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.

Bottle. Aroma of dark, roast chocolate, nuts, milk/milk chocolate, coffee. Black wih a thick and lacing foamy brown head that reminded me of the mattresses I’d seen the day before. Taste is all about roast and chocolate, the milk (chocolate milk) notes arrive fashionably late and stay until long after the party has ended. Sweet and malty but not cloying. Light spiciness underneath the coffee. Medium-thin mouthfeel with a light underlying roasty/yeasty grit, but on the whole, very creamy and smooth. Balanced, with great interplay between the roast and milk. Dries toward the finish and into the long aftertaste. Straightforward and rather enjoyable - I’m quite a fan of this one.

Bottle (12oz). Courtesy of my secret santa. At a decent temperature, poured an incredibly deep, almost opaque ruby with a large fluffy-foamy tan head, lasted quite a while. Nice rich nutty roast malt aroma, some cafe au lait and a very mild hint of chocolate, faint herbal hops, nice and dry but definitely roasty-sweet. The taste is very lactic, soft sweetened coffee with lots of cream, nutshell roast malt, some bitterness trying to balance, but it finishes sweet and rich, if a touch mild. Fairly thick and creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation, nice soft finish on the palate, feels very nice - overall somewhat mild, but on-style and no flaws to me (I often get metal in this style).

Bottle served cold, at Electro Lounge, Good malty aroma, warm and rich flavor, very creamy and chocolatey, light to no hop presence, but very malty and chocolate with touches of carmel. Pours nice and dark with moderate brown head. Palate is lghter than I would have expected. Not too bad at all.

Creamy, mild chocolatey taste, with a hint of sweet caramel. Not as robust as I would expect, but is refreshing and enjoyable. Some roasted malt with a mild hop finish.

Bottle. Thanks Kenb. Aroma light coffee and toasty malts. Poured a nice dark black with a tan head. Flavor is good, lactic sugars mix nicely with the coffee and malt base. Palate is easy drinking smooth. What’s not too like?

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2006 Wow, this brew is great. Tastes almost like chocolate milk. Definatley smells like it. Has a nice milk chocolate color with a small tannish head. Would be perfect on a cold night, too bad we never have those here.

Incredible stout. The title does not lie, it really does remind one of chocolate milk. Thick malty/molasses nose. Body is creamy and smooth with some sweetness.

decaturstevo (4979) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2006
A thin looking dark brown pour, with an aroma of coffee and toasted malt. A slightly sweet flavor with chocolate and coffee. A nice bitter finish. A much fuller palate than expected. A pretty good middle of the road stout. A beer I would drink a sixer of anytime.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2006
Draught@Redbones, Boston. This was decent, but perhaps a touch sweet. Some nice chocolate and caramel sweetness, slightly sugary. Finish is roasty enough and dries it up a little bit, which makes it pleasant to drink.
