A- Cocoa, mocha, sugary,
A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head.
T- Cocoa, dry, coffee, creamy, medium sweetness.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish.
O- For some reason or another I’ve always kind of passed over SKA beers. I think it’s mostly from the cheeky labels that look like a middle schooler would create or a hey our beer sucks but I’ll pull you in with an interesting label kind of thing. Anyways, I digress. This was actually really good. Not a favorite of mine by any means but as far as a sweet stout goes this one felt pretty textbook. Balanced, complexity in it, and all in all well rounded.

Pours a jet dark black color. Aroma of dark roasted malt. Taste is of burnt malt, with minor sweetness and caramel flavor. Slightly creamy and the milk flavor is evident in the aftertaste. Overall a decent sweet stout that had more stout flavor than sweetness. Imaena (2328) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - APR 10, 2015
Draught. This is a solid milk stout with deep roasted malts and a nice viscous body. Stuu666 (14094) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 4, 2015

Bottle at Bishops Arms, Bellmansgatan, Stockholm. Thanks to AndySnow. Dark almost black beer with a small beige head. Malty roasted aroma, vinous, licorice, caramel, hazelnuts, vanilla notes. Licorice flavor, caramel, raisins, figs, caramel, hazelnuts, some cocoa. jhp40219 (449) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 10, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a small khaki head that leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is cocoa, caramel malt, brown sugar, hint of licorice. Taste is cocoa, caramel malt, lactose, bit of vanilla and coffee. Sweet but with an interesting and unexpected bitterness of hop resin behind it. Fairly quick finish of cocoa and caramel. Medium bodied, thin texture, slightly high carbonation. Would have liked to have had a thicker body on this. Still a tasty beer! gschrade (1094) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tiny tan head. Taste roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. I thought this wasn't very good. I would not drink this again.

Jet black pour w/ no head or lacing. Bad bottle? Aroma is way too light for a stout - tiny hint of chocolate. The taste is not nearly sweet enough to pull this off - actually slightly bitter. Not a fan! snowdog140 (58) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Very deep and malted aroma, exactly what is expected of a stout, very dark, almost black appearance. A roasted taste with a few sweet notes as well, almost hints of coffee and chocolate, very drinkable and one I’ll certainly buy again.
