Wow, not at all over rated. The flagship of this brewery. An English style sweet stout. Both bold and dark. An ale where you can taste the barley and hints of chocolate and coffee. The first taste was like cough syrup! Then it settled in. Taste the lactose! A funny beer, unique.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a black color with a brief tan head. Sugary-sweet aroma with a roasted, coffee background. Medium-full body, taste is predominantly coffee with a touch of sweetness. Finish is a little dry with some of that coffee bitterness attached. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at brewery. Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with cocoa and coffee. Flavor is roasted malt with caramel notes, black coffee, and chocolate followed by lactose sweetness and a earthy hop finish. Had this one multiple times over the years. This brew is a true classic.

12 oz bottle recieved from friend. Poured into pint glass. Dense two finger tan head hangs around a while. Beer is very dark brown. Aroma is mostly weak and bland. Taste is medium sweet with a light bitterness. Notes of vanilla, chocolate and nuts. Medium bodied beer. Average carbonation. Overall an ok milk stout, nothing special.

ndburns (177) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2016
355ml bottle from The Perfect Pour. Pours black with a thick brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is primarily roasted malt, a little coffee. Flavor is much more coffee, some chocolate develops more slowly, mildly sweet and not really bitter at all. Very smooth but a little thin.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2016
Medium brown, nitro head. Has a massive vanilla nose and taste. Not balanced and out of style. Garbage example, nothing but fake vanilla. Not what the style is.

cwill (68) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2016
Jet black pour with minimal head and lacing. The aromas include chocolate, roasted malt and black licorice. Initially the flavors show a nice, almost burnt roasted malt and milk chocolate. Nice creamy mouth feel, a little sticky and slick especially for a 5.3% ABV beer. Smooth, dry bitter finish. Top notch regular milk stout

12oz bottle. Starts with a mild bite with a little carbonation. Immediately followed by a tootsie roll taste. Smooth on the palate with a chocolate milk finish.

gripweed57 (1385) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Translucent black color has a minimal tan head that disapates quickly. Aroma has a roasted malt and mocha nuance. Reminiscent of Cocoa Puffs cereal. Flavor follows the nose with a nod toward Oveltine and " Black Coffee In Bed". There is an underlying creamy milk chocolate character here. Easily drinkable and quite tasty. Like a Tootsie Roll in a glass.
