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.

Part of a bottle. Black with thin head. Roasted, chocolate and caramel. Quite thin for a stout and quite low alcohol which is good for a change.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2008 it reminded me of an old rasputin yet a little thinner and less alcohol involved. great beer nonetheless

My first stout in a while...its summer, so I’ve been sticking to pale ales mostly. Had this with some gator soft tacos with a bleu cheese relish...complemented each other really well. Pours a jet black with faint hints of dark brown, and a three-finger light brown head. Smells of heavy roasted oatmeal, some light chocolate and coffee. Taste reminds me of a really sweet Guinness, some toffee, the lactose sugar is very evident. VERY filling.

Tap. A heavy creamy stout that fills you up. Could be a meal replacement drink. A heavy chocolate malty flavor complimented with a caramel and coffee finish. A true stout.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2007
Bottled. Nice roasted aroma with loads of coffee. Very black, light brown firm head, good lace. Sweet, roasted coffee, chocolate, some blackberries. Full, light hop dry. Well balanced, flavorful. Gives an imperial feeling with only 5.2% ABV.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 nice dark pour...initial smell of cigarettes and burnt cream with hints of caramel. flavor is malty with some hints of chocolate and a light burnt/coffee after taste. a little thin but good overall7/4/7/2/15=3.4

fresh bottle reveals aromas of cocoa, wood and vanilla cream. flavors of wood, nuttiness, chocolate and lacto. nice astringency helps to break up the smooth texture. 7/4/7/3/16=3.7

Maria (10156) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2007
Black with a weak red hue and a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of chocolate and roasted malt and perhaps a very light sourness, but not like the hard-core milk stouts - nice. The flavour has a nice sweetness, notes of roasted malt, chocolate, sweet coffee and a very discrete sourness and a light bitterness. The body is quite full in spite of the relatively low ABV - really nice. 2391

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Pours black with garnet highlights and a creamy, tan head. The nose is of chocolate, coffee and cream with a sour lactose note. Medium-bodied and creamy, it feels soft on the tongue and concludes with dry/roasted and lightly metallic notes. The flavor is of milk chocolate, coffee and cream with a lightly dry and sour finish. I really enjoy a good sweet stout, and this beer is no exception.
