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.

Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and coffee. Really rich, creamy mouthfeel without being overly sweet. Coffee, cream, roasted malts, not much bitterness. Not as thick in the mouth as expected which makes for a really drinkable beer. Lovely stuff.

Bottle of the nitro variation. Smell is coffee, chocolate, sweet. I really forgot how damn good this beer smells. Taste is a decadent explosion of milky sweetness and light chocolate/coffee. It’s been many many years since I’ve had this beer, and damn is it good. Does seem a bit thin, but that’s because most stouts are like 1.040 FG these days, with 1000 adjuncts. But dang, this is good stuff.

Pour this hard and watch the show. Great amount of head that last the entire tasting with nice lacing. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Creamy mouth feel. Easy drinking beer!

One of my all-time favorites. Heavy on the coffee with a slight burnt taste, this is delicious. A perfect beer when it’s cold or when you need a good dessert drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

smells like a creamy coffee with some bitter dark chocolate chucked in for giggles, super thick dark brown colour, some white lacing on top, sweet and creamy with a background coffee sweetness into the finish, more watery than i expected but it stops it from being cloying and more easily drinkable, what more could you want?

Nitro tap at Incline Public House on March 4, 2013. Opaque brown color, large tan head that slowly receded with fine lacing, moderate sweet/roasted malt aroma. creamy mostly sweet flavor but with some roasted malt character, long pleasing aftertaste. Sweetness is front and center without being cloying. I’m not much into nitro taps but it really worked with this beer.

Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a thin black that is opaque. with small tan head. Aroma is burnt malts, milk chocolate, sweet leche, and hint of coffee. The taste is similar with burnt malts and milk chocolate. Some vanilla. Thin body for the style, but good flavor. Overall not bad.

On tap, small sample, on nitro. Typical color, dense nitro head, light, nice roasted, coffee cocoa aroma. Taste is mild roasted notes, slightly burnt, hint of coffee and chocolate. Smooth, a little thinner than expected. Overall, enjoyable, very easy to drink, and I like the complexity with this.
