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.

How now brown cow! This milk stout pours a dark brown, almost black, and is capped with a beige head redolent with black coffee and tart black cherries. The flavor, however, has no fruity notes and is filled with bitter chocolate and a chalky mocha finish. Medium bodied, this is an easy drinking stout that ends with a bittersweet hop kick. Well done!

Pours almost black with a small white head. Smell is of cream chocolate and some slight caramel notes. Taste is of milk chocalate and some coffee bitterness and some caramel undertones. Doesn’t coat the mouth as much as I’d like but leaves a pleasent milk chocolate aftertaste in your mouth.

The pour is a dark black with a light tan head. There is a lighly roasted aroma and the flavor is mildly sweet with a touch of chocolate and roasted coffee. The finish is mild.

Dark and creamy. Lots of cocoa and some hints of coffee in the malt with just enough hops to balance it.

This pours a deep brown with a minimal head. The aroma is reserved, but you get some light chocolate smells. The mouthfeel is very nice--creamy and smooth. Tastes are light and underwhelming, but nice with some hints of chocolate and sugar.

Dark brown body with a quickly faded head. Great, full, roasty-malted aroma, with a dose of vanilla and wood. I anticipate something creamy from the aroma. Rich, creamy lactose-filled body. Slightly caramel flavor. Very "milky", and overall, a very nice idea of what a sweet stout should be.

This is an amazing creation that should be tried by any sweet stout lover. This is in my top 10 of best beer in existence. Nice milky head, sweet and smooth with a mocha kick - so easy to drink and enjoy, it’s almost like a meal in a bottle.

Sweet malty aroma. Very dark with thick head. Nice thick mouthfeel. Very sweet, a little too sweet for my taste. Still a very good beer, just too sweet for me.

Milky creamy, this one’s strength is how smooth it is. Some nice chocolate notes, but they aren’t as prominent as in other sweet stouts, that hint of creaminess buries the other flavors a bit. At first I thought I detected a metallic edge to it, but that left after a few sips. This beer won’t bowl you over; but it will make you smile.
