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.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 14, 2008
(draught sample) Dark brown- near black with tan head. Roast malt aroma. Flavor is sweet with hints of chocolate. Would be a great beer to make a stout float with.

alraicercsu (166) - Ft.Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and cream. Tastes like milk chocolate and coffee, slight bitter initial bite but smoothes out and ends sweet.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Mostly coffee and milk chocolate overall. Fluffy light brown head on an extremely dark beer. Smooth hint of bitter coffee with a slight milk or cream aspect. A bit of sugary sweetness more than the cream comes through.

norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Black beer with simple tan head. Smells of chocolate and toffee. Smooth with layers of milky sweetness and light coffee. Not overly filling, easy to drink. Solid beer.

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Very dark pour with plenty of amber highlights. A big tan two tiered head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Some roasted notes as well. Flavor is as the aroma. It is plenty sweet and the feel is powdery. You may never find an easier drinking stout or one that works well in hot weather. A very nice beer.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Bottle. Lots of coffee and roasted malt in the nose and mouth. Some ripe fruits in the nose, some authentic milk flavor as well. Somewhat creamy, quite drinkable. Solid.

LilBeerDoctor (3527) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Bottle. Pours a black with a small white head. Aroma strongly of coffee, some chocolate. Flavor of coffee, bitter roast, and a sort of a parmesean cheese taste that I’m not sure what to attribute to. At first this was just ok, but it did grow on me a little.

ThunderChicken (10) - Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Sweet nose. Rich and roasty with lactose sweetnes that is not cloying. Very nice balanced beer. EK golding hops in prefect balance with the rich sweetness of this beer.

thejon375 (414) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 If you like a malty chocolate milkshake, you will truly enjoy the thickest beer I have ever had. A little sweet but overall a great beer to end the night.
