Bottle at Leighton’s Euro Semi-Final tasting, thanks to jackl. It pours almost black, with a medium tan head. The nose is roasted malt, charcoal, coffee, salted caramel, toast and toasted coconut. The taste is tangy dark fruit, charcoal, blackcurrant, cherry, raisin, roasted malt, cola and balsamic vinegar. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. To me this doesn’t taste like a classic milk stout, but it’s a decent beer nonetheless. HenrikSoegaard (14235) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 29, 2010
