For Lovers of Rich and Creamy Milk Stout

Are you a beer lover on the hunt for a rich and creamy Milk Stout?

This style of beer has been around for ages and is gaining popularity, especially among craft beer fans. Milk Stout is a full-bodied beer with a dark color that gets its velvety smooth body from lactose sugar - a non-fermentable sugar made from milk. This sugar adds a unique sweetness and creaminess to the beer, making it a perfect dessert beer or just a treat whenever you feel like it.

History Of The Milk Stout

Milk stouts were a subtype of the "nourishing stout" category that flourished in Great Britain at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. Interestingly they were backed by doctors who recommended them as a restorative. They were variously called "nursing stouts" (recommended for nursing mothers), "ladies' stout," and even "invalids' stout." These beers quickly became popular among everyone thanks to their delicious taste and satisfying mouthfeel. Our local brewery created our own, Night Cap Milk Stout. With a rich, chocolatey flavour present in the aromatics that will follow you from the first sip to the last. This brew has a velvety smooth body that you can thank lactose sugar for. But a subtle bitterness from the roasted grains and hops balances out the sweetness for a finish that will leave you satisfied. For the ultimate drinking experience, we recommend serving Night Cap Milk Stout slightly warmer than your average beer. This will give the flavours a chance to fully develop and provide you with an unforgettable drinking experience. If you're a beer lover looking for something different and delicious, give Milk Stout a try. Night Cap Milk Stout is our take on this classic style, and we think you'll love it.
