Hanoi (458) - Greater Manchester, - SEP 24, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 Nose is light, coffee, a little cola. Taste is vanilla, hazelnut, figs, slight lactose, sticky sweet slightly vinious finish. As it warmed it got a strong coffee liqueur taste. Mouthfeel far too thin for the style, perhaps suited to warmer climes. A thin stout.

Maxbier (398) - Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Rated blind (wife poured and hid the bottle until I finished my rating). Notes: Dark reddish-black with tan head. Aroma of vanilla, rum, sugar cane, chocolate milk. Creamy velvety, flavors of sugar cane (rum barrel?). Very low carbonation (may be an old bottle). Milky lingering finish.

Garrold (1710) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle. B&M. Clear, very dark red. Has a tan halo to begin with, which disappears completely. Some tarry, fudgy chocolate. Hint of coffee grinds. A little liquorice. Taste is sweet. A bit of powdery dryness. Decent mouthfeel. A bit of cola drink about it. Finishes very light bitter, with a slight tartness.

AshtonMcCobb (2924) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - opaque black with a decent crema head. Nose - treacle with a slight tobacco note. Taste - chocolate nuts and burnt sugar. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - nice sweet stout.

allmyvinyl (4224) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2014
275ml bottle from Beers of Europe. BBE July 2014. Aromas of treacle, dark sugar. Taste is coca cola. But not a bad thing necessarily.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Almost black without a head. Has a milky roasted malt aroma and taste but fairly average for its style. There’s a small sticky sweetness.

JohnCook101 (347) - - AUG 2, 2014
Opaque black, little to no head, aroma of smoke and toffee. Similarly smoky flavour, an oddly water mid section, a fair bit of sweetness and a mild to moderate bitter finish. Decent.

jjsint (920) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle from Tesco for £1. Drunk at home. Black with a bluish-purplish tint, opaque. A brown head rises up quickly this dissipates. Aroma of caramel and molasses. Pleasant enough but it smells a bit artificial. Sickly sweet taste at first, like a mass-produced soda. Sweetness is then tempered by a bit of bitterness, but the sweetness comes back in the finish and aftertaste. Weak body. Not good.

jrodooo5 (1071) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Hmm, certainly a different stout but I’m not sure if it’s a milk stout per say. The aroma is light with just a tiny bit of roastiness shining through. The pour is nearl black w/ a thin tan head that doesn’t leave much lacing. The taste is almost more sour than sweet w/ just a touch of that bitterness in the finish. It’s light and drinkable and I’m sure makes for a nice brew down on the island!

ronaldtheriot (1334) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Stallion Stout has an extremely thick, beige head, an opaque, black-brown appearance, a few visible bubbles, and some lacing along the side of the glass. The aroma is of rich, sweet, creamy, medium-to-dark-roasted malt, dark fruit, licorice, and black coffee. Taste is of those elements, with cafe-au-lait, chocolate powder, and mild hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Stallion Stout finishes semi-dry, powdery, and ultra-drinkable. RJT
