Sample at the Hopsnobbery Collective tasting on 12/10/08:Thanks to JaBier for sharing a bottle. The beer pours nearly black with dark brown around the edges. Ultra-thin dark beige head that diminishes quickly, and spotty lacing. Aroma of coffee and milk chocolate with a nice roasty undertone. Medium, creamy body with flavors of coffee and roasted malt, as well as a nice sweet chocolate presence. The finish is bittersweet chocolate with a roasted coffee aftertaste. Very good overall. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
650 ml bottle, only 6.49 from Discount Liquor in Milwaukee, in a state that FFF doesn’t distribute to, yet I can only find it for 9.99 in Illinois. Quirkly label art adorns the bottle.
Pours a dark black/brown with a small caramel colored head. Leaves come nice lacing.
Smell is really sweet, almost like a chocolate stout but with less cocoa flavor. Also has the roasted malt scent. Maybe even some vanilla in there.
Taste is mega sweet and delicious. More so than the other milkstouts I have had, it isn’t as creamy as some but it really feels and tastes like a decadent dessert. Very chocolatey, sugary, and carmally, decadence. No too sweet, not too heavy either, a really well produced beer.
This is about as drinkable as it gets for a stout and it is a great beer to cap the night off with.

Draught. Dotted spots on the glass. Naked black surface to an almost jet black body. Mid-sweet aromas of dark malts, with liquorice to the fore. Rich taste of liquorice, molasses and mild lactose. Lingering finish with a backdrop of dark fruits. Warming and smooth. Well blended and well crafted. Lovely (Black Sensation at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, Copenhagen 12.11.2015). thewolf (12595) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle @ Oz’n’NZ tasting 2011.hopdog (12541) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Completely black with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma has light milk, chocolate, a bit of liqourice, mild cold coffee. Lowish carbonation, soft and velvety creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet (indeed very sweet), roasted malts, milky chocolate. Light dry. Very lovely, but sure could use some bitterness to balance the sweetness.
Big thanks to BBB63 for providing me with a hand bottled sample of this gem. Poured a dark brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, milky and I think Eric hit it dead on when he said marshmellows. Aromas where stronger than the tastes with tastes of chocolate, milky, roasted malts and a little nutty. Worthy of seeking out.
