Pours very black indeed with a fairly dark mocha and very thick dense head. aroma is roasted malts, sweet. Taste is sweet chocolate with a nice bitter chocolate which lingers a fair while, hint of liquorice. Thinner mouthful than I would have expected from the style but it works. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svesse (5898) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2012
(Cask at Holborn Whippet, Holborn, London, 20 Nov 2012) Black colour with creamy, beige head. Roasted, malty nose with milky chocolate, moccha and cacao. Malty, roasted taste with lots of chocolate and cacao, notes of coffee (with milk) and a fairly sweet finish with a light bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Very nice beer with a tasty chocolate character.

mR_fr0g (2019) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle as part of the 12 stouts of christmas. Aroma is sweet dry roasty. Pitch black with light tan head. Flavour is moderately sweet chocolate dry roasted bitter coffee that hangs around the mouth for a long while. Flavour is a lot less harsh and more rounded when the beer warms up a bit. Palete is full and smooth carbonation is soft nut present.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2012
A little too sweet but fine example of the style. A brewery near me in Pennsylvania makes a milk stout but the lactose is too much. The malt bill with this brew balances out the lactose out very well and the hops add a good bitter edge which is not too much to overshadow the coffee like grain finish.
