Bottle. Black with a large gorgeous foamy head. Malty, latte, some sweet vanilla and a faint taste of old fireplaces. Gets better as it loses the intial carbonation fizz and warms up. This is a great Sunday morning beer.

500ml bottle. Almost completely opaque with a slight ruby tinge and a small, very dark head. Aroma of toast and coffee. Coffee flavours with a little smoke. Burnt caramel and plenty of malt. This has a real treacle sweetness which is tempered by a decent amount of bitterness, though the overall flavour may be just a touch too sweet.

A fine dark colour, small frothy head, aroma of chocolate and roasted coffee, a sweet but not sickly flavour, and a great smooth mouthfeel. I want another.

Looks much as youíd expect from a stout and it has a light malty scent. Itís sweeter than I expected but it isnít sickly for it.

Danís right, this one grows as it goes on, the taste takes hold and settles in. Like a milkshake for adults with a taste for the good stuff. Ripper.

Bottle at home. Don't normally like milk stouts but this one is very light on the lactose, so much so that it is barely noticeable, tastes of milk coffee but without the lactose cloy. Much better than I expected and a good beer overall.
