Draught at BQ (Naviglio Grande), Milano. Color dark black with medium lasting white head. Aroma malt, roasted, coffee, chocolate. Taste sweet, caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasted. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. I really like it.

Black, light brown head, not too compact.
Cappuccino in the smell, on a base of dark malts. A hint of light tartness. Some olive hint?
Same notes in the taste where the "milkness" is very light. There are some burnt notes, dusty notes, and a light saltish hint.
Burnt aftertaste, with toasted and coffee. A bit raw.
If it would be a milk stout, it lacks of some of the sweetness and creamy texture of the style.
