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.

TinyTim (25) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2008
Old-ish bottle. The aroma is soft, malty, biscuity, caramel, quite sweet for a stout. The flavour is smooth and creamy, very nice. The beer has no real defining character (it may have lost it with age/ transit), but it is a pleasant English stout; not too sweet, not too malty.

Could this be the perfect beer? I couldn’t rate the apperance higher because I drank it from the bottle. I sure tasted like it looked good :-)

Butters (4051) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Pours a great dark brown with unsustainable dark tan head. Nose of molassis, a hint of alcohol, dark roast. Flavor reminds me of kahlua a little bit. Coffee, lactose, anise. Very impressed. I don’t usually care for this style, but this was not bad

thewolf (12328) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle @ The Rake, London.
Pours almost black with slight red edges. A great, creamy, light-beige head on top. Powerful aroma, good milky chocolate, almonds, roasted malts and a little coffee. Fine, lightly creamy mouthfeel. Sweet flavour, lots of milky chocolate and softly roasted malts. A fine, balanced dryness in the finish. Truly a very drinkable beer.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2008
Creamy, roasted, chocolate, a hint of coffee in the end. Quite mild yet pleasant, could be a bit heavier on the body.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2008
Very dark brown. Sweet taste with woodsmoke and composty vegetal notes, very autumnal and curiously nostalgic. Sour milk taste with some ash, liquorice and sugar. Some residual dryness, but the overall effect is intensely comforting and delicious.
