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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2012
In bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a fair, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, treacle, coffee and a little sweet and vegetal. An odd lactic flavour with cabbage, grassy hops, alcohol and yeast. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Strangely alluring with lingering alcohol and yeast.

jaghana (4380) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 23, 2011
Bouteille @mondial de la bière. Une bière foncée avec une mousse moyenne et blanche. Le nez est dans la gamme des malt torréfié mais avec une étrange note vinaigrée !! L’aroma est dans les malt torréfiés, café et caramel, le corps est correct, facilement buvable mais toujours cette note vinaigrée.

leaparsons (8641) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2011
Cask, Peterborough Fest 11. Near black with a beige foam. Aromas earthy, rich roast coffee with liquorice and soy. Caramel with some chocolate. Smells strangely of rock pools. Flavours are sweet coffee with caramel and soy. Bitter grapefruit with earthy notes. Liquorice with raisins and dark chocolate bitterness. A really good stout.

Pinball (11049) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2010
pitch dark, smooth soft large light brown head. I didn’t really pour it in any special way, but it looks perfectly fantastic. sweet malty, sweet caramelly, lacto, roasted notes. nice mildish roasted sweet aroma. flavor is sweet malty , faint mild caramel,lots of roasted stuff that goes more hard roasted and charchoal like in the aftertaste, licorice. super!. The flavor is deep and full, palate is soft. This stout is really good, even though the abv is not way high.

33 cl bottle thanks to RobertGBG!
Sampled on December 17, 2010
BB date Apr 2012.
This bottle marked 6.6% ABV
Clear deep ruby red color, medium lasting brown head. Sweet, chocolate, salty, licorice, alcohol scent. Smoke, roasted, alcohol taste. Coffee aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, medium high dry bitterness.
When blind tasting our thoughts never touched on it being a milk stout, we were rather surprised to hear that classification.
