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.

Nitro bottle. 180 degree pour. Really comes alive. Still has good aroma, but way smoother mouth feel. Flavor is the same, lactose, malt, and little mocha. Give the Co2 version a 3.8, nitro version a 4.0

So-so. A little thin and not massively into the sweetness although its not too pronounced. Nice mellow choc aromas and easy-drinking palate. Its the thinness really..

Augdraught1981 (194) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Super dark brown stout with nothing more than some fizz on an aggressive pour. Delicious & familiar cocoa puff aroma that’s typical with a lot of these sweet / milk stouts. Unreal & substantial flavors of chocolate up front that fades into a smoky tobacco within a very thin body. Super drinkable texture like nothing I can remember having & very interesting.

Minderbinder (2484) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle 355ml. Thx Boismas. Pours very dark brown/black with reddish reflects. Low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of old stale coffee, roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, sugar, lactose. Palate: Medium body. Soft carbonation. Too sweet. Sticky on the lips. Overall: OK, just a tad swilly. Not a big fan of lactose...

Very smooth mouth feel. Well balanced flavour, sweet with little bitterness. Smells appealing but unable to detect the various ingredients from the smell alone. Chocolatey taste with a hint of licorice. Very little head with a black body. Slighly too easy drinking considering it’s ABV but a very pleasant sweet beer.

Had the nitro version in a 12 ounce bottle. Sweet taste but not overly done. The bitterness of this beer isn't very strong.

jamaty (1162) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Negra rojiza, casi opaca. Siquiera dos dedos de espuma ocre, menos densa y duradera que lo normal del estilo. Rico aroma a chocolate. En boca muy cremosa y sabrosa, ligera/media de cuerpo y de gas, pero con un gusto muy potente, de claro carácter de chocolate, y también algo de café. Muy suave y sabrosa. Se disfruta en cada trago.
