COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in cans. Previously 3.0%.
Originally brewed by Mackeson of Hythe in Kent in 1910. This was the first beer to use milk sugar to produce a Milk Stout. The Mackeson brewery was eventually acquired by Whitbread, which in turn was taken over by Interbrew (now AB InBev) who initially produced the beer at their Magor brewery in Wales. Subsequently has been contract brewed by Youngs and latterly by Hydes.

OK - sweet, dry, but very thin, but I suppose you’d expect that for the strength.

Big dark brown lasting head. Nearly opaque black body goes dark brown at edges. Milky burnt caramel aroma with chocolatey notes. Mild sweetish burnt caramel and chocolate taste with milky notes. Dryish background. Soft, mellow mouthfeel. Nice, drinkable. (0.33l can from Sainsbury’s.)

330ml can. Black with a thin tan head; smoky, coffee aroma; smooth with an intense chocolate flavour; sweet and dry finish. An excellent beer for the strength.

Not the worst beer I’ve had. I was surprised at the low 3% alcohol level. I would try it again...seems like it would be good with wings.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 This is a wonderful beer, smooth and sweet. A nice bit of smokiness and not too strong at 3%. I might get away with having two glasses of it. Can’t imagine the Americans liking this, though.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Can, Co-op, Oxford. Grainy Cheerios® aroma, chocolate milk. Mineral sweetness, light coffee and chocolate roast. Gentle carbonation, light creamy palate. A funny stout, but very pleasant and unassuming, and an awful lot of flavor for the strength.

STILL SOME AROUND. I LIKE COFFEE SO I LIKE THIS BEER. EASY TO DRINK AND CREAMY. IT IS COMPLEX BUT THAT COMPLEXITY REMINDS ME OF SUB PRIME COLUMBIAN COFFEE. OR A FRENCH ROAST. I ALWAYS DRINK COFEE WITH EVAPORATED MILK SO THATS KINDA WHAT YOU HAVE HERE. OH WELL EEEHHH!

Deep black colour, a smokey roast malt nose, very mellow quite complex roast malt flavour. Probably the best beer in a CAN that i have had.

Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2007
Nice, dark head and a black beer. The initial flavour is sweet coffee and then some burnt notes of malt and a hint of licorice. The bitterness is low and the overall impression is a bit too sweet.

3.3
NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2007
Bottle. Fairly typical of a sweet stout. Opaque black with a beighe head. Flavor is of coffee and cream with a good bit of sugar.
