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.

Beautiful black pour with an off-white head, which lasted longer than usual for this style. Incredibly strong coffee notes with a subtle hint of chocolate as well. Creamy mouthfeel with strong coffee flavor. It’s funny - I don’t drink coffee and never find myself wanting to hit the local Starbucks, but I love the cream stout style. This is a great beer.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2007 Poured an attractive dark color with off-white head that hung around for a while. Aroma was of coffee and chocolate. Flavor was also of chocolate, coffee and maybe a bit of caramel. Mouthfeel was nice. Drinkability is good on this one. Maybe not the most complex, but very enjoyable.

Too sweet, but otherwise damn good. A fine example of the style.... the only other admirable one that I’ve had was from Japan’s Hitachino. Once agoin quite good...just wish it was not so fucking sweet.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2007
Bottle. Black colour with a light brown head. An aroma of sweet milk chocolate spreads immediately. On a closer inspection it reveals roasted tones with a whiff of coffee & bitter chocolate. Nice taste of coffee with a balanced bitterness. Soft finish.

Dark brown with a nice sized tan head. Aroma was roasty and nutty with some chocolate. Very smooth and creamy with a nice dry finish. Sweet throughout but with a nice roaty complex for balance. A good sweet stout.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 12 oz Bottle from John’s Grocery (Iowa City, IA). Poured into a conical pint glass. Pours an extremely dark brown, not really letting any light through at all and has a nice big creamy thick head. Aroma of toasted malt and the faint smell of coffee. A smooth stout that is very mouth friendly and goes down well. Malt, coffee, and maybe some chocolate. The finish is sweet, fitting well with a milk stout. The flavor is light, but not necessarily in a bad way. Goes down extremely well and leaves a pleasant aftertaste. Head definately laced the glass. A fine stout but a bit underpowered in regards to what I expected in taste.
