Keg, one-third pint at BrewDog Castlegate. A tan-coloured head resting over a jet black body. Clingy lacing. Chocolate malty aroma, mid-sweet and mid-dry. Taste of vanilla chocolate added by nuts and spices. Mid-sweet dark malty ending, lightly roasted. Fine bodied. Enjoying (Aberdeen 19.04.2016).

Keg at The Bottle Shop, Bermondsey as ’Almanac Horchata Almond Milk Stout’. Dark brown, clear, still, small foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, biscotti, coconut macaroons and, of course, almond. Nice. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is a little thin, bready, almond, metallics, dry finish. Pity about the thin taste because the aroma is very inviting. kryon (3808) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2016

Overall, tasty enough after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2016
Draft at SB. Pours an opaque matte black with a thin tan head that quickly fades. Sweet nose, chocolatey and a bit roasty. Cinnamon in the background. Creamy thickish body with soft carb. Roasty chocolatey mid palate with light cinnamon, not as creamy or sweet as an actual horchata but it’s flirting with that neighborhood. A nice drinkable beer, maybe intentionally dialed back from that full horchata sweetness so as to be more drinkable. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2016
Draught at The Beer Junction, Seattle
Black color. Nice chocolatey beer, a bit roasty, moderately sweet, with some lactose; didn’t get orchata or almonds here.
