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.

Dark dark brown with a coffee colored head. Has a sweet chocolaty aroma. Very sweet and smooth. Coffee and chocolate predominate the taste with a slight molasses note. Very glad to see this one in NE finally.

WOW I love this beer, Very easy drinking and just a hint of sweetness, to me stouts are usually something to only drink one a night but this one has excellent drinkability.

Dark brown body with a small, fading tan head. The aroma is light and slightly tart with milk chocolate and molases. The flavor is mildly sweet with somewhat of a sour mash quality, chocolate and lactose. Medium/light body is very thin and watery with a touch of chalkiness on the finish.

Attractive black pour with substantial tan head that fluffs up and then lingers forever. The nose is coffee, chocolate milk and licorice. The flavors follow pretty much as anticipated by the aroma...coffee, chocolate milk, licorice, and a very creamy (milkly) mouthfeel that feels fairly luxurious on the tongue. There is a noticable tartness/sourness in the finish that I’m not sure was intended. OK.

Pours black with a small brown head. Relatively weak aroma, but had a sour base. Quite smooth flavor with roasted malt as the lasting taste and good tingely mouthfee. Creamy flavor with hints of coffee, chocolate and a smokey base. Overall a very quality beer was silky smooth and relatively light for a stout.

For a milk stout the cream note was very light and not a sweet as expected otherwise a good chocolate flavor, would try again.

Dark brown pour with ligh creamy head. Roasted malts and sweet cream flavor. A little tangy in the finish. As my first milk stout I though it was pretty good.

Bottle, pours a brownish/black with a slight rim of a white head, no lacing. Aroma of intense roasted malts with some sweetness. Taste follows the same with mostly roasted malts. Fairly light and mild. Not bad but nothing special.
