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.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2015 Pours black with a slightly sweet coffee aroma, the slightly carbonated taste is coffee but not overpowering and has a light fruity sweetness in the aftertaste. Leaves a nice warmth on the throat. Not as creamy as other milk stouts but still a very good entry.

On nitro tap. Pours black with a creamy tan head thanks to the nitro tap. Aroma has some chocolate, a little coffee, vanilla, and marshmallow. Taste is sweet and slightly dry with a little bitterness, quite nice. Medium to full body, creamy mouth feel, and soft carbonation. Very nice brew overall.

StueyD (1409) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
A dark cola brown coloured beer with a tan coloured weak. A rich roasted malt aroma, with coffee, chocolate, nutty, plus red fruit and a hint of cream. Medium mouthfeel. A bitter sweet malt taste, coffee, dark chocolate, nutty a hint of tart fruit, then the creaminess comes through, sweetening the flavour in the finish.

Got bottle from BoE - nitro version. Pours jet black into the glass with two fingers, creamy head that remains in glass until last sip of beer. Coffee and lactose aromas. Smooth, flat and creamy. Very drinkable beer.

Wittales (701) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Appearance was clear jet black with creamy diminishing beige 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are soft chocolate, coffee, malt and lactose sweetness. Taste are creamy chocolate milk upfront then touch of malt sweetness and sugar mid sip. Coffee and black bitterness ends this wonderful brew. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with medium body, an average balanced clean finish. Overall a super example of a Sweet Stout, try it.

The smells coming off this beer are extremely subtle. Very solid, thick beer with no light allowed through. Very slight hints of chocolate, but not a lot of overpowering flavor coming out of this

La bière que je déguste en ce moment est la NITRO mais bon, il semblerait que RateBeer la considère comme un alias de celle-ci. La personne qui me l’a vendue m’a pourtant affirmé que la différence résidait dans la manière de la verser. Victor au Beer Cellar de Waterbury (VT) m’a conseillé, lors de l’achat de cette bière, de la verser d’un trait, à la manière d’une cream ale. Je dois admettre avoir rarement vu un stout se laisser verser de la sorte! La formation de la mousse prend plusieurs secondes pendant lesquelles, les minuscules bulles viennent s’installer, par étages et lourdement pour former un col mousseux des plus blancs et crémeux sur un liquide des plus noirs. Chapeau à LHBC pour cette prouesse! Au nez, les malts rôtis libèrent de douces arômes d’un doux café frais et amer. En bouche, le tout est bien entendu sucré car on parle ici d’un milk stout, mais rien qui tombe sur le coeur ou de trop riche. La bière a un corps moyen et affiche une effervescence délicate qui lui confère une légèreté très agréable malgré le sucre qui y réside.

Pours black with thick mocha head. Aroma of subtle chocolate and dried cherries. Taste is smooth, sweet but not cloying. Chocolate and figs predominate. Thick mouthfeel. Good nitro backbone. Overall great milk/sweet stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
