1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in deep brown with nice head and bit bigger carbo than usual. Lot of malty coffee aromas which I don´t like. Definitely a quality beer but not hitting my nose nor my taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Brown with no head. Nose is very malty. Flavor is equally malty. Didn’t get much of the chocolate others mention. Just lots of malt. Easy drinking, but not my style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Clear brown colour with low white foam. Aroma from chocolate, sweet milk and caramel. Body is light, with light chocolate, sweet milk, suggestions of green pepper along with tad sewer. Pretty un-sweet for the style yet reminiscent of a milk stout with its blend of sweet and toast. Unexciting beer but pretty solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml. Translucent, deep mahogany with a small head that lasts and leaves some soapy lace. Molasses, earthy cereal grain, and a hint of maize in the aroma. Front flavor is caramel-cocoa; turns ever-so-slowly to whole grain cereal sweetened with chocolate-molasses. Slight dry finish of flour and grassy cocoa. Light-medium body is nearly in the middle on all accounts: carbonation, mouthfeel (watery vs. sticky), and dryness.
