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.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2007 Bottle. This beer is great! Aroma of chocolates. Flavor is very creamy, chocolates, with a almost milkshake familiarity to it. I have to say its very easy to consume and Ill be looking into this one in the future.

Bottle, poured dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavor is nice, like a chocolate milkshake. Body, however, is thin and almost watery. I guess that makes it drinkable, but I was hoping for something with a little more substance. Good beer though.

Pours black with brown highlights and a relatively small head. Malty chocolate aroma; chocolate milkshake (well, vanilla soft serve w/ chocolate syrup at least) milkshake flavors. Gentle hop bite on the short side of the close, returning to bittersweet chocolate on the long end. Easy drinking save for a somewhat prickly fine carbonation.

Quite drinkable even if not particularly adventurous or challenging.

Light brown and hazy. Aroma of chocolate and almond, and lots of starch. The body is a bit thin. Profile is mainly chocolatey but kind of vague with the thin nuttiness of a mailed-in brown ale. Its okay, but not nearly full enough for a milk stout.

I was at a beer dinner in Rocky Point, NY on Wednesday when I passed this on the bar and I had been meaning to try it. I bought a round for my table of this special stout and I inhaled the delightful chocolate aroma as I passed the tray full around. The first taste of the medium to heavy stout erupted with a great malty taste that just invited comparison to the local Southampton Stouts. Like a fat bitter milkshake of a beer, the last ounce told me to open at least two more for me. My next thoughts were to find this on tap as it could be a step closer to being one of my favorites.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 This beer really surprised me. The first thing you notice after pouring the dark brown [almost black] goodness into a quality pint glass is the sweet smell of chocolate. That smell lingers as you get your first taste - defined by sweet chocolate and milk flavors. After letting it sit on your tongue for a second, the coffee flavors start to take over and remain in the after taste. If you like a super smooth stout and gravitate towards sweeter beers, this is well worth a shot. I will be picking up quite a bit more to drink as a "dessert beer." Very important: SERVE COLD!

Blind tasting. Black-brown color with thick head - although it faded quickly. Roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Chocolate milk aftertaste, also in the aroma a bit. Nice creamy smoothness. Hint of bitterness. Creamy, roasted, delightful flavor and aroma. Would like to have again.

pours black with a huge three finger fluffy brown head. aroma is chocolate and a little milk sugar almost smells like chocolate milk. has a medium to full body with good lacing and just enough carbonation for a stout. flavor is the same as aroma with a little coffee. is a little sticky on the lips and has a creamy mouthfeel. it is not to bad a little thin but not bad. as it warms some coffee aroma appears along with a little more in the flavor making it more of a mocha type coffee flavor and aroma than just chocolate milk.
