COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800s. 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 benefitssorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year round stout.

This is a rather interesting and unique beer, I do not like it. The after taste is milk. But the up frontness is unremarkable. A little sourness is quickly replaced by lactose or whatever it is. This won a GABF gold, but you either love it or leave it.

One of the more Un WOWing beers Ive had lately.Has a good aroma of chocolate prunes and burnt malt, pouring black as coal with a fizzy head. at first the flavor was ok, but as it warms it goes in the tank. notes of roasted malt, lactose and chocolate,but other than than its almost too creamy. Lacks substance. Meh.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2010 Probably one of the most average beers I have ever had. Nothing stands out, nothing really even offers taste, the only thing you get is a smooth artificial sugary taste. There are better stouts for the price. (2/28/2009) Very roasty and slightly acidic at first, like yogurt. the more you get into it, the sweeter and more creamy/ fruity it tastes. really quite remarkable. (rerated on 07/11/2010)

On tap. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a lasting brown head. Sweet coffee aroma, toffee, chocolate. Roasted, malty body, semi-sweet chocolate, and a tiny hint of lactic sourness. Good dessert beer.

On tap at Chumleys Poured a brown/black with creamy tan head. The aroma is decent, with notes of coffee, milk, and perhaps some bitter chocolate. The flavor is pretty good, sweet malts, chocolate, a bit of coffee, and lactose come through. The mouthfeel is good, sticky, creamy, milky. Overall, its pretty good, but I tired of it more quickly than Id prefer.

Now this is what I had expected out of Bells DCS, a very creamy and tasty stout indeed. Coffee and cream dominate the nose and mouth, and very thick feeling in the mouth. Up there with Moloko plus.

Very deep brown, just barely translucent beer with a very thin head that dissipated within several seconds. The first thing I noticed was the aroma. A deeply roasted aroma that smelled strongly of coffee and perhaps dark chocolate. The beer filled my mouth in the best possible way, and wasnt unpleasantly bitter.
