Flat stout that is a little too sweet for my taste. Could use some more depth and spices.

Extremely good beer from a brewery that I did not know before. The taste of chocolate and caramel are the main. Drank at Arendsnest, Amsterdam.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Dark, black, small head. Clear pour, unexpected as this was the bottom of the bottle. Nice roast aroma. Ditto taste. Pleasant burntness, some ashtray hints. Stale rather than ashy. Some milkiness, but very low. Pleasant stout, but unexciting.

tricksta_p (917) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolade, light lactose. Flavour is roasty, creamy, medium sweetness. Good Stout.

Tap tasted on 28/06/2014. Milk stout black colour with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet and dark roasts. Taste is milky,light and smooth with a little of chocolate. Light body and carbonation. Very easy to drink, without strong. Next one please!

imdownthepub (10021) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2014
On tap at t’Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Black with tan head. The beer has a dry bitterness but quite grainy in character even a touch on the sourish side. Lasting on the palate, dry roasted nuts, tarry. Not quite there for me.

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Almost black coloured hue with a brownish and short foamy head. Mildly roasted malty aroma with hints of milk sugar and a touch of chocolate, leather and liquorice. Sweet and delicately roasty bitter flavour, light bodied but not watery mouthfeel with a modest carbonation. Slightly sugary and roasty dark malt character with notes of caramel, chocolate and shy traces of mocha; finishes less sweet than expected with a mildly roasty bitter touch and notes of chocolate in the aftertaste. Not an overly enhanced but quite likeable Milk Stout. 22.V.14

Bottle 330ml
Thanks bierkoning! Dark opaque brown color, steady small brownish head. Caramel, licorice, cough syrup and light tartness in the nose. Light to medium-bodied. Flavor is very similar to aroma: lightly toasted but dominated by caramel and cough syrup. No lactose, more like light tartness. Simple - probably was better fresh on tap.

vipinvelp (2078) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2014
Black with small light brown lacing foam head. Aroma is slightly coffee, some roast. Tastes coffee and some chocolate notes. Good beer, not too heavy. (Amsterdam 201404)
