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.

Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Sweetish mealy fruity chocolatey aftertaste with perfumy roasty notes. Nice, drinkable, but could perhaps have a little more character.

12oz. bottle into pint glass. Pours a dark brown with thin tan head that dissipates very quickly. The aroma is of milk, butter and some malts. Flavor is very sweet upon first hitting your mouth with hints of butter-toffee and finishes with a slight bitterness. Creamy overtones are present throughout. Has a smooth, lacey mouthfeel. Very good and very drinkable.

On tap : Very dark pour with a huge brown head and awesome lacing. A milky nose on this one. I wasnt impressed much by the flavor, mainly cause i didnt find much there. Also the body was a little thin for a stout. Its ok, just not wonderful.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2007
10/20/07 On draught at Uber, Seatle. Aroma is very sweet creamy roast malt, just about perfect. Appearance is dark brown/black with a medium off-white head. Flavor is sweet roast malt forward, very well blended and slightly sour, but not objectionable. Mouthfeel is medium/high bodied with a low carb feel. Overall, very good and very easy drinking, I like this style, but often find it tough to plow through more than one; good job left hand for getting me to ask for another.

Bottle. Dark/black. Good head that disappears after a while. Fresh smell. Light-bodied with sweet taste of coffee and chocolate. I would have liked a tad more bitterness.

pilsnerrogge (2829) - Finspång, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2007
Deep mahogany red, almost black, colour. Dense head. Sweet, slightly roasted, chocolate aroma; smells great. Roasted flavour with notes of coffee and chocolate. With a little more body this would’ve been a great stout, now it’s "just" pleasant.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2007
(35.5cl bottle) Dark mahogany colour with a medium-sized beige foamy head. Slightly sweet, moderately roasted grainy malt aroma with dark and milk-chocolate and an aromatic, herbal, slightly woody hops presence. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Moderately roasted malty taste with chocolate and hints of coffee/mocha; smooth and almost lingering sweet-bitter finish with light hoppy accents and notes of chocolate and coffee in the aftertaste. Quaffable, unfortunately hard-to-get Stout (at least in Central Europe).

My 100th rating. I wish I could have it be a better beer. Aroma of sour milk and soy sauce. Thin white head and great DARK color. On the bitter side for taste.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2007
On tap at Quenchers Chicago. Opaque black with the smallest tan head. Aroma is pretty roasty and sweet. Flavor is really sweet that is very lactosey, very light roasted malt also help contribute to this very drinkable but sweet/milk stout. Medium body and creamy. Not bad, but very sweet.

Inky black pour with a fantastic tan head that sat around for awhile. Sweet thick flavor with clean crisp finish. Fantastic carbonation. Love milk stouts Probably my new favorite. This is a good one.
