Chocolate Milk Stout Chocolate milk, just like your momma used to make you. Or probably made for herself, when you had tantrums about everything from eating your vegetables to cleaning your room. This grownup version of a favorite childhood drink is likely to find a spot in your repertoire of adult comfort foods. [wpex more="Read more" less="Read less"] Sweet stouts comprise only a small percentage of the many stouts commercially available. To make these sweet stouts, grains such as oats and flaked barley are added which provide a soft and full mouthfeel as well as residual sweetness. Additionally, CaCow! is brewed with lactose, an unfermentable milk sugar (with apologies to our vegan and lactose-intolerant friends!), in the tradition of ‘milk stout.’ In the late 19th and earlier 20th centuries, doctors often (erroneously) prescribed Milk Stouts to pregnant and lactating women to aid in the production of milk for breast feeding their babies (or perhaps just to sooth their frazzled nerves). This beer was further aged with cacao nibs direct from our friends at Taza Chocolate in Somerville. Cacao nibs are not inherently sweet, they are cocoa beans that have been roasted in a manner similar to coffee beans. Instead of a sweet chocolaty flavor, they contribute a rich roasted finish. House-made vanilla extract was also used as a complement to the richness of the nibs and to balance the roast with a little extra sweetness. First formulated by CBC’s Lead Brewster, Megan Parisi.
