Appearance: Licorice/bistre/umber with a dark eggshell/tan head.

Aroma: Profound hints of coffee and cocoa - all wrapped in glorious, but not too sweet, lactate goodness.

Flavor: Just like the aroma, but backwards: notes of cocoa hit you like a tidal wave, only to have a strong coffee backbone come in at the exact moment you swallow. As for aftertaste, the coffee dissipates fairly quickly but the cocoa lingers and increases in saccharinity on your palate.

Mouthfeel: Bold and creamy with just enough bitterness for balance.

Overall: Easily my favorite Milk Stout, and therefore highly recommended to all who are looking for a Milk Stout that is not too sweet but full in flavor.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a pint glass. The beer pours black with a thick, creamy light tan head that retreats slowly Some prominent lacing is left on the side of the glass during consumption. The aroma is of dark roasted malts with some coffee. I don't get much sweetness in the smell, but it is there. The first sip brings some nice dark roasted malt with bittersweet chocolate. Then there's a roasty aftertaste of chocolate and coffee. There's a touch of vanilla. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. This beer is highly drinkable. This is an excellent beer.

This pours a pitch black color with a creamy, café-colored foam atop.

There’s a sweet lactic and subdued roasty aroma to this. Tastes mellow, creamy, smooth, with a milk chocolate flavor and a note of bitterness on the finish. Smooth like a French press dark roast… A real easy sipper. Exceptionally smooth.

Dessert beer par excellence.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From a 330 ml bottle (code on cap was smudged and illegible) into a snifter.

A-A slightly aggressive pour produces almost two fingers of dark mocha-colored foam. Retention is poor but a thick cap hangs around and there is some decent lacing. The brew is nearly black and opaque.

S-I smell lots of roasted, chocolatey malts. The chocolate is milk to dark in intensity and the impression is semi-sweet. There is a good dose of lactic sweetness, too. Not much char or bitterness to be found. The scent is a bit simple, but this beer is good at what it does.

T-There is lots of rich, milky, sweet cocoa and chocolate flavors here. The roasted bitterness factor is low (but not completely absent) and the lactic funkiness is moderate to high. I also get just a bit of dark-roast coffee. The finish gives just a hint of hoppy bitterness.

M-The feel is robust and mostly creamy, but not terribly heavy. Carbonation is soft. The feel pairs well with the flavors and style.

O-This is one of my favorite beers from Mikkeller. It is not over-the-top complex, but it does provide lots of well-balanced flavor, which is a great example of the style. The chocolate tastes real and although sweetness is high, it is appropriate for the style and flavors here. I will be seeking more of this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 33cL bottle into a St Bernardus goblet. Stamped 10031230.

A: About a finger of loose, tan head. The body is dark brown.

S: There is a rapturous quality to the scent. Perhaps it's a touch of smoked malt or tinge of brilliant espresso. I'm leaning towards the former, but perhaps it's just dry roast. Also a hint of sweetness. I can't wait to taste it.

T/M: It's good. Really good. The foretaste is the bitter, roasted, chocolatey stout I was anticipating, but then the maintaste slides seamlessly into a creamy vanilla-sweet beer. I like the juxtaposed flavours.

O: This beer is constantly on the verge of being excellent, but never quite manages it. As Paddy Kelly once remarked, "He's on the borderline of genius; but he never trespasses!" Still, recommended and worthwhile.

330 ml bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half tan head that sticks around for a while. There's also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, and some coffee. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some vanilla. It's a good roasty and sweet tasting beer. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick, creamy and easy to drink. It's also well carbonated. I think it's a good brew overall, I'd like to try this one again at some point. $5.99 a bottle.
