12 oz. bottle picked up locally and consumed at home. Pours dark brown to black with a medium sized beige head that disappears quickly. The aroma had roasted malt, some sweetness, cream, a splash of cocoa and coffee, with some metallic character. The flavor is much of the same, light roast, light cocoa, light coffee, some creamy sweetness with metallic character throughout. Thin and watery. Pass.

Bottle from a Sliema supermarket. Poured a clear dark brown with a broken light tan head. The aroma is burnt roasted malt, liqourice. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a light watery malt liqourice bitter, very light caramel palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. Not what I expected at all. A "sweet milk stout"? It was way too light, way too bitter and lacked flavour. The lingering bitter aftertaste was not all that pleasant either.

Scopey (12670) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from the Supermarket in Sliema, Malta. It pours near black with a decent tan head. The nose is roasty, milk chocolate, coffee and chewy caramel. The taste is smooth, roasted malt, coffee grounds, toast, very light lactose, mild bitterness and a touch of acidity with a dry finish. Light+ body and moderate carbonation. Not a whole lot of depth to it, but the balance works pretty well.

Well-known old-fashioned milk stout with milk sugar added. Yellow beige, dense foam, colour near black. Gentle aroma of milk powder, chocolate, cream, coffee beans, roasted grains, raisins, caramel. Sweetish taste with very creamy, not to say ’milky’ mouthfeel, caramel smoothness, soft finish with only very light roasted bitterness, as is custom for a sweet stout. I know not everyone likes this waning style, but this is a good example of it.

Svart med tykt kaffelatte skum. Karamell, malt og brunt sukker. Mest søte nyanser av karamell og kandissukker i smaken, med en liten anelse kaffebitter avslutning

Flaske delt med Flemming. Flot sort øl med gult skum, der forsvinder relativt hurtigt. Dufter af ristet malt, men lidt for meget af jordagtig gær. Smagen er umiddelbart sød, men bliver hurtigt lidt vammel og bitter.

Bamsen78 (5057) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable tan head. Clear but weak aroma of coffee, malt and grain, with subtle touches of yeast. Sweetish flavour of malt and yeast, with touches of coffee and milky notes. Faint, bitter notes of hops. Rather rough and dusty aftertaste, with sourish, milky hints. My first Maltese stout. Better than expected but nothing special as such.

The body has a nice dark chocolaty brown color with a light brown, chocolate milk shake like head on top. The head has very good retention makes tons of thick light brown lacing on the glass. Its aroma has a mix of leafy hops, minerals and smoky roasted grain. The flavor has hints of coffee with cream, some smoke, sweet roasted gain, leafy hops and a light dusting of dark coco powder. It has a nice medium body with a silky smooth texture and soft carbonation. It is slick but not overly thick or cloying at all.

Rating #965, flaske fra Malta. Meget mørkebrun, næsten sort øl med standard bruge skum. Duft af sød lakrids og sukker. Meget sød smag med sød lakrids, hvidtøl og masser af metal hvilket gør den ret ulækker. Vel nok den dårligste stout jeg har smagt, men også en af de alkoholsvageste. Normal tykkelse.
