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.

Pours a very dark brown with hints of garnet and a fairly small, tan, fizzy-pillowy head with moderate longevity and minimal, but nice, lace. Nose is milk chocolate, oatmeal, minor coffee notes, and hints of hazlenut. Flavor is milk chocolate, dark caramels, moderately low bitterness due mostly to the coffee hints, and a touch of hazlenut still. Palate is moderately light, lively, but quite silky. Fnishes short and mostly sweet with dark caramels and a lingering hazlenut note. Nice, solid, drinkable sweet stout from a local brewery. The beer thrives off of its texture and nice lactic notes creating a smooth, easy drinking stout.

Black pour. Halo of lace is left behind after the tan head quickly fades. Coffee & roasted malt on the nose, also hints of sweetness. Even, full mouthfeel. Subtle coffee/chocolate flavor. Slightly sweet finish with a bit of bitterness. Very smooth and easy drinking.

Touche (57) - New York, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Dark stout, 2 fingers tan head. smelled of malt and raisins. This was no where near as thick as i had expected (and hoped for) Taste is thin taste of malt, toasted choco, and carmel, doesn’t taste as complex as i had thought either. good stout just expected more. probably wouldn’t buy again.

A very dark stout with a tan head. The smell is of cream sugar chocolate, malt and a hint of vanilla. the taste is of malt, chocolate milk brown sugar, a bit of floral and vanilla and spice. Very velvety creamy mouth feel. A smooth finish that has a hint of bitterness. I Like this beer very much

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Bottle Black pour with decent light head. Quick thinning, but good lacing. Light aroma of sweet roasted malt. Very sweet flavor, can even taste a bit of milk. Very thin mouthfeel though. Good, but not great.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2007
Part of a bottle. Black with thin head. Roasted, chocolate and caramel. Quite thin for a stout and quite low alcohol which is good for a change.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2008 it reminded me of an old rasputin yet a little thinner and less alcohol involved. great beer nonetheless
