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 from a nitro bottle, beer has little nose, and tastes like foam at first. It’s the super smoothness of the finish of this stout that is so special, succulent, like candy. Too much of a good thing...

Opaque dark brown with minimal head. Wonderfully intertwined scent consisting of dark chocolate, roast, and malt. Absolutely delectable. Dark chocolate, malt, roast, cream, with a mild lingering bitterness. Roast is most apparent taste several seconds after. One of my favourites.

Smooth with good flavor; however, taste seems muted. Would drink again, but will not be my primary stout. (Drank with nothing else)

Good middle of the road stout. An almost automatic pick up when I’m heading out to a friend’s house.

Backlog. On tap at Green Lion Inn. Dominated by sour milk. This is seriously one of the worst beers i’ve had, it’s just not for me.

tap. Black with small nitro head. Very smooth, accentuated by the nitro. Big chocolate malt. Quite good for the style.

aphalo (93) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Colour is clear, dark but not really black. Aroma has coffee, chockolate and creamy milk in it. Flavour has mild coffee notes, some hints of cocoa. Palate is watery, light carbonated body. Nothing too special: overall ok, but not the best milk stout.

Poured from a bottle vigorously into a bar pint glass per instruction. The pour is quite a beautiful sight to see and almost worth the price of admission, $2.29 per bottle. The beer pours black with an abundant creamy head that recedes but never retreats, finally settling in on a quarter inch of khaki foam. Light lacing. Aroma is coffee and chocolate and dark roasty malts. Creamy chocolate and black coffee reign supreme in the flavor. The beer ends with a pleasant sweet finish and a tiny bit of bitterness.

Beer has a subtle aroma but some roast and hops mixed together. The texture is awesome. Very rich and creamy. The taste is smooth and complex with lots of interesting tidbits for senses to pick up.
