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.

bennetporter (48) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Poured from a bottle a nice rich opaque dark with a slim head the color of a coffee milkshake. Tastes not unlike a malted either. Good but not out of this world.

Mainuh_man (238) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2014
16 Oz tap. Pours black with a frothy tan head. Tons of coffee and roasted aromas on the nose. Flavor is sweet, cereal grain, and lots of coffee. Long, chalky roasted malt linger. Full body with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, really tasty sweet stout. Coffee dominates, but good malt character.

12oz nitro bottle into pint glass. Semi tight half finger of nearly creamy head, almost pitch black in the glass. Notes of coffee and oats, cream and roasted dark malts on the nose, same on palate but with strong notes of sour and bitter. Feels especially alive in the throat. Solid finish, consistent all the way. An excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Case (256) - GERMANY - DEC 3, 2014
Pours dark black with no head and just a bit of lacing. Aroma is full of milk chocolate, coffee, light tartness. Taste is roasty-sweet with caramel up front but quickly turns bitter with delicious dark chocolate. Ends dry. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body. Fantastic, I just wished it had a proper head.

peponi (459) - POLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Aroma: chocolate, Belgium pralines, lactose, cherry in chocolate, coffee. Appearance: dark brown color, nice beige head. Taste: low bitterness, roasted malts, bitfer chocolate, coffee, semi dry and watery, rum. Palate: medium body and low carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: aroma much better than taste, what is quite disappointing. Not bad.

Nice taste! But if bitter at the end there. Beautiful dark coloring and just enough sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An extremely solid creamy smooth stout that's several cuts above Guinness, Murphy's, Young's..., and at $10 and change for six bottles, a tremendous bargain... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
