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.

Black with a half finger of beige head. Aroma is milk chocolate, very light roasted malt. Taste is super sweet up front with some roasted notes coming through in the finish. Medium body that feels just right. Overall an excellent sweet stout.

12oz bottle. Thanks Lehr! Pours a thick, dark, batch. So good lacto milk chocolate, and roasty nuts. Surprisingly dry finish.

It had a dark brown/black colored body with a creamy tan colored head. The head started off thick then quickly settled down to thin covering that hanged on well. Lacing was good and slick siding down the glass slowly as I sipped. The aroma has some nice hints of roasted malt, sweet grain and coffee. Its flavor matches the aroma but adds more sweet creamy notes to the overall character. The finish is fairly clean with some very light bitterness hanging on. Its texture is very wet and slick. It is just a little bit thin but still somewhat creamy with a light body.

Nitro draft pint. Pours a deep brown to black with a tan creamy head. The nitro version of this beer is as creamy as a milkshake. The aroma is roasted coffee and baker’s chocolate. The malty sweetness here blends well with the milk sugar to produce a very balanced and drinkable cream stout. A classic milk stout - make no mistake.

The aroma of the beer was a nice caramel coffee almost. I drank this straight from the bottle so did not experience the head. The bottle had a alluring look to it and presented nicely even without the mug effect. The taste was exactly as I expected a chocolate flavor with a deep coffee after taste. I can see how this would be bitter if not for my overly addicted coffee habit. Overall this was a very fine tasting beer. It took me only a few seconds to decide the flavor was great, and only a few more to finish off my first.

Chocolate, vanilla, smooth and creamy. This is an enjoyable milk stout. I'd definitely get this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice sessionable stout. pours chocolate brown. Light roasted notes in the nose. Pleasant on the tongue, sweet, light, with a bit of roasted coffee. A bit thin on the mouthfeel, minimal carbonation. All-in-all a pleasant stout.

Color is black. Nice frothy head. Exactly what you’d expect from a nitro beer. Aroma is definitely the weakest part of this beer. Roasted malty character. Very sweet aroma. Taste is malty, roasted and sweet. Very sweet is a great way. It’s also really creamy. I love this, this is right and up my alley.
