5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This brew has toasty roasty coffee notes in the aroma. Also, these aforementioned attributes are coupled with slight hints of chocolate. Reddish-black color is apparent in the dark but clear liquid. The head is a off-white color that settles quickly, leaving behind plenty of lace after the first drink, and so-on. Exquisite, well-balanced heavy-sweet flavor that is hard to compete with!!! Alcohol is evident in the nose. Full-bodied brew with a creamy texture. Combine these attributes with the soft carbonation and long, pleasant finish, and you have yourself a milk stout to brag about!!! Definitely recommended!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark red to black with an off white head and good lacing.
Aroma is creamy, with roast flavours in the background and some mint, plum, honey, citrus and raisin. Taste is sweet, thick roasty cream with a touch of bitterness.
A little unbalanced - have had better milk stouts.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Servida en pinta shaker. APARIENCIA: de color marrón intenso casi negro, se observan algunos destellos marrones a contraluz; corona de espuma de color beige, de burbuja muy compacta y mediana retención.
AROMA: notas a café, chocolate, grano tostado, dulzor de lactosa.
SABOR: las notas a café y grano tostado predominan, además de notas a chocolate semiamargo, dulzor de lactosa y una ligera nota ácida tal vez proveniente de la avena, pero es muy efímera en cada trago y nada astringente o agresiva; en el retrogusto queda un amargor moderado bajo no astringente, con buena permanencia de las notas a café y tostado.
SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, ligera sensación untuosa y baja carbonatación.
RESUMEN: Una buena milk stout, nada extraordinario.

3.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark with a slightly brown head.
Smells of chocolate and coffee but you REALLY have to look for it.
Taste? This is where it wins big time! It tastes like a fine frap or even an iced milk.
Feels a tad watery in the mouth but if drank fast it has a very smooth creamy go down.
Overall? I was honestly surprised when I tasted this because it’s right there in the mix of cheap beers where I’m at and this outclasses ALL of them.

Bottle, as Milk Stout Nitro, courtesy of SinH4, many thanks! Poured hard. Looks like a Guinness while the head is turning into its final form: Stable and dense, fine bubbles. Tastes like one of these iced coffee frappées or an iced coffee milk drink. And I mean that in a good way, as the coffee, milk and cream flavours are authentic, the sweetness matches their intensity. Slightly watery but still creamy later on. Very, very well done!
