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.

Bottle from utobeer via cgarvieuk. Aroma is sweet choclate malt. Taste is similarly sweet choclate malt, hints of floural hop, but very choclaty and good carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (8228) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2007
Thick dark beige head, leaving lace over black beer with ruby highlights. Sweet liquorice nose, jap , bakery smell and dark malts. Lightly smokey flavour, cigarette ash, underlying sweet & dark malts + lactose sweetness. Sticky sweet aftertaste, light bodied. Not a bad milk stout - for the amateurs. Is this really brewed in Colorado??? It even has Dutch on the EU label.

Draught @ Taco Mac. Good milk stout but I like Mackeson xxx better. Nice flavors of sweet and bitter but not the best I have had.

MrBunn (2528) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a medium/small head. Aromas are sweet and have notes of roasted malt, cream, vanilla, etc. Flavor is heavily sweet and pleasant, but lacks any interesting plot development. A bit of a brown sugar and sweet chocolate is pleasant.

DrPiva (96) - Alabama, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Very smooth with almost imperceptible hops flavoring. As a black coffee lover this is a great beer. Creamy with very little carbonation makes drinking them too easy – the 5.3% catches up quickly. A step-down from Mackeson in intensity but an awesome beer.

kringlan (20) - Falun, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2007
Black/dark brown with reddish reflections. Small off-white head. Good lacing. Sweet aroma of chocolate, nuts coffee and milk. Lively palate. Quite watery i.e. not very stouty. Not a lot of aftertaste; the little there is is sweet. Flavor of chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, filmjölk (Swedish equivalent to butter milk). Actually , this is probably what a “coffee-with-milk-drinker” would like. I think this beer would make an excellent accompaniment to some chocolaty desert.

glaze0101 (79) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 13, 2007
redish dark brown with a tan head. creamy flavour sweet aftertaste. I actually tried this as a beer float with some nice vanilla ice cream and it was great!

bluevegie (3064) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2007
Deep red/dark brown body with a compact light tan head. Milk chocolate on the nose, sweet in the taste, fairly smooth, hints of coffee. Enjoyable!

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Pours a thick black with a large foamy tan head which dissipates rather quickly, leaving plenty of lacing. Aroma is strongly chocolate, with some coffee and dark roasts. Taste is rich chocolate with a little coffee. The taste is not bitter or harsh like an Impy but flat and smooth, like an alcoholic nesquick. A sessionable stout.
