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. At HV. Pours a very dark brown with a head that dissipates. Aroma if roasted malt, vanilla toffee biscuit, sweet cream, hazelnut notes. Medium light sweetness with light bitter. Creamy texture. Dry finish. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice sweet stout that’s not a big imperial stout. This would be a perfect beer to introduce noobs to "dark" beer.

Nitro is the way to go. Pours dark as night with a thick creamy off white head. Pour with the bottle upside down and let her rip. Watching the tiny nitro bubble settle to the top is half the fun with this beer. Aroma of sweet milk and dark chocolate, with a slight roast. The foam is buttery while the beer is chocolaty and milky sweet. It finishes dry which makes it incredibly drinkable.

I had this on the nitro tap on draft. Incredible! This may be tied with the nitro naked porter from Dry Dock as my favorite beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ketail (81) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
Bu le 18 août 2014 en bouteille. Œil: mousse beige exceptionnelle! Noir intense. Une fois versé dans le verre, il y a un spectacle pour nos yeux! Arôme: chocolat au lait et rôties. Goût: onctueuse, une belle présence en bouche. Chocolat au lait. Note: 4-4.5/5

On nitro tap at Skewed Brewing. Stout brown with a medium, lasting, pale brown head. The roast in the nose tells you it’s a stout, although not necessarily a cream stout. It’s definitely there in the flavour though. It’s pretty simple: chocolate milk and roast. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Solid stout.

One of our favorite stouts. Very dark in the glass with a beautiful creamy head. Tastes like dark chocolate and coffee. Incredibly smooth and creamy. Very nice.

Nice balance. Very nice milk stout with slightly chocolate character combined with lactose sweetness.

dambor (34) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
Nitro version in bottle. Pours almost black with a beautiful large head, leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma: generally very subtle, with lactose, roasted malt, some chocolate and coffee. Taste: subtle roasted malt with coffee - Incredibly creamy and well balanced, which makes it super drinkable. The fact that I had to control myslef not to drink it in 5 minutes confirms the latter.
