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.

knights97 (109) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2008 Has a sweet smell, faint though but pours to a thick, dark brown, almost pitched black. Smooth with a thick malty taste, sweet. Not overpowering in any sense nor bitter in any manner. Great beer

zootfinster (220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2008
A nice dark brown pour with brown medium head. Nice toasty carmely taste. Not too carbonated but enough to be more then a dry stout. Enjoyable and will repeat.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 (Sample from November 17, 2006 Beer Club Meeting; Sample from May 16, 2008 Beer Club Meeting) This is one of my favorite Left Hand brews. Super duper dark with an off-brown head. Hints of something sweet, maybe vanilla. Nice, lightly chocolate, and super sweet. Deserty, but not overdone. Nice body. A good, solid beer.

dirt55 (198) - Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2008
mild roasted scent, poured very dark with great sized tan head, surprisingly mellow compared to other stouts and not at all dessert sweet like other milk stouts. the small amount of sweetness that it does have completely removes any roasted aftertastes/bitterness that come with some stouts.

Pours a deep brown with medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Sweet and creamy with almost no bitterness and smooth on the palate. My favorite among this style.

Pours a dark brown to black with a smooth chocolatey aroma and a tan head. The taste starts with light chocolate and finishes with a lingering hint of coffee. Smooth with mild carbonation.

BillKismet (3919) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Carbonated dark brown-black body with a brownish tinted head. Decent dark roast aroma and a flavor of the dark roast, and some chocolate, but with some definite lactose sourness to it. Decent body. Fairly smooth.
