Pours an opaque black with a nice creamy long lasting brown head leaving some lace up the glass. Aroma is sweet creamy coffee, roasted malts, and chocolate. Flavour is bitter dry roasted malts, coffee, sweet cream, and dark chocolate. Definitely has the dark stronger coffee characteristics with a good balance with the cream. Tasty brew for sure.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear black with a nice frothy brown head that leaves a bunch of lacing. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, basic a nice creamy latte. Taste is coffee, latte, cream with a nice bitterness throughout. Moderate carbonation bordering on a bit too high but you still get the creamy effect, could be a bit better with a lower carbonation but still a great milk stout overall.

Bottle bought in Denmark, pours near black with a fine thick beige head, nose brings cocoa, hints of ginger and cinder toffee, and a touch of milk. Body is initially dry and roasty with a slightly cremy texture, then treacle emerging in the mid-body, along with a spicy burnt caramel and roast coffee note. Finally a long burnt-bitter coffee and milk chocolate finish.

From a 500ml bottle on 2/6/2013 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours close to black with a biggish head that subsides quickly. Has a pleasant chocolate malt aroma and some slight roasty notes. The flavour is a lovely balance of coffee and chocolate, with a medium roasty bitterness. Has a fullish body and medium bitterness. A very nice stout.

Pours black with a tan head.
Nose shows coffee, roasted malt and little else. Nice though.
Bittersweet flavours of roasted malt and roasted coffee again. The coffee seems a bit stale though.
Could use a little more carbonation.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with dark tan head. Huge roasted coffee and dark chocolate nose, with a light soy aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, cocoa, espresso, soy milk and an earthy yeast. Body was a bit thinner than I expected, was hoping for thicker. Nice beer for a winter night.
