If you enjoyed our milk stout with a shot of Broomwagon cold brewed coffee in it, try this new brew. Our take on this classic style has big roasted barley flavor on the front end and balanced sweetness on the backend. Milk stout, sometimes called ‘cream’ or ‘sweet’ stout, is a stout containing lactose, a sugar derived from milk. Lactose is unfermentable by beer yeast, so it adds sweetness and body to the finished beer. In the early 1900s milk stouts were considered nutritious and recommended to expecting and nursing mothers.
