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.

ALIBALI (224) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2016
Geiles Bier. Cremig & schokolastig. Geschmacklich sehr komplex und ausgewogen. Die Süße hält mit der dezenten Herbe perfekt die Balance. Getrunken aus einem abgelaufenen Fläschchen aus dem Craft Beer Store HH. 355ml für 2 Euroletten.

Foffern (1595) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle. Has a black color with a small light brown head. Roasted aroma with coffee, dark chocolate, lactose and heather. The flavor is more roasted with ash, hard roasted coffee beans and chocolate. Incredibly soft mouth feel, full-bodied and light bitterness. A great, roasted and well-balanced milk stout.

sevefan (9) - IRELAND - FEB 24, 2016 does not count
On draught from Stout NYC 41st Street. Nutty sweet chocolate on the nose. Smooth and slippery mouth feel. Along with the sweetness of the chocolate I got an aftertaste I later described as like Milk of Magnesia. A wonderful wonderful desert stout. Got back to Ireland and ordered some.

355ml at home. Pours black, beige head. Disappears quickly and doesn’t leave anything on glass. Subtle roastiness, milk, coffee and chocolate on the nose. Same thing in flavour, pretty decent but lacks thickness. Low carbonation. Enjoyable and drinkable but nothing too special, just decent.

Dark brown color. Lowish carbonation. Smells of chocolate milk, mocha, just a little bit of hop aroma. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. Has a bit of balancing acidity and a bitter finish. Tastes of espresso and dark chocolate. Very drinkable, just not super complex.

edwardbass (754) - Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2016
A "light" stout. Roasted grain, coffee aroma. Taste is the same, with some creaminess of the sugars and dark chocolate. A bit thin for a stout. Just enough bitterness to counter the sweetness. Sweetness is mild. Decent, but not something I want to try again.

Coffee on nose. Beautiful dark color. Thick mouthfeel. Nice malt backbone. Really solid stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Arthree (43) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
Nitro bottle. Pours opaque black with very fine beige nitro head. Cascade only lasts a few seconds before dissipating. Smells like licorice, dark chocolate, a bit of milky sweetness... kind of like a baby just after breastfeeding. Tastes chocolatey, milky, sweet and smooth. I think the first bottle lasted less than 5 minutes. Very nice!
