oh6gdx (25552) - 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 abvd.

MelvinKalksma (1106) - UTRECHT, 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 (606) - 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 (608) - 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.

NikkTwist (2859) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Looks and smells like coffee. Tastes of roasted malts and glossy coffee sugar candies. Hints of vanilla, hazelnut, currants, and chocolate liquorice. Smooth but feels watery for a Milk Stout. Not overly sweet. Not overly bitter. Not overly complex.

6bottlepack (227) - Devon, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle from Hops & Crafts Exeter,pours black with a foamy beige head. Aroma of fresh coffee,some roasted malt & fruit notes. Taste coffee up front with dark malts ,roast,dark chocolate ,lactose & so,e fruit,light bodied ,smooth & slightly chewy,perfectly carbonated ,good mouth feel ,the finish is dry, roasty , & creamy ,not as sweet as expected for a milk stout ,which is good in my opinion . Really well made low strength stout that tastes bigger than its strength !

Pitch black with a dark cream head. Pours very lively and keeps its head. Smells of coffee with chocolate undertones. Tastes very sweet coffee. Not a fan.

JorgeLee (1854) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
On tap at the Euston Tap. Dark brown, off white foam. Mild roastiness, sweet lactic almost sugary character, then strong iced coffee flavour. Getting a bit bored of gimmicky coffee beers but this was actually quite nice.
