Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Transparently black. Rich roasty coffee aroma. Mid sweet with soft mouthfeel and fairly light body. Coffee with cream with spicy hops atop. Flavourful, soothing and beautifully drinkable. Long bitter finish. A winner!

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 10th January 2012
Cask in the craft. Deep red brown clear beer, small pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Sweet chocolate tones with a little tang. Underneath is pleasing red fruits that really round off the beer. Mild minerals. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Really nicely joined up and a pleasant surprise.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Draft House, Tower Bridge, London. Black with cream head. Dark roasted malty, grainy body carrying a sweet , chocolatey flavour with hints of sweetish nut and a milky flavour. Lasting but a little glutinous on the tongue. I struggled a little.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lovely and dark - a chocolate colour, and a lovely spongy head to match. Doesn’t smell sweet like many milk stouts do. It’s a good rich roast, a touch of coffee if anything. Phil gets crab salad too, bizarrely. Creamy feel in the mouth, and you do get a slight sweetness, in particular in the early finish. Nice. Good mellow roast. Probably one of the best milk stouts we’ve ever had.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 Cask conditioned Handpump Cask & Kitchen London. A very dark brown coloured beer with an off-white bubbly head. A good bitter roasty stout. Definite chocolate notes but they don’t present as particularly sweet. There are mocha notes and a touch of fruit. This is really tasty. Score 4.1
Subsequent rating scored 3.9. Average becomes 4.0

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green into an English Half pint jug (Jan ’12).
Pours dark chestnut brown verging on off-black with a small white head that held up for 4 or 5 minutes then thinned to line the edges.
Roasted malts on the nose and a bitter chocolate aroma dominating
Plenty of this roasted malt flavour in the taste along with chocolate (again more bitter than sweet) a little caramel and a burnt sugar taste in the background. Maybe a hint of roasted coffee in the flavour as well?
Quite full bodied for 4.5% but nowhere near the ’chewy’ category
Plenty of lacing on the glass throughout drinking
In the aftertaste I got the ’creamy’ aspect of this beer ! Remember - MILK chocolate stout!
A creamy bittersweet roasted finish - most pleasant!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, handpump at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell, London 6th Jan 2012 Black in colour with a slim head. Whilst this has a pleasant roastiness it is more than balanced out by a soft indulgent creaminess, strong maltiness throughout and yet there is a lingering bitterness, the finish is erring towards the dry. Decent chocolate stout, quite rich, creamy and enjoyable and not too sweet. [b> A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov13 3.5
