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.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2008
Very sweet notes in the nose, sort of like melted ice milk from Dairy Queen. Pour is a pretty damn solid deep brown with little light sneaking through. Thin mottled tan head rests on surface. Wonderful sweet milk aroma meshes with some roast notes. Super flavorful sip...definitely some roasted barley which leaves burnt/ashy taste in back of mouth, but front of flavor is sweet and rich. Good mouthfeel. Bitter/sweet balance is hard to comprehend, but it exists. Very unique stout.

Bottle from the Drinkery Derry as Nitro Milk stout. Opaque black color with a small creamy tan head that persists for quite a while. Rich chocolate with hints of sugary sweetness that reminds me of creamed coffee. Creamy silky mouthfeel. Smooth rich tasty beverage.
