New Limburg Black Sheep
This milk stout is the least Belgian of the lot and could be said to be a bit of a Black Sheep. It’s packed with roasted character and strong coffee like flavours with hints of chocolate. It’s been finished with vanilla which, in combination with the lactose, provides a wonderful sweetness and full body. This beer is brewed with the finest malts from the U.K. and uses German Northern Brewer hops for bittering and as slight flavour contributor. Unlike our other beers, it uses an English yeast leaving more residual sugar and with a completely different flavour profile.
Dark brown to black in colour. Sweet stouts come in three main varieties - milk stout, oatmeal stout, and foreign stout. Milk stouts are made with the addition of lactose, and are sweet, low-alcohol brews. Oatmeal lends a smooth fullness of body to stouts, while foreign stouts are stronger (6.5-8% abv) and have a sweet malt profile and high esters. All of the sweet stouts are noted for their restrained roastiness in comparison with other stouts, and low hop levels.
