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.

Poured deep brown, almost black with a tan head that died off after a short time with decent lacing. Interesting hints of coffee and milk chocolate with a smooth mouth feel, and non eventful slightly bitter finish.

Poured from the bottle. Pour produced a dark ebony body, topped by a dark tan head of foam with light lacing. This was a heavy, creamy stout with a bittersweet chocolate profile, ending with a dry, bitter finish.

Thing to notice from the appearance here is the streaky lacing coming down the glass. Nice roasted malt aroma with some coffee dominating and a hint of cocoa. Flavor is the reverse of the aroma where the cocoa and chocolate dominate with a hint of roasted malt and coffee. The texture is smooth and creamy. All told this is a decent straight stout.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - APR 11, 2009
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It had a dark brown/black colored body with a creamy tan colored head. The head started off thick then quickly settled down to thin covering that hanged on well. Lacing was good and slick siding down the glass slowly as I sipped. Smell: The aroma has some nice hints of roasted malt, sweet grain and coffee. Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor matches the aroma but adds more sweet creamy notes to the overall character. The finish is fairly clean with some very light bitterness hanging on. Its texture is very wet and slick. It is just a little bit thin but still somewhat creamy with a light body. Notes: Overall I would say that it is a very nice, easy drinking stout with an average flavor and character.
