3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Bottle conditioned: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard @ home on 7th March 2014, well before the BBD of March 2015 (batch 0003).
Looks impressive, the tan coloured head sat on top of a proper black body.
There is a definite coffee aroma within the malty nose, this carries on into the taste, along with chocolate notes. Labelled as íA coffee milk stoutí, it doesnít lie.
Youíd never guess the ABV was so low, this packs a powerful punch of flavours and itís body is both rich and deep in texture with a smooth feel throughout.
A very nice beer in deed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2014)
Enormous morning coffee aroma. Smooth palate, carbonation low. Very drinkable. Great balance, not too sweet, and not saying "milk" - and as Iím not a huge fan of sweet lactosey milk stouts, thatís a good thing. The coffee likewise is everywhere, but itís not in-your-face, nicely balanced. Lovely mild coffee ale.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Black with a lovely half inch of tan head. Coffee is definitely the main attraction, but itís soft and the sweetness from the lactose makes this easy drinking. Nice roast malts, good chocolate, and a bitter finish. Slightly thinner, but bulked up with an oily mouthfeel and a vigorous but soft carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Cask conditioned handpump Craven Arms Birmingham 17/12/13. A black coloured beer with a little beige head. Very dominated by coffee especially in the nose. Just about manageable for this non coffee drinker. A good body and tons of flavour even if it is nearly all coffee and certainly no lactose qualities. Acceptable. Score 3.6
Subsequent rating scored 3.9. Average becomes 3.7

Cask at Hack and Hop. Pours black with a small, very firm khaki head. Nose is bitter chocolate, vanilla beans, sea salt and mild aniseed. Taste is espresso, roasted coffee beans, vanilla essence, moderate liquorice and a touch of grass. Lactose in full view. Thin mouth feel with very bitter finish. Not bad
