Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av choklad, kaffe, karamell, toffe, vanilj, rostad malt, laktos, lakrits med fatkaraktär. Stor sötma och kropp, fyllig, fina aromer, bra balans och beska. Gott! Hopmaestro (1882) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2018
Aroma is roasted coffee, dark malts and chocolate. Taste is mid-roasted malts, with coffee and milder dark sweet fruits and lighter chocolates. Not super sweet for being a milk stout, which is good. The finish comes in pretty dry, which also helps to get a second touch of those roasted malts. Good stuff Stefano (2060) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2018

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2018 Sample at AIBF 2017. Black with a brown/beige head. Loads of dried fruits, some roast, dark chocolate, caramel and lactose. Enjoyable. kapusil (1601) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 0.33l bottle. Pitch black body with a thin light brown head. Huge coffee notes in the aroma with nutmeg, chocolate, caramel, cocoa, tobacco and bourbon. The taste has a bourbon-like character too with sweet chocolate and caramel to balance it out and some floral hops to spice it a bit. Thick, silky and a bit flat. I like it.

Close to pitch black beer.cglans (399) - - DEC 10, 2017
Aroma is burnt toffee, lactose, dark chocolate, alcohol soaked raisins, oats and a slightly sour herbal note that takes too much space and drags the experience down.
Taste is fatty milk, same herbal note from before, toffee, hint of barrel, hint of portwine, alcohol soaked raisins and prunes.
Mouthfeel is thick, really smooth and creamy. Slightly sticky. Medium bitterness. Rather heavy sweetness. Low carbonation but just enough to compliment the beer.
Overall: Had this one on tap this summer and I didn't get that herbal note then. This is still very nice with a lovely mouthfeel and it really lives up to the "Milk Stout" style but as stated before, the herbiness drag it down quite a bit. Would've liked a bit more of a kick too, but the creaminess makes up for most of its faults.
33cl bottle. pitch black colour. small beige head. roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, carfamel. low bitterness. low to medium carbonation.
