Nose
Malty, strangely herbal and slightly creamy, becoming floral as it warms.
Palate
Juicy oranges over a dark, smooth malt base. Despite the dark colour, hops have the biggest say and there are none of the expected coffee or chocolate notes.
Finish
Dry and hoppy with lingering milky, caramel notes.
Comment
An unusual, pleasant beer that is in no way as heavy as it looks. The secret is that this is not a genuine milk stout but instead an adapted bitter, with caramel, lactose and vitamins added. But it's proved very popular since the 1940s in Malta.
