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.

Pours a dark brown to black with a smooth chocolatey aroma and a tan head. The taste starts with light chocolate and finishes with a lingering hint of coffee. Smooth with mild carbonation.

Carbonated dark brown-black body with a brownish tinted head. Decent dark roast aroma and a flavor of the dark roast, and some chocolate, but with some definite lactose sourness to it. Decent body. Fairly smooth.

ThaBobfather (178) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Nice chocolate, malty smell. Much like a snickers bar. Dark milky appearance. Bit of coffee on the front. Leaves a bitter coffee on the tounge. Not as good as I wanted it to be.

tiffanya (45) - Federal Way, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2008
12-oz bottle from 99 Bottles. One of my favorites; similar to Widmer’s Snow Plow only more substantial mouth-feel and more chocolate! Smooth, sweet, and creamy. Roasty malts start out like dark cocoa at initial pour out of the fridge and move toward milk chocolate as the beer moves toward room temperature. Hints of coffee.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2008
A very dark, almost black colored beer, with a thick beige foamed head. An aroma of chocolate, and coffee, also a little sweet in the back. The taste soft chocolate, mild coffee, little sweet. In the back bitterness and a dry after taste. A good beer.

Poured a dark brown with a cream colored head. Goes down incredibly smooth. I really enjoyed how it went down with a creamy and sweet taste. Stays on the tongue for a little bit after drinking it. The roasted malt is noticeable and has a nice taste of the chocolate in it. I recommend this to those who enjoy the creamier stouts.

mansquito (5188) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Pours really dark with a fat tan head. Aroma was nice, full of chocolate, sugars, and roasted malts. Taste was sweet and bitter at the same time. Tastes like candy and beer, but in a very good way. Pretty thick. A fun good beer.

Pours a dark brown with a small brown head. Flavor is nothing to write home about but still enjoyable, just nothing amazing. After swallowing you have that left over creaminess comparable to when you drink a tall glass of milk. Kind of weird at first if you haven’t had a milk stout before, but once you get used to it it’s nice and can be enjoyable. Some people can’t get used to it, and I can understand why. A unique beer that could be amazing if the recipe was tweaked a bit to offer a more robust flavor and more pleasant aroma. Would recommend only for the unique experience of this beer, and not so much for the overall taste, aroma, etc...

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - APR 30, 2008
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Not that pleasant. Not bad either, but quite boring overall. Roasted malt and milk chocolate in the taste. I think the flavor is too sweet and overall, quite thin. On the other hand, an okay beer but I will not buy it again.
