COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We are proud offer one of the few surviving examples of this traditional English style sweet stout. A bold, dark ale bursting with roasted barley dryness and mellowed by hints of chocolate and coffee.

Poured black with a tint of ruby red at the edges. Seemed thin on the pour and left a very small tan head. Aroma is a smoky roasted malt with coffee notes. Medium bodied and smooth with a crisp mouthfeel. Flavor is of roasted malt and slightly sweet with a dry finish. Nothing outstanding and could use more flavor in my opinion. Not bad though overall. Thanks to Slob for the sample.

Excellent sweet stout. Drank mine at the Lancaster Brewing Co. brewery. It was fresh, smooth, with excellent aroma and flavor. Better than any import including Sam Smith's stouts.

Dark in color. Not a bad beer. Had it at a beer festival in Pa. Very enjoyable. Rich in malt flavor. Had some roasty notes to it. Very good.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2003
Nice dark color. Roasty aroma. Rich malt with roasty notes. Has always been a favorite stout and still is. Worth seeking.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2004 Black color, little head. Aroma of coffee, sugar and cream. Fairly sweet but not overly sweet. Enjoyable. Mouthfeel is creamy. Finish sweet. Thanks slob for this one!

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Decent stout. Near black with a nice dark brown head that lingers for some time. Robust roasted coffee flavor with a slight hint of bitter sweetness. Mild oily mouth feel. Nothing spectacular but definitely not bad.

BigSkyman007 (202) - USA - NOV 11, 2003
Nice roasty aroma, with hints of coffee and chocolate. Beer poured a rich opaque black color, with a medium brown head. Coffee flavor slightly dominates the chocolate hints, with a lactose taste similar to that in Mackeson Stout. A very good sweet stout!

guzzler67 (1525) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Very dark with a faint ruby edge. Toasted barley and molassas aroma. Medium-bodied flavor with a smooth, sweet taste. Finish was mild and malty.

jazz88 (2564) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Bottle. Solid black color with an explosive light foamy cascading brown head. A chalky and chocolate aroma with some nuts. Given the robust head I wasn't surprised to find a spritzy palate that ends with a dry nut and dark roasted flavor. Not as rich as I expected. As it warmed the beer mellowed, the sweet chocolates were drawn out and planted firmly in a long finish. Thanks to Phillymonksman.

ARMed (613) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2003
Nice stout with a dark brown head and a good lacing. Thick and black with a sweet chocolately flavor. Smoot and mellow tasting on the palate. Slightly bitter aftertaste with a strong roasted flavor. A very good stout. Obviously no milk included in this brew, but what would it taste like if it was?
