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.

Dark brown pour with cascading tan head. Roasty aroma with chocolate and vanilla. Taste is also roast forward with a really silky mouthfeel and chocolate finish. ---Rated via iPhone

Pours dark red to black with an off white head and good lacing. Aroma is creamy, with roast flavours in the background and some mint, plum, honey, citrus and raisin. Taste is sweet, thick roasty cream with a touch of bitterness. A little unbalanced - have had better milk stouts.

AdolfoCC (97) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAY 2, 2016
Servida en pinta shaker. APARIENCIA: de color marrón intenso casi negro, se observan algunos destellos marrones a contraluz; corona de espuma de color beige, de burbuja muy compacta y mediana retención. AROMA: notas a café, chocolate, grano tostado, dulzor de lactosa. SABOR: las notas a café y grano tostado predominan, además de notas a chocolate semiamargo, dulzor de lactosa y una ligera nota ácida tal vez proveniente de la avena, pero es muy efímera en cada trago y nada astringente o agresiva; en el retrogusto queda un amargor moderado bajo no astringente, con buena permanencia de las notas a café y tostado. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, ligera sensación untuosa y baja carbonatación. RESUMEN: Una buena milk stout, nada extraordinario.

Deep black with a brown not lasting head. Milk chocolate aroma with hints of coffee. Toffee & roasted malt taste with smooth bitter finish. An exemplary example of this style. Rated by BrewTom

Xevious (77) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours dark with a slightly brown head. Smells of chocolate and coffee but you REALLY have to look for it. Taste? This is where it wins big time! It tastes like a fine frap or even an iced milk. Feels a tad watery in the mouth but if drank fast it has a very smooth creamy go down. Overall? I was honestly surprised when I tasted this because it’s right there in the mix of cheap beers where I’m at and this outclasses ALL of them.

Bottle, as Milk Stout Nitro, courtesy of SinH4, many thanks! Poured hard. Looks like a Guinness while the head is turning into its final form: Stable and dense, fine bubbles. Tastes like one of these iced coffee frappées or an iced coffee milk drink. And I mean that in a good way, as the coffee, milk and cream flavours are authentic, the sweetness matches their intensity. Slightly watery but still creamy later on. Very, very well done!
