3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with minimal brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is nice like sweet roasted milk chocolate. Taste is mediocre to me. Tastes like burned chocolate and coffee. Carbonation seems appropriate. I won’t buy this again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve been wanting to try this beer for a long time and I’m not disappointed. There was almost no head and the remaining lace dissipated quickly. This stout is obviously black. The aroma is very complex and hard for me (newbie rater) to decipher. There was definitely a caramel aroma but something else present possibly smoked cedar? The taste was very pleasing with a mildly sweet flavor balanced superbly by the dark roasted grains. Medium-light body, creamy texture, and a fantastic chocolate caramel finish. I will definitely buy this beer again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from De Molen. Poured a clear dark brown with a round light tan head. The aroma is malt and creamy caramel. The flavour is medium bitter. Medium bodied, low carbonation and a creamy texture. Lots of toffee fudge on the slightly watery palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: August 2, ’12
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker glass.
A: Roasted malt with hints of milky chocolate, coffee notes are present as well as the lactose.
A: Pours a dark black with a three-finger mocha head that leaves sudsy yet thick side lacing.
T: Initially sweet with the obvious lactose taste, and faint notes of expected sourness. The finish is strong toasted bread and roasted malt with just a hint of the sweetness lingering.
P: A little too thin and watery on the body, although it did gain some creaminess as it warmed. Carbonation was about perfect for a stout.
O: I absolutely LOVE milk stouts and this one was excellent, except for the mouthfeel. That being said, I will still seek out this beer as it is excellent.
