3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At just on cool and into a tulip. Pour is shy but raises a thin, compact and mostly lasting tannish crown. Body is black, opaque with just a little darkest brown in the shallows. Aroma is soft and pleasant and reminiscent of milk chocolate and dusty, roasted grains. Chalky, smoky roasted grain palate. Quite nutty with a hint of cocoa butter adding a sweetness to it but no slickness. The finish is husky and smoky, dry and subtley bitter. Quite simple, pleasing and quaffable. Nice body, not big, not small, and quite smooth. Better than anticipated. (75cL, BB 14/06/12, Cellarbrations Kinross)

Nice and sweet aftertaste. A lot nicer than Guiness in my opinion. Now available on tap as well!

Great example of a milk stout and the best product SAB puts out. Prefer it in bottle than on nitrogen tap. Great sweet molasses aroma and tastes like Christmas in a bottle!

Can. Pours a dark black color with a frothy tan head. Dark malty aroma with a sense of vanilla. Silky aroma as well. Nice, smooth, mily taste with some hops in the background. Very pleasant. For a South African beer, I’m very impressed.
