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.

bottle poured into a snifter has a dark chestnut brown color and a thin tan head that retreated to a ring in the glass. aroma has chocolate malt, coco powder, whoppers, light alcohol, and faint roast. creamy and sweet. medium mouth feel with lighter carbonation. flavor is very smooth, chocolate has the spotlight, light roast, and creamy. no burnt or bitterness gives it a nice softness. coffee comes forward as it warms, and the finish is lactic and chocolate.

From bottle. Nice sweet roasty malt aroma, with licorice, chocolate Twizzlers, and some Tootsie Roll. Bittersweet with mild neutral hop character. Light lactose sweetness and carbonic gaseousness. Dark black-brown clear, with thin mild tan lacing head. Medium watery body, smooth, with medium carbonation. Kinda velvety. Starts medium sweet, with chocolate, Tootsie Roll and licorice, and just a bit of coffee. Sweetness hangs around for a while, with roasted malt bitter finish. Light roasted burnt malt character and sour coffee. Mild bitter hop finish. Quite a milky, chocolatey character on this one. Tastes pretty fine.

Poors rich dark brown with a beige head. Sweet light coffee and caramel flavors. Smooth and creamy feel. Slight bitterness, though on the lighter side. Noticeably sweeter than many stouts i’ve had, yet pretty dry finish. Not my favorite style, but a very respectable dark beer.

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Creamy and sweat but just a little bit thin. Decent stout though.

Pours very dark brown with a dark tan head that is not as thick as hoped for. Good lacing though. Aroma is toasty malts and chocolate. It definitely delivers in the sweet department but fails to have the body to back it up. Overall, pretty ok.

Smells of a potent caramel. A nice and dark stout color. Almost no head. Flavor is chocalte and caramel with a nice milk like follow through. A residual bitterness that’s not too sharp. Nice, slightly stunted, stout. Slightly smoky.

Very good stout, dark and sweet but not overpoweringly smooth. The lactose aftertaste is a bit off.

Bottle thanks to daknole. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head floating around. The aroma is very nice; sweet milky notes, some chocolate and roasted, nutty aromas. The taste is excellent; very easygoing milk chocolates and perfectly mixed in roasted malts, some light coffee and an excellent very creamy mouthfeel. I could drink this style every morning for breakfast, though, I doubt I’d get anything done. Very good.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown/black with virtually no head or lacing. Aromas of sweet roasted malts, vanilla and some caramel. Flavors of sweet oats, some chocolate and vanilla. If the palate was a little bigger this would be one killer everyday beer. I think of this as a good intro to stouts for someone looking to try the style.

Bottle. Pours dark black with off-white head. Smells of chocolate and maybe coffee bitterness. Tastes like chocolate milk. Yum.
