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.

ChainGangGuy (4531) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Appearance: Pours an opaque, black body with a bubbly cap of chalk white bubbles. Smell: Dark malt aroma with some roasty grain notes, a bit of scorched sugar and a pint of chocolate milk. Taste: Dark malts with a chocolate milk flavor. A bit of roastiness perks up. Crumbled fudge cookies. Medium sweetness. There’s only a mild bitterness present, so the beer certainly remains on the sweet side. Finishes roasty and milky sweet. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight creaminess. Drinkability: Not bad! A flavorful, sweetish milk stout.

*DNM/WBM* aroma: i smell some cocoa.. when i close my eyes and smell this beer i see a farmer with a sasuage hangin out of his mouth like a fancy cigar milking a cow has just recently made a special poo brew of her own. App: when i look at this beer i see the dryed blood of a great war from long ago.. a whole nation destroyed.. so many lost. .. the battle to place in a dry arid grassy plain. Flavor: when i close my eyes and taste this beer i see an idiot eating smores buy a campfire in the dark cold of a winter night.. he is alone, and a little scared.. but he does have smores. Palate: when i close my eyes and feel this beer with my mouth i see an escolator in a trendy socialy snob filled mall. OA: when i close my eyes and think about this whole experiance, i see a cow with mountians of sugar in its mouth that its chomping on while most spills out the edges.. as it chews.. it poo’s. and dribbles just the smallest amounts of chocolate milk out of its teat.

pours a dark almost black color. Has the smell of roasted malts, chocolate, & coffee. Taste is really smooth. Reminds me of coffee with a bit of cream and a very little bit of sugar. Wish it was more readily available at my local grocery store.

Smells super coffee-y/chocolate-y. The sweetness of the sweet stout makes it taste sticky and a faint smell of soured milk (probably just because it’s inferred by the name). Very drinkable.

Dark garnet body, small tan head. Aroma of oatmeal, cram, and roasted coffee. Flavor is rich and full of toasted oats and bittersweet chocolate. Sweet, rich finish. Very tasty.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2012 bottle, nice thin tan head, nose of coffee and malt, good burnt toast , bittersweet chocolate and caramel sugar flavors, finish is a little oily and nondescript 51812 nitro really works for this

Poured a dark brown, almost black, with a nice finger of cream-colored head. Smells of dark malts and chocolates. The taste was chocolate, coffee, and dark malts. Really good. Heavy and creamy in the mouth, very smooth. Definately goes down smooth, I could have downed a few more of these if I wasn’t just sampling. Serving type: on-tap
