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.

Aroma is of coffee malts, some chocolate and very fruity (raspberry), some lactic tones. Black coloured with a lasting brown head. Taste is sweet, coffee malty, moderate roasted, some chocolate, fruity (raspberry) with some lactic tones. Nicely balanced brew.

Bottle. Strong mocha coffee aroma. Dark brown-black with moderate head. Tastes like a mocha coffee with a few extra shots of espresso - creamy chocolate and burnt coffee. Finishes a bit light but overall a great tasting beer.

Slightly milky, green olive nose. Pour is nice enough, dark black with a persistent cap. Dry and husky with a nice milk balance, and very drinkable. Definitely the best milk stout I’ve had yet, and the first that manages to use the milk sugar as a compliment to the beer rather than something that makes it disgusting and spoiled tasting.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2008 Smells like mocha cofee. Thick, light brown head. I am not a big dark beer fan, no light can be seen through this beer. But this one is decent.. would definetly try it in the future.

Rated 11/17/06: Nice stout, lean but decent nonetheless. Roasted aroma with a kick of sweetness, sugary and appealing. Poured a semi-transparent dark brown, medium head that quickly dwindled and no lacing. Thin for a stout but he smoothness helps alleviate this. Flavor is good, creamy and sweet which really counters the roasted bitterness. Not blown away but it’s a very drinkable tasty stout.

Deep dark ruby brown. Soda like fizzy head. Sweetened coffee nose. Pleasant flavors, coffee, chocolate, faint licorice, subtle smoke, milky sweet. Somewhat thin body ruins this one in my opinion.

Ok, I’ve had enough milk stouts now to know it is one of my more favored styles. Pop the lid on this 12 oz brown bottle and you get than old musty aroma. In the background you can smell some roast hints in there. Rootbeery and choclatey is hiding in the background olfactory. The pour is dark and opaque, very nice representation of a dark beer. Tan off-white head is a girdle around the top of the brew against the inside of the glass. The taste is perhaps a bit more bitter than I prefer for this sweet style. Mild medium burnt bitter appears to attract the back of my throat. You can taste the influence of milk in there. Enjoyable as a dark beer but perhaps to intense to be repeatable as a session. Some milk stouts I have tasted are mild enough to be thought of as a session. Cannot measure up to sammy smiths oatmeal or Mackeson xxx. Even tho Bell’s Cherry stout is not considered a fruit beer, this is slightly better than that. Overall, OK for a sweet stout but could be a little more mannered, the +5% alky shows thru too much. Expected something a little bit different than this, do they make a Baltic stout?

milky, thick and fun. a great stout to drink if you want some ice cream or a glass of milk. aroma is malty and sour, the sour being the milk. the taste isn’t exactly like milk but exactly what i expected, a milky follow up on malt. pour was dark and with about an inch of foam. gret beer to finsh off the nite at the pub.

I’m not a huge stout fan, but I will say this one is pretty tasty. The aroma is full of chocolate and coffee in the nose and the flavor is like a mellowed out drink from starbucks. Its real creamy. Like I said, I’m not huge on stouts but this one would be a repeat buy
