Castle Milk Stout has a thick texture, strong flavour and a full, satisfying and complex taste, with a hint of caramel. Dark roasted malt provides its distinctive dark colouring, and the creamy, smooth head comes from a special yeast.

My best beer in all of South Africa. Gem of a find at a Shebeen on the edge of the Kruger. Can was discolored and dented but the beer seemed fine. Nice milk stout, good fullness in the body with a slightly sweet roasted flavour.

Beer has a milky foamy head and a black body, little bubble coming up too. Aroma is just some scent of cardboard and alcohol, with a little hint of milk it would seem. Flavour is very smooth and crisp taste, milkiness as the bottle mentions. Great for quaffing but lacking in complexity. Overall a good stout with a unique milk flavour that doesn’t seem forced.

Bottle in Ghana. Light chocolate, medium burnt toast flavor. Not very hoppy. There is a nice creamy texture and lactose sweetness. Weak finish.

500ml Bottle from an Off Licence, Sandton, Joburg. Poured black with a dissipating tan head. Aroma was chocolate and sweet malt with a hint of licorice. Flavour was a touch sweet, with more roasty notes and chocolate. A tad unrefined but passable and probably one of the better easily obtainable brews in SA.

340ml Bottle. Pours black with small tan diminishing head. Roasted malt and molasses flavour and roastiness comes out in th taste as well. Some coffee detectable. Not bitter. A bit thin on the palate for a stout. Lasting roastiness in the finish.

12 oz. Dark brown color with minimal light tan head. Pretty on point with the style as far as aroma and flavor, but a bit overly simple and boring. Slight roasty bitterness and thats pretty much it (can find some burn chocolate and molasses if you dig deep). Medium bodied and a bit over carbonated for the style IMO. Overall: one of the best beer I have had in South Africa as of yet, but that isnt saying much.

Jet black pour with yellowy-brown head. Intensely roasted taste with tinges of burnt coffee and grain. Strong but tasty.

0.33l can. Medium bodied almost black colored with a brown small sized head. like drinking dark milk chocolate mixed with water. a little roasty. OK

(bottle - 340 ml) Dark black pour with a very thick brown head. Aroma is sweet and incredibly roasty with some sweet malts at the end. Flavor is very roasty at the start with lots of burnt coffee, roasted and toasted malts, and a lot of cream at the end. Very thin for a stout, almost reminiscent of a porter.

From can in Pretoria. Thick texture, creamy, semi-sweet, with a little balancing bitterness from the roasted malts.
