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.

Poured a dark brown, almost black, with a nice finger of cream-colored head. Smells of dark malts and chocolates. The taste was chocolate, coffee, and dark malts. Really good. Heavy and creamy in the mouth, very smooth. Definately goes down smooth, I could have downed a few more of these if I wasn’t just sampling. Serving type: on-tap

Now this is a good stout. The milk sugars do seem to mellow the usual stout roastiness, but I found it quite enjoyable to drink. It is a very dark opaque color with a finger or two of tan head. Cellar temperature seemed ideal as the flavor just kept improving as the beer warmed a bit after coming out of the frig. A bit of sweetness there, but the roasted malt is still the predominate flavor and aroma.

jhagmar (114) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2008
355 ml bottle. Thanks to ekstedt. Deep brownish black with a large, stable beige head. Roasted malty aroma with tones of smoke, caramel, chocolate and raisins. Tasting reveals more of the roasted aroma. The taste is sweet and full, with a smooth mouthfeel and perfect, mild carbonation.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Pours a dark caramel colour. Head is a full fluffy tan colour. Creamy mouthfeel and subtly sweet, not too rich- great taste with a milk chocolate undertone. Touch of smoke and roasted malts.

knights97 (109) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 Has a sweet smell, faint though but pours to a thick, dark brown, almost pitched black. Smooth with a thick malty taste, sweet. Not overpowering in any sense nor bitter in any manner. Great beer
