Pours an opaque black with tan head one finger that quickly dissipates. leaving small to moderate lacing. Aroma of strong caramel, roasted malt. Hint of herbal hops. Very sweet. Very thin with minimum to moderate carbonation Long sweet finish. This is disappointing, I hate to say.

wombat23 (766) - Texas, USA - APR 26, 2016
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black, with an inconsistent beige head. Subdued aroma of dark malts, some dark fruits, and vinous notes. Taste is more malty, with less dark fruits than aroma would indicate, faint chocolate, and lactose. Some oxidation present; might be a bit stale. Not good.

darbeer75 (562) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2016
Aroma: strong boozy notes, such as sherry(?) plus a lot of malt; Appearance: pitch black with thin, tan head that dissipates quickly; Taste: very flat (definitely could be the age of the bottle) with strong, sweet flavor; Palate; long, sickeningly sweet finish. Would not buy again.

Cristobal37 (816) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 14, 2016
Faint chocolate milk aroma from the bottle. Nice dark stout with dissipating tan head. Pretty light on flavor, but body is milky. Mildly sweet with a similar rooty spiciness similar to Guinness Extra Stout. Not altogether bad, but not a great stout.

kapusil (1204) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 7, 2016
0.25l bottle, thanks to Cristobal37. Black body, thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa and floral hops. Taste of caramel, toast, sour cherry and cocoa. The finish is not so long lasting, the body is weak, and it’s not that sweet for a milk stout, but still a nice one.

TorbenJensen (1464) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2015
The foam is nougat colored and creamy. The aroma is gentle malty with weak mocha tones. The taste is a little time to develop in the mouth, but the wait is worth it. Weak mocha flavor blends bold with roasted malt and the mouth feeling is creamy. The finish is very little hoppy, but is instead delicate mocha-like with a little touch of English licorice. 3.8 percent for a stout does not sound like much, and it is not, but its flavors are very rich anyway.
