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.

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, - APR 29, 2013
355ml bottle in Porterhouse Cork. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Subtle aromas of creamy milk, coffee and oats. Taste is medium sweetness, light bitterness and light sourness. Milk really comes through on the aftertaste, but the beer is well too lively for a stout. Very fizzy, I thought. Would like to try the nitro version to see if theres an improvement.

Some how not quite enough flavor for me. Was expecting something sweeter. sort of coffee bean up front with a lingering sweetness on the back end. its very well balanced between the two, so thats probably why its rated so highly. I just like my milk stouts to be further on the sweet end. its not bad tho.

No cascading nitro bubbles like when dispensed from a tap, but a nice enough appearance with good head and some lacing. Aroma is a fudgy chocolate and taste is pleasantly sweet without the overbearing lactose taste that messes up so many milk stouts. Finish has a little dry bitterness to go along with the continuing sweetness and, dangerously, no hint of the 8% ABV. Quite good. Enjoyed from a bottle labeled Milk Stout Nitro.

Aroma of roasts coffee and chocolate. No hop bitterness. Appearance is black opaque with thin brown foam. Good lacing. Flavor is roast malts, coffee and chocolate. Some slight bitterness from roast malts balanced by sweetness that lingers in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Medium low carbonation. Medium high body. Overall: a great example of milk stout. Prefer nitro version to regular. Great dessert beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nitro: Dark black pour, thick tan white head, retention/lacing. Roasty, chocolate, and smoke aroma. Light sweetness/bitterness. Smooth and creamy, but overly light. Like the lingering roastiness and made a great dinner/dessert pairing.
