martin00sr (4326) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle, slow gusher. Nearly black with huge tan head. Roasted malt, milk chocolate and coffee aroma. Similar flavour plus some caramel. Finishes with coffee bitterness and notes of licorice. Pretty good for the ABV.

BeardedAvenger (968) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2017
Keg at Beany Green, Southbank. Tasting possibly hampered by being out by a cold wintery Thames. Feint sweet malty aroma. Deep and dark, like my eyes. Good creamy beige head. A sharp bitterness bursting through sweetness. Brown sugar, lactose, coffee and berries. Thick bodied. Soft yet crisp in me gob. Long understated finish. Enjoyable. Definitely sweet but the coffee then gives it a kick.

Cask Half Pint at White Horse Old Ale Festival 2012, Parsons Green, London in Nov 2015 - Dark Brown / Black in colour. Average foamy tan head. Excellent lacing. Malty; roasty malts, lots of coffee, sugar, some chocolate. Fruity; dark fruits, raisins. Sweet roast coffee malty throughout. Very flavourful for such a low ABV. Very drinkable. Very nice Sweet Stout! (2015-11-20)

Cimbasso (932) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle from Prohibition Wines. Pours a dark brown/black colour with a beige head. Slightly antiseptic aroma. Taste of milky coffee, milk chocolate, liquorice, wood and cigar ash. Bitter, woody finish. Very tasty considering the low ABV. An enjoyable milk stout.

theprof (1080) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2016
Bottle. Aroma has a definite coffee and licorice note. Pors dark with thin bubble top. Tastes sweet malts and caramel. But very smooth and with a growing licorice flavor on the palate. I have not had WB beer before but will check out more.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2016
Bottled (Spontaneous KSMT tasting).Black colour, mediumsized beige foamy head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, some vanilla, liquorice and mild toffeeish notes as well. Flavour is very similar, in a very smooth way. Rather nice for being this low abv’d.

MelvinKalksma (1630) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque dark brown/black beer with slight yeast and with a slight/medium beige/brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Has a lot of roasted flavour for a Sweet Stout, with that lactose giving a nice sweet touch. Extremely tasty for its abv, but the aroma could have been stronger.

BlazerT (1202) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle. Teku. Deep brown/black with medium, light brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts (mainly coffee, secondly chocolate), moderately caramel and light ashy notes. Taste is lightly bitter mainly due to addition of coffee, also lightly acidic, but first of all semi-sweet (chocolate-like). Medium body, slick/thick texture, soft carbonation, finish is coffee and chocolate with light sweetness. In general very good composition of roasted malts, which gives it nice and smooth taste.

MarcinG (946) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2016
QButelka 500ml. Czarny kolor. Dosc wysoka bezowa piana ,ktora opada dosc szybko do obreczy. Aromat kawy lukrecji czekolady kakao. Slaba kremowa tekstura i niska karbonacja. W smaku na pierwszy plan wybijaja sie nuty czekoladowe i kawowe do tego lukrecja i owoce lesne z typowymi palonymi slodami. Niezly milk stout...jednak jak dla mnie niezbyt kremowy jak na ten gatunek i moze troche za slaby.
