Double Chocolate Milk Stout by Southern Prohibition Brewing is a Chocolate Milk Stout and was judged as a Sweet Stout (BJCP sub-style 16A). It poured dark brown and opaque into the glass where it quickly displayed a thick, creamy and lasting tan head. Its aroma resembled that of a chocolate milkshake, i.e. intense chocolate and lactose, followed by some roasty dark grain notes. The flavor profile also began with a blast of sweetness but also bitter chocolate. The sweetness was pleasant, not cloying, and the hops served as a bittering balance together with the dark chocolate in the background rather than as a flavor contributor. The mouthfeel featured a smooth, full-ish body, moderate carbonation and creaminess, but neither alcohol warmth nor astringency were present. Overall, due to its pleasant flavor and balance, lower alcohol content, and the brewer’s ability to keep all of the flavor elements working harmoniously, this beer exhibited very high drinkability for such a sweet, dessert-destined brew.
