3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reasonable - think it lacked the oomph needed for a low abv stout. Not sure what the lactose adds but pleasant enough

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with a medium-sized tan head. The nose is mild, some chocolate, cream, light hops. The taste is mellow, mildly sweet, very little bitterness. Some roasted malts, but generally all you get is the smooth mouthfeel. Light carbonation. Overall, OK, but there isn’t enough in the flavor department for me...

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 500ml bottle. My first encounter with a milk stout. Black with a thin brown cap. Aroma doesn’t give away much; slightly roasty and chocolately. Fairly low carbonation and slightly viscous. I like the silky smooth mouthfeel, which can probably be attributed to the lactose, but I just feel this is lacking something. There isn’t a great deal in the taste and it feels a bit weak. Not bad though.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pitch black with thick toffee head. Aroma is smooth, milky coffee and chocolate syrup, flavours of milk chocolate shake, fudge, finishes with a lovely creamy yet smokey aftertaste which is very pleasant indeed. Enduring flavour is sweet and delicious. Mouthfeel is thick and indulgent, awesome.

[500ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk, as part of ’12 stouts of Christmas’] Black pour, decent white head. Slightly creamy, cereal nose. Not as roasty as the Bristol Stout. Creamy finish, relaxed, quite mellow. Finishes quite chalky – milk of magnesia on the aftertaste

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2012 12 stouts of Christmas tasting with Craig and Rich. Pours a dark brown colour with a thin, light tan head. Aroma of Weetabix malt, chocolate and a little milk. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a little CO2 prickle. This would make a nice breakfast beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Brouge, Richmond. It pours very dark brown, with an off-white lace. The nose is cafe latte, milk chocolate, sweet liquorice and a touch of roasted malt. The taste is milk, chocolate, caramel, cola, sweet liquorice, cafe latte and some toasted malt, with a sweet finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Solid, but a too sweet for me.
