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.

Boutip (5357) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Shp555: Poured a medium black color stout with a medium foamy head with better then average retention. Aroma of light roasted malt with some coffee. Taste is also dominated by some coffee malt with a good lactose feel also noticeable. The creamy texture was very interesting with a nice full body. I thought this beer was well balance between roasted coffee malt and the creamy lactose aspect of it.

Hangover (1094) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Dark pour with a thin tan head. Sweet and intense chocolate aroma with barely discernable roasty notes. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. A lot more coffee comes out towards the middle. Mouthfeel takes on some creaminess and the finish is sweet but not cloying. Nice roasted malt, slightly bitter finish. Pretty good.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2007
A milk stout with a sweet smell, a shy roasty character, and a very watery mouthfeel. Not best of style. Appearance is a dark brown with some red with lots of fluffy head composed of large bubbles. Aroma is slightly sweet, like a latte. But none of that aroma is forwarded into the taste, which is a bit of dark roastiness covered with a lot of wateriness. Mouthfeel is watery, and I don’t find this beer to be highly drinkable. I’m not planning on having this again...it’s not bad, but there are too many other great beers in our wonderful world to spend much time with this one.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Had on tap at Barleys Smokehouse, Columbus...Poured dark brown, nice tan head. This tasted like sweet, light coffee, and roasted nuts...The milk or cream came on the finish...This was such a unique beer, and surprisingly GOOD. I really enjoyed the two very distinct flavors...The coffe was first, and the milk hung around for the finish...My first milk stout...I will definitely have this again!

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 15, 2007
THOUGHTS: Still a bit behind on my ratings. Tried this one on Fat Tuesday. Sweet, creamy aroma with a tiny bit of sourness and some chocolate notes. Sweet chocolate and cream flavor with a little sourness, but a little watery. Nice body but a little thin for a stout. Good flavor but could be richer, but perfect for Fat Tuesday with its extra calories for a stout. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a large tan head that diminished quickly and left good lacing. The body was medium and water for a stout with fizzy carbonation.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2007
This has a nice pour, a dark, clear mahogany with repectable light tan head. Not bad in the lacing department, either. The aroma is a roasted malt-coffee-barley combo with a slight nutty bitterness. Very pleasing, creamy mouthfeel. It tastes of coffee & cream, roasted malts, and a splash of milk chocolate. A sessionable Stout, to be sure.

Rating #3200. Nice music.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Pours black with some red around the edges and a medium cream colored head. Aroma is nice and roasty. Taste is nice and roasty as well, with big cofee flavors, but a tad watery, and with a nice roasty/bitter finish. Not overly sweet or anything, very good.

Not your average stout...but the coffee effect is a little overdone. By that I mean the taste of coffee covers up some of the beerness. Smooth drinking and fairly aromatic but feels like candy not beer.

Dark dark brown with a coffee colored head. Has a sweet chocolaty aroma. Very sweet and smooth. Coffee and chocolate predominate the taste with a slight molasses note. Very glad to see this one in NE finally.

WOW I love this beer, Very easy drinking and just a hint of sweetness, to me stouts are usually something to only drink one a night but this one has excellent drinkability.
