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.

Perfect hint of chocolate with a clean finish. No trace of bitterness. Among the best milk stouts I’ve ever tried.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown, black in the glass with a thin tan head, very fine lacing, moderate retention. Aromas of chocolate, espresso, caramel, grass, biscuit. Full body, smooth and creamy. Medium sweet, the barest hint of citrus, mild bitter finish, like semi-sweet chocolate. A surprisingly strong milk chocolate flavor that doesn’t overwhelm, not at all cloying.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a long lasting creamy, creamy head. Smell is very mild chocolate malt, and milky. Taste is milky and chocolaty with lactose sweetness and a very faint bitterness. Leaning sweet as you’d expect and it’s a touch sweeter than I’d like. Very creamy and chocolaty. Somehow a slightly thin yet creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer a great example of the style. I could maybe even see the wife liking this?
