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

harrisoni (15665) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle at GBBF 2006. Black with thin dark beige head. Odd aroma with some sourness, some milkyness, some sweetness, odd dark malts. Some choc. Odd, but quite nice.

leaparsons (8984) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2006
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.

Sten (710) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2006
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.

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.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2003
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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2003
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.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2003
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.

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.
