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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 16, 2011
Bottle. Poured a muddy dark brown with a very slight red hue. The light brown head was suprisingly small yet frothy, which dissapated quickly with only a small residue remaining allowing for a fair amount of lacing on the glass.The aroma was nice and robust with a moderatly strong scent of dark bread malts and a sweet doughy yeast with hints of milk chocolate, molasses and a strong coffee presence. It tasted lighty sweet and flavorful with molasses and chocolate notes from the onset, then ended mildly biiter-sweet with a wonderfull strong note of coffee that lingered on the palate for a nice long while. Mouthfeel was creamy in texture and overall feel with the body being medium to full. Both were balanced very well and worked quite well together. Overall an excellent stout. Blending of the flavors was without a doubt perfectly balanced, although it could have been just a tad heavier in body.

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours black with khaki ring head. Aroma of milk chocolate, caramel, toffee, toasted malts. Taste of sweet milk chocolate, cherry cola, toast. Bitter cocoa finish. Super heavy carb for style.

6.0 ABV. Seems pretty strong for a milk stout. More like an imperial milk stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very dark and creamy stout. It is a nice sweet flavor character. It only has a slight hoppy bitterness. I.e. Bittersweet chocolate

Pours dark red to black with an off white head and good lacing. Aroma is creamy, with roast flavours in the background and some mint, plum, honey, citrus and raisin. Taste is sweet, thick roasty cream with a touch of bitterness. A little unbalanced - have had better milk stouts.

AdolfoCC (112) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - MAY 2, 2016
Servida en pinta shaker. APARIENCIA: de color marrón intenso casi negro, se observan algunos destellos marrones a contraluz; corona de espuma de color beige, de burbuja muy compacta y mediana retención. AROMA: notas a café, chocolate, grano tostado, dulzor de lactosa. SABOR: las notas a café y grano tostado predominan, además de notas a chocolate semiamargo, dulzor de lactosa y una ligera nota ácida tal vez proveniente de la avena, pero es muy efímera en cada trago y nada astringente o agresiva; en el retrogusto queda un amargor moderado bajo no astringente, con buena permanencia de las notas a café y tostado. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, ligera sensación untuosa y baja carbonatación. RESUMEN: Una buena milk stout, nada extraordinario.
