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.

hopdog (9588) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Poured what appeared to initially be a dark black color, but when held up to a light, it appeared more of a dark reddish-brown color. Averaged sized brown head. Roasty and chocolaty aromas. Light bitter coffee comes through in the taste. Lightly nutty as well. Smooth body. Alcohol content well hidden. Very drinkable.

Surprisingly light and thin for something called a milk stout. Tastes like dessert, lots of chocolate and coffee. Don’t know if I’d want more than one, but a nice change of pace.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Light black, tan creamy head. Nose held notes of milk chocolate, fresh roasted coffee and cream, with hints of oatmeal cookie. Very well balanced with aroma matching flavors. Medium bodied, light carbonation, semi-sweet, chocolaty malt finish. It was a touch sweet for a session brew, but would pair up nice with dessert.

This is a pretty solid beer. It has a chocolately aroma to it. It seems a little thin and watery for a stout, but hey, apperance doesn’t matter, it’s only really flavor that counts and this beer has a nice malty, roasty chocolate flavor to it that is pretty solid. Again, a pretty good beer.

Simple and thin and malty overall. Some woody and nutty tastes (hazelnut) with some peat even. Sweeter than bitter or roasted, though there is a lingering toasted malt flavor after the finish. A good drinking stout that is not complex and straight forward.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Fizzy head and a thin looking body, for a stout. Aroma is chocolate, roastiness, a little hops. Quite nice, really.Taste is some hops, some lactic, some roast. A bit better body than the appearance would suggest. Okay Sweet.

Full dark color, light head, and a definite blend of milk tones and roast chocolate in the aroma. Very smooth taste, with none of the aspects taking over the flavor. The mild sugar definitely smoothes out the taste and there is virtually no aftertaste. A solid brew for sitting back and enjoying a flavor.

Chochlate,aroma with coffee,and butterscotch undertones.Same with taste.Very drinkable stout,and very tasty. If it had a lil more of what it already has it would be great.as it is it’s a good sweet stout.Alcahol is farily well hidden. Coffe black with ruby coming through in the light.Very little lace,or head to speak of. Worth a return purchase.
