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.

pilsnerrogge (2909) - Finspng, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2007
Bottled
Deep mahogany red, almost black, colour. Dense head. Sweet, slightly roasted, chocolate aroma; smells great. Roasted flavour with notes of coffee and chocolate. With a little more body this wouldve been a great stout, now its "just" pleasant.

MoritzF (9759) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2007
(35.5cl bottle) Dark mahogany colour with a medium-sized beige foamy head. Slightly sweet, moderately roasted grainy malt aroma with dark and milk-chocolate and an aromatic, herbal, slightly woody hops presence. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Moderately roasted malty taste with chocolate and hints of coffee/mocha; smooth and almost lingering sweet-bitter finish with light hoppy accents and notes of chocolate and coffee in the aftertaste. Quaffable, unfortunately hard-to-get Stout (at least in Central Europe).

My 100th rating. I wish I could have it be a better beer. Aroma of sour milk and soy sauce. Thin white head and great DARK color. On the bitter side for taste.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2007
On tap at Quenchers Chicago. Opaque black with the smallest tan head. Aroma is pretty roasty and sweet. Flavor is really sweet that is very lactosey, very light roasted malt also help contribute to this very drinkable but sweet/milk stout. Medium body and creamy. Not bad, but very sweet.

pamoja (57) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Inky black pour with a fantastic tan head that sat around for awhile. Sweet thick flavor with clean crisp finish. Fantastic carbonation. Love milk stouts Probably my new favorite. This is a good one.

I found it very unique and quite delicious. It really is creamy but not to the point that it compromises the carbonation. Definitely enjoyed the appearance.

Bottle: dark black with a thin tan head, chocolate, hoppy, coffee aroma, strong coffee flavor and malty, creamy moutfeel with a note of hops in the finish. Pretty nice sweet stout.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2007
Aroma: a scent of delicious chocolate milk & hops enters my nose as the beer plunges into the glass. Indeed a nice fragrance. Very american, vague notes of coffee but mainly chocolate. A slightly sourish tone in the background as well.
Appearance: reddish brown towards black. Clear but near opaque. Dirty-linen-coloured head leaves thick floaty lacing. Its beautiful.
Flavour: sweet, fudgelike, milky with nutty malts & malt bitterness. Very mild & appetizing. Especially good for being so mild. Slightly sourish cocoa- and hop-aftertaste. Roasted.
Palate: very soft & fluffy. Good carbonation. Light & smooth.

jrhammonds (29) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Pours a dark, black-ruby body with a tan, creamy head that hangs around for a while before digressing to a thin rim. The smell is strong coffee, chocolate, and a touch of oak. The flavor is a nice array of coffee, chocolate malt, and sweet milk sugar. The mouthfeel is the creamiest Ive had in stout--like whole milk going down. Very little bittering leaves the sweetness to ring out finishing soft and sweet.
