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.

12oz bottle from MItsuya’s in Asagaya, Tokyo. Poured into an English tulip pint. Ink black with a modest tan head. Carbonation is very fine. Toasted malts, chocolate, cream, toasted marshmallow aroma present. Creamy mouthfeel with thin body.

Pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma has cocoa and a touch of peat. Flavor follows suit and adds a layer of brown sugar/caramel. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with a slightly sweet finish at first that lingers to dry burnt bitterness.

Amazing how the appearance shows up after the unusual upside down fast pour. Taste is wonderful.

miggle (225) - Fürth, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2015
Poors very dark with a light brown head. Aroma has roasted malt and bread. Taste is sweet with roasted malt. Not much of the milk sugar, more than a usual stout.

theOptimator (300) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Nitro Bottle. Aroma is sweet roasty chocolate toffee coffee. Appearance is almost black with a hint of red. Really no head. Taste is rich sweet chocolate malt forward. Plenty of toffee and coffee notes. Palate is medium and smooth, sweet roast lingers. Overall a nice beer but I believe the carbonation was bad on mine. The bottle says to "pour hard" and I did but it had really no head at all. I feel that this influenced the beer. Not really any creaminess, just came across as flat. Still very nice flavors and one of the better sweet stouts I have had. Sweet but still enough complex roast to keep things from being cloying or boring. Would be rated much higher with proper carbonation.

PapaSkeetSkeet (982) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 10, 2015
How have I not rated this before? Black-brown with 2mm light-brown, super-fine, yet frothy head that fades slowly. Aroma is coffee, toast, dark chocolate, milk, some herbs with a hint of mint. Body is oily, somewhat syrupy, fine light carbonation with no burn. Flavor is a giant roastedness with bits of coffee, wood, light bbq, leather. Semi-sweet malt, refreshing grasses. Really very delicious.

voyageurmike (116) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Nitro-labeled bottle, served in tulip glass. Sweet chocolate aroma, almost black with creamy tan head. Milk chocolate and toffee flavor, thin-bodied. Medium finish, not cloying. Better to let it warm a bit. Not enough body for my stout preferences, but quite good.

Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan skim of a head. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, and smoke. Heavy body, medium-high carbonation, and creamy texture. I get a lot of chocolate and coffee flavor. It is sweet but nicely balanced with some subtle bitterness. Really nice overall.
