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.

12oz bottle. Very good stout. I am usually not one for milk types, but this has a characteristic that is distinguished. Hard chocolate tones with a coffee linger. Pours very well and has the looks of something you’d take home to your parents!

Pours dark, aroma of coffee is present, not much of a head. Over-all the beer wasn’t bad , just not what I was expecting.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Pours a nice dark color, with a big creamy tan head. Aroma is lots of dark chocolate and coffee, delicious. Flavor is more of the same. Very good beer.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 probably my second favorite beer, next to young’s double choclate stout. this is another creamy/sweet stout, but totally different. very smooth, very creamy, very dark and rich. mild head, and no tracing to speak of. looks and tastes (as others said) almost like chocolate milk. very nice balance of malts in this one. this is a very drinkable beer, and one which i will continue to get from time to time. UTTERly delicious!!

SHANER4 (483) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2008
12oz bottle - Poured a blackish brown color with medium head that quickly faded. Nose is sweet milk mixed with coffee. Taste is sour sweet with a coffee finish. This brew tastes like the title but not really a fan of this style brew. Reminds me of drinking a glass of milk and having that sour milk taste in your mouth, so have good dinner and maybe you can enjoy this brew.
