bottle bought in Systembolaget - Stockholm.
Appearance: dark brown to black color. Medium head, beige and with quickly collapse.
Aroma: toasted malts, chocolaty milk, quaker with milk and cream.
Flavor: start with a soft toast and with creamy oats. Later, reminiscences of sweet chocolate, lactose, cream, cappuccino , vanilla, butter-cookies and sponge cake.
Palate: full body, very creamy and viscous texture. Low carbonation.
Remark: nice milk hints, sweet but this one isn’t sickly, very good texture. Advisable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355 ml bottle. From Sweden.
Very dark almost black colour with beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and some sour milk and coffee. Flavour is too much coffee for me to enjoy. Sweet and dry at the same time. Too much coffee for me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a somewhat light black with thin tan-colored head. The aroma is strange of malt and honey with hints of nutmeg. Flavor is definitely a creamy stout, almost as if it were watered down with milk. Hints of coffee at the end of each sip. Body is creamy with a fizzy carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-Pours black with no noticeable head. The aroma was roasted malts and coffee with a background of milk. Ok, I know it would be better defined as lactose. The initial taste is milk and chocolate followed by coffee with a slightly hoppy finish. The mouth feel was creamy and carbonated. Petty’s

Subtle aroma of toffee/coffee. Full flavored, a bit thin in the milk stout style. OK I guess.

Pint Glass from bottle
Light fluffy head, beige in color. Dark espresso color with a nose of chocolate milk, coffee, and hazelnut. Creamy and sweet on the tongue, with a clingy smooth mouth feel. Strong cappuccino aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had this stout tons of times. Can’t believe I haven’t rate it yet. It’s a little creamy, has some heft to it. Certainly known as their flagship, I believe, but nothing absolutely wonderful to me.

Nice sweet stout. Really dark red with a beige head. Smells roasty with some sweet chocolate. Tastes sweet but not too sweet with nice chocolate lightness. Really tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown pour into thick, creamy tan head that slowly dissipates into lingering lacings. Carbonated bubbles rise up from the bottom of the glass into a creamy malty pool that hangs around after each drink. Aroma of dark roasted malts, coffee, and sweet chocolate. Initial flavor of sweet chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Full-bodied finish of roasted malts fading into hoppy bitterness with a lingering creamy mouthfeel.
