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.

dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2008
12oz. Mmmhhmmmm, this was a lovely dessert. Pours a beautiful deep brown with red highlights. Aroma is like a pastry shop with sweet caramel and bread notes, with some roasted coffee that the pasty shop also sells. Body is extremely tasty, like a sweetened latte. Palate is also very good, well lifted from carbonation but also palate coating richness. I love this style.

bhensonb (14871) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle from D&J Liquor in St. Louis, MO. Bottled on date illegible. Black color with a good frothy tan head. Nice aroma of toasted malt and chocolate. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is definitely sweet, and for some reason suggests milky or milky chocolate. The toasted/burnt malt adds enough bitter to make this very drinkable. Really good.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2008 Pint @ Dos Copas. Draft. This was a pleasant surprise. Pour of black with not much head. Loved the roasted chocolately aroma. Syrupy and full-bodied texture. Excellent sweet, roasted taste. Not much bitterness but delicious anyhow.
