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.

Black color with creamy yet disappearing beige head which leaves some light lacing on the inside of the glass. Rich aroma with cocoaliquor and a light touch of roasted malt. Creamy, milky flavor with chocolate and hints of coffe. Wellbalanced and smooth bitterness in the finish.

thewolf (12074) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle @ The Rake, London.
Pours almost black with slight red edges. A great, creamy, light-beige head on top. Powerful aroma, good milky chocolate, almonds, roasted malts and a little coffee. Fine, lightly creamy mouthfeel. Sweet flavour, lots of milky chocolate and softly roasted malts. A fine, balanced dryness in the finish. Truly a very drinkable beer.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2008
Creamy, roasted, chocolate, a hint of coffee in the end. Quite mild yet pleasant, could be a bit heavier on the body.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2008
Very dark brown. Sweet taste with woodsmoke and composty vegetal notes, very autumnal and curiously nostalgic. Sour milk taste with some ash, liquorice and sugar. Some residual dryness, but the overall effect is intensely comforting and delicious.

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 (2894) - 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)
