From the bottle, pours fairly flat without a head. Aroma of chocolate and roastdd malt. Sweet throughout, but not cloying because the beer is well balanced by the dark malt bitterness. A prper winter beer.

Gravity dispense at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough BF - 12/10/12.
Dark Mahogony brown approaching black with a frothy coffee head - this looks the part !
Dry roast malt nose with tones of milk chocolate and a little coffee.
Full on milk chocolate taste with particular emphasis on the milk. If you are lactose intolerant don’t go here ! Rich creamy milk flavour combined with a bag of crushed maltesers!
Smooth drinking medium bodied beer with soft carbonation.
Overall this was good stuff, never had a milk stout so milky! A little oversweet at times. I’ll definately seek this out again, but would limit myself to a half.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
August 20, 2012 - handpull at The Southampton Arms. Ruby-black pour, thick-looking, decent foamy tan cask head. Smells and tastes of mocha and malt beverage, very little alcohol - sort of sweet and cloying, lactic even. Slick, mildly carbonated, finishes quickly with a sweet cocoa finish. Wouldn’t drink it often, but it seemed okay - I would like to see more sourness though, less candy bar chocolate.

Keg at Holyrood 9a. Black with an off-white head. A thick flavoursome stout. I just think that Milk stouts are not for me. The sweetness was difficult for me to stomache.

Bottle from Pete. Jet black, no heed. Smells soft and faintly sweet. Taste initially disappoints, as it seems to lack impact; but wait.... With each sip it takes hold. Becomes sweet, thick, smooth and coats the throat. Milkshake, super gentle roast. Compelling.
