COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in cans. Previously 3.0%.
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."

Can @ Craig´s, november 07. Dark, black color with a small brown rim. Dark, crystal malts aroma with some butterscotch. Dark sugar flavor with some molasses and a bitter chocolate finnish. Nice. Medium palate, malts predominating and a round finnish. Almost no aftertaste. Nice sweet stout.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2008
OK - sweet, dry, but very thin, but I suppose you’d expect that for the strength.

JonnyC22 (164) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Not the worst beer I’ve had. I was surprised at the low 3% alcohol level. I would try it again...seems like it would be good with wings.

LordCrabapple (109) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 This is a wonderful beer, smooth and sweet. A nice bit of smokiness and not too strong at 3%. I might get away with having two glasses of it. Can’t imagine the Americans liking this, though.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Can, Co-op, Oxford. Grainy Cheerios® aroma, chocolate milk. Mineral sweetness, light coffee and chocolate roast. Gentle carbonation, light creamy palate. A funny stout, but very pleasant and unassuming, and an awful lot of flavor for the strength.
