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 via trade with Rich. a wonderful sweet stout aroma. hints of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. nothing complex going on here but still a good beer. I prefer a more full mouthfeel but the flavor was quite nice. Thx Rich.

Nice opaque reddish pour with a very thin tan head. Smells like coffee and roasted malt. Flavor is strongly dominated by the roast with coffee overtones. I’m not getting the chocolate notes other people mentioned. Palate was thinner than I’d hoped, but still good. Overall could have had a more bitter finish, but good.

Reddish-dark (opaque) brown with little dots of filmy head and no ring around the glass interior. Sweet and roasty aroma with some plum and apple (not acetaldehyde). Interesting flavour that’s a blend of sweet apple and roast with notes of coffee and floral hops that ends in a bitter malt finish. Smooth feel with low to mild carbonation and a medium body.

this is an easy drink’n stout, sounds like an oximoron...but its true. nice espresso bean flavor, choc malt and vanilla sweetness. silkiness on the palate. has sugar upfront to push the flavor to the posterior. slightly thin but quite good. a great compliment to the spicy thai food i was eating.

Bottle. Bottled on 6/22/04. Pours a DEEP mahogany with thin light tan head. Aroma is of roasty malts, cocoa, vanilla and milk chocolate. Taste begins with sweet malts and sugars and finishes with a roasty bitterness. Carbonation is high but this still manages to be smooth throughout. Not as full and flavorful as other milk stouts I’ve had.

On tap. Dark brown color, thin off-white head. Aroma of fruit, mild floral hops, roast tobacco. Sweet, but not as much as others in the milk stout field. Medium body for the style, some hints of chocolate, tobacco, berries. A pleasant slightly above average stout.

Just did not go down well for me. Color is a little weird, too. Like a dark brown smudge. Perhaps I was looking for something else with this beer, found it quite sour and technically lacking.

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.

poured black with little to no head. Very little carbonation.. Creamy mouthfeel. Little roasty taste with a bit of chocolate. Not much flavor.
