Leighton (11860) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle at the Semi-Final Tasting, London. Thanks to Jack! Pours clear, red-brown with a creamy, tan cap. Cheap chocolate in the nose, some toasty sugars, some bread. Light sweet flavor with mild chocolate, faint tang, dark and toasty bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light to medium sweet finish with some tangy dark malts, modest lactic tang, mild mocha. Meh.

jackl (4932) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle at the Semi-Final Tasting. Deep brown color with a small head. The nose is sweet caramel and powdered sugar, cola sweetness. The taste is very fruity - blackberry, cranberry. A bit tangy indeed. Lightly lactic, with a big runny toffee malt base. Medium body, soft carbonation. Perhaps this has a mild infection? Overall, I don’t seem to be a massive fan of the style. This was OK.

Scopey (7397) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle at Leighton’s Euro Semi-Final tasting, thanks to jackl. It pours almost black, with a medium tan head. The nose is roasted malt, charcoal, coffee, salted caramel, toast and toasted coconut. The taste is tangy dark fruit, charcoal, blackcurrant, cherry, raisin, roasted malt, cola and balsamic vinegar. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. To me this doesn’t taste like a classic milk stout, but it’s a decent beer nonetheless.

75cl bottle. Pours black with a nicely proportioned crema head. Nose of dark chocolate and cream. Taste of dark chocolate and liquorice. Palate medium bodied and textured with a creamy finish. Overall, a very nice stout.

zacgillbanks (2537) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012
Bottle from Rehills in Newcastle. A black beer with a quickly disappearing thin tan head. It has a rich chocolate, liquorice and plum notes with a sweet warming fruity finish.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle from Great Grog. Nose is big milky, cheap vanilla sauce, chocolate, some pepper, weirdly vegetal also. Sour milk!? Sweet lactose notes, some salty seaweed, liquorice, sticky bitter finish. Interesting, vegetal, very VERY odd, but not entirely unpleasant.
