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.

Draught at Ginger Man, Dallas
Dark brown to black color. Aroma of roasted malt. Smooth, with a taste of malt, caramel and some roasted malt. More bodied than other Stouts, a bit sweeter, quite good.

An excellent dessert beer. Not hoppy. Slightly sweet. Beautiful coffee/chocolate color, a hint of oatmeal, malty. To be sipped and enjoyed next to a fire. Nice to find in places outside of Colorado, since this style isnt made by many domestic brews.

Aroma of licorice, coffee and roasted malt. Dark black, not too much head. Flavor was of roasted/burned malt and some licorice. Pretty good mouth feel; would have more complex flavors.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 (Bottled) Very dark brown with a medium, beige head and some lace. Milky-sourish, licorice-roasty aroma with hints of burnedness and milk chocolate. Flavor of slightly burned, roasty and sweetish malt, with hints of chocolate, and a medium-dry finish. Medium to full-bodied, silky-smooth palate. A pleasant and silky-smooth stout, but could be more complex.

Smells sweet, lots of chocolate....very nice tan lace left on the glass. A thinner stout than many others, but falls into the sweet stout land nicely. I’m pleased with this brew and I’m glad I was the recipient of more than one. Tasty, particularly a it warms.

Very nice stout. Pours black with a lasting tan head. Dark chocolate and coffee aroma. Flavor is rich chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is thick but it’s not too sweet.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Draught pint at the Moan and Dove, Amherst MA. Inky-black pour with a decent dark creamy stable tan head, nicely lasting....superbly balanced aroma of dark and sweet chocolates, prunes, raisins and a touch of port mingling with just a hint of espresso, would be just delightful if it were a bit stronger....body is nicely done as well, with a mouthfeel that veers perilously close to the dull cardboardiness I find in a lot of lower-grav stouts but just escapes it; moderate amounts of bittersweet chocolate vie with light fresh coffee for dominance, subtle and sweet dried fruits keep their distance....overall a great pleasure and easy to drink, but a little more fullness of body and expression in the nose would have turned this into something special.
