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.

Bottle. Pours black brown. Nice aroma, that smells like cream and coffee. Non aggressive flavor of lightly roasted coffee, lactose, chocolate with subtle hop bitterness. Finishes sweet and crisp. A respectable session brew or one to be enjoyed with ice cream or cake

Maxamillion (103) - Glendora, California, USA - JAN 10, 2006
(Bottle)Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Initial flavor is a sweetish chocolate milk which fades into a coffee finish. Pretty smooth cause of the milk flavor. Pretty good, not amazing but it is a nice change up from the other stouts i’ve been drinking. The milk flavor is almost too much at first but after a couple of sips it isn’t as overpowering.

temporrari (385) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Tap @ Peach’s in Yellow Springs, OH. Dark pour, not quite opaque. Aroma is hidden initially, served too cold. By this point I was also fairly buzzed. But nevertheless, it had a roasty, chocolate aroma. Standard, not bad. Flavor is very smooth and chocolatey, slightly sweet. Good, rich tasting beer. Nice body. Well made, and highly drinkable.

BrockLanders (774) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Poured a dark brown/black...minimal beige head. Nose is quite roasty choco-malty..smells quite good. Flavor is sweet malts, some coffee roast too. Medium-bodied...lotsa lactose here, some bitterness and a tinge of vanilla. Finishes thinner than expected. Not too bad....

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 8, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2007 In the bottle at Bill B.’s birthday party. Ruby-black with a simply beautiful cascading head of down-pouring brown beer and up-flowing bubbles forming a light brown head. Has an extremely strong roasted aroma. Has a strong lactose sweet flavor. Light in hops with a slight sourness. Pretty delicious. UPDATE 6/2007: On tap at Max & Joe’s Left Hand tasting party. Black with a dark tan head. Great roasted aroma. This is thinner than the porter. A strong lactose sweetness emerges toward the warming end.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2006
This beer introduces itself with the hearty aroma of sweet coffee. It is a black liquid with a dark hazel brown head. This solution enters the mouth thick and with a strong coffee taste. The palate enjoys a transformation that goes from mildly bitter to a lingering sweetness.
