3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a muddy dark brown with a very slight red hue. The light brown head was suprisingly small yet frothy, which dissapated quickly with only a small residue remaining allowing for a fair amount of lacing on the glass.The aroma was nice and robust with a moderatly strong scent of dark bread malts and a sweet doughy yeast with hints of milk chocolate, molasses and a strong coffee presence. It tasted lighty sweet and flavorful with molasses and chocolate notes from the onset, then ended mildly biiter-sweet with a wonderfull strong note of coffee that lingered on the palate for a nice long while. Mouthfeel was creamy in texture and overall feel with the body being medium to full. Both were balanced very well and worked quite well together. Overall an excellent stout. Blending of the flavors was without a doubt perfectly balanced, although it could have been just a tad heavier in body.

Coffee notes, not too sweet, had the nitro version, although I’m not sure what the point is.

355ml bottle nitro. A fun beer, but a bit sweet for my taste. I’m new to sweet stout anyways, but definitely a quality product.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head that is dense and has a head that retains at about 1/2 a cm. Aroma is dark stone fruit, vanilla wafer, caramel, cocoa nibs and coffee. Palate is medium full body and medium carbonation with a smooth, rich creaminess. Flavour is rich dark fruity cocoa upfront with a coffee flavour that precedes a bittersweet, creamy fruitiness which then smoothly recedes into vanilla, which lingers. Outstanding balance and medley of flavours. Superb.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasting notes for the Nitro Milk Stout: Difficult to know if the non-Nitro Milk Stout (tried alongside) if really a different beer, but there appeared to be a few nuances between then. Like the non-Nitro Milk Stout, the nose has a nicely light and beefy smokiness, like a barbecued beef steak - but this time with a bit of ground filter coffee. Mouth has a bit more mocha (to my mind), then there is a drier and less creamy/sweet end compared to the non-Nitro Milk Stout.
