Milk Stout is a variety of Stout which is characterized by a sweeter taste, due to the addition of lactose during boil. Lactose is milk sugar and acts as a sweetener. It is indigestible by our yeast so it remains in the finished product giving it a pleasing sweet finish.
Stouts have an enduring tradition of giving strength, possessing nutritive and healing powers and, in bygone years, were prescribed by doctors for alleviating a myriad of ailments. Milk Stouts have been a brand in England since the late 1700’s. Traditional English Sweet Stouts, also referred to as Milk or Cream Stouts, have the addition of lactose or whey in their recipes.
This is a new seasonal here at the Brew Pub and has a ABV of 5%. Milk Stouts are a very rare style of beer brewed by a handful of brewers around the world today. This seasonal brew was named after the birth of our GABF award-winning brewmaster’s first grandson, Steven Jacob Dwyer, born November 3, 2005.
