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.

piscator34 (2181) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 16, 2006
Dark brown in colour with medium carbonation. Nice aromas of roasted malt, nuts, and a bit of chocolate. The roasted malt flavors are balanced out by some thick lactic character. Minor notes of coffee and caramel are also present. Not mind blowing beer, and although it doesn’t realy take any chances it is very well balanced and fits perfectly within the traditional confines of the style.

Guest tap @ the Smokehouse. Robust floral nose of coffee, slight spice & alcohol, and some left over caramel. The brew is black (a stout black, imagine that). The creamy beige head is mostly diminishing with light lace. The brew is very non-offensive, with a sharp and short finish. Translation: kinda small. Would be a great first stout to try for the newbie. The body is full and lively almost to the point of being fizzy. I like em softer, with more character.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - APR 7, 2006
An enjoyable stout to say the least, especially for the nice price. The aroma had a roasty, cocoa, coffee aroma to it. Apperance was black, nothing special or unusual there. Flavor was a bit oxidizes, lactic, but still roasted and creamy enough to be enjoyed. A nice beer for sure.

SDalkoholic (2274) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 7, 2006
Serves up a delightful aroma of lightly roast malt, and chocolate milk. The color is a dark black with a rough patching of head on top. The initial flavor is sweet with a small reminder in the aftertaste of coffee. Again lightly roasted malt is more noticeable from the drink itself.

PhillyBeer2112 (2678) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2006
Very pleasing and smooth. Dark garnet color, thin head. Aroma mildly roasted but restrained by a chocolately goodness. Smooth sweet palate, soft body, a touch of semisweet chocolate and mild roast. Mouthfeel is just a *touch* on the thin side. Easy finish and very drinkable.

Pours dark black with a thin mocha brown head. Smells and tastes mainly of coffee, with an unique taste I assume is the lactose. Not quite on par with the best sweet stouts I have had (Sam Smith’s Oatmeal and Rogue’s Chocolate) but definitely good and unique - will buy again.
