Can served in a glass, this stout was a dark brown in the glass and gave a one finger light brown cover of bubbles that receded after a few moments, it left many spots of lacing on the glass, the nose had aromas of roasted malt, with some chocolate and caramel, some roasted malt bitterness, a little coffee, malt and brown sugar like sweetness, the flavors were roasted malt, coffee that was stronger and had a bit more bitterness than on the nose, some chocolate, faint caramel, some malt and lactose sweetness, there was some roasted malt bitterness at the finish, the mouth feel was light, it was creamy and had average carbonation, the nose was a nice mix of roasted malt with coffee, chocolate and sweetness, the flavor was similar to the nose with a bit more coffee and less chocolate, this was a nice drink.

Pitch black with a beige head. The aroma contains some coffee, charcoal, and milk chocolate. The flavor is slightly sweet with some caramel, milk chocolate and a bitter bite on the end with coffee notes. The mouthfeel is a bit creamy. Overall well balanced not too bitter or too sweet. Nice one!

rosenbergh (11289) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2017
16 oz can. Thanks Jere! Black color with a tiny tan head. Vanilla, crème brûlée, mild roasted malt and sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, coffee, darkness, sweetness, vanilla and some lactic notes. Quite nice, just a little thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

degbert (1770) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Can. Pours opaque black with a high, light brown, creamy, sticky, fine-grained head. Nose is earthy, chocolatey, spicy, and has overtones of vanilla and treacle. Lighter than a lot of oatmeal stouts, but not in a negative way; really smooth and clean, while still carrying the darker flavor profile this style needs. Smooth as oiled glass. Delicious.

12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 6/8/2017. Pours crystal clear very dark brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, cream, herbal, light pepper, slight smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, cream, herbal, light pepper, slight smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, nuttiness, cream, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from roast/hop bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a great milk stout! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, almost refreshing. Very flavorful, with a nice body and mouthfeel for the low ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Can. Near black. Really nice one finger dense head. Roasty dark chocolate and coffee. Rather smooth and somewhat creamy. Straightforward but solid.
