3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep brown, tan head. Bigger aroma, roasty yet fairly sweet. Flavor offered some roasted coffee bitterness along with some mild sweetness, a bit caramelly. A little lighter bodied but smooth. Enjoyable.

Bottle sample. Whenever I sample a new sweet/milk stout it’s difficult not to draw a comparison with one of my all-time favorites which is Mackeson’s. This offering really doesn’t come close. Pours opaque black with a quick disappearing tan head. Initial nose is of roasted malts and dark chocolate. Appropriately sweet taste, but a bit thin on the mouthfeel. Finished quickly with a wisp of bittersweet chocolate and dark roasted coffee beans. Not a bad sweet stout by any means, but somewhat undistinguished.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark colaesque brwon color. Without the soda-like bubbles. Fluffy off-white head that disappeared, almost completely, quick. A bit creamy nose with some chocolate. I do like this stout. Sweet chocolate milky taste with some roasted malts in there and a very small hop bitterness in the finish. Very little carbination.

Black w/ soda-like brown head (it sizzled but dissipated very quickly). Sweet, roasty chocolate aroma. Soft, creamy, lightly carbonated feel. Roasty, slightly milky, chocolate flavour w/ a hint of nuts & an underlying mineral water quality. Finish is very wet & sweet.

Ruby brown in color with a tiny head that diminishes to nothing. Roasty, milk chocolate aroma. Roasted barley flavor with hints of cocoa and a milky sweet finish, not much bitterness. Quite drinkable.

Pours a mostly opaque dark brown with a small head that is quickly dissipating. Aroma is mild--some chocolate noted, but nothing special. Thin, sweet stout with lots of chocolate. Mild bitter ending. Nothing special at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown, almost black, color with a very small head with very little lacing. Aroma is like cocco-pebbles in warm milk. Flavor is chocolate and a roasted bitterness. Some light sweetness on the back end of the taste. Finish is pleasantly crisp but notebly round. Not bad.
