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.

I do love a good stout and thus is a classic of the style. Very smooth. Slightly sweet. Moderate roast. Opaque with good lacing.

Not My style at all, too flat and homogeneous beer, reminds me more of a soda. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to a pint. Dark burnt amber with thin tan head and lacing. Notes of sweet milk chocolate and coffee. Smooth well balanced slightly bitter finish... Well done.

Pours black with almost no head. Slight aroma of milk bottle sweets but it’s not strong. Delicious taste of milk bottle sweets followed by a hint of milk chocolate.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 A good stout with a good slightly sweet roasted dark chocolate malty flavor with a bitterness that hits you at the back of the tongue. A good coffee taste that lingers after each sip. The aroma has hints of sugar and roasted coffee in it.

No complaints. But I do prefer a wee but heavier Stout, like an imperial stout. Everything is great with this brew but I just like my stouts a bit chewy.

This one had been really hyped for me as I hadn’t had a nitro stout in a bottle before. I was actually pretty disappointed... Completely typical and forgettable milk stout aside from being on nitro in a bottle.

Zekada (357) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from Ship in a Bottle. Aroma contains roasted malts, vanilla, coffee and some fruit. Pours black with a small beige head. Taste is more dry than sweet, though with a nuttiness, coffee and roasted malts. Palate is disappointingly thin for a stout. Overall an okay beer, though a bit to tasteless.

12OZ bottle labelled as Nitro Stout. Appearance: Allmost black, brown with a small pillowy tanned head. Head has a good retention for it’s small size. Aroma: caramel, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste: roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and a hint of caramel, The finish is a typical coffee and burned malt biterreness but with some sweetness of the start still there. Mouthfeel is quite creamy with soft carbonation for style.
