Outland Milk Stout on beach 22nd April 2024

In the beer world, the term “milk stout” often piques curiosity and leaves many wondering about its composition and flavour profile.


Milk stout, also known as sweet stout or cream stout, is a style of beer renowned for its rich, creamy texture and sweet undertones, owing much of its character to the addition of lactose during the brewing process. Among the breweries experimenting with this style, the Badger Brewery stands out with its acclaimed creation, Outland’s Milk Stout.


What is a Milk Stout?

Milk stout derives its name from the inclusion of lactose, a sugar derived from milk, in its recipe. Unlike other beer styles, which ferment out nearly all the sugars present, lactose remains unfermented by beer yeast. This lends milk stout its characteristic sweetness and full-bodied mouthfeel. Typically, milk stouts feature roasted malts, providing a foundation of deep, dark flavours reminiscent of coffee and chocolate, balanced by the smoothness imparted by lactose.
