Historically, a sweet stout is known as a 'milk' stout, with it's name coming from it's use of lactose (milk sugar) in the recipe. This adds to the beer's sweetness, and will give you a rich, full-bodied, roasted dark beer. Our recipe is our own take on a classic recipe, and will give you a rich, full-bodied Milk Stout that's richly flavored with hints of chocolate and caramel with a rich finish. You can't go wrong with this one, give it a try, we think you'll love it!

This was the first kit that I had ordered from Homebrew Supply and I was impressed with how fresh and hand picked all the ingredients were packaged. The brew itself has a sweet and smooth flavor profile and is perfect for an easy sipper due to the lower ABV. I needed something light and easy to drink in my keezer and this fit the bill!
Received my shipment in no time. Everything was great and I can't wait to taste. Great experience and awesome service. I will be ordering again and again. Thanks Home Brew!!
