Bottle. Pours dark brown (black) with a frothy dark head. Slight notes of raisin, and a big chocolate rush. An impressive body for a 5.5% stout. Relatively harsh carbonation from the bottle, but I think I could have let it warm a bit before drinking. The beer is rounded out and flavorful.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is black with a small amount of fairly tight caramel head. Nose is heavily roasted and assertive lactose, gets a bit acrid and burnt. Taste is similar, extremely burnt malts really dominate, the creamy lactose is overpowered. Medium bodied and very creamy, assertive carb, moderately dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Bottle Shop Bermondsey. Pours deep brown with a creamy khaki head. The nose holds a lot of dusty chocolate, light roast, earth. Medium sweet flavor with ashy roast, burnt sugars, lactose, milk chocolate, scorched earth. Medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with more burnt sugars, chocolate, bitter earth. A by-the-book milk stout pretty much.

Tap@Kudu Coffee & Craft Beer, Charleston. Pitch black coloured beer with a strong off white head. The aroma is creamy with a touch of roasted’ness and aniseed. The flavour is creamy with a light fortified maltiness feel. Overall a reasonable milk stout with complexities.

Bomber shared. Sweet roasty milky with great body from the flaked oats. Not my favorite style but it might be if it always tasted like this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Black with dark brown head. Flavor is heavy chocolate. Lactose sweetness kind of detracts from what would otherwise probably be a solid stout.
