When you get to that time of day when that cup of hot coffee is no longer the answer, and you need something with a little extra kick, plait your bear, stick on your eye patch and grab a Black Perle. This milk stout is chock full of roasty malts, milk sugar, hopped with hand full’s of perle plundered from the unsuspecting and aged on a chest full of Zamorana coffee beans.

zacgillbanks (2284) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A dark brown-black beer with a powerful floral, fruity coffee flavour, milk chocolate notes and a bitter roasted finish. A superb beer, even better considering its below 4% ABV.

ladnewton (1413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2013
Cask at CBI, London on 28th April 2013. Solid black with thin tan film and pattern lace. Coffee and cocoa aroma. Rich coffee, spice and chocolate in-mouth. Rather sweeter aftertaste with berries and tanginess yet coffee returns late. Excellent. Smooth mouthfeel and fair body.

Erzengel (2560) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing. Batch No 0035. Bottled on Oct-13. Best before Oct-14
Dark in the glass with and intense malty-dry nose. The beer starts very intense: Roasted and coffee. The mainpart is very dry, even a bit dusty. Highly roasted with lots of coffee. The aftertaste is long, intense. Viscous, coffee, hints of sourness.
A very great beer - especially for the 3.7% extremely flavourful! --> 13/12/13/13

RichTheVillan (2770) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark brown almost black pour with thin tan head, roast coffee aroma, forward coffee taste backed with milk chocolate, not the sweetest milk stout, quite full bodied for low ABV. This is a very milk stout.

Fin (7379) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle picked up at ’Jacks’, Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon. Consumed at a wonderful house owned by the Blackwell family in Appleton, Oxon, Saturday 31st August 2013 Black in colour with a large sticky frothy head light beige head that sort of collapsed in the middle. Wonderfully creamy and rich beer with milkyness, coffee and a pleasant rich vein of roasty and tasty goodness, really quite lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed this beer. It’s great that Weird Beard can do beers such as this so very well alongside the strong and very hoppy numbers that they also do. A7 A5 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Black with a lovely half inch of tan head. Coffee is definitely the main attraction, but it’s 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.

Pyrmir (3336) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2014
On tap at O’Connors. Midnight black with tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee beans, burnt malt and mild smoke. Taste coffee, mild astringent, leather, roasted and pure coffee beans. Nice

tomekk1978 (447) - POLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Barwa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana jasno brązowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: na pierwszym miejscu zdecydowanie kawa, następnie płatki owsiane i ciemne, palone słody. Konkretny i przyjemny. Smak: umiarkowanie pełny, słodko - kwaśny początek. Następnie zdecydowana wytrawna kontra - kawa, palone słody, gorzka czekolada, z goryczkowym, lekko piekącym finiszem. Nieco zalegające nuty palone i kawowe, ale po chwili przestaje to przeszkadzać.

Svesse (6080) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2013
(Cask at Cock Tavern, Hackney, London, 25 Apr 2013) Black colour with foamy, beige head. Roasted, malty nose with freshly ground coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa and ashes. Impressive coffee aromas. Malty, roasted taste with notes of fresh coffee, dark chocolate, ashes and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Loads of coffee character, with very fresh flavours. Excellent stout.
