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.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 probably my second favorite beer, next to young’s double choclate stout. this is another creamy/sweet stout, but totally different. very smooth, very creamy, very dark and rich. mild head, and no tracing to speak of. looks and tastes (as others said) almost like chocolate milk. very nice balance of malts in this one. this is a very drinkable beer, and one which i will continue to get from time to time. UTTERly delicious!!

SHANER4 (481) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2008
12oz bottle - Poured a blackish brown color with medium head that quickly faded. Nose is sweet milk mixed with coffee. Taste is sour sweet with a coffee finish. This brew tastes like the title but not really a fan of this style brew. Reminds me of drinking a glass of milk and having that sour milk taste in your mouth, so have good dinner and maybe you can enjoy this brew.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 Bottle. Almost black color with a disappearing pale brown head. Aroma: Sweet and roasted malt, liqourice, milk chocolate, smoke and some hops. Flavor: Sweet, roasted malt, liqourice, prunes, chocolate and toffee. Creamy and smooth. A bit too sweet and cloying for me.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JAN 3, 2008
(on bottle) This ber is effin smooth, like fudge. Aroma of milk chocolate, liqourice and cream. Very dark brown and a white head, nice looking. Tha mouthfeel is as before mentioned, very creamy and floats down like a smoothie. Has a bit of dry roastyness in finish and that just ups a very nice beer for me.

Bier brauen (246) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Quite a sweet, earthy and molasses aroma. Quite pleasant. Its appearance is brownish-black, no head, but the carbonation fades fast. That’s why I gave it a three for palate. If I was Left Hand Brewing, I’d work on that. Nice flavors of prunes, chocolate, with a sweet and somewhat smokey finish. Medium-thick mouthfeel. Nice overall

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 Pours dark with a hint of amber. Brown head. Rich malty aroma. Sweet, with java and chocolate. Nice finish for a lighter stout.
