3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a deep brown with a small tan head that laces the glass. Aroma of roasted and toasted malts, chocolate, and lactose. Flavor is a great balance of roasty and sweet- the lactose is definitely present, along with nuts, brown sugar, caramel, and roast. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, roasty mouthfeel. Very nice milk stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a two finger frothy brown head that had good retention and left some nice lacing. The nose is a perfect balance of lactose and roasted malt with some great milk chocolate notes. The flavor is pretty spot on for the style as far as my tastes go. Lightly sweet with a nice lactose sugar sweetness up front fading to a sweet milk chocolate laced finish. Some light roastiness, but drowned out by the sweetness mostly. Medium bodied and a bit clingy, but very smooth with perfect soft gentle carbonation. Very nice Sweet Stout, were it not for the price I think Iíd drink this fairly frequently.

Botella de 33 cl en casa octubre de 2013. Color negro con espuma persistente. Aromas tostados, cafť y chocolate no muy intensos, algo diluidos por la lactosa. Cuerpo ligero - medio. Sabor bastante suave notŠndose lactosa dulce. Buena para repetir sin problema y como curiosidad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Very dark brown, near black color. Thin bubbly khaki head. Good ropes and bits of lace. Nice darker chocolate, some coffee, light dark fruit, lactose sugar. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, kind of a chewier texture. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light bitter. Decent milk stout, but a bit too sweet for me, like a lot of them can be. More hoppy and bitter than typical, though.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black with a large, lasting tan head.
Nose shows cocoa, milk chocolate, hazelnut pralines and roasted barley.
Very sweet flavours, cloyingly sweet in fact. Some roasted malt behind the sweetness but very weak.
Needs higher carbonation, body feels watery too.
Too much lactose by far.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half tan head that sticks around for a while. Thereís also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, and some coffee. The taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís also the addition of some vanilla. Itís a good roasty and sweet tasting beer. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick, creamy and easy to drink. Itís also well carbonated. I think itís a good brew overall, Iíd like to try this one again at some point. $5.99 a bottle.
