RobertDale (3330) - 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 (5969) - 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.

Bottle pours black with a thin brown head. Scent is sugar, malt and butter. Taste is light roasty with lactose.

MadIndian (2343) - 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.

Codythegreat (149) - Carrollton, Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2011
A pretty good stout. Poured a dark black with a tan head that dissapated quickly. Smelled like milk and a little bit of cocoa. Drank this out of a shaker

ReggieDunlap (3020) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Pours deep brown/black with a medium mocha head...decent lacing. Smells faintly of dark fruit...fig...hints at cocoa...smells a bit like cardboard. Flavor has hints of caramel and chocolate but is very bland. Mouthfeel is slightly watery with a roasty coffee finish.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Blanchard’s, Allston 11.2oz ($3): Pours a darkish color with a quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma of sugar and stuff like that. Taste is a little on the thin side and so is the body. Mildly sweet and buttery. Not a horrible beer, but it is its own kind of thing and is worth trying.

GT2 (8256) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 21, 2011
330mL. Pour is very strange- a deep caramel coffee pour with half and half real head and half just large, worthless bubbles. Dissipates quickly to a medley of soapy bubbles. No real head formation and no lace. Looks like opaque in the glass. Nose is strange- like sweet seedy strawberry along with volatile notes of seaweed and iodine. As it warms, characters of rotted vegetables and asparagus. Taste is watery and metallic- almost superlative metal taste like straight rusted metal and blood iron. Turns out to be colored artificially which is nasty. Very poor. Actively gross.

anders37 (16390) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours a black color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity sweetish lactic aroma with hints of chocoalte. Sweetish malty milky caramel flavor. Has a sweetish malty caramel milky finish.

Chuckaduck (628) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - APR 2, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 Pours a dark brown with a bubbly red-brown head. Aroma is some caramel notes, not much else. Taste is a touch bitter, creamy, sweet; also a bit coppery but I suspect that has more to do with the bottling/handling than the brewing. It’s not great tasting but it goes down smooth. Not one I would recommend.
