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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Opaque dark brown w/ some garnet & little foam. Chocolate & coffee in the nose, of course, but also some what nutty, salty, and porkish(???). Thick, creamy feel. Very sweet flavour, some coffee, some chocolate, dried fruit & not a lot of bitterness.

Two years at RB. 800 beers and now 65 countries all together at one Radekfest 2003. Dark, dark brown. Minimal head 0 stout! Milky, slightly acidic aroma. Mineral, slightly watery, got interesting softness. This beer would be great if only ... got more intensity.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very dark brown. Nutty, sweet malt aroma, with light coffee. Light body. Vaguely nutty, sweetish and thin. After Jackson's praise, and armed with the knowledge of just how cool this could be to find a classic milk stout in Malta, I had this on my "most wanted list" for years. Disappointing, and a far cry from the Milk Stout I had from John Harvard's a few years back, which was a far better example of what can be done with the style.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. This beer has quite a reputution as it is mentioned by Alan Marshall in his famous beer-records.faq dating back to 1995 as the darkest beer he knew at 450 EBC. It pours very black with a brownish head, but I think nowadays there are darker beers. It is sweet and creamy and rather light bodied. The mouthfeel as well rounded and it is lightly roasty and somewhat chocoaltey. The finish is velvetty with low bitterness. A good crossing between milk chocolate and stout.
