3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased in Sweden from Systembolaget in Visby. Can’t believe I had to leave the continent to catch this.
Pours a dark opaque brown with a dark tan head, roughly 1 cm.
Smells of a freshly started pot of coffee in the morning, with notes of breakfast cereal, and a recently doused campfire. I’m serious.
The mouthfeel is thick and creamy with medium carbonation.
The taste is coffee, unsweetened cocoa, and a touch of burnt chocolate chip cookie. A dab of honey appears after warming a bit. The aftertaste is chalky and bitter, leaving a dry, parched tongue.
A great beer. I’d definitely have it again.

I enjoyed this beer alot. Poured dark and sily smooth with a nice creamy head. Taste was agin like silk and very refreshing for a stout. Comparable to the duck-rabbit beers but not as tasty.

Bottles at & from Microbar, Clapham. Very dark brown with a small head. Aroma like chocolate milk and the chocolate & coffee flavour you expect from a milk stout. Not complex, but a damn good bash at the style. Very smooth and nicely drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours jet black with an ample head. The aroma is malty. The flavor is your typical stout with a big boost of sweetness. It tastes of chocolate and coffee. The carbonation seems a touch high, but the body is heavy. This is a good milk stout.

Black pour with a light tan head. Malty roasted grain aroma with milky lactic acid and touch of raisins, coffee, and chocolate. Roasted almost burnt malt flavor with milk and cream. Very dry - no sweetness. A little bit thin.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12oz) shared with and courtesy of GregClow. Pours a very deep ruby-brown with an average size creamy tan head. Aroma’s roasty and milky along with light green hops and some coffee. Flavour’s roasty and lactic along with some light hops and I’m getting a bit of ’metal’ or ’bottle’. Light bitter finish. Average bodied. It’s fine, I’d drink it again but I don’t think i would buy it -- an average Stout.

Pours dark black/brown with a small brown head, as I believe a good stout should.
What this beer lacks in aroma, it makes up for everywhere else.
Perfectly balanced roasted barley and sweet, sweet malt. Little hop intervention, which surprisingly doesn’t bother me at all in this particular brew.
I love it I love it I love it. Too bad it was gift from my folk’s trip to colorado.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Bottle. Very dark, red-brown pour with a thick tan head. Big ole aromas of toffee, dark chocolate, and toast. Those flavors too, plus wood smoke and coffee with cream. Wish I’d bought more than one!
Just tried this again. I really like this beer.
