Pours a clear, reddish dark brown with a 2 finger, soapy tan head. Aroma is lots of caramel, apple, an odd acidity, white grape juice and light nutty, toasty and roasty notes. Flavor is caramel apple up front, roasted nuts, cereal grain, grapey-fruity notes and an odd, light acidity. Light, creamy to oily body with a light, blanketing and soft carbonation. Not bad overall, definitely an odd one, as much like a bitter with lactose as a stout.

Grumbo (729) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle brought back from Malta by Cecile. Pours a deep dark brown with a good sized tan colour head, dimishing to little more than a ring around the edge of the glass. Aroma of sweet malt, prune and raisins. Heavily sweet, with a light sourness. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

soolash (155) - POLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Na to piwo trafiłem w dwóch wersjach (obok siebie na półce, żeby było śmieszniej): taka sama butelka 0,25 l, ten sam skład, drobna różnica w etykiecie, ale zupełnie inne kapsle (jeden firmowy, drugi golas. Opisuje wersje z firmowym kapslem, bo była o wiele lepsza. Nie wiem z czym wiąże się różnica. Aromat: z butelki czuć nawet suszoną śliwkę i słody palone. Piana beżowa, o średniej wielkości bąbelkach, szybko znikająca. Barwa: ciemna, bardzo głęboki rubin. Smak: laktoza niewyczuwalna. Trochę nut karmelowych. Odczucie: tekstura niska, nasycenie niskie.

radzik5555 (515) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Butelka 0.25L
Wygląd: Ciemnobrunatne, rubinowe, klarowne. Piany prawie nie ma wcale.
Aromat: Mało intensywny, lekko czerwone wino, porto, śliwka suszona, karmel, miodowy, słodowy, lekko metaliczne nuty,
Smak: Rozwodniona kawa zbożowa i pustka po za tym.
Odczucie: Wodniste, faktura wodnisto/metaliczna, wysycenie niskie.
Całość: Kiepskie w smaku, delikatny ale dość ciekawy aromat.

12 oz. bottle picked up locally and consumed at home. Pours dark brown to black with a medium sized beige head that disappears quickly. The aroma had roasted malt, some sweetness, cream, a splash of cocoa and coffee, with some metallic character. The flavor is much of the same, light roast, light cocoa, light coffee, some creamy sweetness with metallic character throughout. Thin and watery. Pass.

jmgreenuk (5320) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle from a Sliema supermarket. Poured a clear dark brown with a broken light tan head. The aroma is burnt roasted malt, liqourice. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a light watery malt liqourice bitter, very light caramel palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. Not what I expected at all. A "sweet milk stout"? It was way too light, way too bitter and lacked flavour. The lingering bitter aftertaste was not all that pleasant either.

Scopey (8089) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from the Supermarket in Sliema, Malta. It pours near black with a decent tan head. The nose is roasty, milk chocolate, coffee and chewy caramel. The taste is smooth, roasted malt, coffee grounds, toast, very light lactose, mild bitterness and a touch of acidity with a dry finish. Light+ body and moderate carbonation. Not a whole lot of depth to it, but the balance works pretty well.

Alengrin (2815) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Well-known old-fashioned milk stout with milk sugar added. Yellow beige, dense foam, colour near black. Gentle aroma of milk powder, chocolate, cream, coffee beans, roasted grains, raisins, caramel. Sweetish taste with very creamy, not to say ’milky’ mouthfeel, caramel smoothness, soft finish with only very light roasted bitterness, as is custom for a sweet stout. I know not everyone likes this waning style, but this is a good example of it.

Vighals (1654) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Svart med tykt kaffelatte skum. Karamell, malt og brunt sukker. Mest søte nyanser av karamell og kandissukker i smaken, med en liten anelse kaffebitter avslutning

BrianWillum (216) - København S., DENMARK - JUL 17, 2014
Flaske delt med Flemming. Flot sort øl med gult skum, der forsvinder relativt hurtigt. Dufter af ristet malt, men lidt for meget af jordagtig gær. Smagen er umiddelbart sød, men bliver hurtigt lidt vammel og bitter.
