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.

Look dark like Guinness, tastes a little bit sweeter, but still pretty good overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Get roasted barley aroma in this dark brown brew with a light brown head. Chocolate milk in a bottle with slight carb. A bit on the light bodied side but very tasty. No bitterness. Just sweet choc. and a smooth finish.

What a nice smooth creamy stout... Can’t beat the nitro creaminess and huge roast flavor. Great beer, too easy to drink.

Chalumeaux (169) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Poured from bottle. Dark chocolate color with thin tan head. Aromas of coffee chocolate band smoke. Taste is smooth with chocolate catamel and vanilla tones and just slides down. I wish this was barrel aged as it would be awesome.

Lukaduke (2469) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Pours a rich burnt umber color with a finger of khaki foam. Roasty, soft cocoa, some malted milk creaminess underneath. Mouthcoating liquid with a pleasant underlying chocolate milk flavor throughout. Hint of bitterness lingers.

This beer was a nice beer and I really liked it and the aftertaste was smooth and milky.

12oz bottle shared by Chalemeaux. Thanks, TJ! Record month of rates for me! Much more fun than beating the seasonal snowfall record (did that too). Pours nearly black with a light tan head. Aroma is dark coffee, lacto. Flavor is nic and smooth, chocolate, dark coffee. Well done.

Piwo super gładkie, super aksamitne. Doskonała prezencja dzięki nagazowaniu azotem. Przyjemna laktozowa słodycz.

Hopmaestro (322) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2015
Aroma is fruity and sweet but also general stout notes. The taste is awesome, and this is how a sweet stout should taste. Strong caramel, sweet vanilla and chocolate. It’s like a cup of hot cocoa for hard dudes/dudettes, but cool... and tastier.
