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.

This beer pours a nice dark color to it with good head retention. There is a nice sweet milky smell to it. There is a good woody taste and very smooth and goes down easy.

A solid sweet stout-aroma of roasted malt, coffee. Flavor is coffee, dark chocolate, licorice and malt. Body seems a little light for a stout but otherwise tasty. Dark walnut color. A keeper.

First milk stout I’ve ever had. Black pour with light tan lasting head. Smelled of roasted malts. Flavor is dominated by malted milk, with some smokey chocolate. Not too complex but I strongly enjoyed.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Poured in a pint glass with a thin fizzy mocha colour head and dark brown body. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, and roasted malts. Medium Body. Initial taste is smokey,coffee, with a finishing of a sweet roastiness.Lasthing thin head minor lacing of the glass. High carbonation but compliments the beer which unnoticible is unless looked at closely.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2007
The color was dark chocolate. The head was thin, fizzy, and medium beige. The aroma was sweet, roasty/smokey, and molasses. The flavor was very roasty, coffee, slightly waxy, and sweet malt. The palate was medium/thick bodied. The finish was roasty. The flavor of this beer was very strong for a stout. It closer in taste to a weak imperial stout.

CheersMate (1312) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - APR 22, 2007
Had this beer on tap at an Atlanta bar. This beer was actually pretty good. Black body and a nice head that quickly faded away. This beer had moments where it tasted pretty thin. The beer actually had the taste of milk I was very surprised. This beer was nice and sweet, coffee notes, and a decent taste. Nice palate. I would try this beer again I was happy.

Does kinda taste like chocolate milk. Very little bitterness, but enough to keep it from being cloying and flabby. Nice, but not great.

Well this was ok... It didn’t have the stronger and complex tastes I enjoy. It had some coffe taste in it but the flavors went away rather quickly and didn’t linger on anyside of my palate for an extended period of time. On a more positive note I would drink it again. It was really smooth with a nice feeling in your mouth it had a funny carbonation feeling to it.
