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.

Definitely a milk stout. Silky smooth with strong milk flavor and smell. However everything else about it is fairly run of the mill. Definitely has the milk character it should but nothing much to offer me outside of that. Nitro bottles never work for me, only make a bitter pour with little to no head. On draft this stands a chance of being worth a try.

THE standard by which all milk stouts are judged, at least for me. Sure there are better, and certainly there are worse, but this is the measuring stick.

jinroh (802) - ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
Nitro version. Pours black, beautiful and persistent foamy head. Aroma has some soft roast, milky. Taste is also silky and you can feel the sweetish nitro working. Overall quite well done although not too special or spectacular.

Poors black with little head which dissipates quickly. Sweet as expected, malty with some coffee. Creamy on the palate with a little fizziness. Very easy to drink
