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.

Pours black with light brown head. Deep chocolate taste with hints of hazlenut. Very nice taste. Beer has a nice mouth feel.

12 oz bottle that from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Bottle reads ’Nitro’ and does not have the cow pic. Plenty of lactose and a nice creamy nose and mouth feel. I liked it a lot.

Great bread like aroma! Creamy on the tongue, a bit coffee and roasty, dark chocolate sweet finish. Head is creamy white, thin when poured, but lasts the whole glass, very lacey. Nice to have a stout that’s American brewed and worthy of it. Glad I bought the whole six pack.

Bottle. Jet black pour. Thin head. Get skim milk and like a yeasty, kind of bread smell on the nose which is quite interesting. Taste is big dark chocolate and licorice, light rostiness on the finish and perhaps a touch of coffee. Solid brew.

Interesting offering, poured from a bottle at The Cheese Shop with brie and sharp cheddar. Nice coffee flavor, great color, small head, I’d drink this again.

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUL 3, 2014
Villámgyorsan eltűnő habja alól édesen pörkölt, sűrített tejes aroma száll fel, mely egy kissé savanykás és karamelles, telt, malátás ízben folytatódik, a prímet azonban a stoutokra egyébként is jellemző, frissen fejt, mosdatlan tehéntejes aroma viszi, mely ebben az esetben szinte magától értetődőnek tűnik.

ryecatcher (717) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle (label says Nitro though). Pours a stouty brown-black, opaque with a thin off-white head that hangs around for a while like you’d expect from a Guinness pub-draught can. Nose is roasty, Cocoa Puffs, coffee and faint smokiness. Mouth is a bit thin for the style, medium bittersweet, decent mix of milk-chocolate, roasted barley, coffee beans. It’s decent -- I’m not jumping on the bandwagon though. Spiteful Brewing here in Chicago does a much better interpretation of the style called ’Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow’.

Wonderful stout, one of the best milk stouts on my opinion. Great mouthfeel. I do prefer the Nitro Milk Stout over the regular but just by a bit.

JBPortland (625) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
12oz bottle pours creamy dark mahogany with light edges and a finger of head. Nose is subtle roast, cream, coffee, vanilla. Taste is smooth light bodied, nice mocha, iced coffee, vanilla, cream. Finish is semi sweet coffee, , touches of chocolate ice cream, nutty vanilla, latte, milk. Enjoyed this.

Nitro is great. Not much carb but loaded with roasty n toasty flavs. Left Hand has nailed it. Awesome dessert brew.

Dark pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of dark malts, cream, and brown sugar. Taste is subdued chocolate malts, coffee, and nuts.
