Nitro draft. Black color. Muted hop aroma. Very fine bubble, frothy head. Sweet, hoppy flavor. Relatively simple flavors for a stout. Slightly bitter finish.

Bottle->shaker. Deepest brown with small offwhite head. Sweet creamy chocolate milk beer. I have to be in the right mood for this style, but when I am, this is a great example.

Rating from 2007: Sehr dunkel im Glas, beiger Schaum. Geruch sehr schwer malzig und trocken. Im Antrunk süffig, vollmundig & cremig. Im Hauptteil kommen Espresso, dunkle Schokolade und Röstmalz hinzu, die tolle cremigkeit bleibt. Voller Körper. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, schön röstmalzig. Sehr angenehm malzig und leicht dickflüssig.
--> tolles Bier! --> 15/12/14/15

355 ml bottle from beer-shop.it served in a Teku. Pitch black, no light passing through, with a dark beige head. Rich and inviting aroma of coffee beans, milk chocolate, burnt/toasted malts, liquorice and a hint of vanilla. I can definitely feel the lactose addition and an overall sweetness in the mouth, with just a shy hint of bitterness. Pleasent aftertaste of light milk chocolate, american coffee and candy bar. Light to medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Not a beer for someone without a sweet tooth. Personally, I’ve enjoyed it a lot!

Smooth as silk. Might be a tad sweet but still excellent. Aroma is sweet cocoa. Mouthfeel is smooth, light and nitro-y.

Bottle enjoyed at the Ale House, Chelmsford. Pours a clear, very dark brown colour, with a beige coloured head. Aroma of mild roasted cocoa. Quite sweet. Medium to full bodied. Velvet texture. Easy drinking, very nice.

Bottle at Steam. Sweet and creamy, as promised. Deep flavor for a relatively low abv for this style. Enjoyable.

I initially hated this beer, but now I absolutely love it. Thick, creamy, with an unbelievably smooth mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours jet black and with a mocha colored head of creamy foam that wants to outlast the drink. There is a dark brown hue so it is not completely opaque. The head is especially creamy and leaves thick sheets of foamy slippery lace. Nose is mild but has roasted grain, light smooth chocolate and coffee plus a milky scent that is a bit sugary. Taste follows the nose. The grain is deep and almost reaches a point where it might be bitter but stops just short. The chocolate, coffee and milk are blended perfectly so that this tastes like an iced coffee drink. The mouthfeel is thin but creamy and smooth. As it warms it’s more like cereal grain. Wet coco puffs. The milk tastes just like milk.
I can’t say that I am very enthused about the style as I don’t really care for the milk taste. It’s drinks like it’s a diluted stout. It is exemplary of the style though and meets every guideline almost perfectly. The head never fell.
