Sweet lactose and chocolate aroma, the lactose overpowers the stout and chocolate flavours. I was expecting more of a spicy hit. Good, but not world class .

Pours a dark dark brown. Lovely milky brown head. Good legs. Cinder toffee and roast choc nose. Silky orgasmic mouthfeel. Spicy and sweet taste. Good stout, a pudding in itself. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pitch black with a large creamy dark brown head. Dusty, cocoa, vanilla, wood, brown sugar. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. Yeah, it’s a bit sweet and goopy and I don’t get the overall idea. It is written on the bottle but tldr. So all in all it is sweet with lots of chocolate.
