Kelly Montgomery of Third Eye Brewing won four straight GABF gold medals for milk stout—and he did it at two different breweries, using two different recipes.
“Higher Purpose is dark, sweet, and full bodied,” Montgomery says of his most recent medal-winner at Third Eye. “Soft and creamy sweetness springs from the lactose. Caramel, chocolate, and subtle roast flavors dominate without overpowering the senses.”
