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.

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?

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nose of chocolate and lactose combined with hints of roasted malt and coffee. A thick black pour with a tan ring and minimal lacing. The palate is moderately sweet. Chocolate, bitter coffee, cola, and lactose with a sugary chocolate finish and aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, while an enjoyable example of a milk stout, it was sweeter than I was expecting and not as thick full mouthfeel as I was anticipating. wouldn’t want to drink more than one at a time.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours with a dark nearly black body that supports a thin mocha colored head of foam. The modest aroma offers up malt sweetness, bits of smooth chocolate and echoes of sweet dark fruity esters. The taste starts with some sweetness and then it quickly picks up a restrained mild chocolate bar note before a mix of wafer thin layers of dark roasted malts and sweet dark fruity esters join in and help take this to the finish. Smooth tasting brew.
