3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Dark chocolate mocha with milk. Poured an opaque black with a large khaki ring. Body feels thinner than what I would expect for a cream stout. Baker’s chocolate. Pizzelles. Charcoal smoke. Burnt marshmallows. Greek coffee. Vanilla bean. Nice dark flavors though the milk sugars don’t add the creaminess that was expected. Disappointed.

04-APR-2014, bottle @summer house - Marielyst.
Dense Black body with lasting, lacing, creamy Brown head.
Aroma of berries, roast, and a touch of smoke.
Taste is much more tar, roast and smoke, less berry.
Very dense and creamy with soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite intense roasted maltiness for sweet stout, dark choco character, bit coffee with notes of vanilla. Very decent, but quite boring.. oh and yes.. it is quite creamy and smooth

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (ALEhouse, Riga) (6+:4:7-:4:13=3.4)
Had this after the super-smooth tres blueberries, that may influence the score. Nice rich roast in the aroma, but not climbing out of the glass and hugging me. Basically black, tan keggy head. Massive in the mouth. Rich roast and burnt retronasasls, some odd cherry stone aspects. Sticky fullness, in the palate, burnt acidity, carbonation relatively soft. Has a potency to it, but dowesn’t say boozy. And it’s massively burnt, leaving a dry mouth, but without the biting astringency you sometimes get. Finish is dry and a little hollow, but that cavity later resonates with nice dry old bitter hops, that I like. Good, but not great strong stout. Not getting the horrible sweetness of some milk stouts. (not a fan, can you tell?)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vot šis jau man patīk, bet nu alus kā ēdiens. Biezs, tumīgs, arī roasted, daudz dedzinātā un kopumā labs balanss. Pats labakais- alkohola izjūta, nav pa grādīgu, nav pa pliekanu. Par sweet stout gan nenosauktu.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Pours black-ish with a small beige head that doesn't lace. Roasty aroma. Taste is like a stout - very roasted malty, this one a bit hoppy too, coffee, lactose and licorice as well. Smooth and sweet. Full body. Low carbonation. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep silky burnt umber color with a finger of khaki foam. Lots of creamy chocolate, smooth mouthfeel, vanilla, roast, flat cola, lingering nilla wafer cookie. Chuggable, alcohol is well integrated.
