Sweet Stout

The Sweet Stout and Milk Stout originated in England in the early 20th century and were marketed as a tonic for invalids and nursing mothers. The Sweet Stout is very similar to the Milk Stout but its use of unfermentable sugars doesn’t include lactose. Roasted grain combined with the sugars give the aroma and palate a coffee and cream or sweet espresso character. Chocolate and fruity esters may be present.
