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.

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.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2003
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.

Oakes (13271) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2003
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.

JCW (1276) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2003
Dark in color, not very carbonated(may have been lost in flight). A mix of coffee type favor with milk mouthfeel. Good Porter. Thanks omhper for this one.
