Number Too - This beer is made with milk sugar (lactose) which gives this beer a nice creamy mouth feel which mingles with hints of chocolate and roasty flavors.

ThisWangsChung (747) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is a three finger tan shade. Retention isnít particularly superb, nor did I expect it to be. Lacing isnít great, either. Still, the look of this one puts most imperial stouts to shame. S: Certainly a cream stout, with its big notes of lactose and powdered chocolate. Underlying that is some roasted barley. Smells bigger than it really is. T: An initial wave of opening lactic cream is really pleasant, giving way to a combination of unsweetened chocolate and roasted barley. The aforementioned finish retains its milky twang, helping to balance all of the pleasant roasty bitterness. Iím also happy the lactose doesnít come off as being too acidic. This is my kind of stout, only lacking in terms of depth. M: Creamy and soft, giving way to a semi-dry finish. It does a solid job being moderately easy to drink and feeling big at the same time. Generally, it just FEELS pitch-black. O: While it definitely comes off like a cream stout, there are many times drinking this where I think it might be an imperial stout, and a rock-solid one at that. Certainly itís much better than their One oatmeal stout.

Procent (174) - POLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Aromat czekolady mlecznej, kawy z mlekiem, w tle suszone, słodkie owoce.Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana ciemnobeżowa, bardzo niewielka. W smaku dość ostro... smak lekko piekący, wskazuje na wysokie wysycenie - zbyt wysokie jak dla mnie. Piwo wydaje się przez to dość wodniste. Po "odgazowaniu" nie wydaje się ani creamy, ani sweet. Smakuje jak coś z pogranicza dry stouta i black IPA. Jest wytrawne, palone, ma pewną nutę orzeźwienia, jakby od intensywnego chmielenia. Goryczka jest dość niska, to fakt, ale piwo zdecydowanie jest za ostre względem tego, czego się po nim spodziewałem. Gdzieś w tle jest ta kawa z mlekiem, ale to naprawdę tło. Średnio.
