Appearance was clear black with creamy diminishing tan 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas where sweet biscuity chocolate malts, hops and yeasts are subtle but earthy spice. Taste was simliar to taste with chocolate, slight fig and dates,but mostly chocolate. Palate is simple light smooth CO2 with light-medium body. A easy average length finish. To simple and thin...

Thanks Jacky and Nicole for bringing me this nice beer from Malta. Black-brown color with brown fluffy head. Good aroma’s of burned coffee, nuts, wood and lactose. taste is smooth and on the sweet side. It has hits of black chacolate, strong coffee with sugar and milk, and some roasted bitterness in the end.

A black coloured beer with a pale brown head. A sweet roasted aroma. A sweet taste with a very small sence of bitterness. How can a beer with such a bad aroma taste so good. (Bottle 28.5cl 3.8 alcohol% in my version and a half year past its expiry date)

OK so did you ever have a baby just finish nursing who you lifted above your head for a big smile, and while your mouuth was open the baby spit up the breast milke? well that is what this tasted like add banana baby food to the mix...watered down; very thin.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 15, 2009
Pours black with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is cream and caramelized sugar. Body is fairly light for a milk stout, with flavors of chocolate, coffee and milk sugar. Not too bad.

Dark red/brown with tan head. Bready, wheaty wow, smells just like wheat bread, tastes like wheat bread. A tad milky but the hearty oats and wheat dominate the taste landscape of this beer. Interesting, but I don’t think I could get by my first impression to get anything meaningful out of this beer.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2008
Very good looking, black, small biege head. No aromas. Bitterish, sweet, roasted taste and nothing more. Not interesting and too much lactose/dextrine. meh...too watery

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - APR 2, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 Pours a dark brown with a bubbly red-brown head. Aroma is some caramel notes, not much else. Taste is a touch bitter, creamy, sweet; also a bit coppery but I suspect that has more to do with the bottling/handling than the brewing. It’s not great tasting but it goes down smooth. Not one I would recommend.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2009
This poured a sparkling yet impenetrable dark brown, almost black colour. It was virtually headless, and almost devoid of any aroma as well. I could barely detect anything (chocolate milk, maybe?). The taste was quite mild, rather un-stoutish with that underlying chocolate milk thing again. Mouthfeel was not so bad.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a pint glass. There is no freshness date on the bottle. Appearance: The body has a nice dark chocolaty brown color with a light brown, chocolate milk shake like head on top. The head has very good retention makes tons of thick light brown lacing on the glass. Smell: Its aroma has a mix of leafy hops, minerals and smoky roasted grain. Taste/Mouth Feel: The flavor has hints of coffee with cream, some smoke, sweet roasted gain, leafy hops and a light dusting of dark coco powder. It has a nice medium body with a silky smooth texture and soft carbonation. It is slick but not overly thick or cloying at all. Notes: There is a lot of flavor packed into this little beer that has only 3.8%abv. This could be a nice dark session beer.
