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.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours opaque deep black brown with big foamy tight creamy tan head. Aromas of sweet malts, rum, booze, pitted fruits, chocolate, lactose milk, floral, herbal, lightly grassy hop aromas, light caramel and butterscotch. Medium body, milky sweet light creamy flavour and mouthfeel, a touch of roast and hop bitterness. Finish is lightly sweet, refreshing, milky - a touch burnt and a touch vegetal. Not bad for a macro.

egg (396) - USA - JUN 6, 2017
Pours black with a light tan head. Visibly thin and over carbbed for the style. Nose is metal. Taste is light chocolate, dark fruit, cocoa dust, burnt wood. Not good for the style but having a mass produced stout isn’t so bad.

YantarCoast (1406) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 7, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is cream, coffee, notes of milk. Taste is sugary sweet, roasted malt, coffee.

Bootlegger007 (231) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2017
Thanks to Pete for this easy drinking (too easy!) several could disappear quickly. Pours black with a solid creamy light brown head, aromas of roasted malts coffee and chocolate, light spice and leaving bitter, I really enjoyed this.

Surprisingly good stout from SAB miller. smooth and sweet w a creamy mouthfeel and slight creamy mocha flavour. body is quite light and creamy. a bit of hops toward thhe end. a little thicker and would be better.

440ml Can: Pours black with rocky tan head. Aroma of caramel and dark fruits. A slight roastiness with hints of dark chocolate, coffee and caramel/toffee. Medium light bodied, medium carbonation, medium low bitterness. Overall an easy drinking beer.

BeerLieutenant38 (112) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 13, 2017
Bottled (750ml) Black colour with brownish-tan head. Medium sweetness, dark chocolate and coffee. A reliable standby from SAB. Very nice on tap as well, with a creamier texture.

Nicke80 (786) - Södertälje, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2016
340ml bottle at Montecasino Johannesburg. Pours black with medium head. Roasted coffee aroma with similar taste. Sweet after taste with hints of cocoa and coffee.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Bottle, Nassau Bahamas. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy brown head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is slightly sweet with lactose and chocolate, some roastiness, a little burnt note. The flavor is pretty decent, not overly sweet, but plenty of lactose. Nicely roasty and chocolaty without any burnt or acrid notes you sometimes get with stouts. Medium bodied with just the slightest bit of cling and soft gentle carbonation. Pretty good stuff, far exceeded my expectations for a South African beer.

Homer321 (5117) - Melboring, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle from Nassau on a cruise. Sweet milky aroma. Light coffee. Faint chocolate. Taste is a little roasty followed by a light milk sweetness. Like coffee and cream. A tad thin, quick finish. Not bad.

SarkyNorthener (4676) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle from an African shop in Carter’s Green, West Bromwich. Black beer with medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Taste is light coffee, roasted malts and a sweet lactose finish. Not bad.
