JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Deep brown/black pour with a thick tan head. The aroma is quite chocolatey. Fairly rich aroma with a moderate sort of sweetness. Has a bit of soft vanilla and caramel through the middle. Really silken palate. Delicious.

ruigo (1270) - PORTUGAL - DEC 25, 2014
50cl bottle. Dark brown colour with a small soapy tan head. Chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and hops in the aroma. Soft to average carbonation and medium to full body. Taste is well balanced with a long roast finish. Overall, a nice beer.

Bootlegger007 (70) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2014
Black in colour head diminished quickly, light stout aroma, caramel and chocolate, mild flavours, creamy yet a light body, fizzy carbonation, mild style of a stout I was left wanting more from it.

Cantabrian (883) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 5, 2014
Lovely appearance, black with a creamy cream head, aroma of dark chocolates and red currants, with a touch of burnt toast. Flavour is sweet (that dark chocolate), berryish and a touch bitter from roast malts. The fruitiness disappears in the finish. No nonsense coffee flavours in this good sweet stout. Nice chalky palate. This is a classic. I love a milk stout, and the Brits know how to make a good one.

Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, (Selfridgesi veinipood, £ 3,45), 50 cl. Sisaldab gluteeni ja laktoosi - oodata on head kõhuvalu. Aroom on väga meeldiv, pehme ja soe, magus, isegi lääge, veidi röstiselt hapukas, kõrbenud banaanine, alkoholiga küpsetatud mustikamoosikoogine, suti äädikane. Kehalt keskmisest vast raskepoolsem, kuid seejuures libe ja pehme, pea olematu mulliga. Maitselt magus, marjakoogine, kergelt tumešokolaadine, kohviröstine ja kõrbenud suhkrune, väga väikese mõrkja lõpuga. Järelmaik jääb linnaseliselt magusakas; kurku jääb kipitama mingi halb tunne, suulaes kuiv. Kokkuvõttes paras magustoit, mis eriti sümpaatsena ei tundu - asi on vist laktoosis, mis peletab juba puhtalt psühholoogilisel tasandil. Ometi... nii maitselt kui lõhnalt päris hea.

Giochaurand (93) - FINLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Tap. Pours opaque and with low head. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee. Taste is soft sweet and bitter with coffee. Served maybe a bit too cold to properly get more flavours.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
Cask gravity at Le Gothic’s Wandsworth Beer Festival on 26 Oct 2012. Poured black, with a scummy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, vanilla and condensed milk. Full mouth feel. Semi-sweet flavours of liquorice, fruit cake and molasses, with some ash. Finish was burnt malt, coffee and treacle.

Cask at norwich beer festival2014: Creamy chocolate aroma looks like a glass of flat cola, tastes rich and creamy with that nice lactose twang.
