3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours oily black with a medium tan head. Aroma is great, milk chocolate and mild hop "pepper". Flavor is equally good, lots of chocolate, moments of coffee bitterness, a good sour lactic note, tobacco, and peppery hops at the end. Very nice, and not overdone like too many stouts these days.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle- everything I DO NOT like about a stout. Strong, bitter and acidic. It poured out dark brown to black with a hearty and long lasting head. The aroma was toasty. Had a bitter coffee flavor with none of the subtle under taste of a really good stout. It was okay, but not much more.

Bottle. Dark chocolate, coffee with milk, malty - very nice! Large brown creamy head, very long lasting, black body - overall great looking! Moderate bitter, average duration. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Nice stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very dark with a crimson hue and deep tan soapy head. The aroma has lots of milky roasted malt, bitter cocoa and vanilla. Medium fully rich body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor starts off with cream and coffee bitterness along with heavily roasted malt. The finish has a lot more bitterness than expected for something called a ’milk stout’ , but still smooth and enjoyable. A very good stout.

355 ml bottle, RBNAG07. Dark brown, almost black. Medium greyish brown head. Bold roasted chocolate aroma. Smooth texture. Licorice flavours. Surprisingly dry for a milk stout. Lacks sweetness. Nice cocao aroma and flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice beer indeed. Smooth body and nice aroma of coffee and some chocolate. One detractor might be a bit of a thin texture, but flavor makes up for that and more. A nice stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet aroma, with notes of coffee and roasted malts. Appearance is a dark brown/red, slight head. The flavor has a chocolate coffe taste, with definite notes of lactose from the milk. This milk sugar adds a slightly sour taste to the overall sweetness. Mouthfeel is a little thick, and the finish is long lasting. Overall a decent stout
