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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a jet black, with a small tan head which quickly fades, leaving moderate lacing. Nose is dark malt,chocolate, and coffee.Taste follows the nose, with a hint of milk sugar sweetness. Delicious.

Pretty good. Very smooth and milky. Not fussy about being poured a bit too cold. It's a baby stout with a sweet milk finish. Would buy again.

WillemsUrenkel (532) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 10, 2014
12 fl. oz bottle at the starbucks at Dulles Airport for a lot of money. Nearly black in the glass. Sweet malty at the nose. Starts creamy with toasted malt. Low bitterness. Sorry, I expected more.

Pours a dark black with a foamy, long-lasting tan head. Has a malty aroma. Flavor is sweet malts. Has a light body feel, very creamy. Excellent brew.

A great nitrogen beer. Pours a beautiful amber black with a super thick tan head. Smells of coffee and vanilla, bit of French vanilla. Taste is similar, extremely creamy, and very smooth. Had on tap at Spritzenhaus in NYC.

12 oz bottle that from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Bottle reads ’Nitro’ and does not have the cow pic. Plenty of lactose and a nice creamy nose and mouth feel. I liked it a lot.
