fidelis83 (2359) - 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.

Bottle from Beers of the World. Notes of caramel, but pretty watery in my opinion.

Lore (2563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 14, 2017
Coffe-like appearance of dark brown colour and not too much creamy beige head; aroma of toffee filled chocolate, cocoa some herbal and floral notes; taste is the same with some dried plum and cherry, as well as syrupy notes; among the better beers brewed by Farsons

eunck (190) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2017
Almost black beer with brownish head. Head disappears quickly, low carbonation. Aroma of dark malts and a bit charcoal but especially dark fruits. Very sweet with a dominant fruity flavour overpowering the dark malts. Also sour. Quite thin, not very mouth filling. This is my first milk stout, so its difficult to compare, but the beer is pretty much as described in the style guide, only way fruitier than expected.

wombat23 (1227) - Texas, USA - APR 26, 2016
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black, with an inconsistent beige head. Subdued aroma of dark malts, some dark fruits, and vinous notes. Taste is more malty, with less dark fruits than aroma would indicate, faint chocolate, and lactose. Some oxidation present; might be a bit stale. Not good.

darbeer75 (824) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2016
Aroma: strong boozy notes, such as sherry(?) plus a lot of malt; Appearance: pitch black with thin, tan head that dissipates quickly; Taste: very flat (definitely could be the age of the bottle) with strong, sweet flavor; Palate; long, sickeningly sweet finish. Would not buy again.
