Bottle. Pours a dark brown opaque body with a thin dark tan head. Funky malty, musty aroma with some vinegar and vegetable notes. Slightly bitter, not really a true sweet stout flavor. Nutty, thin bubby mouthfeel. This actually does have a milk choclate finish. Decent beer.

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.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle. Pours basically jet black with a thin, tan head. Aroma of small amount of roasted malts and a little caramel. Flavor is a trace amount of malts, metallic notes and a little bitterness. On the watery side. Not bad, but so very ordinary.

hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2008
Nearly black with a tan head that has a tinge of red. Light, sweet aroma that has notes of chocolate and milk. Somewhat weak palate. Smooth and sweet all the way through. No bitterness at all. Easy to drink, but nothing special.

Poměrně pitelný stout, skoro až začínám uvažovat o nějaké dovolené na Maltě :)

Pours an almost pitch black color, with a quickly disappearing, fluffy brown head. Sweet aroma, some chocolate and caramel notes, but with a funkiness... Thin, metallic body is met with a slightly roasted, sweet malt character. Great, lingering bitterness.

Hanuta06 (393) - Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: light apple, wood, grape. Appearance: very small, rocky, light brown initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Dark-brown body. Taste: lightly sweet, clove, vanilla, apple initial flavor and lightly sweet, chocolate finish with short duration. Palate: light body, thin, watery texture and flat carbonation. Overall: below average. The aroma was interesting, but the taste was strange and the palate was terrible-really watery, thin and flat.

Butelka na Malcie 2005r? Kolor czarny intensywny , piana średnia jasnobrązowa. Aromat palonych słodów i czekolady, smak taki sam. Bardzo łagodne, kremowe piwo. Dobre.

Hoser (370) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2007
Sweet and very full bodied for the ABV and a good crossing between milk chocolate and stout. Page 164 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 193 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.
