COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in cans. Previously 3.0%.
Originally brewed by Mackeson of Hythe in Kent in 1910. This was 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.

Ungstrup (34246) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2006
A very dark brown beer with a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted with a slight hint of chocolate. The flavor is sweet roasted, but without power both in body and roastiness, and the sweetness has an artificial tinge - cant’t think why. Too weak for me - but for a light stout it is nice.

Deep black colour, a smokey roast malt nose, very mellow quite complex roast malt flavour. Probably the best beer in a CAN that i have had.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2010
Can. Opaque, dark brown pour witha dense, creamy and stick-to-the-sides-of-the-glass beige head. Dark malts, faint roast in the aroma, with some light caramel and lactic sugars. Very sweet flavor, prunes and light char, plenty more lactic sweetness, not much bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, perhaps too much sugar, really, with not enough roasty bitterness. Altogether not that bad.
