330ml bottle from Beers of Europe, shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours dark brown, near black, thin beige head. Aromas are milk chocolate and... well... nothing else. Taste has a nuttiness, but mostly chocolate. Lacks roastiness and depth for a 7%er. OK.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I was a bit disappointed by this stout, but perhaps I need to give it another try. Pours a very, very dark brown (essentially black) with a thin, bubbly brown head that dissipates very quickly. Complex malt aromas, but difficult to differentiate between the individual directions. Fair amount of CO2, but a somewhat weak body. Unfortunately the alcohol aftertaste is a bit overpowering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle bought at Aeon in KCP, Kowloon City.
Clear, deep Cola blackish brown colour; Half finger head and beige foam which last for 1 minute; small sticky lacing and active carbonation; Sweet aroma of roasted malt, with milk chocolate, very light coffee, sugar, caramel, double cream, light plum and light grass; Pleasant, strong sweet taste of rich dark roast malt, with light metallic, strong liquorices, sugar, milk chocolate, creamed coffee, nuts, light sour notes, light lemon and grassy hops; Mid to light body, quite slick and slightly creamy palate; Mouth feel is rich, nutty, and quite savory dark roasted malt, accompanied by very sweet, herbal and strong liquorices, which gives out a feel of sweetened iced coffee. This is fun! Hoppiness is light grassy nose; light lemon and grass in taste which is not enough to balance the liquorices. Full-on sweet-bitter finish; Slightly dry after taste, Quite easy and very sweet to mouth.
Comments: This stout has a simple but solid foundation - very rich and roasty malt, presentable chocolaty and creamy aroma, and well-hidden strong booze - but that herbal liquorices sweetness is really strong and can be overbearing for some, and if there’s more hops to balance it out, this would be close to perfect. A solid one to enjoy if you have sweet teeth!
