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.

Does kinda taste like chocolate milk. Very little bitterness, but enough to keep it from being cloying and flabby. Nice, but not great.

Well this was ok... It didnt have the stronger and complex tastes I enjoy. It had some coffe taste in it but the flavors went away rather quickly and didnt linger on anyside of my palate for an extended period of time. On a more positive note I would drink it again. It was really smooth with a nice feeling in your mouth it had a funny carbonation feeling to it.

Bottle. .. great roasty aroma, lots of malt.. .. Black pour with creamy tan head. . .Bold roasty flavor up front with sweet, malty finish. .. Thick sticky body (milky?) that coats the tongue and makes the flavor last. Light carbonation. .. A very tasty stout, well done.

I liked this - it tasted like sucking the teat of an alcoholic cow. Creamy smooth, beefy aroma, choc + coffee all the way. Drying bitter finish.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2007
Bottle. Small tan fizzy head (fully diminishing) into black opaque body. Sweet chocolate aroma with coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is initially is moderately sweet and finishes with a mild bitterness-also duration is long in length. LIght to medium bodied. Dry textured. Average carbonation. Not a bad sweet stout but not for me.
