3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark color with brown head. Aroma has sweet, roasty notes and also a hint of chocolate. Taste is also roasty and bittersweet with some cacao in the background. Carbonation is a bit high for the style. Pretty nice overall but not one of the best.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was clear opaque with diminished creamy beige 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are roast barley, black mild coffee, soft lactose sweetness with slight hints of toffee nuts, no alcohol. Taste are mild coffee upfront gives way to Bakers chocolate mid sip. The finish is roasted barley but not bitter. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with medium chewy body, then clean yeast balanced milk stout. Overall a good balanced milk stout try it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample @ 6de Gents Bierfestival 2015.
Brune foncée, fin beige.
Arôme est malté, avec pas mal de grillé, rétro légèrement houblonné citronné.
Palais est malté, douce avec une pointe de lactose? Grillé léger qui accompagne bien une certaine douceur, le tout dans un style assez anglais, fini sec et terreux.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
At GBF. Very dark chestnut coloured beer with very thin and quickly dissipating head. Aroma has a smoked bacon quality to it - unexpected in a milk stout - apart from hazelnuts, caramel, grass, toasted bread and dried apricot. Smooth, oily mouthfeel but less full and creamy than expected from the style, clean fruitiness, caramelly with a toasted edge, even a bit roasted in the end with a peppery hop accent. Good stout, but not what one would expect from a milk stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
No head whatsoever over near black reddish-brown beer - looks a bit dead. Nutty, roasted, meatroast and rust. Sweet-roasted flavour, again meatroast, caramel. Well-bodied (certainly for its ABV), slick but undercarbonated. Not very lively (here?) and maybe hence not very exhilarating.
