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.

Bottle @WholeFoods Looks great, taste is good, but it was a bit watery & thin...though very refreshing. Chocolaty, sweet, with a bit of mocha. Not one of my fave sweet stouts, but not bad.

Bottle. Pours a black colour with a fluffy beige head, sweet malt aroma, the taste is medium bitterness and with a dry bitter finish.

Can. Pretty close to black with a mid tan head. Aroma of mocha and singed sugar. Just shy of medium bodied, soft rather than smooth. Tastes as it smells. Not too sweet with some lightening grassy bitterness. Straightforward, pleasant, harmonious - everything it should be.

BeardedAvenger (827) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Can at Rose and Thistle, Frimley. Sweet choc and coffee aroma. Roasty. Dark with cola tints. Creamy beige head. Served overly chilled so that probably reduced its impact. Bitter high notes with a sweet creamy core. Coffee, chocolate and lactose. Thick. Oily/creamy. A fizz of carbonation. Low key finish. Not cloying like some. Enjoyable.

hauxe (832) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2017
Pours virtually black from the bottle and leaves a tan, creamy head. Aroma is roasted coffee, chocolate, heavy cream. Taste is milky sweet, nutty, uneventful. Finish is short and lightly sweet. Body is medium and silky smooth. Not bad.

12floz nitro bottle, BBD: 09.05.2017, paid $1.50 unit price. A soft, even, foamy head sits atop a near black body that releases a mild roast and sweet aroma. Creaminess acts to mute roasted malt flavors. The end result is a beer with a flavor profile comparable to a cup of coffee that is half milk with a packet of sugar. It is what it is, and it is decent.

Towey1989 (2917) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Can at Beerdock Leek. Pours a deep brown to black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee, a little dark fruits and subtle lactose. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee and subtle lactose. Medium bodied, smooth texture and soft carbonation. A soft but dry, roasted malt bitterness in the finish. A very good milk stout, smooth and a creamy mocha flavour. Enjoyable.

LCI. Uit de fles geschonken (MS-Nitro). Mooie stout, zacht in de mond met een volle smaak, smaken van koffie en chocola en wat rokerig. Prima!

Exactly what I expect. Dark chocolate and coffee in the aroma, in taste more sweetness, caramel. Nice milk stout.

Bobbyns (7) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUN 15, 2017 does not count
Nice and sweet. Was weary on trying something new. I really did enjoy will definitely get again
