North Brewing Belgian Milk Stout-1

At first, Halifax’s North Brewing Belgian Milk Stout tastes like a fortified wine (with the nose of a Cabernet Sauvignon), followed by sweet molasses, with mellow chocolate and coffee flavours to round it out.

We enjoyed the creamy texture of this one, a stout with a toasty quality to match its mild bitterness.

Brewed with 2-Row, Roasted Barley, Chocolate and De-bittered Chocolate malts, lactose (milk sugar) is added to get that sweet character (lactose is not fermentable by most yeasts). Northern Brewer hops were used for bittering, a light dose of Willamette was used late in the boil for aroma, and a Belgian Stout yeast strain was used in the fermentation stage.

This Belgian Milk Stout would pair nicely with a range of dishes, from stews to cured meats.
