This had a difficult aroma to place for me. Smelled creamy with wood and grains. Looked great! Very opaque, dark brown/black with a lite off white/borwn head. The taste started to remind me of charcole bu quickly moved into a lite sweet candy/molassas taste. It moved back again to a lite hop finish with roasted malts. Underneath you could tast some spice like anise or clove. It was complex but not my favorite. Creamy body though, oily and substantial mouth feel.

Pours black with big off-white fluffy head. Butter/caramel aroma reminds me of a yankee candle. Flavor is everywhere Sweet malt,caramel,butter and chocolate. Very smooth body and mouthfeel. Very well done.

Wow. Bells hit a home run again; they’re so good at making stouts and porters......this one’s so creamy, I expected it to be cloudy white with whipped cream in it. great roasted flavors, subdued bitterness, ends with a mild hop flourish and lingering roasted maltiness. Excellent.

Thanks to MrFacto for this delicious brew!
Deep black with a ruby tint that appears when strongly lit from behind.
Thick creamy tan head.
Malty chocolate aroma that repeats in the flavor with a coffee finish. Easily earns it’s place among the other Bell’s Stouts and Porters.

Nice classic cream stout. As Colonel Potter said, "Not enough o’s in smooth to describe this one" The roastiness is there, but subdued and lots of flavor here. One of the few stouts that I could use as a session beer.

Opaque black body with a large mocha head. The aroma is a huge sweet malty assault. Tons of chocolate. The flavor is equally as massive. Chococlate, sweet malts, a decent hop presence. Medium to full body, fairly soft palate. Very nice beer from the king of stout brewers!

Nose is super maple brown sugar/cream. Milky flavor - perhaps a bit too ’creamy’ Maple & malt. Nice buttery finish.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2005 Mocha like aroma, distinct but not heavy, stong but mellow cream coffe taste, like a fine malted starbucks concoction, smooth rich aftertaste. Definitely on my A list

Dark as night with mocha colored head. Sour cherry mocha icecream nose with lactic undertones. Heavey weight with light sweetness in the mid palate and a dry coffee finish. CREAMY, wow that’s an understatement with mocha coffee notes and bitter chocolate. Very rich but not cloying or heavy. Awesome beer!

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2004 Bottle pours a luscious black with an Aveda Spa air brush tan head and some psychedelic lace. The aroma is of bitter chocolate and malt. The flavor is malt, sweet, bitter chocolate, and very smooth and creamy. They were right on with the name. This is one creamy stout. Overall, if I wanted to gain tons of weight, I would drink this.
