Lawger (109) - SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with small off-white head. Scents of milk chocolate, caramel and some malts. Very reminicent of Young's Double Chocolate Stout on the nose. The palate is medium bodied, sweetish and easy drinking with a slightly roasted finish. No bitterness or booziness. It's balanced and agreeable. I could easily have a few of these at any given pub night, but it's not about to blow my socks off. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear dark amber body with a small beige head. Aroma feels like sweet dark malt and chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is sweet, dark malt, smooth chocolate with moderate bitterness. Fine body and sweet malt/chocolate aftertaste. Quite mild, not very complex but I really enjoyed it anyway.

Vignale (2061) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2014
Flaska från SB. En söt mjölkstout. Mjölksocker och chokladsås dränker de rostade smakerna, lätt beska men en aning kaffekärvhet räddar balansen något. Okej ändå, Jag har trots allt druckit en hel del värre i genren.

Franzen (321) - SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2014
Chocolate and liquorice aroma with light hints of campfire. Sweet taste, bit milky and some chocolate. Light body, the carbonation doesn’t really fit the beer. Would have been better with fuller body, smoother carbonation and a bit more rosted malts
