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.

This is an excellent stout, with strong caramelized malty flavors and a nice balance of hops. Small head and a deep, dark color. A very nice stout.

6/10/15 complex taste. more than mildly carbonated which you can really feel on your tongue. Medium body but the finish is Lightbodyed. It might be better closer to room temperature. Worth trying a six-pack. 4/29/16. An awesome and subtle brew. Comparing it to the Great Lakes blackout Imperial Stout and much prefer this one 5/11/16 nicely balanced. Carmel sweetness. Dark roasted coffee notes. But I can't agree with my previous assessment on carbonation. if anything this is a low carbonation beer. All in all: A good go to beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nitro Can. Ar: Clean roast; ashy and dry; steely herbal hops. Ap: Black and opaque; medium-large tan head; picture-perfect nitro consistency, like a mousse. T: Strong bitter-sweet cocoa; lush, milky malt alternates with cocoa; woodsy hop flavor, with a medium-high bitterness; coffee and spice--black pepper and cinnamon--linger in the finish; medium-low sweetness. P: Medium body with nitro consistency; a coating sensation; finish is dry. O: Interesting combination of a bold stout with nitrogen smoothness; firm roast and malt backbone; very colorful and complex on the palate; I like it!

Tan head and good retention. Smells of malts and chocolate, with a similar sweet taste. Full body, creamy texture with a long finish that coats your mouth a bit. Overall, a good beer

Aus der Flasche im 2016-09 getrunken. Es kostet schon Überwindung dieses Bier kopfüber in ein Glas schießen zu lassen, aber dadurch verwandelt der zugesetzte Stickstoff das Stout in ein besonders cremiges, feinporieges Gebräu. Super lecker mit vollen Geschmaft und schmiegt sich wie Seide an den Gaumen. Wow! Schönes dichtes Aroma und trotzdem süffig. Toll!

Pours completely black with a small tan head. Aroma is nice sweet, slight coffee, butterscotch, vanilla, roasty. Taste is a nice sweet, slight fruity in aftertaste. Lovely mouthfeel, full bodied, coats your mouth, fantastic, has the body of an imperial! Medium-low carbonation. Overall a nice smooth. sweet stout, smells/feels better than it tastes!

Bottle. Very balanced flavor and weight for stout. No outstanding qualities, and a bit too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IslandHaole (1286) - Misawa, JAPAN - AUG 28, 2017
Very dark brown, creamy tan head. Mild coffee scent with hints of milk chocolate. Sweet malts, cocoa, a bit of mineral salt with a light bitter follow. Nice feel with light carbonation, creamy texture. Not bad but nothing special.

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.
