0.25 l bottle from Valetta, Malta... Clody black color, standard head and full body... Mild and light smokey stout aroma of caramel. Little bit watery... Standard stout, little bit boring, nothing special... Mild ending...

Bottle. Espresso in colour and in froth. Aroma of corn syrup, maple syrup and Karamalz. The flavour has caramel, molasses, malt and not too much of a roasted tone and little bitterness. In spite of the near cloying sweetness, it is light/thin on the palate, with a lean milk touch on the tongue. Happy to have the opportunity of trying this classic. The positive rating goes for the resilience of the product & brand. Not at all comparable to the great Mackeson Stout. This is more like one of the brown Baltic Porters. I’d be happy to have it on my pancakes. ON THAT NOTE: Today I tried the famous BUTTERBEER at Hogsmead village (Harry Potter stories) at the Islands of Adventure park in Orlando, FL. This was a great experience, with an utterly sweet (butterscotch soda) cold drink with a creamy head (made of real cream). It is a great drink, very refreshing and nutritious. Petty that we rate alcohol free beer but we cannot rate other drinks such as Braunschweiger Mumme or Butterbeer here in this site. I’d love to read the opinions.

(bottle) pours a clear deep brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of herbal hops, buttered corn, earth and light toasted malts, with a hint of dark chocolate in the finish. flavour is mostly the same, though quite meaty, with notes of grainy roasted malts in the dry finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

(Flasche) Es hat eine fast schwarze Farbe mit einem robinroten Einstich, mit einer rotbraunen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist säuerlich, Cranberry, mit einer umfassenden Süße und einer leicht muffigen Note. Der Geschmack ist wässrig, süß, Canberry und säuerlich.

Benzai (7225) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2013 Sampled @ home shared with Martinus. Opaque pitch black color, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, sweet malts, slightly some bitterness, some caramel. Could be worse.

Dosc dobre piwo o ciemnym zabarwieniu. Nieprzejrzyste i z brazowawa kremowa piana. Alromat laktozy bardzo znikomy. Piwo geste ale delikatne zarazem, Niski alkochol/

AndyW68 (1029) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Not bad. Pours nearly black with mocha head. Aroma is chocolate raisin and caramel. Taste is not bad but a disappointment.salaries to thin to be called a milk stout.

ElDesmadre (1475) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle. Sweet aroma of caramel, brown sugar, very faint metallic and roasted notes. Light sweet taste with a milky texture and a slightly milky and roasted finish. Good breakfast beer to have instead of white coffee.
