COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Imperial Whisky Barrel Aged Milk Stout.
Sort Mælk er som navnet så fint angiver en bæst af en Imperial stout, der har fået tilsat laktose for at gøre den ekstra fed og rund, hverefter den er blevet hældt på skotske single malt whisky fade for at give den smag af det skotske land, hvor den er brygget.

English: The beast has landed. A limited one time release Whisky Barrel Aged Imperial Milk Stout at 13,1 % ABV. "Sort Mælk" = "Black Milk"... Oh Yeah!

Wow. Was für ein Knaller. Das hier hätte ich gut und gerne mit einem Strohhalm auszutzeln können ! Unfassbar, was sich hier alles abgespielt hat. Süß und fruchtig, leicht bitter, spritzig, knackig und süffig. Eine Bombe an Vanille, etwas Röstaromen, etwas Karamell - im Grunde ein Spektrum, das einer ganzen Eisdiele gerecht wird. K L A S S E.

McTapps (4923) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle from Koelschtrinker, many thanks! The beer has got a deep dark night black colour with a low head and smooth body. Wonderful aroma of chocolate, oak, whiskey and cake. Awesome taste of light grounded coffee beans, high quality melting chocolate, mild roasted malt, barrels, light whiskey, sweet brandy and deep red wine. Chocolate and high alcoholic finish. Very warming, highly delicious. One of the best beers in a long time due to its soothing and warming character. An absolutely feel-good beer.

Douberd (2828) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2015
(To Øl Sort Mælk) Bottle 330ml from a trade with RasmusOtt, thanks! Served into a snifter, ABV 10.6% Totally black colour on the body with a thick pour. One full finger of thick, dark brown head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Strong aroma of whiskey, I can smell it even while the glass is sitting next to me. Alcohol, vanilla, light chocolate. Great taste, whiskey that really compliments it, light alcohol, chocolate and vanilla and plenty of roasted malts, coal and ash on the finish, with a light but persistent bitterness. Full body, soft carbonation, just as much as needed, creamy texture and smooth on the palate. I knew it would be good but it surpassed even my highest expectations.

The_Osprey (2402) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
330ml bottle, 2012 vintage. Black, small foamy tan head. Aroma is soft smoke, pine, a little mint, soft chocolate. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is tangy berry, soft peat, bit of burnt plastic, creamy yet roasty, only a touch of alcohol coming through. Subtle barrel. Very good.

GlasgowTAD (220) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Pours a jet black with a frothy light brown head which recedes to a bubbly brown lacing. Aroma is cocoa, slight coffee, molasses and a hint of caramel. Taste is slight bitter coffee at first, chocolate sweetness follows, almonds, creme brulee and high-cocoa chocolate. Full bodied with a rich feel.

Smooth as silk with sweetness & some nuttiness upfront followed by a big bitter finish. Chocolate, espresso & wood give this big big, big flavour. Rated by BrewTom

erickok (3969) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 20, 2015
Very black body, thick head. Lactose sweetness, dark roasted malts, chocolate. Aging is certainly there but not overdone, hurray! Partly because a milk stout starts of eight a thick oily and (often too) rich sweetness, so it can spare loosing some body. So the end result is surprisingly balanced considering the heavy flavours and treatments this beer has had. Biggest gripe is that it’s very expensive and you also (or me at least) wouldn’t want to drink a whole bottle by myself. (Bottle at Le Gambrinus Tours, shared with Darren)

alexsdad06 (6305) - Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2015
11.2 oz. bottle from The Party Source consumed at home. Pours an oily, dark brown to black in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma has dark roasted malts, a bigger kick of whiskey, some peat, it definitely has a Brewdog spin but plenty of the base beer is showing through, wood, chocolate, molasses. The flavor has big roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses, whiskey, wood, peat, ash, this one opened up more as it warmed, some sweet comes through, but the barrel is always there.

FatPhil (9819) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 8, 2015
330ml bottle - shared by Kairi - thanks! At 10.6%
Very sweet roasty aroma, butter from the wood, touch of bacon fat, hint of alcohol. Black, large spongy persistent head. Full sweet palate, sticky and smooth, a bit heavy. Great rich sweet roast, nicely burnt, but no astringency. Alcohol quite well hidden under the huge blanket of sugar. Gently smokey, has nice dry herbal bitter notes from hops too, in the finish. Just a hit of whisky from that. Everything fits together well, and like BD’s lumberjack, I can overlook the excessive sweetness because of the sheer hedonism. Nice one.

tfredvik (1260) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a viscous-looking black body with a medium brown, rather small, but dense and creamy head that leaves a decent amount of traces on the walls of my glass. Sweet, lactic and strong aroma of milk chocolate and roasted malt.Vanilla and whisky (without any peat) in the back. Strong flavour of milk chocolate, alcohol, gentle whisky (actually, the lack of peat makes this remind me more of a gentle US bourbon than a scotch whisky). The alcohol is a bit stinging, and should have been better integrated. Moderate sweet taste with a quite heavy long-lasting finish. Full-bodied, creamy and smooth texture and soft carbonation. Very nice.
[33 cl bottle, 10.1% ABV, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]
