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.

Very dark brown with a thin creamy tan head. Light chocolate aroma with some caramel. Nice body. Decent cocoa/roast flavor with noticable milkiness. Clean and creamy.

Not exactly a top tier stout, but still not a bad beer. The deep reddish brown is black at its heart and the lively khaki head fades relatively quickly. The aroma is chocolatey and lightly roasty. The lactose sweetness melds nice to mellow out the roast and bitterness and make a pretty smooth and well-rounded package, although the thin body leaves a little to be desired. There’s also this slight aspect of bourbon that’s lurking around underneath that might have something to do with the alcohol.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 Original rating, July 4, 2005.Bottle, beer 4 of 31 for American Beer Month. Nice, sweet smell resolves to a cola-colored pour under a briefly fizzy head. Taste includes impressions of mocha java, black malts, and a bit of sourness. And maybe it’s just impression from the name of the style, but I also get something of a milk aftertaste. Alcohol makes itself known, too. Rating 7-4-6-4-15. I think I can stand by this rating after the bottled Nitro version.

Very good milk stout. Creamy and smooth. Like coffe and cream. This was great, and I am glad I tasted it on tap, and have a few bottles to compare.

Dark borwn body with no head. Cola, chocolate and fruity aroma. Taste of dark fruit, chocolate, cocoa and sweetness. A little thin and weak for a stout, but an overall good impression. I’ll have another one for sure.

This is my #1 Milk Stout of all time! Finally got it distributed to the east coast of NJ. I’ve had them all..This Milk sugar based stout earned a spot in my basment beer fridge for life. Drink em’ while you can, Don’t let the nutrition facts bother you..Milk stouts have a healthy amount of milk sugar fat for your brew gut. When the snow is fallen pour it into your favorite pint glass and tip those cows!!

Solid milk stout. Very sweet with coffee, cream, chocolate in addition to the "milk" Very drinkable, but not one of the best i’ve had.

This is a pretty good beer. Thick and grainy feel to it, but with a fairly subtle flavor. This beer is not going to blow anyone away, but that’s ok, if they all did life would be boring.

Pours a coffee brown with a light tan head. Has a nice roasted malt aroma with a sweetness to it. The milk sugar added definitely adds to the creamy texture and feel of it which I personally love. Malty and smooth with a nice roasty and creamy finish.
