Sweetness expected from a milk stout is overpowered by heavy hop bitterness. Thinner body than I would expect from a double milk stout. A bit disappointing.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black, body under a small frothy light brown head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty great, lots of sweet lactose and chocolate malt with a nice roastiness and just a minimal hint of hops. The flavor is pretty well balanced between the sweetness from the lactose and the dry roasted malt bitterness. Lots of roast and chocolate up front, but it finishes a bit chalky and burnt tasting. Tastes fairly light and doesn’t let on that it’s 7.5% ABV. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Some lingering roast and burnt chalky malt. Decent enough.

Appeance - black. No head.
Aroma - barley and malts. Not like traditional stouts. More like a regular beer
Mouth - med carb. More like a porter.
Taste - high bitter high carb. Kind of plain malts. Missing the milk stout feel and sweetness I am looking for.
Overall - not a fan

Black with a persistent foamy light khaki head. The nose has a dry roasty coffee tone with a bit of licorice and astringent cocoa. The flavor is a bit sweeter, with cocoa tones that are a bit earthy and roasty, but also with a dry bit of bready mellowness. Decent.

Black with ruby highlights and a nice light coffee head. Aroma of roast, coffee, chocolate, some biscuit. Taste roasty and full. Bitter chocolate, burnt toast. Roastiness increasing mid palate and then receding to a nice roasty and slightly burnt palate.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Nice stout but nothing special. Nice balance and sweetness but lacking in body and balance.

Ótima cerveja, me surpreendeu. A tal lactose não apresenta grande diferença, começa amarga e termina até doce demais na boca. Ótima pedida, mas o preço não compensa.

Black with a beige, four finger high head head that leaves lacing on the glass.

A great bitterness and a medium body with a small amount of carbonation. Great!
