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.

Bottle served cold, at Electro Lounge, Good malty aroma, warm and rich flavor, very creamy and chocolatey, light to no hop presence, but very malty and chocolate with touches of carmel. Pours nice and dark with moderate brown head. Palate is lghter than I would have expected. Not too bad at all.

Creamy, mild chocolatey taste, with a hint of sweet caramel. Not as robust as I would expect, but is refreshing and enjoyable. Some roasted malt with a mild hop finish.

Bottle. Thanks Kenb. Aroma light coffee and toasty malts. Poured a nice dark black with a tan head. Flavor is good, lactic sugars mix nicely with the coffee and malt base. Palate is easy drinking smooth. What’s not too like?

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2006 Wow, this brew is great. Tastes almost like chocolate milk. Definatley smells like it. Has a nice milk chocolate color with a small tannish head. Would be perfect on a cold night, too bad we never have those here.

Incredible stout. The title does not lie, it really does remind one of chocolate milk. Thick malty/molasses nose. Body is creamy and smooth with some sweetness.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2006
A thin looking dark brown pour, with an aroma of coffee and toasted malt. A slightly sweet flavor with chocolate and coffee. A nice bitter finish. A much fuller palate than expected. A pretty good middle of the road stout. A beer I would drink a sixer of anytime.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2006
Draught@Redbones, Boston. This was decent, but perhaps a touch sweet. Some nice chocolate and caramel sweetness, slightly sugary. Finish is roasty enough and dries it up a little bit, which makes it pleasant to drink.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2006

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 12 oz bottle. Average size bubbly amber head leaving a lot of lace. Dark brown almost black (with a deep red tint) color brew. Very plesant toasted sweet malty caramel and vanilla aroma. Lightly roasted chocolate/caramel/coffe flavors with a hint of fruitiness (not sure what fruit...raisins or plums maybe.) Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Medium body. Very nice bitterweet mocha aftertaste. Could stand to be just a bit thicker, but overall a very plesant sipping experience.
