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.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2006 Bottled
Dark ruby, small off-white head. Quite typical sweet milk stout aroma, a bit roasted. Sweet, lightly roasted, easy to drink, but too sweet for my liking. Some light hops in the aftertaste. (7/4/6/3/12 3.2)
Opaque black, very small head. Strong roasted dark milk chocolate and coffee nose. A bit thin and watery, smooth sweetish roasted and carbonated palate. (8/4/7/3/14 3.6)

Bottle. Pours dark espresso with little head. Coffee flavors are noticeable at first, but this tastes more and more like chocolate milk as it warms up. Feels quite heavy in the stomach, along with very creamy sweetness. I’d like to try it warmer, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink it again.

Creamy roasted coffee aromawith some metallic hints. Dark ruby body and a small beige head. Taste is extremely roasty and burnt with a coffe finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Sweetness for me is a bit out of hand, but this beer is still very enjoyable.

Black color with no head. Aroma is strong with coffee. Slightly sour taste that still has lingering coffee. Decent malt base that’s a little sweet.

Pour Dark brown with hints of amber. Quick dissapating brownish bead. Aroma is of burnt chocolate. Taste I got when cold is an oaky burnt taste with a long lasting chocolate aftertaste. After this brew warms however, it taste’s just like chocolate milk...Tasty!!! It is very smooth and easy to drink.

People in the Pgh area must have caught on quick because I can’t find this here at the store I go too anymore. I picked up two in the past 3 weeks, sadly they are gone. This brew is certainly a treat.

TomDecapolis (4609) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 20, 2005
Bottled labeled 6/22/04. When held up to the light pours a dark brown with a hint of a deep amber. Small tan head. Aroma is lactose, milk chocolate with slight coffee. Flavor is lactose and milk chocolate up front. This one is very sweet. Would go nicely with a brownie sundae or something. Went down smooth not a whole lot of carbonation. I think the year and half aging may have mellowed it out a bit. Not one of my top styles. But still a nice version of it.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Subtle roastiness and some sweetness in the nose. Good flavors follow but almost no finish. Beware of this trait in other Left Hand Brews--they don’t finish well. Light body for the style--smooth and creamy without much "umph."

Draught at the Federal in Durham, NC. Probably sat near the previous rater. Black as night with light brown head. Not much nose. Mild carbonation. Nice milk chocolate flavor and sweetness. Easy on the palate. Very tasty.
