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.

Light black (if that makes sense) in color. Burnt nose with a small choclate and malt taste. A bit of hops at the end. Decent, but nothing to write home about.

Dark brown/black pour. Medium,lacey head. Leaves nice patch of head. Full roasty,creamy,sweet aroma.Medium body,full mouthfeel,creamy texture. Great chocolate,roasty,creamy flavors. Finish is roasty,slightly lactic,and lingering. Doesn't have the full-throttle acidity of Bells Susie,which is why I like it better. Fairly good,filling,stout.

Enjoyed this over and over for the morning GABF session. Creamy coffee, chocolate taste combined nicely with malt to finely mask any alcohol taste.

Milk-Duds, malted milk chocolate candy… roasted and pressed coffee, sweet sugary note in the middle… 7% abv., I don’t see it at all! Certainly happy I re-rated this one!

A nearly black body, but when you hold this stout to the light an amber silhouette is present. The aroma is lactic…. it’s creamy, yogurt like, chocolaty, notes of cold coffee. The flavor is quite similar, sweet whole milk and cream, something is reminiscent of the Yoo-hoo chocolate drink…. Fairly good stuff. ….The mouth feel is medium, heavy on the palate though

bottle-this was NOT a stout-very thin-looked like a porter. one dimensional coffee aroma and flavor. I know this was fresh because it was bottle dated "bottled on 8/3/03" not good!

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Pours black with long lasting head. Good malt/chocolate aroma. Flavor is chocolate/coffee with a slightly bitter espresso aftertaste. Faily weak mouthfeel and flavor. The aftertaste is too sweet and a little cloying. Not bad.

Thanks again to redlem for another beer! Pours brownish black with a small tan head. Nose is sweetened coffee with milk chocolate. Bitter taste with some roasted, sweetened malt notes coming through towards the finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Lightly bittered finish. Good beer!

This is a very interesting Stout. As the name suggest it has a bit of a cream taste to go along with a dark stout taste. Being a Wisconsinite, I like it!
