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.

On tap at Barleys in Knoxville, TN. Poured a dark black color with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is full of malts with coffee and milk coming through. Flavor is really rich and nice. Tastes somewhat like an oatmeal stout. Coffee, oatmeal, and milk are the main notes. I was definitely surprised by this one.

Cool bottle and logo but the beer is a letdown. It seemed quite thin and watery. Not at all what I was expecting.

Thanks to the person who sentthis to me. Pours brown with a light tan head. Smells of chocolate, cocoa, some yogurt and spices. Tastes of dark chocolate, sweet malt and bitter hoppy elements. Finishes creamy.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Opens up with a mild roasty and milky aroma. Flavors were equally mild, and included roast and caramel qualities. Instead of a hoppy finish, it was very milky and thats where the beer lives up to its name. Texture was creamy, but thin for me overall. The sweetness was pleasant enough, but a bit too milky for me, and I felt that element was a bit outcast. Unique, but does it work? Not sure.

starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Pure brown colour, dark with a tan head. Aroma is sour milk and coffee. Thick mouthfeel, more coffee and malts in the flavour. Very drinkable but not very appetizing.

Draught - Flying Saucer Germantown - Pours a rich deep brown with a creamy tan head. It has a very smooth palate of flavors and is great with bar food. I had to pace myself so I could watch the game before passing out. I would recommend this to any dark beer lover.
