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.

seems like a beer with not a whole lot of alcohol but a lot of calories. screw that. warm, roasted balanced with sweet malt. its pretty good, but rich, and filling, and not terribly comnplex on the flavor. for the filling-ness of it, i would rather go with some more complex, like an impy.

On tap. Poured really dark brown with a light white head. Aroma of roasted malt, nut, chocolate, caramel. Taste is malty, nutty, little chocolate, sweet & creamy. Mouth is creamy and smooth. Overall, a decent sweet stout.

Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Grainy malt aroma with chocolate and caramel. Sweet malty and chocolate flavour with a note of hay.

this is probably the most drinkable stout i’ve had. It pours with very little head,and what was there disappears almost immediately. Smells good, tastes good, cheers drink up.

Nice pourwith deep brown and fading head. Toasty nutty malts are there. There are also slightly roasted and burnt touches which linger on the palate. There is a dry bittering quality which gives way to a chocolate-bar sweetness which hangs aorund for a little while on the palate. Lingering malty caramel sweetness. A little too much sweetness in the end to have more than just a few. Pretty well rounded and deep flavors but they really dont evolve anywhere, which is ok. Anyway its an easy one to drink and it does the job

A dark pour, nice aroma. Taste was not as thick as other stouts nor as heavy. Light and smooth, it lacked the molasses tones of other stouts. I didn’t catch the "sweetness" so much as I felt it lacked the depth I like. A nice, easy drink, but not my favorite.

Aroma of liquorice, raisin, coffee, chocolate and malt. The flavor is sweet with hints of raisin, malt and liquorice. It’s a really nice and price-worthy stout.

Bottle. I was apprehensive about this because of the name. (I don’t drink milk) Pours near-black with a brown head. Aroma is too creamy at first, then settles down into a delicious coffee-chocolate-cream mix. Flavor is creamy chocolate with a slight coffee aftertaste. Definitely unique. Not bad either.

Pours a dark brown to see through black with little head. Fair amount of carbonation. Aroma is slightly burnt roasted malt. Taste is burnt roasted malt. The mouthfeel was very creamy. So creamy I want more.
