3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This Milk stout is roasty, with a great body. It isn’t too chewey though. It’s too sweet, which might need more hops to balance.

Bottle. Black colour with a nice tan head. The aroma is sweet, roasted malt with some chocolate. Sweet, roasted flavour with notes of cocoa and coffee. Medium-bodied, long roasted aftertaste and quite smooth mouthfeel. Very tasty stout.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Near black with little head. Drank pretty soon after the Bete Noire and it didn’t stand up against it at all. Sweet sticky stout with a molasses note, but not in a great way. Some chocolate, but really dead, dull flavours. I really cannot comprehend the high ratings. Poor stuff.

Smells like chocolate cake batter. Pours well with a decent head. The flavor reminds me of Whoppers candy. Good mouthfeel, nice and thick. This is my favorite milk stout that I’ve found so far.
