ElDesmadre (3626) - Mikołw, POLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle. Sweet aroma of caramel, brown sugar, very faint metallic and roasted notes. Light sweet taste with a milky texture and a slightly milky and roasted finish. Good breakfast beer to have instead of white coffee.

coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle via beer world Catskill. Red wine with a bit of cocoa nose....WTF. Body is gentle and silky. Fast and quick to the finish. Let warm. Thin darker tan head settled fast to film. Very sparse pinhead lacing. Sugar and caramel come out when warmed. Easy drinking for sure, but not the most outstanding milk stout.

Half finger head. Nose is raisins and artificial smell jet black color. Taste is awful like water and food coloring definitely undrinkable sorry.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with a small light brown head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, lactose, chocolate. Flavor is about the same, light to medium sweet, not much bitterness. Bit of a chemical aftertaste. Fullish bodied and creamy in the mouth. Not bad, but not much complexity here.

Why advertise the fact that you added fake colour? Foreign concept to me, but then Ive never been to Malta. So indeed the colour is black with some caramel around edges. Pours basically flat with no head. Theres some lactose here. A little sour on aftertaste. Palate pretty empty. Bottle from Champanes.

Pours an opaque black with tan head one finger that quickly dissipates. leaving small to moderate lacing. Aroma of strong caramel, roasted malt. Hint of herbal hops. Very sweet. Very thin with minimum to moderate carbonation Long sweet finish. This is disappointing, I hate to say.

fidelis83 (2364) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a clear, reddish dark brown with a 2 finger, soapy tan head. Aroma is lots of caramel, apple, an odd acidity, white grape juice and light nutty, toasty and roasty notes. Flavor is caramel apple up front, roasted nuts, cereal grain, grapey-fruity notes and an odd, light acidity. Light, creamy to oily body with a light, blanketing and soft carbonation. Not bad overall, definitely an odd one, as much like a bitter with lactose as a stout.
