Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. Black with a tan head. Aroma of roast, stale coffee with milk, and a bit of cardboard. Sweet flavor with stale coffee with milk, and a roasty finish. Light-bodied. DIBBLE (103) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Aroma of roasted malt, burnt veg. Pours pitch black with thin tan head. Slight lacing. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, clean and smooth, near to flat. Mildly bitter roast malt flavour with weak sweet/creamy coffee notes. Lightly sweet, mildly dry, roast malt finish. TedE (1386) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2015
330ml can into glass. Pours pitch black with large coffee coloured head. Smells like milk chocolate and coffee. Tastes like iced coffee. Mouthfeel is medium and milky. With your eyes closed this IS iced coffee. Nice but weird. redders1974 (1546) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Pours mahogany with quickly disappearing head that leaves some nice lacing only 2.8 abv by t doesn’t taste watery more hoppy milk with liquorice and chocolate notes CV would pass for a mild or oiastmeal stout. gegwilson (3752) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Can from Morrisons. Pours mahogany with a tan head. The taste is slightly sharp and tinny, but with some reasonable roasty flavours of coffee and liquorice. It’s pretty thin as expected, but this is actually pretty good for the ABV.

Can from Co-op, Wrekenton, Gateshead. A black beer with a thin white head. It has a rich milk chocolate flavour, vanilla and oak notes with a creamy chocolate milkshake finish. Very nice for such a low ABV beer. hohops (1047) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Appearance is opaque, brown tinges at the base. A one finger beige foamy head. Aroma- caramel, sweetness, milky, chocolate, cocoa. Taste- dry roast, chocolatey, milky, some sweetness with hints of caramel, but it actually becomes bitter at the end. A bit fuller in the mouth than expected, given the low abv. Perfectly drinkable and pleasant. slowrunner77 (12451) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Meh. Takes what I liked about the XXX and dumbs it down, and unfortunately still has the thin palate. I’ll pass on this one. prawlie (1633) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Can into a Hoegaarden glass. This is a perfectly drinkable milk stout, but not likely to get rave reviews. It wears is chocolate and lactose colours on its sleeve, and while its a good balance it does taste a little lacking. MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Got some cans from the local co-op in Cowes. Easily drinkable with aromas of chocolate, coffee and spruce. Light abv with high drinkability and full body. Was surprised by the quality of that piwo. Thumbs up.
