If you enjoyed Cream Stout or Watknee's Cream Stout (Watney's), you'll love this kit!
A jet-black ale with a roasted-malt character that's offset by residual sweetness and full body - think of sweetened black coffee. De-bittered black and chocolate malts yield a pronounced - but not harsh - roast grain quality, while lactose (an unfermentable milk-based sugar) yields a rich sweetness and creamy mouthfeel. Very nice as an after-dinner drink instead of coffee, or with chocolate desserts.

I usually brew all-grain but, because of time restraints, I tried this extract kit. I was very happy with the outcome, and may have changed my mind about extract brewing.
This kit is low cost but by far the best I ever had. I added 3 lbs of wheat malt to the boil and use Malto Dextrin with the priming sugar. Both ad to a good head and good retention. Plus ad extra body and mouthfeel. I also add some loran Praline and butterscotch flavoring. But the malts and grains in this kit are amazing. SMOOTH, not ONE bit bitter, creamy. Mildly sweet and loaded with flavor. WILL be ordering more! Just LOVE this kit ! ( I used liquid Omega British ale yeast in a can of fast start)
Last week I would have given it a 4 star but it keeps getting better. It was an easy brew. I will brew again.
