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.

12 oz. bottle courtesy/shared with Naka. Pours black/brown with prominent amber hues. Small, rimming, off-white head. Nose of leftover, Oreo-infused, dunking milk. Heavy spoiled lactose with roast, chocolate, and toffee. Raosty body with a chocolatey malted milk ball taste. Thin body with sweet chocolate and caramel, little fruit, lots of lactose. Barring the nose, this stuff is pretty tasty.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Pours a really dark brown / blackish with a bit of a reddish hue. The aroma is a sweet chocolate with a very obvious milky scent, maybe milk that has been left on the counter an hour too long. Has a really dark roasted coffee flavor with some caramel and a finish of room temperature malted milk. Very sweet. Not a whole lot of carbonation, but fizzes to a nice creamy texture in the mouth.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
Bottle from a 6 pack. Black with a lot of red, small white head. Really good aroma - milk chocolate dominates - you would swear there is chocolate added. Great taste to I am happy to report - Lots of milk chocolate. Great medium well carbonated mouth feel accentuates the flavours. So smooth. Just a wonderful stout that I could drink all night.

Svesse (7680) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2008
(Bottle) Almost black colour with a reddish hue, frothy pale brown head. Roasted, malty nose with coffee, chocolate, soy sauce, liquorice, roasted nuts and a hint of tar. Roasted, almost burnt, malty taste with chocolate, cream, soy sauce, caramel and cappuccino. Nutty, creamy, not very bitter finish. Medium body, rather short. Nice and tasty beer.

bottle - Pours black with a thin tan head. This beer smells like chocolate milk. Seriously. And once that idea got into my head, I couldn’t think of anything else when I smelled it. It’s a nice, substantial aroma, but it’s definitely chocolate milk. Fortunately the flavor has some good roast malt to go with the chocolate and milk. It also finishes with some mild bitterness. It’s medium bodied, creamy, and pretty enjoyable.

sethdude (706) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Pours oily black with a medium tan head. Aroma is great, milk chocolate and mild hop "pepper". Flavor is equally good, lots of chocolate, moments of coffee bitterness, a good sour lactic note, tobacco, and peppery hops at the end. Very nice, and not overdone like too many stouts these days.

FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2008
12 ounce bottle- everything I DO NOT like about a stout. Strong, bitter and acidic. It poured out dark brown to black with a hearty and long lasting head. The aroma was toasty. Had a bitter coffee flavor with none of the subtle under taste of a really good stout. It was okay, but not much more.
