3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2008 2008-06-11. Very dark brown body with a small quick brown head. (3+) Sweetish milky lactic tang. Similar notes in the flavour, lightly lactic tang throughout, sweet malty base. (6+) Average palate. Meh, not for me. 6/3/6+/3/13 - 3.1 Bottle shared by GregClow
<P>Beer #800 pour moi! Bottle. Dark brown body with a moderate tan head. Nice roasty aroma with a malty slightly roasted flavour but a thin bodied brew. Pleasant but a bit disappointing, had the air of a bottle that may have been opened a bit too long at the festival though, and this deserving of second chance. Mondial 3T (Capflu). 6/3/6/2/15 - 3.2

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2004 Dark brown body, light brown head. Chocolate aroma, very sweet, oily and with mild spice approaching cinnamon and vanilla beans. Slightly lactic tart palate, chocolatey. Poor flavors overall. Oily mouthfeel, yet watery and thin. Nothing too interesting to me in here.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
