Black pour with tan foam; good clarity under cap; decent retention; moderate minus lacing. Lite roast and burnt milk nose. Touch of sugary milk and malt. Overall an ok lite and somewhat creamy/lactose dominant stout.

Taste: semi sweet, creamy, lactose, malty. Nose had a toasted milk aroma.
Black, mostly opaque, with a fine head and some lace. Full almost syrupy body.

Acquired in St Martin.

Pours a mocha colored small fizzy creamy head fades at a need pace, little lacing, super dark black.

Nose brings plenty of creamy lactose, milk chocolate, biscuity wafer, that typical UK style milk stout like biscuit malt thing, almost any UK style dark beer had that aroma, mild herbal grassy hop.

Taste is creamy, more milk chocolate, lactose sugar and dried feel, mild acrid roast and char, little biscuity cookie again. Fair bitterness with more herbal grassy hops that turn spicy and quite bitter on the back end. Again that typical UK biscuit and yeast flavor thing. Finish is very bitter herbal spicy hops, dried creamy lactose, little acrid roast.

Mouth is creamy med bod, decent carb.

Overall meh, iffy flavours and many different things mixed that didn't mix well. Not very enjoyable.
