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.

Nitro Version. Pours beautifully, with fantastic cascade of brown foamy liquid that carbonation is pushing up like a grains of sand. Beer is very dark, extremely creamy, like a nice milkshake, foam not disappears even after 10 minutes from pouring. Aroma is milky, but also roasted malt is there, some chocolate, sour coffee, pralines, toffee. Taste is super smooth, roasted malts well balanced with lactose cream, and stoutish acidity. Overall this is a superb example of Nitro Milk Stout, tasty stuff.

Nitro Version: Poured in pint glass, very similar in apperance to Guinness Draught (can). Ruby red color with creamy head. Scent: cocoa, coffee and lactic acid. Very smooth and sweet on the palate. Both version of this beer should have separate ratings though since the nitrogen does affect the beers properties.

alexmate (150) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2017
Dark black, but not jet black. Reasonable head with good lacing. Aroma of milk, coffee, cream, caramel and cocoa beans. Taste is similar with some honey and sour cream in the mix, quite sweet with little bitterness. Good beer, but there are better milk stouts out there. Price Paid: 2.29 - 330ml bottle.

dunklermessias (87) - GERMANY - MAR 13, 2017
0,33l Bottle, Nitro label. Hard pour as recommended. Pours withs a fat black color and a very fine, muddy brown head. This time I used Stout-Glassware from Spiegelau the first time and on my opinion does the head preserve much longer and re-builds with each dram/mouthfull. Worth to try! The nose is milky coffee, dark chocolate, lighty cocoa and vanilla. Taste of milky-chocolate-coffee with vanilla. Very creamy and intense at only 6% vol. Very nice bodied Stout. Normaly Stout arent my favorite beers.

Bottle on nitro pours a standard stout with a one finger beige head and no lacing. Aroma is sweet mocha. Flavor is very delicious light coffee, milk, caramel. Aftertaste is simply wonderful. This is one damn good stout!

DATE: March, 12, 2017... OCCASION: Having celebrated Bobs birthday, home for a relaxing afternoon... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith tulip pint... "pouring hard," as the label demands, the immediate single-finger head cascades into an extra finger of light muddy brown,caking into a sponge of uniformity... the show isnt long, but its effect is entertaining... its midnight black body allows nothing through... first sniff is lactic, lightly hopped, briny seasalted, cocoa beans, a bit of coffee bean, vanilla, and some trace earthiness... in all, awakens anticipation... at 6% ABV, warms slightly at the finish, but the the lingering effect is peat smoke and chocolate... a medium-bodied stout that displays texture through the mouth--sweetness to pique the tastebuds, but weighty on the back end to keep sips from piling up on themselves... thick, dense brown foam streaks the glass to its finish... creamy and nourishing, housing itself in the cheeks with sweetness... chocolate, coffee, sweet vanilla bean, and that lactic kick expectant in a milk stout makes for an equally sweet draw, one that is more nuanced than the more popular sweet or milk stouts out there... a great mid-afternoon sipper, hearty and flavorful, with holding power to spare... a nice (the best?) part of the mix pack I got from these brewers...
