Cristobal37 (536) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 14, 2016
Faint chocolate milk aroma from the bottle. Nice dark stout with dissipating tan head. Pretty light on flavor, but body is milky. Mildly sweet with a similar rooty spiciness similar to Guinness Extra Stout. Not altogether bad, but not a great stout.

kapusil (961) - HUNGARY - JAN 7, 2016
0.25l bottle, thanks to Cristobal37. Black body, thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa and floral hops. Taste of caramel, toast, sour cherry and cocoa. The finish is not so long lasting, the body is weak, and it’s not that sweet for a milk stout, but still a nice one.

TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2015
The foam is nougat colored and creamy. The aroma is gentle malty with weak mocha tones. The taste is a little time to develop in the mouth, but the wait is worth it. Weak mocha flavor blends bold with roasted malt and the mouth feeling is creamy. The finish is very little hoppy, but is instead delicate mocha-like with a little touch of English licorice. 3.8 percent for a stout does not sound like much, and it is not, but its flavors are very rich anyway.

MarkoNm (1998) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 9, 2015
Pours a dark brown with some red undertone, topped with a medium sized beige colored head. Malty aroma, biscuity, caramel and chocolate, perhaps some dark fruity notes. Taste is sweet and a bit bready, with significant soury notes.
