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.

This Milk stout is roasty, with a great body. It isn’t too chewey though. It’s too sweet, which might need more hops to balance.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle. Black colour with a nice tan head. The aroma is sweet, roasted malt with some chocolate. Sweet, roasted flavour with notes of cocoa and coffee. Medium-bodied, long roasted aftertaste and quite smooth mouthfeel. Very tasty stout.

imdownthepub (13033) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2009
Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Near black with little head. Drank pretty soon after the Bete Noire and it didn’t stand up against it at all. Sweet sticky stout with a molasses note, but not in a great way. Some chocolate, but really dead, dull flavours. I really cannot comprehend the high ratings. Poor stuff.

revans (46) - Salem, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Smells like chocolate cake batter. Pours well with a decent head. The flavor reminds me of Whoppers candy. Good mouthfeel, nice and thick. This is my favorite milk stout that I’ve found so far.
