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.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Dark brown pour into thick, creamy tan head that slowly dissipates into lingering lacings. Carbonated bubbles rise up from the bottom of the glass into a creamy malty pool that hangs around after each drink. Aroma of dark roasted malts, coffee, and sweet chocolate. Initial flavor of sweet chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Full-bodied finish of roasted malts fading into hoppy bitterness with a lingering creamy mouthfeel.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle. Pours a black body with a creamy white head. Sweet lactose aroma, milk sugars, maltose, lactose, and caramel. Sweet and simple.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Pours a clear dark brown with mahogany hints coming through the edges. The head is small and lingers as a ring leaving no lacing. The aroma is very sweet with chocolate and hints of lactose. There are subtle roasted dark malt whiffs in the background to balance the sweetness. The taste also starts with the big milky, chocolaty sweetness which dominates the dark malt base. The finish has a slight hop bitterness that lasts through the finish. The mouthfeel is good, if not slighly thin for the style. Its creamy with lots of carbonation and goes down easy. This is a very sessionable stout that is only held back on drinkability by the dominance of the sweetness. Still, a very good 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.

Defreni (3153) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2008
Flaske. En fuldkommen straight of the mill sweet stout. Udmærket bitterhed på en mørkebrun øl. Brændt og en smule sød men ikke for meget. Ok.

3.2
Grizzle (80) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - DEC 18, 2008
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.
