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.

Sweet, mocha and chocolate milk flavors. I would never have guessed the ABV, it’s very well masked. This beer was like desert.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2008 Bottle from Hyde Park Express. Smells of Baker’s Chocolate...bitter smelling, but sweetly accented. Pours a nice classic black color with a thin creamy head. Tastes of cream, coffee and mocha. Very delightful taste. Excellent mouth feel. Very well done stout. I’d drink it happily again and again and I often do.

Sinister left hand bottle cap beckons. Within, a dark brown stout resides. The pour creates a small dissipating head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee enliven the nose. Smooth-sweet-easy on the mouth and delightful on the papillae. A very good stout overall.

Pours a deep brown with a small off-white head. Aromas of lacoste, sugar, and some milk. Flavors of chocolate, roasted malts and coffee with a little milkiness to it. Similar to makeson’s triple stout, but not not as well balanced.

Tonight is Stout night on the way to 400!!! Very creamy smooth drinkable stout. Not very potent in regards to Hops or malt. Very chocolately and has a nice coffee undertone. Never had a bad Left hand. This one proves it out again. Nice beer.

Black. Ruby hues when held up to the sun. Huge frothy cocoa head, diminishing. Sharp aroma of dark chocolate. Flavor is lightly sweet, coffee, some chocolate and a hint of hazelnut. Medium body with a lingering dry lightly bitter aftertaste. : )

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Dark rdddish tinted black appearance, decent head formation. Heavily roasted, creamy, nutty, dark chocolate aroma. Sweet creamy flavor, I’d even say milky, relatively light in body for a stout. Hazelnut, dark chocolate, distinctively roasty, notable bitterness in the finish. Pretty full in flavor, yet easy drinking. 7%?

Sammy (9190) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2004
Looks like coke with a snap crackle from active carbonation. Roasty medium mouthfeel coffee cocoa nutty bittersweet chocolate. Very dark brown with tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Not too smooth, but easy drink. Where are the cookies?
