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.

Cool bottle and logo but the beer is a letdown. It seemed quite thin and watery. Not at all what I was expecting.

Thanks to the person who sentthis to me. Pours brown with a light tan head. Smells of chocolate, cocoa, some yogurt and spices. Tastes of dark chocolate, sweet malt and bitter hoppy elements. Finishes creamy.

Opens up with a mild roasty and milky aroma. Flavors were equally mild, and included roast and caramel qualities. Instead of a hoppy finish, it was very milky and that’s where the beer lives up to its name. Texture was creamy, but thin for me overall. The sweetness was pleasant enough, but a bit too milky for me, and I felt that element was a bit outcast. Unique, but does it work? Not sure.

starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Pure brown colour, dark with a tan head. Aroma is sour milk and coffee. Thick mouthfeel, more coffee and malts in the flavour. Very drinkable but not very appetizing.

Draught - Flying Saucer Germantown - Pours a rich deep brown with a creamy tan head. It has a very smooth palate of flavors and is great with bar food. I had to pace myself so I could watch the game before passing out. I would recommend this to any dark beer lover.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 On tap @ Red Bones. Pours a dark brown mahogany color with tan head. Aroma is sweet malts and coffee. This sucker has one of the best palates of any beer. It’s like drinking cream. Sweet milk, coffee, burnt toffee, and a hint of chocolate. I gave my buddy a taste and he threatened to chug it if I didn’t take it away. It’s definitely beer, but it makes you want to gulp it like cold milk.

LH has cool labels stylistically. This is mediocre. Slab City’s Stout Ale is quite similar but much better. This is just bit too sweet, sour, uneven and flavours do not hit home. Might benefit from bit more carbonation.
