Draft @ Tilquin English Fest ’16, day2. Brune foncée, col fin blanc-cassé, presque léger moka. Arôme au nez fin grillé et toasté offrant de très fines et complexes effluves de café. Le rétro lactose est modéré et accompagne très bien le café sans devenir trop dominant. Palais est léger, finement grillé, café onctueux à souhait avec un côté lactose qui joue presque le rôle de crème de café sans pour cela devenir trop sucré et encombrant au niveau douceur comme c’est souvent le cas avec des milk stouts. Fini amertume noble accompagne chaque gorgée avec un café qui est vraiment bien exploité.

All that I can say is just "WOW"!!! Absolutely gorgeous and wonderful! Served in a snifter from a bottle. Pours almost black with a little beige head. The aroma is just an amazing mixture of roasted coffee, caramel, roasted malts and a pinch of hops. The taste is a great combination of coffee, burnt sugar and raisins. The mouthfeel is rich and full bodied, smooth with a wonderful slight bitter aftertaste. Absolutely fantastic!!!

Flanfl (621) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - APR 9, 2016
3.8% version. Black body, big fluffy brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, ashes, hoppy notes. Flavours of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, some dried fruits, ashes. Medium roasted malt finish, some bitterness. Long roasted malt aftertaste. Smooth body, medium carbo. Quite flavourfull for such a session beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Svart med fingerhøyt lys brunt skum. Lukter kakaopulver og espresso. Middels fylde. Lukter fløte, vanilje og noe salt lakris. Middels lengde. Kakaoen dominerer.

Butelka 500ml. Kolor czarny z klarownymi, ciemnobrazowymi przeblyskami. Piana bardzo gesta, bardzo ladnie zdobi szklo. Aromat znikomy, bardzo slaba won kawy. W smaku troche lepiej: na piwerwszym panie kawa, i w sumie tylko kawa... Po lekkim ogrzaniu pojawiaja sie lekkie nuty gorzkiej czekolady. Slodycz praktycznie zerowa. Bardzo malo laktozy co jest dosyc dziwne jak na coffe milk stouta. Goryczka znikoma, raczej od slodow palonych. Na jezyku pozostaje specyficzna dla coffe stoutow kwaskowosc. Piwo dosyc przecietne.

Pudding (229) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
500ml, bottle-conditioned. Pours very dark brown, with thick lasting tan head. Taste is ash, milk, coffee. Mouthfeel is prolonged, thick. Overall: competent milk stout with good mouthfeel for the gravity.

Maarten1993 (1004) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2016
Drank with Thijs 24-1-2016 while Malou was in the Netherlands for the weekend. For a beer with such a low ABV, this ber has a lot of taste. Milky and especially coffee is dominant. Very good beer.
