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.

Scopey (6711) - 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.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2013
75cl bottle courtesy of Erwin @ RBBSG II. BB 11/2014. Brune foncée, léger moka, fin doré au verre. Arôme est malté léger, caramel bien présent en rétro-nasal. Le houblonné reste subtile procurant qcq fines notes d’amertumes. Palais est malté caramel avec un léger chocolaté le tout dans un style bien anglais. Fine pointe d’aigreur en fin de bouche avec un pétillant que je trouve un tant trop élevé. Le tout garde un profil terreux avec un grillé modéré et une pointe de levure en fin de bouche.

jackl (4566) - 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.
