3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. GBBF. A black coloured beer with a slightly frothy coffee head. The aroma is like red candy licquorice: very sweet and attempting to be grown up. The taste is very sweet and lactic. More red licquorice. Although the beer is a bit dumbed down and over sweet, it is quite satisfying and nice enough to drink

Bottle. Black with a beige head. Aromas are sweet coffee with lactose. Also has mollasses and cream. Has earthy sweet roast root vegetable notes. Flavours are sweet and sugary roast malts with chocolate and powdered milk. Has some berry fruit with sweet, sticky mollasses. Quite dry on the finish. Extremely tasty for its strength.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A black coloured beer with a pale brown head. A sweet roasted aroma. A sweet taste with a very small sence of bitterness. How can a beer with such a bad aroma taste so good. (Bottle 28.5cl 3.8 alcohol% in my version and a half year past its expiry date)

Thanks Jacky and Nicole for bringing me this nice beer from Malta. Black-brown color with brown fluffy head. Good aroma’s of burned coffee, nuts, wood and lactose. taste is smooth and on the sweet side. It has hits of black chacolate, strong coffee with sugar and milk, and some roasted bitterness in the end.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light looking stout with a fluffy head. The aroma is slightly milky but quitie alcoholic, and the flavour is lightly hopped and milky. Overall a reasonable milk stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light roasted, light raisin aroma. Black, small brown head, good lace. Bit too sweet which makes me think of cola but it's on the edge. Light body, chocolat, light bitter roasted flavor. Little dryish in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black in colour, with an orange/brown coloured lasting head. Aroma is lightly raisiny, lightly roasty, failry light in general. Palate is sweetish, lightly roasty, lightly raisiny, slightly roasty bitterness, nice soft mouthfeel, shies away from being sweet and cloying like Mackeson Stout for example. I'm glad i got to try this classic milk stout, even if it wasn't anything special, pretty decent though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark reddish brown color. Milky in the nose, lightly roasty, sweet malt and hints of light chocolate. Body is oily with a hint of smoke. Hints of chocolate follow with a pleasant roastiness and just a touch of hops at the end. Not bad, light and tastey.
