Enjoyable brew with a rich, complex coffee taste, mocha, a pinch of lactose that blends well and doesnít over sweeten. The pour is a pure opaque black with a creamy tan head, light carbonation. Rich, creamy, roasted and malty with a fine italian espresso backbone.

reebtogi (4885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
500ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light brown head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness and some vanilla in the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a well crafted stout that is well balanced and tasty.

500ml bottle from Slowbeer, Melbourne. You could be in a coffee roastery for the pungent roasted coffeebeans which dominate the nose together with notes of dark roasted malts and hints of vanilla plus cherries. Palate is richer than the ABV would suggest with creamy malty coffee flavours and a light-medium dry hop finish. It is not too sweet which is a real plus point in my book. Pours matt black with a (you guessed it) latte-coloured head of ample size and duration. Enjoyed this one.

Hop_Hedonist (333) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2015 Pleasant enough but didnít rock my world - not intense enough - although mouthfeel a bit rough, easy enough drinker. Nowhere in the league of istout. A bit forgettable.

wvhoran (449) - Tasmania, - AUG 13, 2015
Draught at Mikkeller Bangkok. Pours black with a small tan head. The aroma is coffee. It smells like a nice cold filter coffee. Crazy. The flavour has traces of dark malt but itís dominated by black coffee with just a touch of lacto. Well made.

Maris (1165) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2015
From a 500ml bottle on 8/8/2015 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a deep brown with a big tan head. Has a big, strong, really pleasant aroma of roasted coffee beans. The flavour is also dominated by strong coffee, with some chocolate, roasted malt and a touch of vanilla. Itís on the sweetish side for a stout, but still very well balanced, with a decent roasty bitterness in the background. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is a damn fine, top notch coffee infused stout.

hawthorne00 (2874) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown with a s,all tan head. Aroma of coffee, brown sugar. On the light side of medium bodied, low carbonation. Not very sweet. Lovely fruity lightly roasted coffee, a little roasted malt, gentle bitterness with some spices. Like the c4 Double Brown, this should be too much about coffee and not enough about beer even though itís really good coffee. But it works.

Niksko (504) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2015
Pitch black, light tan head. Nose is pure, roasty coffee, a little caramel. Flavor is dark roasted coffee, like drinking an espresso, caramel, milk chocolate. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. The coffee character here is out of control, really wonderful. A little one dimensional outside of the coffee, but I can forgive that because the coffee is just so wonderful.

Smooth as silk. Stout bitterness leavened/expanded by coffee and lactose flavourings. On tap at the Wheaty.

I had this on Nitro at Vulture Lane in Auckland and I canít imagine a better Milk Stout. It Tasted as close to a flat white coffee as can be imagined in a beer. The Nitro gave it a very creamy mouth feel that complimented the sweet coffee flavor tremendously well. I also had it without the Nitro, and while it was great, it was the gas that really took this to such an outstanding level. Smooth, somewhat sweet, and bursting with coffee and roasted malt goodness. My only disappointment is that I suspect I may never find it in Nitro again. Another great one from 8wired.
