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.

Coffe colored. Intense smell of chocolate and dark malt. Sweet and round but not much bitterness. Like a christmas beer.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

A deep dark brown color with a thin head. The aroma was that of a deep rich dark malts and chocolate and coffee. The flavors where also deep and rich and this was a great stout. Loved the rich dark malts and the smooth silky taste. This could be used with some ice cream and would be a great beer float. A great cooking beer also. This was a wonderful beer.

Bottle. Medium high but lasting light brown fluffy head. Well its not pitch black but its close to. Coffee aroma, good and simple maybe just a hint of chocoolate. Flavor of coffee, choccolate pretty mild though. Little bitterness, long aftertaste. Pretty good for a beer with such a relatively low alcohol percentage.

Smells earthy and like caramel, very sweet. Pours an opaque black with a small tan head. Taste is sweet chocolate with coffee. Very thick and flavorful. A tasty stout I’d like have again.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2007 Bottle. This beer is great! Aroma of chocolates. Flavor is very creamy, chocolates, with a almost milkshake familiarity to it. I have to say it’s very easy to consume and I’ll be looking into this one in the future.

Bottle, poured dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavor is nice, like a chocolate milkshake. Body, however, is thin and almost watery. I guess that makes it drinkable, but I was hoping for something with a little more substance. Good beer though.

Pours black with brown highlights and a relatively small head. Malty chocolate aroma; chocolate milkshake (well, vanilla soft serve w/ chocolate syrup at least) milkshake flavors. Gentle hop bite on the short side of the close, returning to bittersweet chocolate on the long end. Easy drinking save for a somewhat prickly fine carbonation.

Quite drinkable even if not particularly adventurous or challenging.

Light brown and hazy. Aroma of chocolate and almond, and lots of starch. The body is a bit thin. Profile is mainly chocolatey but kind of vague with the thin nuttiness of a mailed-in brown ale. It’s okay, but not nearly full enough for a milk stout.

I was at a beer dinner in Rocky Point, NY on Wednesday when I passed this on the bar and I had been meaning to try it. I bought a round for my table of this special stout and I inhaled the delightful chocolate aroma as I passed the tray full around. The first taste of the medium to heavy stout erupted with a great malty taste that just invited comparison to the local Southampton Stouts. Like a fat bitter milkshake of a beer, the last ounce told me to open at least two more for me. My next thoughts were to find this on tap as it could be a step closer to being one of my favorites.
