Ungstrup (34715) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2006
A pitch black beer with a slight brown shine, telling that it is hazy, and with a thin brown head on top. The flavor is very lightly sweet, while the flavor is sweet with a roasted character, and a slightly dry end. The body is thin. I think this should be listed as a milk stout rather than a sweet stout. Thanks KP.

madmitch76 (22561) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
3rd December 2008. Opaque black beer - no real head. More of a porter methinks. Thin palate and tangy with a definite sweet note from the lactose. No dryness or bitterness. This light porter goes down well.

Bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. Black beer lasting thick tan head. Very lacto on the aroma. Some medium sweet stout flavour in the mouth. Not much on the finish. Very lacto and not really my thing, but ok.
