3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick dark beige head, leaving lace over black beer with ruby highlights. Sweet liquorice nose, jap , bakery smell and dark malts. Lightly smokey flavour, cigarette ash, underlying sweet & dark malts + lactose sweetness. Sticky sweet aftertaste, light bodied. Not a bad milk stout - for the amateurs. Is this really brewed in Colorado??? It even has Dutch on the EU label.

Draught @ Taco Mac. Good milk stout but I like Mackeson xxx better. Nice flavors of sweet and bitter but not the best I have had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a medium/small head. Aromas are sweet and have notes of roasted malt, cream, vanilla, etc. Flavor is heavily sweet and pleasant, but lacks any interesting plot development. A bit of a brown sugar and sweet chocolate is pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very smooth with almost imperceptible hops flavoring. As a black coffee lover this is a great beer. Creamy with very little carbonation makes drinking them too easy – the 5.3% catches up quickly. A step-down from Mackeson in intensity but an awesome beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black/dark brown with reddish reflections. Small off-white head. Good lacing. Sweet aroma of chocolate, nuts coffee and milk. Lively palate. Quite watery i.e. not very stouty. Not a lot of aftertaste; the little there is is sweet. Flavor of chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, filmjölk (Swedish equivalent to butter milk). Actually , this is probably what a “coffee-with-milk-drinker” would like. I think this beer would make an excellent accompaniment to some chocolaty desert.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a thick black with a large foamy tan head which dissipates rather quickly, leaving plenty of lacing. Aroma is strongly chocolate, with some coffee and dark roasts. Taste is rich chocolate with a little coffee. The taste is not bitter or harsh like an Impy but flat and smooth, like an alcoholic nesquick. A sessionable stout.
