4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer is dark brown but looks black in the glass. Aroma is predominantly chocolate with just a touch of roasted malts. The taste is sweet and chocolatey. I get a hint of coffee in the aftertaste. Medium body. I love milk stouts, and this one is outstanding.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown with minimal head. Slightly sweet palate with alcohol burn to roof of mouth. Good balance and full body. Probably too sweet and cloying to drink more than one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Clear, darkest brown. No head. Sweet milk chocolate. Milk. Light nuttiness. Taste is refined sugar sweet. And that’s about it, really. Given the ABV, this is a bit thin, and a bit bland.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is one of the best milk stouts I've ever tried. It is smooth as silk from beginning to end. It has a balance that ties together the rich chocolate malts and the creaminess of the milk sugars. It reminds me of a chocolate milk made with super dark chocolate.
