Chicago Trip. Saturday 01:00. Bottle from Sam’s. Consumed at the motel. Light caramel coloured head on dark brown. Malty, beery, dusty aroma. Body is bit thin. Caramel, milk and oatmeal with a soft spice. A mid day sessional with a sugary finish. kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2007 Pours to a dark brown with very thin light tan head that dissipated quickly to no lacing. Aroma is faintly sweet chocolate, and the mouthfeel is thin and watery. Flavor is a little more pronounced malty choclate, and a taste that may have been milk, though it was too faint to tell.
The finish was light, short and watery. Best leave thge lactose for baby’s formula and old folks’ breakfasts. Hoser (387) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2007
Sweet and very full bodied for the ABV and a good crossing between milk chocolate and stout. Page 164 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 193 of his 500 Classic Brews to go. AndrewC (376) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2007
A dark beer with a copper tinge to it. The smell is a combination of dog sick and spoiled milk. It tastes of dilute battery acid mixed with milk on the turn. Awful NachlamSie (3485) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark brown/red with no head at all even when I poured vigorously and swirled the beer. I take a sniff and ask aloud, "How? How is this skunked?" The aroma is skunky paper with very thin mocha. The flavor is much better, but not delicious by any means. There’s a nice milky chocolate flavor in the light palate. This is smooth up front, but finishes like a bad, light-struck pils. This is very disappointing. At least I’ve found a strong candidate for worst sweet stout I’ve ever had.

11.2 oz bottle from Sam’s Wine and Spirits. I read is Malta a country? Well then its the first beer I’ve rated from Malta. Pours a dark brown black with a fizzy red brown head. The nose is fresh malt, like on a brew day with chocolate and a hint of sour fruit. Flavors of sweet chocolate, with a strange sour after taste. Light and watery. Strange one, but hey Carmel Color Added. Thats exciting. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2007

12oz - thanks beastiefan2k - Aroma is more dark lager than stout. Subtle roasted malts and caramel. Pours black with a medium dark brown head and good lacing. Flavor is sweet caramel and roasted malts. Palate is thin and sticky. Different, but not too exciting.
