Roasty, chocolate, lightly smoky aroma. Flavor is fairly sweet, with a bit of fruity malt character. Finish is roasty and dry, with a touch of char.

Garnet-black with creamy taupe head that fades fast. Coffee, dark brown sugar, a bit of smoke, and chocolate chip cookies - appetizing, if not deep.
Char, coffee ground, dark chocolate and a roasty hit to end plus some blackberries but no hops to speak of.
Iced latte finish and dry linger. Light to medium, soft, crisp.

Good flavor profile, hits the sweet spot between sweet and bitter. But the body lets it down - for having both wheat and oats, it's not notably smooth and is in fact almost thin, more Dry Irish than Milk. That drops this down to an average stout.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of April 2013. Picked up some time back from Trembling Madness in York. I'm curious as to how they decided on the name for this one.

Poured into a Delirium chalice. Bottle conditioned. A very dark brown hue that appears pitch black in the glass. Yields a large head of creamy light-brown foam that lasts for a couple of minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Some lacing. Aroma of intense roasted malt with notes of chocolate, coffee, burnt grain, molasses, a hint of syrup and faint earthy yeast. Some slightly sour overtones.

Tastes of roasted malt with a chocolate character and a dry finish. Notes of dark malt, burnt grain, chocolate, coffee, subtle molasses, mild lactic acid and earthy yeast. Slightly sweet, with a twinge of liquorice and a malty bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and lightly tingly, but thin and watery for the style. Somewhat astrigent, with an aftertaste of bitter roasted malt, mild cocoa and faint sourness.

Hmmmm, OK but not amazing. Looks alright, though the head fades rather quickly. The aroma is pretty good, with a nice blend of chocolate and roasted malt, but the flavour is less well-rounded. Body is thin and insubstantial - could certainly use beefing up for a creamier texture. A worthy effort that falls short of glory. No harm in trying it, but no need to seek it out.

Black color, reddish edges. Average brown head.
In the smell a good milkyeffect, smooth, cappuccino, cocoa.
It is creamy in the mouth too, soft, with cocoa notes, toasted and milk.
Light to average inbody.
Quite short aftertaste, but still smooth and pleasant.
Good one, right to the style.

Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Dark brown, nearly black pour with nice two finger beige head with nice retention and lacing. The nose is nutty, sweet, and roasty with hints of cocoa, coffee, tobacco, and just a touch of smokiness. The taste follows suit with some strong nuttiness along with hints of cocoa, roasted coffee with milk, brown sugar, dark fruits, and some subtle milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is a bit fizzy and slightly thin with a sweet, dry finish. Overall, this felt more like a Porter to me. I'm not a fan of Milk Stouts, but this wasn't as sweet as most I've tried. Solid beer, but nothing special.

Pours black with a small, rapidly dissipating head.
Nose shows milk chocolate, roasted malt and corn-like notes. Tempting, apart from the corn...
Similar milk chocolate and roasted malts as flavours, but very sweet. Needs more roasted malt and a stronger finish. End weakly.
Body seems watery and the carbonation is too high.

Bottle is on sale since the best before date is a month away.

Pours dark with some highlights at the bottom of the glass. Fluffy tan head.

Smells sweet and chocolatey with a nice roast component.

A little sweet and chocolatey with a underlying roast that takes over a bit towards the end.

Smooth drinking medium bodied stout.

Good beer but nothing I'd spend the time and money on when in the States.

On-tap at the Local Taphouse in Sydney as part of their Italian Spectapular festival.

Pours a clear, deep brown colour that looks very light and a touch insipid. Beige head that forms a bubbly ring like someone spat in my glass and swirled it a little bit. No lace. Looks very average.

Mild roast on the nose, with a dull character of drip coffee. Some light cocoa sweetness, but nothing really approaching "chocolate". It's pretty dull, but not too bad.

Light cocoa on the front, roastiness on the back. That's about it, to be honest; otherwise it feels pretty flat, thin, weak and dull. There's more of that brewed coffee character, but it has nothing to latch on to. Feel is woefully thin and weak.

Overall? So bland. So thin. It has some promising characters, but it just ends up so boring. Inoffensive faff.
