3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 This is a wonderful beer, smooth and sweet. A nice bit of smokiness and not too strong at 3%. I might get away with having two glasses of it. Can’t imagine the Americans liking this, though.

Can, Co-op, Oxford. Grainy Cheerios® aroma, chocolate milk. Mineral sweetness, light coffee and chocolate roast. Gentle carbonation, light creamy palate. A funny stout, but very pleasant and unassuming, and an awful lot of flavor for the strength.

STILL SOME AROUND. I LIKE COFFEE SO I LIKE THIS BEER. EASY TO DRINK AND CREAMY. IT IS COMPLEX BUT THAT COMPLEXITY REMINDS ME OF SUB PRIME COLUMBIAN COFFEE. OR A FRENCH ROAST. I ALWAYS DRINK COFEE WITH EVAPORATED MILK SO THATS KINDA WHAT YOU HAVE HERE. OH WELL EEEHHH!

Deep black colour, a smokey roast malt nose, very mellow quite complex roast malt flavour. Probably the best beer in a CAN that i have had.

Nice, dark head and a black beer. The initial flavour is sweet coffee and then some burnt notes of malt and a hint of licorice. The bitterness is low and the overall impression is a bit too sweet.

Bottle. Fairly typical of a sweet stout. Opaque black with a beighe head. Flavor is of coffee and cream with a good bit of sugar.

Hints of coffee and evaporated milk sums it up not much to this beer and I didn’t know it was retired. Page 293 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 328 out of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

Canned. A dark beer with a head like milk chocolate.
Sweet, with bot coffe and milk, a beer version of a latte. Interesting, but not a beer for me!

330ml can from Sainsburys. Ah, the favoured drink of little old ladies (apart from sherry obviously). Pours completely black with a big tan head. Unsuprisingly, the mouthfeel is very much like milk, coating the mouth and giving it a lingering taste. Taste is creamy & chocolatey with a nice roast element. Goes very well with a good slice of fruit cake.

Can: Certainly looks good - black with ruby tints below a tan head. Muted powdery notes dominate the aroma initially with dry cellar, hot granite, and slight roasty and caramel points. Later some liquorice and chocolate notes emerge. In the mouth watery milk chocolate immediately comes to mind, especially with the pleasingly very low carbonation. Some sweet, slightly tart cola-like notes also appear. In fact, by the end cola was what this most reminded me of. Odd.
