Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2006
Bottled. An opaque brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of over ripe fruit and prunes, while the flavor is sweet malty with ntoes of over ripe fruits, dusty hops, and a bit of chocolate, leading to a dry end. But the body is thin.

(Bottle 28 cl) Pours completely opaque black with a light brown head. Weird synthetic aroma. Very light body with a soft mouthfeel. Lightly roasted notes with some chocolate. No bitterness whatsoever. 291206

This black liquid had some garnet highlights after I poured it form the bottle. The quickly dissapating head had a slight dark orange tint and clung to the glass. The aroma was roasted with chocolate and some burnt peanuts. The taste has some light notes of chocolate and nasty spoiling milk. There is a strange cellar and moss dankness that is not pleasurable. Lacto beers are not my thing.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Bottle says "Lacto Stout with Caramel Color added." Hmmm. Pours opaque blackish brown with a fading but lacy tan head. The aroma is pretty faint, but there is some chocolate and horse blanket. Medium body and light carbonation. Lightly sweet taste, not much bigger than the aroma, with some roasty malt and chocolate. Just a hint of coffee in the finish.

Tmoney99 (11554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Bottle from River’s Bend. Pours a dark black with large brown head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma was sweet chocolate milk. Medium body with a smooth texture. Flavor medium sweet and the finish was medium malty sweet . Finish was smooth and light.

jazz88 (2583) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Bottle. Black color with a thick foamy brown head. A musty lager-like aroma. In a blind tasting I might not know this was a stout. Semi-sweet, grainy, dusty, and with only a light touch of chocolate and caramel.

tomciccateri (1027) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 23, 2006
The light brown 330 ml bottle was labeled 3.8% alcohol. It poured an opaque black with a moderate tan head. Absolutely no aroma but a medium body. Full mouthfeel. Rich, dark malt flavors mellowed by the lactose.

I would take this over any of the macro stouts, for sure. Pretty decent for such a low abv. Appearance is the best part though. Black as hell with a small brown head that quickly dissipates. Slightly sweet aroma, with faint roastiness, and lactose. taste is rather unimpressive, just there, dark malts, slightly sweet aftertaste. I will agree on a mineral water aspect as well. Lactose is seen in a pretty decent body with a good strong carnbonation. Feels nice, looks nice, just not much on the flavor side of things. But a beer from Malta, thats nice.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2006
This is a rather uneventful beer, but I like the way it looks, a black body with a tall light brown head. The aroma is woody with some dark caramel. The body is thin and slightly chalky. It tastes of a smokey wood and stale caramel with a slight mineral water flavor building up in the finish. My initial feeling is that Malta imports a lot of beer.

Black color with no head. Woody aroma with some powdered milk. Taste is burnt and spoiled malt. No sweetness. Blah.
