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.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Pours very dark with a crimson hue and deep tan soapy head. The aroma has lots of milky roasted malt, bitter cocoa and vanilla. Medium fully rich body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor starts off with cream and coffee bitterness along with heavily roasted malt. The finish has a lot more bitterness than expected for something called a ’milk stout’ , but still smooth and enjoyable. A very good stout.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2008
355 ml bottle, RBNAG07. Dark brown, almost black. Medium greyish brown head. Bold roasted chocolate aroma. Smooth texture. Licorice flavours. Surprisingly dry for a milk stout. Lacks sweetness. Nice cocao aroma and flavour.

Black with creamy tanned head. Nose is sweet milk with some chocolate & coffee. Flavor strongly milky with a bit sweet chocolate and burned malt. Finishes drier and nicely bitter. Medium bodied with creamy & perhaps a bit syrupy mouthfeel.

daknole (10279) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2008
A nice beer indeed. Smooth body and nice aroma of coffee and some chocolate. One detractor might be a bit of a thin texture, but flavor makes up for that and more. A nice stout.

unclemike (2547) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Sweet aroma, with notes of coffee and roasted malts. Appearance is a dark brown/red, slight head. The flavor has a chocolate coffe taste, with definite notes of lactose from the milk. This milk sugar adds a slightly sour taste to the overall sweetness. Mouthfeel is a little thick, and the finish is long lasting. Overall a decent stout

Pours dark black with smallish tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Sweet, creamy taste eases into a medium bitter finish. Very nice beer.

dolemite77 (184) - Maryville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2008
pours dark brown. Not as black as expected. Thin tan head. Aroma was nice but not strong. The beer seemed a little thin to stand up to the added sweetness of the lactose. Not as good as duck rabbit for a true milk stout, and definitly not as good as bells 2x cream.

Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Attractive, rich sweet stout with very little aroma but a smooth sweet chocolate punch hits the taster on the first sip and allows them a very pleasant ride all the way to the bottom of the pint class. Give this one a try.

Brown in color with a decent tannish colored head. Slight coffee and toastines in the smell. Creamy and smooth. Easy to drink. A little sweetness.

Pours a dark, opaque brown, with medium-small light brown head. Aroma is immediately of coffee with plenty of sugar and cream, and bit of nuttiness. The taste follows suit. The taste (for me) progressed from a very nutty and roasty/roasted malt, and then a toffee/coffee/cream/sweet taste dominated, with the last notes lingering being espresso/coffee. As to palate, it was very smooth and creamy, just slightly carbonated and finishes smooth with some bitterness. Overall, a stout worth paying for.
