A Mes rate. Gravicask at GBBF.harrisoni (19535) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2009
Jet black with no head. Excellent aroma. Lashings of fruit, lots of coffee plus some plum and chocolate. The flavour is even better. Huge black malt hits first followed by rich rich chocolate, amazing coffee and glorious boozy notes. Stunning chalky casky finish with so much character and balance. Absolutely fantastic. Even Tom liked it!
At GBBF 2009. Black, no head. Definite American hop on aroma. Strong roasted mlat aroma. It’s a decent roasted stout. Very prickly on tongue, quite dry. Almost slightly minty on finish. Not very milky, good though Christian (13927) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2009

Pitch black body with a shinning surface. Sweet aroma of dark malts. Taste of liquorice added by lactose and ending with coffee bitterness. Medium bodied. Pleasing, but maybe a bit too sweet. Third-pint served from gravity dispense at the GBBF, 04.08.2009.

Cask at GBBF09. Alround rating: Citrusy pine to start with then the chocolate kicks in, on the sweetside, but very good and very tasty. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2009
Cask Conditioned Gravity Dispense GBBF 09. A black beer with a tiny ring of beige bubbles. A lovely aroma with chocolate, milk and roasted malts. The coffee in the nose is more subdued. Nice and roasty choc in the mouth with hot milk notes. A bit of a herby coddled finish. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2009

(as Milk Coffee Stout). Deep brownish amber colour, small brown head. Aroma is bigtime roasted malts, smokke and wooden along with caramel and syrup. Flavour is much the same along with some coffee and tar. Big smoky finish.
Cask (gravity) at GBBF 2009, Day 1. Billed as Milk Coffee Stout rather than vice versa but I guess this is the same stuff. Very dark - almost black. Actually quite dry and fairly heavily roasted. Clean mouthfeel, not too fat. Plenty of flavour. Coffee (of the bitter, Arabica type) is more prominent than the milky element. Enjoyable without being a blockbuster.

Opaque black color, no head. Intensive aroma of licorice and coffee. Sweet licorice, coffee, some roasted malts in the flavor. Smooth, not very burned but sweetish. Nice.
