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.

12 oz bottle. Pours reddish-black. Kinda looks like cola. Smells like yesterday’s coffee. It’s got that chocolaty taste. Sweet not bitter. Not bad.

One of the tastiest stouts I’ve had in a long, long time. Really sweet and dunkelish with only a slight hint of roastiness. Terrific.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Deep nut and sugar aroma. Dark brown, with thin whitish brown head and ruby corners. Flavor is a gentle roast with hazlenut, butter and lots of candied nut flavors. Texture is sweet, with a touch of standard dryness. Not much complexity, but deliciously drinkable.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Pours black with a reddish hue, thin tan head. Aroma is faint, sweet chocolate. Flavor starts with mild milk chocolate and finishes roasty. There is a slight milky feel to this which is quite nice. I really enjoyed this.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Draft at the Half Barrel Pub & Cafe in Knoxville. Black in the glass with a very thin tan head. The aroma was faint but chocolate and roastiness picked out. The flavor had milk chocolate, coffee, grass, and wheat. Full body with a creamy texture. Sweet aftertaste.

Dark dark brown, quickly fading head. coffee tastes as well as some chocolate. Has a particular bite, mine has a fair amount of hops and related bitterness. leaves with a respectable finish.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 11, 2006
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.
