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.

For a milk stout the cream note was very light and not a sweet as expected otherwise a good chocolate flavor, would try again.

12 oz bottle and bottled Jan 2006. Pour black in color with minimal brown head that does not last long. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste of coffee mostly and dark chocolate with slight bitter after taste.

Dark brown pour with ligh creamy head. Roasted malts and sweet cream flavor. A little tangy in the finish. As my first milk stout I though it was pretty good.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Bottle, pours a brownish/black with a slight rim of a white head, no lacing. Aroma of intense roasted malts with some sweetness. Taste follows the same with mostly roasted malts. Fairly light and mild. Not bad but nothing special.

Tap @ Poor Phil’s in Oak Park: Thin, tan head with a dark body. Simple, mild milk aroma with licorice notes. Milk-like sweetness in the mouth with licorice notes in finish. Building coffee and roasted notes. Silky mouthfeel.

This milk stout pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. This was my first milk stout, but I’d like to try others. Overall I enjoyed my first milk stout.

My first Milk Stout,/Sweet Stout/Left Hand.. And I feel I started out on a good note. It pours nice and mildly-thick. Huge tastes and feels of thick cream throughout the taste and palate. It smelled fantastic. Very unique.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2007
(Draft @ HOU FS DT): Pours a dark black color, average tannish head, lasting. Weak aroma(could be the smoky atmospere), hard to describe. Coffee, chololately, water taste, creamy. Clean aftertaste. Light tasty drink. Not too complex, but good.

nearbeer (3428) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2009 Draft at Nama. Two finger head, not much aroma - maybe overpowered by restaurant food smells. Mostly opaque ebony with copper highlights. Not as much body as most stouts, not much sweetness in my tasting either. Mostly coffee on the beginning and end, but balanced out nicely.

I didn’t realize there are so many milk stouts out there. This is the only one I’ve tried, so perhaps discount my opinion, but this is one of the most delicious beers I’ve had. It drinks ridiculously smooth. It feels heavy (creamy) as you drink it, but doesn’t ’fill you up’ as you’d think it would. Most stouts, I’d rather drink with food. Not necessary with this one.
