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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Enjoyed on tap in a shaker glass. The beer pours an opaque black color, with a dense light to medium tan head. The nose shows notes of dark chocolate and caramel. The palate shows a touch of roasted character initially, before revealing a pleasant amalgam of caramel, toffee, residual lactose-based sweetness, and a balancing bitterness. Carbonation is relatively low and the mouthfeel full, allowing the beer to be substantial, and yet remain eminently drinkable. The finish is long and quite sweet. Overall, a very enjoyable experience, and a very nice example of an all-too-rare style.

Slightly clear, very dark brown beer with a beige head. Light aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavour is chocolatey malt, a bit of sweet coffee. There’s a slight nutty hint to the aftertaste as well. Rich, smooth and very drinkable.

tfontana (375) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from One Stop Market, Haverhill, MA. Aroma is lactose, mild milk chocolate, coffee. Appearance is dark, opaque brown with trace head, no lacing. Taste is lightly sweet with some chocolate and coffee, light anise in finish. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and mild carbonation. Overall, a good beer but not a standout in a tough category.

Turboninja (349) - 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 (1555) - 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.

Duckboot (37) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2016
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.

Nice creamy and cocoa flavor. Nice dark color and light head. Thick malts aroma. Really smooth and well done. Tap
