3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Oil-black with three inches of medium-brown head, moderate-coarse, frothy. Aroma is coniferous forest, sap, dark chocolate, some bark/earth and toast. Some caramel, hint of apple wood. Body is medium weight, but the carbonation is very low lending it a heavier perceived weight. Starchy and somewhat oily. Carbonation is fat and has little burn. Flavor is sap, spicy-herbal hops, light smooth caramel sweetness, toast/ toasted wood. Overall: defies style conventions. A hoppy milk stout: quite unusual, but nonetheless very yummy!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours super dark with nice one finger tan head that lingers. Sweetness comes across in the aroma, with roasty or chocolate notes. Taste is more bitter than expected, with burnt flavors. But there is a good layer of sweetness on second taste. Good stout.

Not a huge fan of this. Licoricey, weirdly hoppy, kinda reminds me of jelly beans. Disappointing.

330 ml bottle
Black beer with big cloudy light brown head leaving lacing. Aroma has pine, licorice, salmiakki and dark chocolate. Flavor has pine, rubber, licorice, fruits and lactosey sweetness. Palate is medium full with quite heavy carbonation and bitterness. Finish has quite heavy bitterness. Aftertaste is roasted with licorice, syrup, grapefruit, light roastiness and lactosey sweetness. Interesting Black IPA variation with lactose.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark with massive beige, stable, long-lasting head which also gives a very nice lacing. Another good looking beer by To Øl. Very interesting aroma, a definately not boring mixture of grinded espresso, coffee beans, dark chocolate and some roasted malt - very raw but pleasant. Expecting the beer to be sweet from lactose I was surprised to find it very dry with sweetish feel and bitter finish. Lactose is definately there but appears in very distincive, unusual way. The bittersweet aftertaste is very enjoyable. Alcohol is well hidden. With almost full body the beer is very drinkable and these 33cl makes me want more of it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a brown thin head and a very dark color. Smells a combination between a hint of coffee and chocolate and roasted malt. At first there is a hint of sweet lactose and malt and at the end you can feel the full roasted malt in a pleasant after taste. This beer has a medium to full body but its very drinkable, just to enjoy. A realy good sweet stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle @ Haandverkerstuene May 2014. Very dark brown, almost black body with a dense, small, brown head. Aroma of dark malt, light roast, coffee and chocolate. Flavor is medium sweet, dark, light roasted malt, dry fruit, light bitter and some warming alcohol. Fine body and good aftertaste. Nice and easy, maybe a bit one-dimensional.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2015 Pours black with a thick brown head. Rich aromas of cream, coffee, chocolate. Quite a bitter finish for a milk stout. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Really very nice indeed.
