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.

Very smooth with almost imperceptible hops flavoring. As a black coffee lover this is a great beer. Creamy with very little carbonation makes drinking them too easy – the 5.3% catches up quickly. A step-down from Mackeson in intensity but an awesome beer.

kringlan (20) - Falun, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2007
Black/dark brown with reddish reflections. Small off-white head. Good lacing. Sweet aroma of chocolate, nuts coffee and milk. Lively palate. Quite watery i.e. not very stouty. Not a lot of aftertaste; the little there is is sweet. Flavor of chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, filmjölk (Swedish equivalent to butter milk). Actually , this is probably what a “coffee-with-milk-drinker” would like. I think this beer would make an excellent accompaniment to some chocolaty desert.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Pours a thick black with a large foamy tan head which dissipates rather quickly, leaving plenty of lacing. Aroma is strongly chocolate, with some coffee and dark roasts. Taste is rich chocolate with a little coffee. The taste is not bitter or harsh like an Impy but flat and smooth, like an alcoholic nesquick. A sessionable stout.

malrubius (2185) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 8, 2007
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Dark brown/black with brown head and lace. Chocolate and chocolate chip cookie aroma. Medium chocolate flavor with complex hints of cinnamon and raisins. Nice mild bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. An excellent sessionable stout, and I happen to like stout sessions.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 8, 2007
35cl bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a tan head. Roasty, sweet milk-chocolate aroma. Flavor is a lot of chocolatey, sweet roasted malts, maybe a little coffee, but not very bitter overall. Palate is full and creamy. Really dug the milk-chocolate.

From bottle. Nice, dark color. Small head. Had a definite caramel taste which was OK. It wasn’t a bad flavor, it just that there’s not much else to it. I did enjoy how silky this beer was.
