COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800ís. 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 benefitsÖsorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year Ďround stout.

Pours a dark brown with a small brown head. Flavor is nothing to write home about but still enjoyable, just nothing amazing. After swallowing you have that left over creaminess comparable to when you drink a tall glass of milk. Kind of weird at first if you havenít had a milk stout before, but once you get used to it itís nice and can be enjoyable. Some people canít get used to it, and I can understand why. A unique beer that could be amazing if the recipe was tweaked a bit to offer a more robust flavor and more pleasant aroma. Would recommend only for the unique experience of this beer, and not so much for the overall taste, aroma, etc...

33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Not that pleasant. Not bad either, but quite boring overall. Roasted malt and milk chocolate in the taste. I think the flavor is too sweet and overall, quite thin. On the other hand, an okay beer but I will not buy it again.

WISEGUY572 (1374) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2008
Pretty straight forward stuff. Nose of sweet chocolate. Taste of sour milk and chocolate ... not unpleasant, more like chocolate pudding and chocolate yogurt blended. Dark brown, small head. Average mouth. Maybe a bonus point for being relatively low alcohol.

Not the first time i have this beut. Aroma is average and not very impressionable. Head is ok, but wish it were a bit tighter. Flavor out dose leaves a marvelous creamy and sweet aftertaste. I love this beer, highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a creamy rich stout.

Pours with a large, rocky light brown head with a black-brown body. Aroma is strong of chalk, chocolate, and oats. Some lacing from the head. Sweet milk and chocolate taste with some smokey toffee in the finish. Milky mouthfeel.

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2008
12oz Bottle: Pours dark brown w/ a small light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, smoke (almost ash-like) & roasted malts. Flavor is very similar to the aroma w/ some coffee as well. Iím not quite sure where the sweet is in this stout because Iím not finding it. Not bad, but itís very close to being too burnt/bitter for me, itís right on the edge...

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - APR 18, 2008
Black with vanishing head. Very round aromas, chocolate, coffee, almost capuccino. Creamy mouthfeel but way too sweet for my likings.
