But why is called a 'Milk Stout'? The addition of a non-fermenting lactose sugar to the beer gives a silky sweet taste which enhances the chocolate notes, and compliments the light bitterness from the coffee. Finally, the addition of whole vanilla pods late in the process adds an extra level of flavour.
The best way to get the flavour of the coffee in, without clogging up the brew kit, is in tights!
Looks strange I know, but it works! The tights of coffee are left in the underback for a few minutes each to get the perfect amount of flavour out.

Mocha Milk Stout will be available in cask from the 21st of July, and in keg a few weeks after. We currently have some bottles in stock, so come down to the brewery shop and grab some, only £2.50 each. Dark beers aren't just for winter.
