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.

Pours a dark, opaque brown, with medium-small light brown head. Aroma is immediately of coffee with plenty of sugar and cream, and bit of nuttiness. The taste follows suit. The taste (for me) progressed from a very nutty and roasty/roasted malt, and then a toffee/coffee/cream/sweet taste dominated, with the last notes lingering being espresso/coffee. As to palate, it was very smooth and creamy, just slightly carbonated and finishes smooth with some bitterness. Overall, a stout worth paying for.

morning coffee aroma, black center, chestnut edges. 3 finger head of dusted white, fair lacing. pretty sweet, nearly cloying. good body, but the concentrated thickness hurts the experience for me.

Bottle. Clear dark red brown color with a large, creamy, excellent lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, milk chocolate, mocca, notes of vanilla. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily - creamy, carbonation is soft. (060208)

Dark brown with hardly any head. aroma was roasted malts & was thick and to the palate. Taste startes malty followed by a mild nutty flavor that ends with a sweet after taste.

I highly enjoyed this stout.....Poured a nice dark, brown with tan head with very nice retention.....Aroma of dark roast and chocolate....Flavor was nice, smooth, slightly creamy, and had excellent use of chocolate and black patent (I assume) malts, medium carbonation.......very nice...

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Pours a dark dark brown, nearly black with no light passing through. A beautiful dark tan head that calms to a lasting tan film throughout the drink. The nose is roasted coffees, mocha, all those great dark, moody milk stout smells. The mouthfeel is smooth with light carbonation while the flavor matches the nose, heavy roasted flavors, mocha, coffee, toffee, and some chocolate and caramel. Not overly complex but one of my very favorite milk stouts.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2008
Dark brown oily brew. Roasted sweet malty aroma. Roasted malts, sweetness and chocolate bitterness in the flavor. But a bit too sweet for me.
