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.

Smells like espresso. Taste is sweet but not cloying and has notes of coffee. Thick mouthfeel. Great beer but I wouldn’t drink many of these.

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.

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

Cerveja escura com sabor de malte tostado, café e chocolate. Espuma de baixa persistência. Cerveja encorpada, de sabor suave e macio.

Bottle ( 12 Oz): hard pour leaves silky tan head. Black beer. Taste some chocolate and coffee, but just don’t like the lack of carbonation. Too smooth for me.

Bottle to glass, pours black. Taste is sweet. Medium body, light carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes sweet, just slightly bitter. notes of chocolate, coffee, easy drinking stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had the Nitro Stout. I love the foolproof hard pour bottle. You get a perfect pour every time. Great cascading finishes to a dark brown. Velvety head. Smooth mouth feel and great silky finish. Easily on of my favorite stouts available in my area.
