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.

58F. Slow to mount CO2 froth that never really humps the galss all that well. Looks a little thin, but gets a bonus for the logo. I smell dry currants and elderberries, and fresh millk. Those blackened malts rough up the palate, then smooth it out with minerally ash and lighter roasted barley flour. With a dropper squeeze a few drops of black cherry juice in grain alcohol on your tongue. This manages to be smooth, not exactly creamy, more like 2% milk.

Near black but not opaque. Small tan head. Aroma of coffee. Flavor is sweet coffee and cola. Slightly tart with a little fizzy tingle on the tongue, but not distracting. Not especially complex but the flavor is good and the body is decent. Pretty good. I bought a six and I doubt they will last long.

From a winter sampler pack. Kind of a heavy, satisfying brew. When I just started to really enjoy the beer, it was gone. Will purchase again.

Not fully opaque but very dark with a little tan head. Roasted malt and a malt sweetness in the aroma. Nice full body, sweet and smooth with a chocolatey finish.

clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Creamy mouthfeel, big chocolate and coffee undertones. Almost tasted like a chocolate mocha milkshake in a wierd way, although obviously much thinner. A little too thin,but very smooth. Very solid.

bottle. deep black in appearance with a small mocha head. aroma is largely of coffee and the same can be said about the flavour. quite sweet and bitter. You can taste a bit of milk flavour towards the end. This is a rather decent stout, though not great.
