Pours a dark brown/black with thin, evaporating head. Aroma is sweet, but nothing too noticeable. Flavor has lots of sweet cream to it, along with some malt and a little chocolate. Oddly enough, some bitterness as well. Good, but not great.

Creamier than any stout I have ever experienced. Tastes almost like they added a almost expired carton of cream to this.
Very rich taste, roasted malt, creamy finish.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a velvety black with a creamy looking tan head. Rich and creamy malt aroma. I’ve never been able to smell cream this clearly in a stout before. Good strong coffee and cream taste that gives way to a smooth malty finish. Feels like silk in your mouth. MarkR, did you ever know that you’re my hero?

This stuff is pretty darn good. Big brown frothy head that is long lasting. nose is malty and creamy and chalky. The taste is bitter and creamy and somehwat chalky and the middle is rusty but finishes creamy and bitter with some roasted malts. Quite good.
