A traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). The subtle sweetness imparted by the lactose balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains which give this delicious beer its black color.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with decaturstevo. Aroma: Light cream aroma, chocolate, coffee, sweet malt, and a light sour fruitiness. Appearance: Pours black, but shows ruby highlights when held to the light. Light tan head was very full and frothy with great retention. Great lacing. Flavor: Deep maltiness with some coffee and chocolate, light smoke, a moderate sourness, and a touch of dark fruitiness. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Good beer. Lacking a bit in mouthfeel. Not as full as I would have liked. Also, would have preferred a little more sweetness. Still, good stuff.

Thanks to Suttree for this bottle. It doesnt have the depth of the baltic porter, but the same heavy palate is there. Aroma much like an oatmeal stout. Flavor has light smoke and rare roast beef as well as popcorn. Black and oily appearance.

From bottle. Pours a super dark red. Foamy tan head. Nose of light coco, chalky, liquorish and sour. Flavor follows, sour and rotten vege. Probably a bad bottle, although it looks like its happen to others as well.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2006
Thanks for the bottle Ross! Pours deep, deep brown and a frothy, beige head that lasts. Leaves nice lace. Aroma is full on metal, sour milk, with the malt screaming to get through. Lots of wet cardboard and leather too. Sweet, metallic flavour, like I am chewing on a metal pipe covered in coffee. Very lactic, milky and sour. Ahh shit n piss, what the hell, this is just shashed ass in a bottle. Thanks for sending it Ross. Ill have to re-rate when I get the chance.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Dark brown, frothy head. Aroma is chocolate, cream, milk. Taste is lots of roasted malt, which imparts a nice bitterness as well. Light sourness, slightly dry. Great soft body, approachable. Finish is roasty, short.

guzzler67 (1674) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Deep brown appearance with a medium sized, mocha colored head. Acerbic, roasted malt aroma that takes on characteristics of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Sweet malt taste that is a tad cloying; chocolate and caramel prevail along with almonds. Sweet, smooth, long lasting finish. (thanks to vikingsman69 for the bottle)

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of chocolate, nuts and roasty malt. Tastes of cocoa, cream, coffee and chocolate. Not bad.
