WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
Small bottle. One of those beers I’d had a number of times before joining RB and forgotten about... oh why did I have to open up old wounds? This is like milk, coke, and stout mixed together. Doesn’t deserve a real review from me, a chocolately metallic alcopop. Blech. Thank god it’s "unique".

Scipio (720) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Pours black with a lingering, medium, dark tan head. Aroma is a nice combination of chocolate, vanilla, licorice, and some light coffee. Of these, the the chocolate seems to stand out most. The taste is sweet with lots of rich chocolate. It has vanilla undertones, sugar, and hints of coffee. It seems that the sweetness grows more potent the more that you drink this. Its has a light to medium body. Mild carbonation, and with a texture that I would describe as somewhat rough. I think this is pretty good if you have one. But altogether its to sweet to have more than that.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12oz bottle served in a pint glass Bottled June 2013 A - Pours almost opaque with 1.5 fingers of mocha head. Tightly weaves lacing left on the upper sides of the glass. S - Fresh chocolate grains, earthy coffe grinds, raw sugar, some grassiness, sweet cola. T - Black malts, roasted cocoa, rummy vanilla, lactose, sweet fruit, extra sweet cola, star anise, takes a turn at the end towards more of a rosted bitterness. M - Light to medium bodied, slick feel, low carbonation. Very sweet and malty, has some light roasty bitterness on the finish. Not bad. Wouldn’t want more than 2 of these in a sitting.

MrHangover (2766) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of worldbeerstaste. Pours a blackish beer with a big, off white head on top. Aroma is mostly coffee, butterscotch, caramel and some lactose. Flavor is medium sweet, milk and cookies and has a short, medium sweet finish. Decent for a sweet stout, but overall not very impressive.

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Deep brown almost black with a lacy lasting tan frothy head. Smells of chocolate, fudge, brown sugar, with a bit of liquorish. Sort of like a malt drink with added complexity. Medium to thin light body. Tastes of sweet toffee, chocolate and brown sugar
