Cantabrian (912) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 20, 2015
Ruby black with a gorgeous creamy head, aromas of chocolate and creme de cassis. The red currants are back on the flavour, with dark chocolates not much of coffee, and salty caramel. Medium to light bodied, it is still silky creamy on the palate. Gorgeous shit! I love it! Absofuckinglutely!

Clear near-black beer with a creamy head. Toasty malt aroma. Flavour is sweet and malty though there is a slight sourness to the fruit.

KW92 (208) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 21, 2015
WYGLĄD: Barwa brązowa, zmętnione. Piana drobna, krótka, oblepia szkło. AROMAT: To co lubię, czyli dużo mlecznej czekolady w aromacie, wyraźny kokos, słodkie kakao, delikatna kawa, piernik. SMAK: Czekolada, czekolada i jeszcze raz czekolada plus kokos. Skojarzenia z Samuel Smith’s "Organic Chocolate Stout" lub baton "Bounty". Minimalna paloność i goryczka. Alkohol świetnie ukryty. Bardzo pijalne. Udany sweet stout.

Przylus (346) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Aromat kawy i trochę czekolady deserowej. Barwa czarna z minimalnymi rubinowymi refleksami. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa, krótka. W smaku mleczna czekolada i kawa. Wodniste i pijalne. Goryczka kawowa, średnia. Niezły sweet stout, ale jak na milk stouta z bańką mleka na etykiecie (nowy wzór), to zdecydowanie za mało mleczne.

niquillis (1427) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
On cask at Euston Tap. Pours black brown with a light tan head. Thin for the style. Sweet start, some roast, pleasant enough but I was expecting much more.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2014
0.33l bottle. This one has a medium sized very rapidly fizzing away brown little head on top of a cold brown cloudy body. On the nose I get good amount of fresh grounded coffee blended with mild sweet licorice, some roasted malts, a little bit of cardboard and a nice dark sweetness. If smells quite nice, not extreme in any way but quite nice non the less. Yeah, it’s sweet. No surprise as it’s a sweet Stout. A lot thinner than I expected in the mouth. Almost a little watery and the big bubbles are about average. Some cold coffee, more sweet licorice, lactose and it’s leaving a slightly dry toasted but really milk sweet taste in my mouth. I have to admit that I’m no great fanning the genre, and this is just a tad too sweet for my liking. Still, it’s definitely worth a try. 02.08.2014
