Flaska @ Ölrepubliken, Göteborg. Så mörkbrun att den nästan går för svart. Medelstort moccafärgat skum. Mjölkchoklad, grädde, rostat kaffe och aningen lime i doften. Mjölkchoklad, vanilj och nötighet i smaken. Mjuk munkänsla.

Meh. Bitterness/sourness overwhelms the creamy, milky, sweet qualities that should have been dominant in this beer. Sweet, yes, but too much of a burning sensation to have a nice full body. Disappointing beer.

A dark brown coloured beer with orange tints and a caramel coloured head. A very light nose, creamy and malty, nutty and a touch yeasty. Medium-dry mouthfeel. A smooth, creamy malty taste, sweet nutty flavours, caramel and vanilla spice. There is a background sourness that doesn't let the milkiness get too cloying, balancing out the finish perfectly.

Darl opaque brown color, small brown head. Cocoa, some toasted notes, milk chocolate and vegetably notes. Light to medium-bodied. Soft palate. Chocolate, some cocoa, light vegetables. Not the most exiciting milk stout.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark brown colour, thickish foam, quite high carbonation left bubbles all over the glass. Sweetish malty flavour with a hint of milky lactic flavours. Not super complex but tasty and restorative.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted and dark malts, a little lactose, some light chocolate, and some light dough and bitterness. Flavor the same with a good blend. Average texture. Not a bad milk stout.

5.5% bottle served in a pint glass. It pours a viscous oily black with a dark thick brown head. The aroma is sugary sweet with chocolate & biscuit notes. The taste is surprisingly thin bodied with bitterness, then roast & burnt notes before finishing on a slightly sour lactic lingering sweet finish with a touch of coffee. Interesting, a nice beer.

12oz bottle; thanks Adrian!
Aroma is rather one dimensional but its a good dimension. Lots of milk chocolate with some secondary dark fruit notes.
Pours dark brown but not quite black with a thin light mocha/dark tan head that quickly recedes.
Flavor is fairly sweet with a lot of lactose related residual sugars and a lighter chocolate flavor. I think the beer would be better with a more dominant chocolate character but its alright. Moderate fig, plum and light raisin notes. Light toast character with medium light bitterness and a touch of an earthy hop character.
Mouthfeel is medium light to light bodied with medium carbonation. Medium low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall an alright beer but not super enjoyable. There is a nice sweet lactose character but there isn’t much body or malt character to support it. It could be that I am used to richer, fuller stouts and this is to style but it just seems lacking. No, after reviewing the style guidelines this beer is just lacking.

Bardzo pieknie wygladajacy mleczny stout. Piana stoi mocno i jest o fioletowawym odcieniu. Fajna etykieta. Napoj ciemny, a wlasciwie czarny. W smaku mleczne akcenty zmieszane z lekka slodycza slodu.
