3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours opaque deep black brown with big foamy tight creamy tan head. Aromas of sweet malts, rum, booze, pitted fruits, chocolate, lactose milk, floral, herbal, lightly grassy hop aromas, light caramel and butterscotch. Medium body, milky sweet light creamy flavour and mouthfeel, a touch of roast and hop bitterness. Finish is lightly sweet, refreshing, milky - a touch burnt and a touch vegetal. Not bad for a macro.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich, deep dark brown coloured body with a thick brown base and a nice, three centimetre tall microfoamed deep brown head - very nice looking. Aroma of roasted malt, light coffee, milk chocolate, figs, prunes, nuts, pecans and a touch of alcohol - nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive creamy and malty flavours at first with some metal twangs and a bit of nuttiness noticeable, along with a defined creamy flavour from the milk/lactose and a good rich sweetness from prunes and raisins. Aftertaste is nice with a light complexity and some minor chocolate flavours to couple with the malt and pit creaminess. Overall, a nice milk-based stout with a rich flavour and nice maltiness - great to sample, perhaps this has gotten better over time, but there isn’t much sediment and I don’t remember much different from when it was fresh. I sampled this 330 mL can purchased from the Skukuza Rest Camp in/near Nelspruit, South Africa, inside Kruger National Park, South Africa on 21-August-2011 sampled the fourth time after this trip going back to South Africa, in just a few hours with two kids, on 08-August-2015 where i’ll surely pick up more of this fine beer.
