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.

355ml bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a black colour with a light-brown creamy head that settled down slowly in the glass. It has a pleasant aroma that smells of roasted malts, milk chocolate and hints of caramel. The flavour is a bit thin and watery and tastes of milk chocolate, thin/weak coffee and malts. It has a short aftertaste. It’s a nice starter-stout, but people that like stouts will find this a bit lacking.

Deep brown with a beige head. Roasted malts, milk chocolate, caramel/molasses. Extremely smooth body. Roasted malts, malty, milk, some cocoa, light coffee, and toffee. Really easy to drink, and very tasty. Quality.

I am not a traditional stout enthusiast. to me, it was another dark beer that smelled rich, but that wasn’t unusual. I slurped on this fella on tap and felt like i was inhaling liquid love from a chocolate/cream and gold treasure chest. ii’d like me some stout now, thank ya.

12 oz. bottle. Pour at first appears black, but held to bright light is actually exceptionally deep ruby. Short creamy tan head subsides to a thin ring as it warms. Aroma is of chocolate and deep roasted malts. Taste is more of same, with roasty edge softened by the sweet lactose. Body is moderate and palate smooth. A fine cream stout.

Coffee/grape aroma. The alcohol is present in the flavor, which is coffee and dark chocolate. Creaminess becomes apparent as the beer warms.

Draught in Pothuiske in Mestreech. Very dark, almost black color with thin cappuccino brown head. Roasty nose. Aroma is roasty malts with caramel which dominates the flavour, too. Pleasant roasty bitter aftertaste. The latte of beers ! :)

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 This sweet stout pours black with a light tan head that gives wofts of chocolate... yeah mainly chocolate aroma. The head dissapates faster than you can say "milk stout"! Leaves ok lacing. Feels kinda light.. no it’s just real sweet. I like it. The malts shine here....can’t indicate any hops but I know they are in there. Knock knock...who’s there? Need more hops that’s who! Pretty decent cream (sweet stout) though.

Thick, black, with a thin espresso tinged head which quickly clears to make way for dark chocolate, espresso, raisins and cream. A quaff of super smooth sweet cream hints and overflowing dark chocolate, not too bitter, with some smoked wood. Espresso bitterness hits in the back of my tongue after the fact, preventing the Milk Stout from being overly cloying and sweet. Surprisingly not a heavy or thick body, but very clean and almost light for a milk stout. it’s interesting to note that the milk is not upfront and personal, but hanging around in the back, watching over all the other flavor profiles which make up her circle of friends. More chocolate presence about halfway through, though more milk chocolate then dark, sweeter and less bitter. I get a bit more smokiness in the breath of the beer, as milky cream, chocolate, and coffee round out the palate all the way to the last quaff with a lightly dry flourish.
A very well balanced representation of the style. I usually can’t do more than one stout at a time, but I could enjoy a couple of these and be just fine.
