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.

very nice. pours practically pitch black with some nice red highlights. thick creamy head, that dissipated very quickly; left some nice lacing. coffee, caramel, chocolate and roasted barley were present in the nose. very pleasing aromas. very sweet with coffee, caramel and chocolate flavors. nice bitter aftertaste. overall, a very nice job by left hand. great stout for after dinner dessert.

Slightly milky with just a hint of chocolate. Texture much thinner than anticipated. Go with Duck Rabbit instead if you’d like to enjoy good sweet stout.

(draft) Not much to say about this beer. Nothing stood out at all. A little thinner than I was expecting. No coffee, no chocolate, no licorice. Just a bit of a milky feel to it. I guess that’s why they call it Milk Stout.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Dark brown with red highlights with a nice of white head and some lacing. Nice roast and chocolate notes in the nose. Big chocolate flavors, nice a silky texture. Almost a little too thin for a stout but still good.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 14, 2005
12oz bottle from JTThrilla. Thanks Jon! Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Bubbles await at the bottom taking turns racing to the surface. Nose is chocolate, roasty. Taste is thin, lactose, roasted malt, finishes bitter and lightly chocolatey in the aftertaste.

Fairly good. Very roasted, heavy chocolate. Lighter color than most stouts, but very thick and creamy. Very tasty brew, but not an easy one to drink.

I was not impressed with this beer. I wanted to like it too, especially after seeing how nice it looked when poured into the glass. Very thin body that leaves one wondering if they actually had drunk anything at all. A very forgettable brew.
