Notes/Commercial Description:
Brian Gallagher, a brewer who learned the art of fermentation in the UK, used the beer you now hold, a New World take on a traditional Enlgish milk stout, as his vehicle for personal expression.

Though Stone Brewing Co. is well known for massive stouts such as the venerable Stone Imperial Russian Stout (10.6% abv) and the more recent collaborative w00tstouts (13%-13.5% abv), at a mere 4.2% abv Stone Coffee Milk Stout presents a walk on the significantly milder, far opposite side of the stout spectrum. Rather than being as bombastic as it¹s MUCH higher alcohol cousins, this beer is even on the palate, bringing on a hint of coffee with a highly drinkable yet quite modest backdrop of chocolate and roasty notes. At a mere 4.2% ABV, it's the lowest-alcohol bottled beer we've released in 15 years (the previous being our 3.9% abv one-off release called Lee's Mild in 1999), and you can expect a correspondingly modest body and mouthfeel. Additionally, while some milk stouts have more residual lactose sugar, we opted for a less sweet approach to the category, so you'll notice it finishes fairly dry on the palate. Want more body or a more intense flavor profile? We got that, but this ain't it. This is the lil' one in our stable. Enjoy it for what it is and for what it's not.

Originally brewed as a limited-edition offering at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station, this coffee-laced milk stout quickly became a favorite among Gallagher's peers. Made bittwersweet and creamy while remaining smooth and easy-drinking thanks to the addition of milk surgar, it's clear why this is a brew we needed to share with fans everywhere.
