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.

Very smooth. Pours dark with white/ lite brown head. Sweet taste for a stout but it is a sweet stout. Impressed with this brew, always have been impressed with left hand Brewing.

Its dark. Its malty. Its another sweet stout. Likeable, yet uninspired. Much like this review.

Flaske. En fuldkommen straight of the mill sweet stout. Udmrket bitterhed p en mrkebrun l. Brndt og en smule sd men ikke for meget. Ok.

Bottle to glass at home. Pours a dark opaque, with not much head. The head that did develop is a toasted marshmallow tan. Very little lacing. The aroma is malty, caramelly, sweetened malted milk like, with cereal and grain notes. The taste is very much the same. Roasted malts, with cereal flavor on the back end. Can definitely taste the caramel and again the sweetened milk. Palate is not as think as other stouts, neither good nor bad. I will certainly drink this beer again. At least 5 more times.

Dominant coffee roasted malt. Chocolate taste also. Distant & light hoppy character. Quite carbonated. Dark brown body, thin head.

Pours a dark brown, with light tan head. Swet malt, chocolate, nuts, and hints of roasted coffee. Quite creamy and sweet, it almost tastes artificial. Makes an excellent beer float though.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Pours dark but transducent brown with a thin, creamy beige head. Aroma is plenty of toast, sweet chocolate, candied nuts, lightly toasted marshmallows, herbal hops, and a some roast. Flavor has plenty of roast and chocolate, candied nuts, a hint of mellow coffee, lactose is evident, and maybe a little over the top if you concentrate on it. Finish is not too impressive, basically the flavor fades and there is a little more char, not a whole lot of added complexity. Body is a bit thin and sticky for the style as well as being a tad high on the carbonation.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Dark brown pour. Amber head. A little thin to the mouth. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is the same with a little anise and a subtle finishing hop thrown in.

hopheaven (91) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Black as night w/ a slight yet luscious head; a killer, spot-on aroma; perfect dark malt flavor, sadly complicated by fusel and over-bittering; a tad thin yet creamy; not perfect, perhaps too complex, but quite quaffable nonetheless.
