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.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 30, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2009 Bottled 355ml. It pours a black beer with a beige head. The aroma is of burnt tyres, roasted malt, dark chocolate and milk. A smoky touch in the nose too... Hints of seawater and candy. The taste is of dark chocolate, milk and candy sugar. Some eucalyptus and cress? Quite smoky. Some hints of hazelnuts. This stout is rather sweet. Medium bodied. The finish is very pleasant with hints of coffee and milk. A wonderful beer. Rerate: I was surprised how evident the lactic components where in the nose - usually a characteristic that only shows up in the taste. Hints of soy sauce. Extremely interesting. Sampled at a temperature that was probably slightly too high. Fantastic finish. In any case a great beer. I am staying at the score of 4.2. I am glad I can get this beer very easily. Second rerate: A great beer. Extremely pleasant with hints of herbs (sage, basil etc.) accompanied by a lot of coffee.

Deep, dark black pour. Fluffy light tan head with decent retention. The foam eventually settles to a thin rim, with spotted lacing dotting the glass in its wake. The aroma shows big roasted barley, with dry coffee beans and a bit of cane sugar. The flavor is basic, though well executed. I got lots of roasted grains, with ample amounts of heavy cream, coffee, light soy sauce, and some turbinado. The body is medium-full and very smooth, with a creamy, slightly sticky texture. Not complex, but well executed and incredibly easy to drink. I like it!

this stout was a bit too average... the aroma was wonderful coffee but the taste did not live up

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2007
12 oz bottle. Deep black beer with a creamy brown head. Lovely sweet milk chocolate aroma, soft sweet caramel and a bit of vanilla as well. Hints of plums and blackberries. Some lightly roasted coffee. Sweet with lots of milk chocolate flavour. Soft earthy roastiness on the back. Well-made tasty brew.

after4ever (6111) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2007
12-ounce. Pours deep opaque black with a thick, moussy tan head that falls to film, leaving plenty of lace. Nice sweet nose; chocolate and a whiff of licorice. Medium body, softish carb, and nice roasty forward flavors. Pleasing mid-palate that doesn’t open up much from the attack--just more sweetness and roast and a well-balanced mouthfeel. Clean finish with a little roasty bitterness and very light hop notes (resiny, barely). Nice stuff, very sessionable. Winsome stout. Especially if, like me, you have a bit of a sweet tooth.

obguthr (3763) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Aroma of french vanilla coffee, cream, and barley. Dark burgundy almost black color, thin head, good lacing. Full bodied, sweet and sour taste of plum, cherries, and smoke. Subdued woody french roast finish. Very drinkable.

Lots of chocolate and coffee in the nose. Sweet, coffee, nutty and milkchocolate in the taste. Nice thick mouthfeel and a good fruity long finish. Very nice!

Bottle from BierKoning. Dark licorice colour. Chocolate, hazelnut, coffee and malt flavour. Very smooth, like butter. Mouthtexture comparable to mudpie. Extra points for the cow on the label.
