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.

Stoned99 (959) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2016
Nitro bottle from Craft Beer Cellar. Aroma: coffee, lactose, a tiny subtle roasted malt. App: dark with red tint, small to medium moka head, great lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, light to medium sweetness, velvety, creamy, light bitter finish. Overall: great band for the bucks! I think I paid around $2.50 for this one. Definitely worth the price. Not a big fan of milk stouts but this is well done. Just a touch of roastiness in the aroma to make it more enjoyable than a typical milk stout makes it stand out. This is really smooth, soft for the palate. A great offering at a great price.

Nitro bottle aggressively poured up a dark black color with a thick tan head. Serious coffee aroma with loads of cocoa, burnt toffee, and roasted hazelnuts. Flavors were similar with some burnt toast, coffee, and gentle lactose sweetness. Thin body, and a slick mouthfeel.

Bottle (the nitro version) from Great Grog. Black body with a dense beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of nuts, charred wood and dark chocolate. Flavour of creamy chocolate, vanilla ice-cream and wood. Medium body with a luscious texture. Very soft fizz. Lacks depth and complexity, but it’s creamy and smooth.
