COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). The subtle sweetness imparted by the lactose balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains which give this delicious beer its black color.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2006
From bottle. Pours a super dark red. Foamy tan head. Nose of light coco, chalky, liquorish and sour. Flavor follows, sour and rotten vege. Probably a bad bottle, although it looks like itís happen to others as well.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2006
Thanks for the bottle Ross! Pours deep, deep brown and a frothy, beige head that lasts. Leaves nice lace. Aroma is full on metal, sour milk, with the malt screaming to get through. Lots of wet cardboard and leather too. Sweet, metallic flavour, like I am chewing on a metal pipe covered in coffee. Very lactic, milky and sour. Ahh shit ní piss, what the hell, this is just shashed ass in a bottle. Thanks for sending it Ross. Iíll have to re-rate when I get the chance.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Dark brown, frothy head. Aroma is chocolate, cream, milk. Taste is lots of roasted malt, which imparts a nice bitterness as well. Light sourness, slightly dry. Great soft body, approachable. Finish is roasty, short.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Deep brown appearance with a medium sized, mocha colored head. Acerbic, roasted malt aroma that takes on characteristics of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Sweet malt taste that is a tad cloying; chocolate and caramel prevail along with almonds. Sweet, smooth, long lasting finish. (thanks to vikingsman69 for the bottle)

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of chocolate, nuts and roasty malt. Tastes of cocoa, cream, coffee and chocolate. Not bad.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - NOV 7, 2006
12 oz bottle. Black with a tan head. Lactic sour nose with vegetal hints, gets much better as it warms, becomes a peanut butter cup scent. Really strange, but pleasant. Biting coffeelike flavor followed by a slightly sour finish. Something is off here - this was actually a rerate. The first bottle I shared with gputty was very bad, but this is better. Still, off somehow.

CelticBrew (752) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Poured from 12 oz bottle nice dark, small hint of carbonation. Head was slight, of light brown sugar color. Aroma was of milk chocolates, coffee, malt and liqour. Tastes of light chocolates infused with a bit of sourness. Not really sweet IMO. Not the best stout I had, but fairly drinkable. No comparison with DRís Baltic Porter.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Deep and dark brown. Lively, tingly carbonation. Fairly light body, but with a creamy base. Big chocolate, roast and dark toast. Finish was filled with bitterness and coffee. Not really enough sweetness, and not much lactic.

shrubber85 (7555) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle. Coffee and chocolate milk aroma. Opaque dark brown with small head. Sweet creamy mocha coffee flavor with moderate hops. Delicious - on the hoppy side.
