Well-known old-fashioned milk stout with milk sugar added. Yellow beige, dense foam, colour near black. Gentle aroma of milk powder, chocolate, cream, coffee beans, roasted grains, raisins, caramel. Sweetish taste with very creamy, not to say ’milky’ mouthfeel, caramel smoothness, soft finish with only very light roasted bitterness, as is custom for a sweet stout. I know not everyone likes this waning style, but this is a good example of it.

Svart med tykt kaffelatte skum. Karamell, malt og brunt sukker. Mest søte nyanser av karamell og kandissukker i smaken, med en liten anelse kaffebitter avslutning

Flaske delt med Flemming. Flot sort øl med gult skum, der forsvinder relativt hurtigt. Dufter af ristet malt, men lidt for meget af jordagtig gær. Smagen er umiddelbart sød, men bliver hurtigt lidt vammel og bitter.

Bamsen78 (3105) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable tan head. Clear but weak aroma of coffee, malt and grain, with subtle touches of yeast. Sweetish flavour of malt and yeast, with touches of coffee and milky notes. Faint, bitter notes of hops. Rather rough and dusty aftertaste, with sourish, milky hints. My first Maltese stout. Better than expected but nothing special as such.

The body has a nice dark chocolaty brown color with a light brown, chocolate milk shake like head on top. The head has very good retention makes tons of thick light brown lacing on the glass. Its aroma has a mix of leafy hops, minerals and smoky roasted grain. The flavor has hints of coffee with cream, some smoke, sweet roasted gain, leafy hops and a light dusting of dark coco powder. It has a nice medium body with a silky smooth texture and soft carbonation. It is slick but not overly thick or cloying at all.

Rating #965, flaske fra Malta. Meget mørkebrun, næsten sort øl med standard bruge skum. Duft af sød lakrids og sukker. Meget sød smag med sød lakrids, hvidtøl og masser af metal hvilket gør den ret ulækker. Vel nok den dårligste stout jeg har smagt, men også en af de alkoholsvageste. Normal tykkelse.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2014
Aroma - there is a small amount of chocolate and a little tinge of roast Appearance - very dark brown/black body; liquid is opaque; the head is about 1" and a nice tan/brown color; lacing is a silky stocking Taste - the taste is sort of like chocolate malt and a cracker jack like caramel, mild, yet nice. A very much subdued roast, it’s nearly negligible; there is a little of that Chocolate Cow about it as well. Palate - body is medium; texture is slightly thick and a little creamy as well; the carbonation is soft, bordering on flat; the finish is kind of like a chocolate milk.
