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.

alexanderj (3334) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2007
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.

I preferred the Black JAck porter. Nice spicy aroma. Cardemon, connamon. Medium-roasted. Dark brown/black colour with a small medium-brown head. Thick palate, nice smooth flavours. A bit milky even.

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.

Dubbercody (213) - Vancouver, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2007
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.

thefederalist (294) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - JAN 10, 2007
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.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2007 Bottle. Black and just barely translucent. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Tastes the same. Its sweetness is nicely balanced by the bittering hops. It dwells in the mouth, very creamy. Very refreshing and enjoyable stout. Perfect for cold weather.

nolankowal (932) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Bottle. Black pour with an off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee, and some chocolate. Flavor of some light fruits, coffee, chocolate, and roaste4d malt...perhaps a tinge of hazlenut. Light body for a stout, though this seems the norm for this brewer...nice carbonation though and finishes clean.
