Bottle. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste of dried grains, powdered milk and toasted chocolate malt. Light body. More like a dark lager than a stout.

Wittales (649) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Appearance was clear black with creamy diminishing tan 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas where sweet biscuity chocolate malts, hops and yeasts are subtle but earthy spice. Taste was simliar to taste with chocolate, slight fig and dates,but mostly chocolate. Palate is simple light smooth CO2 with light-medium body. A easy average length finish. To simple and thin...

ContemplateBeer (1584) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Aroma of red grape, light roastiness and chocolate. Appearance is black with mocha head. Flavor has some fruit, some chocolate but is overall very odd. Palate is creamy. Strange and unpleasant.

rondphoto (2294) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 30, 2012
Opaque black with a light brown head and light spotty lace. The taste begins like a typical malty stout, but makes a bad turn into a chalky overly sweet mess. Big flavor, not at all appealing.

This is the worst stout I’ve ever tried, and I usually enjoy this style. I think its popularity is mostly due to folks like us trying to add a rating from another obscure country. (I admit to trying a boring lager only because it was from Kenya, but it wasn’t as bad as this). 11.2 oz bottle pours an opague dark brown/black with a small tan head but good lacing. Aroma is of sour milk, malts, caramel and artificial sweetener. Texture and ABV are too thin for a stout. Not much carbonation either. It got better as it warmed up, but I won’t try this one again.

wlajwl (4062) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Malty/gritty, chocolate and earthy in aroma. The flavor is sweet/sour with a bit of funk. The maltiness is decent but the off-flavor makes it not as good as it could be.

RobertDale (3712) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 18, 2011
11.2 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is chocolate, malt, coffee and cream. Thin and too sweet.

BVery (6980) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle. Very dark/black pour with a thin brown head. Aroma is like artificial sweetener. Thin palate, taste also seems contrived - slight fruit, slight sweetness.

beernovice39 (3160) - Montana, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle pours black with a thin brown head. Scent is sugar, malt and butter. Taste is light roasty with lactose.

MadIndian (2435) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Never heard of Malta, but a new rating from a new country. Black pour with a mild sweet and roasted malt aroma. Flavor was thin, watery, some dark fruit, caramel and chocolate. Way too thin for a stout.
