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.

Beautiful beer. Pour fast to ensure the beautiful creamy head. Smells of both vanilla and chocolate. Makes me think of a delicious ice cream swirl. Tastes of strong chocolate, moderate vanilla, and minor coffee. Absolutely sexy. Highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very dark and creamy stout. It is a nice sweet flavor character. It only has a slight hoppy bitterness. I.e. Bittersweet chocolate

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 (112) - 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.
