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.

RSRIZZO (1972) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Had this beer on 2/10/2003. Aroma is smooth and roasted. Color is a deep dark amber with good carbonation and a nice thick head. Taste is roasted and creamy. Starting with a rich full body it goes down with a velvety feel. Finish comes on with a creaminess that is full of a nice roasted flavor backed by a mild bitterness. Its an all around well balanced stout. This is a very drinkable and would be good any time.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2007
Not bad at all actually. Black, a bit thin but sweet and full of taste. There is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and somewhat to my supprise (all though this might just have been my imagination), milk.

Black color, brown head. Malty and sweet with roasted notes scent. Malty roasted taste with a metallic aftertaste, when looking I think you can sense a sweetness from milk/lactose. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Almost completely black color with a little ruby. Full brown head... looks like the head on a Coke, but fuller. Sweet roasted aroma. Tastes like roasted coffee with milk... delicious. A little chocolate in there too. Definitely a good, sweet, and sugary beer. More than enjoyable. 12 oz. bottle.
