3.43/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle poured into pint glass 28/6/11

A dark cola with a tight finger of mocha foam that hangs on for some time but only leaves a little lace

S some cold coffee and chocolate milk that's about to turn

T bitter chocolate and coco powder with a little plum and raisin on top of what I smell

M light for the color but well carbonated

O OK beer but that's about it, a little light with a slightly sour sweet smell

not the best offering from this brewer but not as bad as I expected from the score for this one

2.84/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Bottle marked SS.12.05 at 50 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma of sour milk fading to a wet cardboard
Head large (5 cm), light brown, creamy with some rocks, mostly diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Lacing none
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor of lactose with some coffee notes; sweet, no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, creamy, carbonation soft

Looks OK, smells bad, tastes – meh. Worth trying once while sharing the bottle among 4-6 people; share the pain. If someone offers you one, plead lactose intolerance.
