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.

Pours a deep brown, almost black, with a tan head that leaves heavy lacing. Aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, and milk. Sweet and smooth describe the taste. I can also taste some chocolate and coffee. Finishes very smooth. Quite a tasty stout.

Turboninja (342) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium aroma with chocolate, slightly roasted malts and some licorice. Pitch black color with strong, creamy, light beige head. Medium, bit thin taste with licorice, roasted malts and some chocolate. Balanced with medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with slightly roasted malts. Strong/medium body with low carbonation. Overall, quite sturdy and especially balanced product for the percentage. Still, you cannot do miracles with 6%.

Poured into a taster showing black center with translucent coffee rims and sparse latte colored foam. The nose shows coffee and hints of soy sauce. The palate is nitrogenated and medium bodied. Very light flavors of coffee and subtle notes of soy sauce. Barely any bitterness.

tfredvik (1551) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2016
Pour hard! Oh yes! I pour my glass in 10 seconds, and watch how a creamy, very dense and tan head gradually forms on top of the black body. The head is of course fully lasting. Beautiful! A dense pillowy head is nice to look at, but it doesn’t actually increase the intensity of the aroma... I manage to pick up some dark roasted malt, coffee and faint leather, though. Fairly strong flavour of dark roasted malt, coffee, ash and hints of generic fruits and dark berries. Moderate sweet taste with a light bitterness in the finish. Mid-bodied, creamy body and close to flat carbonation. A fun one.

Litt mild for meg. Men bevares, her var det sødme nok. Tror nok denne kunne ha hatt litt mer karbonering, og litt mer brentmalt. En god, men ikke mer enn god, milk stout.

Very sweet initial flavor, the lactose sugar does calm down quickly and leaves slightly bitter aftertaste. Which just makes you want to drink again. Had bottled from local liquor store as alternative to Guinness. Very much want to try the nitro version.

Pours a jet black color with a small tan head. The aroma is of sweet roasted malt with minor notes of coffee. The flavor was of coffee with light notes of sweet chocolate milk. The body was medium with a light bitter aftertaste. Overall it was good.
