Lacto Milk Stout is a Milk Stout brewed by Simonds Farsons Cisk Plc., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a nonic pint glass from on tap.
The ale pours a clear black with just a hint of ruby highlights showing through. It’s topped by a finger-thick cap of dense tan-colored foam that shows modest retention. A thin film and collar of residue coats the top of the ale.
Its aroma is faint with a scent of dark fruit.
The palate begins with a slightly metallic tinged dark fruit that transitions to flavors of lemon tea and soy sauce. A thin base of lightly toasted malt ties the palate together.
Its feel has a smooth draw that becomes somewhat grainy on the backend. It has a medium-light body and moderate carbonation.
The Lacto Milk Stout lacks the depth of better representatives of the style. And considering its low ABV and lack of body, it’s not too surprising that its palate lacks some punch. But this brew is an easy drinker, and with few dark beer options available on Malta, this stout might be an option.
