Leighton (11452) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle. A super-solid beer. Pours a dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Nose of bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor was lightly sweet with considerable bitter, burnt malt character. Very rich, big-bodied and smooth. Some mild hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Awesome.

bhensonb (11276) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle numbered 8150. Dark brown/black color with a tan smear for head. Aroma of dark toasted malt, and something like vanilla. Near medium body with mild, smooth carbonation. Flavor is dark toasted, near burnt, malt with coffee and a touch of vanilla. Then it seems more like anise, and sucking on dark chocolate. The finish is nearly dry, and bitter like baker’s chocolate. Now the body seems fuller. This is strangely variable stuff. Tastes really good.

thewolf (11193) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 15, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.
Pours very deep brown with slight red edges. The head is a thing of beauty. Four fingers thick, extremely creamy, wonderful beige-cappucino colour. Truly a stunning beer to behold. Sweet aroma, lots of dark chocolate, roasted malts, some milk, some coffee and Nutella. Lowish carbonation, rather elegant mouthfeel. Though it is not fat, it maintain a good degree of fill. Flaovur is very well-balanced. Lots of chocolate, cold coffee, roasted malts and a milky edge. Tastes like a good bar of dark chocolate with slight chips of coffee nibs. NICE!

brokensail (11106) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
A: The pour is just about black. Very little highlights, if any, that I can see. A nice tan/mocha colored head perches itself on top. S: The nose is full of roasted malt and sweet milk chocolate. T: A very interesting flavor profile. A light roasted malt flavor with a very sweet finish. There is quite a bit of chocolate coupled with a mild bitterness. M: A very creamy, smooth mouthfeel. The body is medium, and there’s a moderate level of carbonation. D: The Milk/Sweet stout is a style that’s beginning to grow on me. Generally I am more of an RIS fan, but the sweetness is quite a welcomed change of pace. A great beer, and I’m glad I have another.

rlgk (11051) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 Black, with a great brownish head. Has a wonderful aroma from toffee, butter and milk chocolate. Flavor is milk chocolate as well, some vanilla and with some cream. Very smooth and pleasant with a great hoppy finish. Also it leaves great lacing on the glass.

Koelschtrinker (10848) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Cremig süßmalziger Antrunk, hierbei ist die Süße allerdings nicht sark und störend, wie oft bei solchen Bieren , er unterstützt hier eher das nur mittelmäßig würzige Malz. Frisch und gleichzeitig aromatisch im Mittelteil, das Malz verhält sich zum Teil zurückhaltend. Zum Ende deutlich würziger werdend, sehr cremig und weich-malzig mit ansorechener Frische, wenig holzig-karamellig, im Abgang stark karamellig. Sehr gelungenes Stout von Bells. Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier! -/12/12/11/9/12
