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.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2016 Nitro version. It is super smooth, I get plenty of the milk from the lactose. Slight chocolate, very good.

Nitro bottle, pours dark brown/black thick mocha head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Sweet coffee/chocolate flavour bitter aftertaste. Great milk stout, doesn’t taste like a 6% beer.

Metalchopz (2832) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2015
Had this one in Vegas thanks to David. Pours a very dark brown colour with a mocha head, average retention and minimal lacing. Roasted malt with grain notes and hints of coffee, hops. The taste is sweet with some soft roasted malt chocolate, milder hops, but creating a little bitterness. The mouthfeel is smooth. A decent milk stout with a little more hop than usual for this style.

Kampfar (46) - Münster, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2015
(Had both, the normal Milk stout and the Nitro-version, which cannot be reviewed separately.) Poured from 355 mL. Black colored beer, with a light brown frothy head, which is rapidly diminishing. Slightly smooth mouthfeel, texture is a little bit thicker than normal, nearly creamy with a medium body and medium carbonation. Compared to that, the Nitro-version shows a more creamy head (very long lasting) and texture (but not as creamy as expected) and soft carbonation. The milk stout has an aroma of roasted malts (more intensely recognizable than in the Nitro-version), dark chocolate, roasted coffee & slight yeast. Moderate sweet initial taste, light bitter aftertaste. Flavors of coffee and roasted malts, some hints of chocolate. The finish is dominated by coffee flavor and is slightly astringent. The intensity of the flavor and aroma is slightly better in the normal milk stout, whereas the palate is better with the nitrogen added. Overall both very pleasant and enjoyable stouts.

Derek881 (1216) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink, the beer had a watery black color with a thick creamy average-sized tan head with good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured chocolate and molasses along with some milk and cream and a mild earthy hops. The taste was mostly sweet and milky with notes of chocolate and caramel, along with some earthy and grainy bitter tastes. A very creamy and watery beer with a thicker mouthfeel and soft feel on the palate with low carbonation.

McWorta (1195) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 24, 2015
Dark brown with mahagony hues offering a creamy chocolatey head. Aromas of roasted malts, milk chocolate, milk-coffee, mocha and hints of toasted white bread develop. Very smooth and light faint livelyness wi a medium coffee like body. Sweet and roasted bitterness intertwine and are well balanced. Medium lasting finish with chocolate coffee notes.

Not very exciting. Middle of the road. Pretty damn plain. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
