Pours black into an English pint. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving sheet lacing to coat surface. Chocolate aromas. Silky with mildly sour chocolate and pumpernickel front to back. Niall73 (2434) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
bb 08/07/14. Went for a fairly aggressive pour which resulted in a dense black/brown beer with a pale tan head. Aroma is coffee, sweet choc, a bit of licorice, rum... Light to medium body, mild carbonation. A touch of burnt treacle, bitter coffee, and there's was sweeter choc earlier in the proceedings. Nice.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black, body with a one finger fizzy brown head. The nose is really quite nice, very chocolaty and sweet with some nice roast and lactose. The flavor is pretty solid as well, nice clean lactose note without being overly sweet, milk chocolate, light roastiness, and a bit of light yeastiness on the finish. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering sweet finish. This was pretty darn good, very happy with this one, especially at a $4 price point. katrinaez (2139) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Light cocoa scent. Creamy and bitter with a nice finish. Touch of velvet. A little sweet. Nice deep brown black color. Bottle oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2006
Bottled. Dark ruby red colour, mediumsized brown head, lacing. Aroma is roasted malts with some sweetish hints, most likely from coffee. The flavour is dominated by roasted malts and strong smoke. Some hops, coffee is also noteable. Aftertaste and finish are quite lame with the rest of the beer, but very nice. Thanks omhper.

Clear deep ruby red color, medium lasting brown head. Sweet, chocolate, salty, licorice, alcohol scent. Smoke, roasted, alcohol taste. Coffee aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, medium high dry bitterness.
When blind tasting our thoughts never touched on it being a milk stout, we were rather surprised to hear that classification.
Bottle, Carringtons, Chorlton. Poured a deep dark brown colour with a restrained tan head. Nose showed some roasted malt and choc notes. Similar flavour. with traces of dark fruits, coffee and a little smoke. Solid stout overall. shrubber85 (11508) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle. Chocolate and roasted barley malt aroma. Dark brown-black with small head. Sweet milk chocolate malt and lightly bitter ash and herbal flavor. Body on the lighter side. Pretty good.
