Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2012
0.33l bottle. This one pours a deep dark brown body and it has an impressive big light tan head that sticks around for a while. Tons of sweet milk chocolate on the aroma, some light ashes, coffee and dark fruits also, but the milk chocolate really sticks itself out here. Quite nice. It’s quite lively carbonated and it has a mild oily mouthfeel. In the taste I get dry espresso powder, dry chocolate, smooth roastiness, a little bit of bitter cold coffee, and tones of cardboard in the end. Leaving a mild dry tongue in my mouth. Enjoyable. 01.08.2012

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2012
Tap at the Euston Tap - 11/08/12. Off black with a minimal head soon thinning to nothing. Sweet malts and chocolate on the nose. Similar taste to aroma with a little nutiness. Medium bodied with a sweet finish.

BenH (2012) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle. Cola black/brown with short lasting tan head. Faint chocolate aroma, some burnt toast. Similar taste, nice roast character. Slightly sweet with a light lingering chocolatey finish. Not bad

Cunningham (4000) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2012
Black colour with a small beige head. Roasted malt, coffee and light chocolate aroma. Moderate sweet flavour. A bit dry texture. Chocolate, some roasted malt and a bit coffee in the flavour. Nice stout.

JorgeLee (1065) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2012
Tap at Euston Tap. Dark black colour, no head. Not much of an aroma. Very pleasant taste, soft malt, I got more of the milk and less of the chocolate. Being quite sweet the finish is pretty brief. Slightly thin palate. Well made, but I never get very excited by this style.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with barely any highlights at all, just some brown where the light shines through. Massive tan head that stays for ages, good amount of lacing. Aroma is subdued at first due to the massive foamy head, but there are definitely some burnt malts in here which gives it a slightly acidic character, some dark chocolate, and something a bit metallic. Smells like it’ll be sweet on the tongue. Fairly straight forward flavourwise, burnt notes and chocolate. Some sourness from the burnt malts. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Decent, drinkable stout, nothing incredible.

Foffern (1061) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a black colour with a big frothy brown head. Nice and powerful roasted aroma with coffee, dark wood, dark bitter chocolate, hint of smoke and some lactose. Lighter flavours of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Slick and sparkly mouth feel. Bitterness = light+. Wonderful aroma but more easy in the mouth. A really nice and easy-drinking milk stout.

Put off a little by the smell but it turned out to be good. Dark and deep red. A little thin perhaps.

Rangi (508) - NEW ZEALAND - JUL 24, 2012
Nice stout, pitch black poor. As would be expected chocolate flavor comes through on a background of tasty roasted malts that add to the chocolate and add a slight hint of coffee. Easily drinkable and enjoyable.
