Five Barrel Brewing
Five Barrel Milk Stout
Brewery: Five Barrel
Format: 330ml Bottle
Milk Stouts contain the non-fermentable lactose sugar to add a velvety smooth body to a rich roasty beer. These are the original dessert beers, and are a perfect way to cap off a meal or just enjoy whenever you please.
The rich chocolatey flavour is apparent in the aromatics and follow through to your last sip. A velvety smooth body is sweet, but a subtle bitterness from the roasted grains and the hops help balance it out to finish well.
Enjoy a little warmer and observe how the flavours develop.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Full Flavoured, Good *strong* dark stout
From the first mouthful to the last sip, this Stout engages you. The *roast* part of the dark flavor is almost smoky, there's a real depth to the other hints of flavours, but it's not too bitter, not too sweet (even though it's a milk stout) and the cocoa bitterness is very subtle. At an alcohol content of 6% it weighs in heavily and packs a punch, but goes down smoothly. A special Stout indeed.
