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.

Aromas of coffee, cocoa, and caramel. Jet black with a mostly lasting, satiny tan head. Off-dry with flavors of dark chocolate, savory, and roasty. Light-medium bodied, smooth, creamy, and finishes with some vanilla tones.
Earlier Rating: 1/20/2013 Total Score: 3.8
Aromas of espresso beans, dark chocolate, and earthy hops. Black-brown, with ruby highlights, and a quickly fading, tan head. Tastes great, with solid robustness for a milk stout; starts with a sweet chocolatey/roasted coffee flavor, and dries up with some more complex, dirtier hop bitterness. Medium bodied, creamy, with low carbonation, and a semi-sweet, roasty finish.

beerbaaron (1580) - Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Black with a thin mostly dissipating light brown head. Very inviting aroma. Chocolate, soft roast, lactose. Pleasant sweetness. Bigger light to lighter medium body. Nice mixture of mild sweetness and roast. Mild bitter. Smooth, slick, creamy. Hints of darker roast and licorice show in the finish. Solid all around, polished, enjoyable milk stout.

Nitro version, bottle. One of my all time favorites. Cocoa, bit of toasty coffee with the smooth milk. Awesome. Strong dense head, nearly black and rich.

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.
