UPDATED: DEC 8, 2008 Pint &#64; Dos Copas. Draft. This was a pleasant surprise. Pour of black with not much head. Loved the roasted chocolately aroma. Syrupy and full-bodied texture. Excellent sweet, roasted taste. Not much bitterness but delicious anyhow.

Dark brown with a thin tan head. Strong chocolate aroma and flavor with a hint of coffee. Malty and mellow, yet flavorful and very smooth. Excellent brew.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is of coffee and malts. Nothing very overpowering in the aroma other than the obvious that stands out. The taste is of malts and coffee. Unfornately, instead of creamy, this beer comes off as overly watery. Lingering effect of drinking too much milk. Nothing special about this beer. Dissapointing.

Enjoyed this on tap at The B Line in Tucson. Pours a thick black color with a trim white head of foam. Smells of milk chocolate and tastes predominantly of cream. Very balanced and heavy bodied. Highly drinkable.

Bottle. The aroma is nothing special, malty like your traditional stout. The flavour is sweet with a (obviously) milky aftertaste. Surprisingly balanced.

Very good! I didn’t know what to expect, but I really liked it. When the barkeeper said it had a cocoa aftertaste, I was a bit scared but it turned out well. Very balanced, nice aroma, sweet roasted taste. Very dark colour. Nice one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A good example of a style that often disappoints. This has a restrained sweetness and good balance. It may well be the best milk stout I’ve had, but that’s not saying much. It’s as black as a Fresian’s colon with a tall head that fizzled quickly. Quite a "dry" aroma for a sweet stout. Milo choc-milk dominates, with cocoa powder and licorice. The milk sugar is prominent but not overpowering. Creamy, lactic body. Sweet, milky flavours. Cocoa again, soft dark malts and a gentle bitterness to the finish. It’s too sweet to be sessionable but a bottle proved satisfying drinking. This brewer continues to impress. (355ml bottle from IBS, Perth. BB 27/8/08)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a black colour with a light-brown creamy head that settled down slowly in the glass. It has a pleasant aroma that smells of roasted malts, milk chocolate and hints of caramel. The flavour is a bit thin and watery and tastes of milk chocolate, thin/weak coffee and malts. It has a short aftertaste. It’s a nice starter-stout, but people that like stouts will find this a bit lacking.

Deep brown with a beige head. Roasted malts, milk chocolate, caramel/molasses. Extremely smooth body. Roasted malts, malty, milk, some cocoa, light coffee, and toffee. Really easy to drink, and very tasty. Quality.
