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.

Pours deep mahogany into an English pint. Off white pancake batter head does not recede. Dark chocolate and espresso aromas. Slightly thin and tingly with a sour chocolate finish.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours inky black, with a smallish tan colored head. Aroma is chocolate, sweet rosted malt, coffee. Flavor is the same. Palate is medium, dissapointing for a stout, mildly carbonated, sweet finish. Nothing spectacular.

Draught at Ginger Man, Dallas
Dark brown to black color. Aroma of roasted malt. Smooth, with a taste of malt, caramel and some roasted malt. More bodied than other Stouts, a bit sweeter, quite good.

targhee (30) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2007
An excellent dessert beer. Not hoppy. Slightly sweet. Beautiful coffee/chocolate color, a hint of oatmeal, malty. To be sipped and enjoyed next to a fire. Nice to find in places outside of Colorado, since this style isnt made by many domestic brews.

alexanderj (3527) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Aroma of licorice, coffee and roasted malt. Dark black, not too much head. Flavor was of roasted/burned malt and some licorice. Pretty good mouth feel; would have more complex flavors.

Tranquillity (1788) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2007
I preferred the Black JAck porter. Nice spicy aroma. Cardemon, connamon. Medium-roasted. Dark brown/black colour with a small medium-brown head. Thick palate, nice smooth flavours. A bit milky even.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 (Bottled) Very dark brown with a medium, beige head and some lace. Milky-sourish, licorice-roasty aroma with hints of burnedness and milk chocolate. Flavor of slightly burned, roasty and sweetish malt, with hints of chocolate, and a medium-dry finish. Medium to full-bodied, silky-smooth palate. A pleasant and silky-smooth stout, but could be more complex.

Smells sweet, lots of chocolate....very nice tan lace left on the glass. A thinner stout than many others, but falls into the sweet stout land nicely. I’m pleased with this brew and I’m glad I was the recipient of more than one. Tasty, particularly a it warms.
