UXO (1133) - CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Appearance: opaque black with brown margins, one finger of fluffy light beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: espresso, lactose, light chocolate and roasty notes. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (6/10) Palate: medium body tending slightly to the watery, lively to moderate carbonation, medium duration building bitter and light tart finish. (3/5) Not really what I was expecting. Yes, there’s a little lactose milky sweetness in it, but there’s also a surprising tart note - and though I’m a big fan of sours, that just doesn’t belong in this style. The body is also surprisingly light and thing, buoyed by a higher than expected carbonation. And the finish, in addition to being marred by the tart note, is less a hop or roasty malt bitterness, and more an over-extracted espresso bean one. A bit of a mess, at least as far as adherence to the style goes. And to be brutally honest, I’m liking it less as the pint progresses. Not one of their better offerings. (12/20)

Dark brown with minimal beige head. Aroma of coffee. Taste is watered down coffee, a bit sour, not very sweet. More a porter than a stout. Nothing amazing.

Perfect milk stout. Draft pour at Hair of the Dog in Bangkok. Black with off white head. Milky, creamy, cocoa and vanilla. Covers the check marks on deliciousness

procraste (388) - FRANCE - DEC 8, 2015
nez sur le chocolat amère. Un peu liquide mais ce n’est pas bien grave. Une jolie pointe de chocolat au lait sympathiquement crémeux. L’amertume houblonnée vient ensuite et donner quelques notes d’agrumes. Une sorte de stout qui tire vers la Black IPA légère ? Une porter houblonnée ? Bien agréable ce petit côté "lactique".

Definitely one for a coffee lover, but I found it a little too overpowering for my liking.

Ferris (9807) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle - Rich roasty coffee with a nice chocolate sweetness. Deep black brown with almost no head. Deep dark chocolate, coffee roast and a nice sweet bitterness. Long silky finish. Very nice.

Bottle to pint glass Coffee, chili pepper, and toasted malt. Black, 2 cm, frothy, light tan head with poor retention and almost no lacing. Taste is coffee, toasted malt, a little soy, and chili. Nice one...I would have expected some lactose, but hey, the chili is an unexpected bonus.
