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.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 Pours black with a tan head. Very sweet nose with notes of chocolate, fruit, and roasted malt. Medium/full mouthfeel with notes of roasted malt, sweet chocolate and a hint of espresso. This beer exceeded my expectations by far. Very tasty and enjoyable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Aroma of coffee with slight acidic yogurt notes at the end. Looks thin when held to the light, and is practically clear when held to the light. Head is small unless poured vigorously. Flavors are bold but end abruptly. This has a nice combination of residual sweetness and cafe au lait. Definite iodine here too. The combination of flavors occasionally clashes, leaving a strange aftertaste. However, the creamy, silky palate makes up for what the beer lacks in other departments.

12oz bottle. Very good stout. I am usually not one for milk types, but this has a characteristic that is distinguished. Hard chocolate tones with a coffee linger. Pours very well and has the looks of something you’d take home to your parents!

Pours dark, aroma of coffee is present, not much of a head. Over-all the beer wasn’t bad , just not what I was expecting.

Pours a nice dark color, with a big creamy tan head. Aroma is lots of dark chocolate and coffee, delicious. Flavor is more of the same. Very good beer.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 probably my second favorite beer, next to young’s double choclate stout. this is another creamy/sweet stout, but totally different. very smooth, very creamy, very dark and rich. mild head, and no tracing to speak of. looks and tastes (as others said) almost like chocolate milk. very nice balance of malts in this one. this is a very drinkable beer, and one which i will continue to get from time to time. UTTERly delicious!!
