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: JUN 9, 2008 (Sample from November 17, 2006 Beer Club Meeting; Sample from May 16, 2008 Beer Club Meeting) This is one of my favorite Left Hand brews. Super duper dark with an off-brown head. Hints of something sweet, maybe vanilla. Nice, lightly chocolate, and super sweet. Deserty, but not overdone. Nice body. A good, solid beer.

mild roasted scent, poured very dark with great sized tan head, surprisingly mellow compared to other stouts and not at all dessert sweet like other milk stouts. the small amount of sweetness that it does have completely removes any roasted aftertastes/bitterness that come with some stouts.

Pours a deep brown with medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Sweet and creamy with almost no bitterness and smooth on the palate. My favorite among this style.

Pours a dark brown to black with a smooth chocolatey aroma and a tan head. The taste starts with light chocolate and finishes with a lingering hint of coffee. Smooth with mild carbonation.

BillKismet (3520) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Carbonated dark brown-black body with a brownish tinted head. Decent dark roast aroma and a flavor of the dark roast, and some chocolate, but with some definite lactose sourness to it. Decent body. Fairly smooth.

ThaBobfather (178) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Nice chocolate, malty smell. Much like a snickers bar. Dark milky appearance. Bit of coffee on the front. Leaves a bitter coffee on the tounge. Not as good as I wanted it to be.

12-oz bottle from 99 Bottles. One of my favorites; similar to Widmer’s Snow Plow only more substantial mouth-feel and more chocolate! Smooth, sweet, and creamy. Roasty malts start out like dark cocoa at initial pour out of the fridge and move toward milk chocolate as the beer moves toward room temperature. Hints of coffee.
