Nice stout, but not what I expect of a milk stout. Quite bitter and hoppy. Full bodied, hints of chocolate and fruit. On tap in BeerTemple (Amsterdam).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours a cremy, two-finger light beige head leaving lacings. Black body. Roasted, almost burnt aroma with coffee and milk chocolate. Quite sweet flavor, with roasted malts, burnt notes and coffee. Lots of milk chocolate.Some fruityness too. Maybe a bit low on bitterness. Full to medium body, very smooth and soft. Lasting roasted, chocolatey finish. Sure pleasant and tasteful, easy drinkable and well worth a revisit. 130504

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home from Brewdog online
Pours dark mahogany-black with towering fluffy nicotine yellow-brown head that collapses to a more manageable size after a few moments. Quite a lot of umami and roast barley notes on the nose. Surprisingly soft in the mouth, full bodied as one would expect from a milk stout, but without the immediate lactose sweetness normally perceived. this instead bubbles along in the background behind sweet chocolate, burnt raisins and fruity coffee notes. V easy drinking with nary a hint of the alcohol within. There’s a long finish, but its fairly sweet and leaves me hankering for something drier. An enjoyable interpretation but i prefer Bristol beer factory milk over this any day.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black with a slightly brown creamy-looking head. Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, roasty, licorice, bready. Taste: Very aggressive in comparison. A lot of licorice up front, leading into a dry coffee finish. Dark chocolate, rye and roasted malt. The palate is creamy, ending in a dry roasty finish. This beer took me by surprise. Smooth palate as you would expect from the style, but the actual taste is much more aggressive. Pretty sessionable, especially for a Mikkeller beer. I might try this again.
