-black with billowing head that slowly subsides with generous lacing. The taste is perfection with sweet dark chocolate, expresso and roasted malt bitters. As dark or darker and more opaque than any irish stout I have had. Feels and looks like a nitro brew, much more so than Left Hand which was my previous favorite. The hops are in perfect balance and only serve to enrich the complexity.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown color close to black with a finger’s worth of off white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Messy lace. The aroma seemed to blend the roast to the sweet; coffee bean to cocoa bean. Lactose seems to be just an underscore to it. The flavor, once again seems to blend nice and refined with the sweetness of the lactose just there but not burdensome. Smooth sweet to roasty aftertaste rolling into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a smooth silkiness on my tongue. Mild carbonation. ABV felt fine. Overall, to me at least, I thought this balanced in way more roast than expected for the style, but I think I enjoyed that more than the usual suspects of this style.

4/13...pours very dark black, very thin layer of modestly off white foam. Dark malt nose, hints of coffee. Some dark chocolate. Creamy milky chocolate stout, light bitter. Soft mouthfeel, can taste the lactose influence. Not overly sweet though, really well balanced.

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar; upon closer inspection the corners of the glass have hues of brownish red when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a half finger high tan head that gradually died down, leaving lacing on the surface and down the sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lactose are present in the nose along with notes of chocolate and roasted malts.
T: The initial taste has a burst of lactose flavors with notes of chocolate malts. Hints of dry, roasted malts start to creep in towards the finish along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with bits of smoothness from the lactose and dryness from the roasted malts.
O: This beer doesn't seem to be as sweet as many of the other beers in the style, but the lactose does offer interesting contrasts to the roasted malts in the smell, taste and mouthfeel. It is quite easy to drink.
