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.

Rich hersheys dark, coffee and roast are all in the aroma. Pours black with a tiny brown head. Very crisp and full of flavors which include chocolate, coffee, nuts, lightly sweet, espresso. Light bodied. Perfect for drinking more than one; not overpowering.

Nice aroma..roasted malts, chocolate and coffee which flows into the taste. The taste however is a slight miss in terms of depth, but still good.

Awesome beer! I had a great experience from the nitro bottled version. If you really let loose and pour the beer aggressively it comes alive. This is a everyday beer with a desire to please. It had the showmanship of a Guinness, but the taste to back it up. It’s what inexperienced beer drinkers imagine a Guinness tastes like. I know many people who boycott stouts as a novelty drink because of Guinness. This is what people interested in stouts should be pushed toward you won’t be dissappointed.

Pours a black color with a thin brown head. Smells slightly of coffee with some mild sweetness in the aroma. Pretty balanced taste. Not my favorite milk stout, however!

A little watery for me, if it wasn’t so watered down I would have enjoyed it more. It’s a good stout but needs more malt and more ABV in my opinion. The tasted is more cocca beans than sweet.

Pours almost a black color with tan head. Sweetness, roasted malt and toast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet.

Bottle, nitro version. Very nice thick head. Sweet, lactose, chocolate aroma. The same elements on flavour with some coffee also. Thin body. A very "sessionable" stout.

Smooth stout. There is some moderate sweetness to it but it is subtle. slightly malty but not overly roasted or chocolate. Really an easy drinking stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Interesting label caught my eye, plus I have never seen milk stout until I visited New York recently, so I made sure to try some. This was one of the best. Nice roasted malt and coffee flavours, but also more of sweet milk chocolate taste, a fun change to regular stouts. It was nice and sweet all the way through right up until the end. Perfect for dessert, or really anytime.

A crushable milk stout from left hand. Not very chocolately and light on alcohol. Light aroma of malt and cho locate. Had at the frosty mug. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
