COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800’s. The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefits…sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year ‘round stout.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Looks great in the glass when poured ’hard’ as the bottle says. Aroma of coffee, chocolate slightly smoky too. Really smooth, chocolate and coffee with a touch of sweetness. Very very good stuff this.

Garrold (1336) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. The Nitro version. Poured "cold and hard", as per instruction. Clear, dark chestnut brown. Minimal tan head. Nutty, coffee bean, milk chocolate aroma. Taste is milky sweet. Light cocoa dry. Palate is sickly soft, and a bit thin. Finish is sweet, with a hint of liquorice right at the close.

classic (5.2%)looked like a porter/stout hybrid...not quite as dark as i expected. light tan head. smooth creamy body, a touch of the thin side, but the smoothness almost makes up for it. flavor and aroma not terribly complex, but good. malted milk chocolate and roasted malt...more chocolate in the flavor than the aroma. slightly bittersweet finish. overall, a touch lighter than i’d hoped, but a solid brew. (3.6) nitro 6% "A slightly bigger abv and smoother version of their milk stout. I detected more chocolate as well, and a little less of the lactic quality. Very very enjoyable brew.... (4.0)

floydslip (173) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Dark brown beer with a medium foamy root beer head that lasts a few minutes. Subtle nose of roasted nuts, cocoa, and sweet vanilla. Flavor is much more pronounced with a rich chocolate opening followed by some roasted grain, caramel, and burnt toast flavors. It finishes with a light bitterness that counterbalances well. The mouth feel is rich and creamy. A good stout, if a bit on the sweet side.

Nitro draft pour at the taphouse. Pours a thick black with a a fizzy head that lasts forever. Sweet chocolate aroma. Super sweet and creamy flavor. Thick body. Pretty good beer overall. Maybe a tad too sweet.
