2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz brown bottle.
It pours a deep blackish brown with a thick and creamy tan head that recedes with a bit of nice lacing.
The smell is interesting, a bit of permanent marker, chocolate, and sugar.
The flavor is light and sweet, there is a lot of metallic flavor, mostly milky milk chocolate, it is a bit buttery.
It is okay, easy to pound and get over with.

Bottle. Smoked cheddar cheese aroma. Dark black-brown color with small film of a head. Cream cheese/unsweetened yogurt and toasted bread flavor. Fairly light body. An interesting unique beer for number 1500.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted from a 11.2 oz bottle purchased in Denver, Colorado. Pours a deep black body with a medium brown/black head that dissipates pretty quickly. Incredibly wine-like and alcoholic in the head (even though it’s rated at around 4% ABV). This is probably from the lactose. Creamy and milky mouthfeel. Dark malty flavor like a stout with a definitive milk-like character (again probably from the lactose). Quite thin and smooth.

250 ml bottle. From Malta. HHOK blind tasting. Thanks Jukka.
Black colour with small to average tan head. Lots of chocolate, some sour lactose and hints of fruits in aroma. Mild hops, burned malt and lactose sourness in flavour. Watery and thin.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Winking Lizard in Cleveland. Black body, small foamy brown head. Strange muddle aroma, lactose, sweet malt. Sweet flavour of malt, lactose, and obvious caramel. Average palate seems to have added body from the lactose. Meh, not awful but I would not rush to have a second one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black with a beige head. Aromas are sweet coffee with lactose. Also has mollasses and cream. Has earthy sweet roast root vegetable notes. Flavours are sweet and sugary roast malts with chocolate and powdered milk. Has some berry fruit with sweet, sticky mollasses. Quite dry on the finish. Extremely tasty for its strength.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
