COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800ís. 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 benefitsÖsorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year Ďround stout.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2009 Draft at Nama. Two finger head, not much aroma - maybe overpowered by restaurant food smells. Mostly opaque ebony with copper highlights. Not as much body as most stouts, not much sweetness in my tasting either. Mostly coffee on the beginning and end, but balanced out nicely.

I didnít realize there are so many milk stouts out there. This is the only one Iíve tried, so perhaps discount my opinion, but this is one of the most delicious beers Iíve had. It drinks ridiculously smooth. It feels heavy (creamy) as you drink it, but doesnít ífill you upí as youíd think it would. Most stouts, Iíd rather drink with food. Not necessary with this one.

Left Handís stout pours a dark brown, murky body with an average, fizzy light-brown head. Fair lacing behind a fully diminishing body. Aroma is of toasted/roasted coffee malts and medicine. Initial taste is moderately sweet, giving way to a light bitter finish with an average duration. Light to medium on the mouth, it has a watery texture not wanted in a stout, with soft carbonation. Yummy aroma, very satisfying finish, but not true to the style. Reviewed on October 27th, 2006.

(bottle)poured into a pint. pours dark with light tan frothy head that is not too thick. has a malty, milky aroma. taste is slightly sweet on the front, light in the middle, and a milky finish. on the front palate it has a little tingle, some carbonation that hits the front of your tongue, and it is not too thick. has a slightly milky aftertaste. This is a good milk stout, in a side by side with duck rabbitís version this one holds up better. it is smoother and cleaner.

Dark black color, short lasting foamy tan head. Aroma of coffee. Semisweet chocolate and coffee flavors. Slight tang in the finish. I donít care too much for this characteristic in Milk Stouts, even though it is standard. Overall a smooth easy drinking beer. Personally I donít enjoy the "sour milk" lactose-ness.

12 oz bottle, bottled date says "12". What is that? 1912? December? The 12th day of a mystery month? Anyway, pours into my English pint glass almost black with a beige head. Big roasty nose, coffee and chocolate. Somewhat sweet flavor, Roasty coffee, semisweet chocolate, light lactic notes. Very smooth body, medium full. Sweet milk chocolate finish. Well done!

alobar (2762) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Pours black with no head. Aroma of roasted malts and milk sugar. Heavy beer! Taste is bitter upfront with a sweet caramel-like finish. This could be your only meal of the day.

Pours opaque and black with a thin light brown head. The aroma is dark and burnt - like burnt toast with rich espresso. The flavor is bitter and rich with a little sweetness. It isnít as sweet as some others in the style (like Mackeson). Very well balanced. Smooth rich, coffee flavor with a little hops, some yeast, and a little sweet malt. The finish is somewhat dry and bittersweet.

Really like this beer! True to style. Pours with a nice foamy thick head, which, while it doesnít last too long, does persist some. Ditto lace. Lactose just offsets the stout. Nice carbonation. Almost opaque. lingering bittersweet taste. Having this now on draft at Bodega Brew Pub, where itís also available in bottles.
