ShivanDragon (4702) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
zwart bier met bruinige kraag, in echt stout glas,
aroma van zoetigheid, chocolade, mouten, en iets van de lactose zoals in een melkstout.
smaken zijn redelijk zoet (lactose), iets van melkchocolade, have, mouten droppig, zwak bitter, redelijk moutig, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, goed zoet.
medium tot volle body, glad tot romig in de mond, lage co2, en zoete afdronk. Geen extreem volle maar zeker een zeer lekkere melk stout. geslaagde poging ! Martinus (4737) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2014

Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes and Martinus @ weekly tasting. Opaque black color, medium sized brown head that lasts for a decent while. Smell malts, sweetness, liquorice. Taste malts, liquorice, sweet and again liquorice. Oily texture, medium body, suitable carbonation. Nice! DutchDrebus (6323) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2014

At the brewery: Pours near black with a tan head. Arom ais roasted malt, a hint of licorice, chocolate, an plenty of coffee. Taste is a lingering sweetness. Plenty of sugar and lactose are present in this beer. Tastes like a sugared up cup of coffee with milk, which seems to be what it was going for. Not bad.
