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.

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Appearance: Very dark, nearly black. Love the cascading bubbles as the pint comes off the tap. Builds a majestically creamy white head at the top that sticks around forever. Some lacing, though nothing intense. Looks outstanding. Smell: Some faint roastiness, some bitter smokiness, and some chocolate notes. Smells like a stout, not much more to say here. Taste: Great balance between the roasty malt bitterness and a touch of chocolaty sweetness. This milk stout is not too sweet, probably because it does not have the addition of actual chocolate or other brewing adjuncts. This one has a right amount of sweetness to compliment, but not overpower, the roastiness, and makes this one drink somewhat like dessert coffee or dark chocolate mousse. Finishes sweet. Mouthfeel: Creamy due to the nitro bubbles. Felt smooth as silk on the palate. Overall: Exquisite smoothness from the nitro makes this balanced milk stout fantastically easy and pleasurable drinking. Would certainly buy again, especially when looking for a nice, easy-drinking stout. This beer is fantastic on-tap, and is a vast improvement over an already good bottled product. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabah (145) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
Medium chocolate taste, sweet, creamy. Pretty dark, almost black, but not too thick and heavy. Goes down smooth, not much bitterness from the hops. Decent carbonation and head. Was the first Milk Stout that I had tried I believe. Tried a few other cream/milk stouts since then, but not sure if anything as good as this. Will be buying again for some reassurance.

scooterbub (901) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 3, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark black with a red hue and a thin tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, milk, hops, vanilla, chocolate and some dark fruit. Similar aroma. Has a full body. The nitro version is a bit creamier, but both are excellent. A very good beer regardless of the version. Great flavors and very easy to drink.
