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.

pollardjt (27) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Coffee, toffee, touch of Irish cream. Very smooth, not a whole lot of carbonation (as to be expected). Great malt, and almost creamy palate. In the end, a little too sweet for me though.

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2008
Well rounded aroma reminiscent of Irish liqueur, milk chocolate, toffee’d pecans and a little aniseed and tar. Black as black, and opaque. Very, very fine bubbles weave up the side of the glass. The head is tight and compact, a pad of tannish cream that holds unrelenting for the length and leaves a fine lace. Nice, mellow, pasty smooth palate. Body is full and some well rounded flavours build it up nicely. Rich milk chocolate, a hit of raisins, bitter roasted coffee beans and Kopiko candies. Very robust malt flavours, all well melded and balanced. The swallow is malty bitter, the length is impressive, smooth and malty with a hint of burnt caramel. This is a very nice stout. (355ml, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2008
12oz. Mmmhhmmmm, this was a lovely dessert. Pours a beautiful deep brown with red highlights. Aroma is like a pastry shop with sweet caramel and bread notes, with some roasted coffee that the pasty shop also sells. Body is extremely tasty, like a sweetened latte. Palate is also very good, well lifted from carbonation but also palate coating richness. I love this style.
