A full-bodied stout with a velvety mouthfeel. Bursting with aromas of roasted malt and chocolate. A hint of smokiness. Our Milk Stout combines a 250-year commitment to brewing dark beers with a determination to never stop innovating.
Marrying the deep roast characteristics of Guinness Draught with lactose sugar results in a unique stout with a subtle sweetness. Slight hints of caramel toffee are balanced by a subtle bitterness. Distinctly complex and best enjoyed in the company of an old friend.
Man, they are good with words! It's almost as if Mills and Boon wrote the advertising copy, A full-bodied stout with a velvety mouthfeel. Bursting with aromas of roasted malt and chocolate! Beer? That sounds like my perfect woman!!
Guinness Milk Stout. Say again, Milk Stout? It shows the power of the Guinness name and brand that I didn't walk right by this bottle, it doesn't exactly sound appealing to the palate. However Ignoring a new bottle of booze from Arthur would be considered a crime in these parts, so out of respect I picked up a few bottles on a 4 for £6 deal. The Brewers Projects latest beer is the modern take (If you consider 1875 modern)on aged beers and porter, its fresher, lighter and has one hell of a zing to it
Pouring deathly black with little head that moves on quickly this hits the nose like a lighter version of Guinness Stout. It's unmistakably Arthur and tastes like a fresher carbonated version of the famous black stuff. The initial aftertaste isn't great to be fair.. fizzy, almost like a soda.. Like a cold cola with an ABV. A 500ml bottle at 5% isn't slow to remind you that's its a alcohol infused child of the Open Gate Brewery and while it becomes more palatable through familiarity, this isn't one I would buy again.
The Great Guinness taste and scent is there, its a little too fresh and sparkly for me.
