mile (3810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown- almost black, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty – light oat and sweetish aroma, light roasted malt and (milk)chocolate, faint salty licorice. Body is medium, malty – light oat and sweetish flavor, faint roasted malt (milk)chocolate. Finish is average, malty - light oat and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light roasted malt (milk)chocolate, light salty licorice. Well...It’s sweet (and lacks bitterness). For those with sweet tooth.

ShivanDragon (3426) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
zwart bier met bruinige kraag, in echt stout glas, aroma van zoetigheid, chocolade, mouten, en iets van de lactose zoals in een melkstout. smaken zijn redelijk zoet (lactose), iets van melkchocolade, have, mouten droppig, zwak bitter, redelijk moutig, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, goed zoet. medium tot volle body, glad tot romig in de mond, lage co2, en zoete afdronk. Geen extreem volle maar zeker een zeer lekkere melk stout. geslaagde poging !

mansquito (5339) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2014
At the brewery: Pours near black with a tan head. Arom ais roasted malt, a hint of licorice, chocolate, an plenty of coffee. Taste is a lingering sweetness. Plenty of sugar and lactose are present in this beer. Tastes like a sugared up cup of coffee with milk, which seems to be what it was going for. Not bad.

kermis (11008) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma of fudge, light chocolate, caramel and sweet malt. Flavour I’d moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

jmgreenuk (7675) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 6, 2014
Tap at the Jopenkerk. Poured a clear dark brown with a big frothy tan head. The aroma is light roasted malt, caramel, toffee. The flavour is medium bitter, light sweet with a smooth, light fruit, alcohol liqourice bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Media bodied with average carbonation. It’s a fine beer but I expected a little more creamy caramel milky smoothness and less of the alcohol inspired bitterness which is starting to dominate.
