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.

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.

Wow this is rich! Like drinking a slightly chilled chocolate milk iced mocha. I would like this more if it were not so syrupy sweet, but it still makes a hearty sweet stout. Finishes soft and bittersweet, with just a bit of roastiness.

Pours a black clear body leaving a thick creamy head. The aroma is light, sweet, malted milk, and caramel. The taste is very fresh feeling, it starts syrupy sweet so nice and smooth followed by a milk sweetness with a coffee chocolate essence to round it out. It is balanced by a nice spicy hop effort that really compliments this sweet stout. The beer finishes again milky sweet, this is a session quality stout. I will be drinking this all year around.

Creamy, malty nose. Pours black with a big light tan head. Coffee, vanilla, roasted malts, sweet flavor. Very smooth finish.
