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.

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

From review on BA on 1-31-12 - Had on tap at Zeno’s brew pub and served in a snifter. Appearance – Pours a nice deep black. When held up to the pub lights, not many rays made their way through. Upon serving there was a mild off while-brownish head. The head had some persistence leaving some lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – A mild chocolate aroma is the first and most potent of the aromas. There is a bit of roastiness, dark cocoa and coffee hidden within the aroma which are most present at the end of the aroma as they mix in with the milk chocolate and a bit of roasty barley aroma (just a bit). Taste – A roasty chocolate and coffee are the first to be meet by the tongue. The milky sweetness of the lactose then comes in giving more of a milk chocolate and cappuccino flavor. The sweetness seems to amplify as the taste experience continues; maximizing near the end. Quite a pleasant transition. Mouthfeel – A nice creaminess coats the tongue while drinking this brew. A relatively milder level of carbonation allows for it to be a very easy drinking smooth beer. Very good combo of carbonation and creaminess for the style. Overall – A nice sweeter stout of more moderate alcohol content. It makes it a very easy drinking session brew.

BAMF (78) - Albion, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Aromas chocolate roast with no hop and no diacetyl and some coffee and cream. Appearances blackened opaque with a light tan moderate head and minimal retention. Flavor is coffee and cream with hints of chocolate. It has moderate sweetness though balanced with chocolate and coffee flavors. It also has roasted flavors with a hint of burnt aftertaste. Mollifield is a medium to full with low carbonation. It is slightly bitter and creamy. Overall smooth moderately sweet with coffee and chocolate and ever so slight burnt aftertaste.

HuskerTan (447) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - MAY 15, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 Draft. A- Cocoa, coffee, roasty. A- Black color, black liquid, tan head T- Coffee, cocoa, mocha, malty. P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, watery finish. O- Very unimpressed. This may be the first sweet stout I didn’t like. It was extremely thin and watery and the flavors were kind of bland as well. I do like what the nitrogen does to the head. But the appearance is about all I enjoyed in this one.

snoworsummer (1858) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Draft at B&O. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy, bubbly tan head and lots of lacing. Tastes slightly sweet with a nice, toasty mild bitterness. Light coffee and burnt toast, smoothed out by some semi-sweet chocolate and vanilla. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted grains, bitter chocolate, some caramel.
