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.

pours a dark almost black color. Has the smell of roasted malts, chocolate, & coffee. Taste is really smooth. Reminds me of coffee with a bit of cream and a very little bit of sugar. Wish it was more readily available at my local grocery store.

Smells super coffee-y/chocolate-y. The sweetness of the sweet stout makes it taste sticky and a faint smell of soured milk (probably just because it’s inferred by the name). Very drinkable.

Dark garnet body, small tan head. Aroma of oatmeal, cram, and roasted coffee. Flavor is rich and full of toasted oats and bittersweet chocolate. Sweet, rich finish. Very tasty.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2012 bottle, nice thin tan head, nose of coffee and malt, good burnt toast , bittersweet chocolate and caramel sugar flavors, finish is a little oily and nondescript 51812 nitro really works for this

Poured a dark brown, almost black, with a nice finger of cream-colored head. Smells of dark malts and chocolates. The taste was chocolate, coffee, and dark malts. Really good. Heavy and creamy in the mouth, very smooth. Definately goes down smooth, I could have downed a few more of these if I wasn’t just sampling. Serving type: on-tap

Sampled in Boulder. A very nice stout with a crisp finish. Solid black color and consistent head.

Now this is a good stout. The milk sugars do seem to mellow the usual stout roastiness, but I found it quite enjoyable to drink. It is a very dark opaque color with a finger or two of tan head. Cellar temperature seemed ideal as the flavor just kept improving as the beer warmed a bit after coming out of the frig. A bit of sweetness there, but the roasted malt is still the predominate flavor and aroma.

355 ml bottle. Thanks to ekstedt. Deep brownish black with a large, stable beige head. Roasted malty aroma with tones of smoke, caramel, chocolate and raisins. Tasting reveals more of the roasted aroma. The taste is sweet and full, with a smooth mouthfeel and perfect, mild carbonation.
