Notes: Double Milk Stout

Ever wondered what your favorite stout would taste like if it was wearing silk pajamas? Well the wait is over, Mom Jeans was brewed with malted oats and lactose sugar to insure a creamy, sumptuous, saxually mouth coating flavor. Notes of malted milk chocolate & coffee are delivered as smoothly as if Toto was jamming "Rosanna" in your mouth.

4.41/5  rDev +7%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: One of the darkest beers I've ever seen -- oily black. Large medium-brown head.

Smell: Sweet dark malt, coffee grounds, piney hops. Pleasant.

Taste: Yummy. Dark roasty coffee that leads but is not overpowering -- accompanied by some malt sweetness and a bit of lactose. Pretty well balanced, maybe on the bitter end for some. The flavor doesn't linger, making it surprisingly sessionable.

Feel: Creamy and sugary. Slightly dry finish from the coffee.

Overall: Very well done. A great example of the style.

4.17/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear thick viscous jet black in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising slowly along the edges of the glass and faint dark coal brown + dark chestnut brown + dark garnet red colored highlights. The beer has a four finger tall dense fizzy sudsy foamy dark mocha head that slowly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of thin film covering a little more than 45% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of roasted + chocolate + oat + toasted + caramel malts with a slightly heavier than moderate amount of lactose sweetness. Moderate aromas of milk chocolate + coffee and just a hint of earthy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of roasted + chocolate + oat + toasted + caramel malts with a slightly heavier than moderate amount of lactose sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of milk chocolate + malted milk balls + coffee as well as a hint of vanilla. Finally there are hints of earthy hops. Light to moderate amounts of roasty bitterness which are quickly overtaken by the lingering lactose sweetness.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth, almost creamy.

O: Drinks quite easily considering the sweetness + strength/ABV and the alcohol is well hidden. Very enjoyable and the flavors/aromas of the chocolate + coffee + malts + lactose come together quite nicely.

Exactly how you want a double milk stout to look...black at night with beautiful chocolate lacing.
The vanilla overwhelms the coffee in the smell and taste. Much more of a sweet swell than bitter coffee.
Same with the taste. The coffee is very subtle. Strong stout flavor on the way in and vanilla on the exhale.
Really smooth. Really great stout. I can't wait to have another.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 16oz tall can into my BeerAdvocate teku.

Appearance: completely opaque rich dark black-brown hue with a thick finger of frothy but compact brown foam atop. I'm a sucker for a beer like this; it's beautiful.

Smell: quite sweet, but with a very nice roasty aroma. There's plenty of coffee in the mix, along with a nice little shot of vanilla. It's good, and you know, it's pretty much what it says on the tin -- coffee & vanilla.

Taste: deeply malty, with a good roast. The coffee comes through very well, in a nicely balanced fashion. The vanilla is more subdued, and I appreciate it. Additionally, the malt has just a hint of some dusty, dark, date & tobacco flavors, which I absolutely love in a dark beer. So -- kudos! It's darn good!

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation; it's very creamy and very nearly silky smooth. Great.

Overall: this beer really appeals to me on a lot of levels. It's got the good complexity that a quad or imperial stout should have, and it's not even quite imperial strength (as stouts go, anyway). A well-crafted treat.

16oz can. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a very large, brown head of bubbly foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass. It smelled of rich, milk chocolate, vanilla and light roasted coffee. Sweet chocolate taste with a balance of vanilla and coffee.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a deep, dark brown color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, tan-colored head that lasts an average amount of time. Not much lacing, though.

S: A pretty good, but not spectacular, aroma of chocolate, cream, roasted malt, coffee, and lactose.

T: Tasted of a bit of cream (a nicely subtle presence), some milk chocolate (sweet, but could've used more), a little lactose (more than expected), a bit of coffee (less than expected), and a lot of roasted malt (present throughout). This is a solid flavor, but it needs a bit more oomph in its ingredients. Not bad, though.

F: A below average amount of carbonation with a smooth, dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An uneven, but still likable, beer. Worth a try.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that gradually died down, leaving a thin collar around the edge of the glass and some delicate lacing on the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of dark and chocolate malts are present in the nose along with notes of coffee.
T: The taste has flavors of dark chocolate malts with notes of lactose and hints of coffee. The hops contribute a faint amount of bitterness but mostly serve to balance the sweetness of the malts and lactose.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked the silky smooth mouthfeel of this beer and all of the chocolatey and lactose flavors. It is quite drinkable because no traces of alcohol are perceptible in the taste.

16 ounce can, canned on 11/11/2019, big thanks to Brutaltruth for this! Served in a Hoof Hearted Teku, the beer pours dark brown/black with a huge tan head that took a while to settle down. Good amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and roasted malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some cream and burnt/charred malt flavors too. It's a tasty sweeter stout that has a good amount of coffee too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. Definitely worth trying this, I know I'd like to drink this one again in the future!

From the tall boy can in a snifter. This beast pours a dark coal
black with a fantastic head of tan foam that lingers longs leaving
nice lacing on a fat one inch layer of head. Nose of cocoa, char,
cream, roast, and coffee. Flavors follow but surpass by presentation
with cocoa, char, cream, coffee, and deep roast. Nice mouth feel;
full body, smooth, medium carbonation giving nice lift, lightly
coating, and finishing a hint dry.

Overall---wow...a milk stout that is worthy.

Cheers

A - Dark brown and borderline black in color with a dense creamy layer of foam that's light caramel in color. The foam is very sticky on the sides of the glass.

S - Deep toasted cocoa and cream aroma. Nice overall roasty aroma.

T - Deep roasty char from start to finish with a touch of mild char and cream presence throughout. Balanced finish that sways towards the sweeter side.

M - Chewy, creamy, and silky on the tongue.

O - This is a very good Double Milk Stout ... recommended.

16oz can.

Pours opaque dark brown with mahogany edgework. Minimal retention or lacing. Cocoa and Oreo shells in the nose with coffee beans and a hint of vanilla. On the fuller side of medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Bakers chocolate and espresso-drizzled fudge on the palate. Finishes with vanilla, roast, and dark chocolate.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours black with two fingers of khaki foam. Head retention is good. Aroma is dark roasty, toasty malts cut thin by lactose and milk chocolate. Almost smells like a glass of Ovaltine mixed into 2% milk. A dash of medium-roast coffee adds a touch of bitterness, but otherwise folds in well with the malts and lactose and chocolate. Flavor profile is lactose, milk chocolate, toffee, medium-roast coffee - lightly charred and bitter - and roasty, toasty malts. Coffee is the only deviation that keeps this from drinking like a glass of chocolate milk. Mouth feel is akin to 1% milk, which is to say somewhat thick and velvety, but still only medium-thin. Overall, a good blend of flavors, but the medium-thin consistency contradicts the 8% ABV stout.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 16oz can.

Holy moly, this right here is everything I like about stouts and nothing I don’t like.
It is so good.
If you are looking for hard hops and cigar ash like most the imperial stouts go you best go elsewhere but if you are looking for smooth and sweet toasty malt this is your ticket!

What a bummer DurrAdvocate doesn't have a picture of the can art. Its hilarious. Mom with a "can I speak to the manager" haircut in mom jeans and all. Yes, I am going to count that in the "look" category. Aside from that, it pours dark brown with a rich 2/3" lighter brown head. Nice coffee aromatics going on in this one.

Taste took on a much sweeter vibe than it did in the nose. The lactose is apparent but not so deep that it makes the beer too sweet. Sweet enough to keep the roasted malt from having too bitter of a presence and the alcohol from being obstructionist to the enjoyment of said beer. Teaming up on team smooov is the oats which also make for a lighter and thinner body. This seems like a crowd pleaser, easy enough to drink for people who think they don't like stouts, but actually good enough for people who do.

Instead of looking for the biggest baddest Chicago pour of a stout that is impossible to drink all by yourself, check this beer out, you can crush a pint by yourself no problem.

Poured from a growler filled at the brewery.

Pours an opaque black with a 2-finger creamy caramel head that dissipates into a nice film. Leaves a beautiful crown of lacing. Gorgeous looking stout.

The aroma brings tons of sweet milk chocolate and dark roasted malts. There's a very subtle amount of brown sugar as well.

The taste starts with roasted dark malts. Gives off a bit of a charred character. Then follows a wave of sweet milk chocolate and subtle vanilla. Finishes with an extremely subtle hop bite. Not the most mindblowing or original flavor profile but it is totes delish.

The feel is medium bodied with lighter carbonation. Lighter in body but creamy as hell and smoother than Baby's Butt Stout by the brewers who brought you Pedy Topper. I'm not funny.

Anyway, this is a fantastic stout. I'm surprised it isn't rated higher. Sure it's straightforward for the style but what it does do is excellent.

On tap at the brewpub. Look is black and opaque. Smell is roasty malts and a sharp acrid note I can't place but is not pleasant. Reminds me a bit of wet dog I think. Taste is more roasted malts, some chocolate, slight bitterness at the edges. Feel is quite thin fort a double milk stout. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall a miss for me

32 ounce growler
Served in a snifter

This beer pours black and thick as motor oil. A timid pour yielded less than an inch of mocha head that leaves very little lacing.

It gives off a milk chocolate and roasted malt aroma.

It tastes sweet. Flavors of milk chocolate with hints of roasted malt prevail.

Full, rich, creamy mouthfeel

I had this beer on tap once and loved it. I got this growler at the Kitchen and Brewpub, and I am not quite as enamored with it. It is good but not as I recall.

Blackish brown with a brown head that settles to a thin ring.

HUGE brown sugar notes up front on the nose as well as the taste.

Caramel and roastiness comes through shortly after.

Mom Jeans is really sweet, but attributes of dry, dark cocoa powder provide a little bitterness, but this is not balanced.

If you don't like sweet beers, you will probably gag at this. I, on the other hand, loved it.

Mom jeans enjoyed October 3, 2015 at Hoof Hearted.

Look - Dark brown with reddish tint. Finger of tan head with fine bubbles. Blotchy lacing.

Smell - Chocolate. Char. Burnt coffee. Catty.

Taste - Bitter coffee. Chocolate.

Feel - Heavy. Smooth. Milky.

Overall - A lot more bitter than I hoped for. Looks tasty and feels great going down.

Love the name and artwork. I had a sample of the beer at the ohio tap room. The beer pours very dark with little carbonation. The mouthfeel seems a touch light for a stout, but, overall, the taste was good...a touch of caramel with a malty finish.
