3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home, from Eebria, 03/05/14.
Black with a good sized tan covering that dissipates but retains.
Nose is roast malt, earthy cocoa, light spice, dark toffee fudge.
Taste is a little thinner, less cocoa, liqourice stick, light tobacco and leather tones, faint roast.
Light to medium bodied, a little watery and thin, light dryness in the close.
Ok - but nothing special, looks and smells good but falls away on the flavour and feel.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
BB 02/15. Pours a dark brown ruby black with a light tan head. Nice milky choc, light coffee, woody aroma, slightly grassy too. Light body, thin, mild carbonation. Watery. And the milky chocolate is of the candy chemical variety... Not much else beyond that - a hint of coffee, some bits and pieces, lemon, toast, but its so watery. Poor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Poured a dark mahogany with a glass hugging off white head. The aroma is weak malt with a little sweet creamy milk. The flavour is medium bitter with a slightly watery spicy pepper milky palate. A super milk stout and one I could easily drink all night long.
