Hey, Trigger again, writing about Maltese beer. Today, the beer up for the blog is Tupac Sha’more. Maltese has created a S’more milk stout. I guess the first thing I should explain is milk stout. A milk stout is simply a stout that adds lactose, which is milk sugar. I should be upfront. I love milk stouts, even if I’m a bit lactose intolerant. They have a nice sweetness that makes them almost candy like in flavor.
This particular beverage is designed to replicate a S’more. While I don’t know if that is exactly possible with beer, I do detect chocolate and vanilla flavors in the front of the taste. I also get a graham cracker flavor, solidly on the finish. It’s pretty sweet, but not sickeningly sweet. The first test batch came out way too sweet, and lessons were learned.
Milk stouts are usually around 6 to 7 percent abv. This comes out exactly in the middle at 6.5 percent. This is a great beer to end the night on, paired with a meal as a dessert. Give this one a shot, I think you’ll like it.
First of all, hello! My name is Jeffrey Trigger. I like to drink Maltese beer. About me, I am a beer lover of all styles, enjoy brewing at the homebrew level, and good conversation about beer. The folks at Maltese were kind enough to have me write about their beer. They did give me one caveat, and that was to write it so all could understand what I’m talking about. So you have it on my honor, I’ll write this to the best of my ability without sounding like a snob.
