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.

draft into a pint glass from Redbone’s in Somerville... The aroma was chocolate, coffee, and alcohol. The first sip was smoky and smooth. It was so smooth that it led to a couple of involuntary gulps... yummers. The mouth feel was heavy, but the light carbonation and diverse flavors made it extremely drinkable. This was my first beer at redbone’s and my first left hand offering. This was a nice beer experience.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2007 Black appearance, thick lasting brown head. Malts and chocolate in aroma. Sweet flavour, some sourness even, quite watery. Tastes like a sweet Guinness. Quite ok, as long as you don’t drink more than a few in a row, as it might get boring.

Really had high hopes for this, especially after the aroma hinted at a thicker, more milky version of Sam Smith’s Oatmeal Stout. Unfortunately, the flavor was more Guinness Draught with added water. Hints of chocolate and milk, but the water just washed them away quickly. The texture is too thin, as is the carbonation. Overall, a disappointment.

pours dark brown with a creamy tan head with slight carbonation. scents of cream, chocolate, and coffee. medium thickness, and a nice smooth feel. coffee and baker’s chocolate with a touch of cream for smoothness define the flavor. a nice little stout all round.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2007
Dark red/brown translucent body, with a large and persistent head. Excellent lacing. Malty aroma with vanilla, liqourice, sweet chocolate, and dark sugar. Taste was equally sweet and chocolaty, not much roastyness at all, like sweet mocha-coffee. Thick mouthfeel but not syrupy, plus very little carbonation. A nice simple sweet stout.
