chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2006
Bottled. A top find from the vintage ("not for drinking") bottle stall at GBBF, consumed at Kookfest, September 2006. Obviously old, but not clear how old. Reasonably, and surprisingly, drinkable too. Dark and sweet, with plenty of milky chocolate in evidence. It has certainly retained some flavour although the sweetness has survived better than any other elements so it does come over as a little sugary. Otherwise quite pleasant.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2006
Bottle. Black colour. This was pretty good for its age. Mouthfeel is flat and sweet to start, slightly milk chocolatey, with some roasted malt/mocha in the finish. I would also go with Tia Maria and sherry as others mention.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2006
Bottle @ Kookfest. Sweet chocolate milk with hints of sherry (looks like cherry in my notes but sherry might make more sense as its vintage?). A bit flat and lifeless.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle at Kookfest 06. Black, nutty sour aroma. Not much of a head. Got some toffeeish/milky thickness. Like a choc milkshake. Tia Maria flavour. Surprisingly good.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2006
Kook’s Farewell Bash. Vintage bottle. Milky, soft mild stout. Quite refreshing. Hints of chocolate. Quite light, but very nice. A comment about nourishment on the bottle, led us to think this was a milk stout.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle (Chris_o Gathering06): Lacto flavour. Ruby black with a tan head. Sweet unbalanced lacto flavour. I don’t like it.

Dark and cloudy beer ,very rich in taste ,well hidden alcohol,kind of heavy and sour at the end, not bad after all but wouldn't drink a lot of this stuff
