Originally brewed by Mackeson of Hythe in Kent in 1910. This is the first beer to use milk sugar to produce a Milk Stout. The Mackeson brewery was eventually acquired by Whitbread, which in turn was taken over by Interbrew (now AB InBev) who initially produced the beer at their Magor brewery in Wales. Subsequently has been contract brewed by Youngs and latterly by Hydes.
"The Original & Genuine."

Plain stout appearance with little head, the aroma is milky with a dry finish, and the flavour is milky with a bitter tinge with quite an off-centre feel about it. Overall an ok sweetish stout with a slight dry finish.

Milk stout, non? Or is that a word no longer used as it may induce small children to partake in this evil elixir? Can't separate this from old friend that was mainly a wine drinker - she knew I love beer and must have asked me at every party we ever attended together whether or not I tried this. "I sell it" I would tell her. Really quite a bit TOO sweet for my taste. Beyond that, or underneath the sweetness or on top of it - whatever- seemed like a pretty decent stout.

An enjoyable stout. Dark brown completion, smooth and refreshing taste. Purchased in a four pack at the arcade mart. Surprised to see such low alcohol by volume. But unlike Hoegaarden it didn’t come with a free glass. Oh well. Cheers!

(275 ml bottle.) Very dark/black, good tan head. Aroma is malts and coffee, flavour is sweet and malty with coffee and chocolate notes, hardly any bitterness. This beer proves that a low ABV beer can be flavourful, but it's just too sweet to be a favourite of mine.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2004
Black body with a brown medium sized rocky head that almost went the distance. Roasted characters and coffee on the nose. Creamy, chalky, sweet, milky coffee, malt, thin, flavours. Not bad but not my cup of beer!

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2004
Jet black with a beige big bubbled head. Creamy coffee with a hint of roast in the nose and mouth. Rather thin bodied and slightly tart.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2004
Smooth, soft and mild. Milky mouthfeel. Sweet. Slightly thin. A nice opponent to hvidtøl.

I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was too lazy and stupid to write my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.

Tiny little can with a slam down hole (Do they think its a can of solo or something). Very dark colour with an offwhite head that quickly fades. Smells quite malty - hint of chocolate. Tastes a bit like stout but finishes more like cola. Very sweet - wont buy again - yukkkk. cheers
