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.

Not a bad stout. Aroma, taste and mouthfeel are all good but nothing stands out. But not a bad stout.

[bottle at Pianeta Birra 2006] Quite tasteful, not strong but rich, full and smooth. Chocolate, coffee, reallay a "cappuccino" (milk and coffe with a head) in the world of beers...

Could be named chocolate milk stout and it would make sense to me. Rich, creamy milk chocolate delivered as beer. I liked it. Good malt backbone. lingering mocha.

On tap at Barley’s in Knoxville, TN. Poured a dark black color with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is full of malts with coffee and milk coming through. Flavor is really rich and nice. Tastes somewhat like an oatmeal stout. Coffee, oatmeal, and milk are the main notes. I was definitely surprised by this one.

Cool bottle and logo but the beer is a letdown. It seemed quite thin and watery. Not at all what I was expecting.

Thanks to the person who sentthis to me. Pours brown with a light tan head. Smells of chocolate, cocoa, some yogurt and spices. Tastes of dark chocolate, sweet malt and bitter hoppy elements. Finishes creamy.

Opens up with a mild roasty and milky aroma. Flavors were equally mild, and included roast and caramel qualities. Instead of a hoppy finish, it was very milky and that’s where the beer lives up to its name. Texture was creamy, but thin for me overall. The sweetness was pleasant enough, but a bit too milky for me, and I felt that element was a bit outcast. Unique, but does it work? Not sure.
