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.

I am rating the nitro version in this entry. Why the nitro version isn’t listed separately, I have no idea, because it is really a different beer. The nitro version is more rich than the regular. The roasted coffee and dark chocolate flavors seems stronger, and it is creamier and thicker on the palate. Lovely stuff.

Coffee notes, not too sweet, had the nitro version, although I’m not sure what the point is.

Had in NYC local hostel. Poured dark, no head. Was OK, not amazing. Maybe better with hearty dinner.

PowY (174) - - SEP 14, 2016
355 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt (dark coffee) and a light sourish note. Medium to full body with a creamy and flowery mouthfeel and a strong to heavy sweetness and low carbonation. Flavor full of roasted malts - brown suggar and dark coffee; maybe some wood and spices. Excellent.

355ml bottle nitro. A fun beer, but a bit sweet for my taste. I’m new to sweet stout anyways, but definitely a quality product.

Beerclubsa (65) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 9, 2016
355ml. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head that is dense and has a head that retains at about 1/2 a cm. Aroma is dark stone fruit, vanilla wafer, caramel, cocoa nibs and coffee. Palate is medium full body and medium carbonation with a smooth, rich creaminess. Flavour is rich dark fruity cocoa upfront with a coffee flavour that precedes a bittersweet, creamy fruitiness which then smoothly recedes into vanilla, which lingers. Outstanding balance and medley of flavours. Superb.

Tasting notes for the Nitro Milk Stout: Difficult to know if the non-Nitro Milk Stout (tried alongside) if really a different beer, but there appeared to be a few nuances between then. Like the non-Nitro Milk Stout, the nose has a nicely light and beefy smokiness, like a barbecued beef steak - but this time with a bit of ground filter coffee. Mouth has a bit more mocha (to my mind), then there is a drier and less creamy/sweet end compared to the non-Nitro Milk Stout.
