From bottle. Nice brown head, lasts a while with nice lacing throughout. Very roasted, malty aroma. Rich mouthfeel, with a nice malty finish. Smooth. Nicely carbonated.

Pours very dark blackish, with a great head and great lacing. Smells of coffee, prunes, dark chocolate, cognac, and licorice. Tastes very roasty and creamy malty. Finishes very smooth, with a creamy, roasty flavor. Very bold. This one reminds me of the Lancaster Milk Stout. Very nice beer.

Bottle pours coffee black with a frothy tannish head.   Lacing appears to be uber sticky.   Sour cherries, semi-sweet chocolate, and cheesecake of all things greet the nose.   Up front I get a large burnt malt flavor that quickly turns bitter towards the finish.   Mouthfeel seems a tad thin, but not bad.   Midway through an appearance by some bittersweet chocolate and sour cherries show up.   Lingering burnt malt after the finish.   Tastes like the blending of creamy cheesecake with sour cheeries and coffee.   Quite enjoyable.   Thanks goes out to TChrome for the trade!

Deep, deep brown in colur with a thin coffee coloured head. Aroma was very roasty, with dark chocolate, coffee, cream and sugar. The flavour was roasty, lots of chocolate malt, cream, pretty much a coffee beer. Finishes with a short medium bitterness. Thanks Michael.

Well I know it sounds like taking the easy way out, but holy smokes was this ever creamy. The rich dark dark brown body released the obligatory roasty malty coffee smells...but it was all enveloped in a buttery smoothness. And the flavour was more of the same with some chocolate tucked into the creaminess too. coats the tongue nicely and lingers without much bitterness at all. Yummy.

This is another really good Stout by Kalamazoo. Sweet, malty, and roasty flavors. Finishes bitter sweet, creamy, and dry.

Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Coffee aroma. Really roasty. Full bodied, coffee and cream like flavor. Nice coffee aftertaste. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Poured dark brown and almost entirely opaque (however allowing garnet highlights when held to light) and giving rise to a small tan head that diminished quickly to a ring of creamy foam around the rim. Aroma is dark roasted malts without smelling charred, bitter chocolate and cream. Flavor is unlike any other stout I've had I think, sweet yet bittingly bitter upfront, charred malt taste, coffee and generous earthy hops. Rich and smooth, a real pleasure to drink.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2004
12 oz bottle courtesy of TCHROME. Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Coffe and cream aroma, with a touch of caramel and butterscotch. Full bodied, with a coffee and cream like flavor. Malt bitterness lingers in the finish, and so does a nice coffee aftertaste. Thanks Tad!

Deep dark brown with small tan head. Rich malty aroma, almost vinous as it warms, definitely a touch of grapes in there. Bold chocolate and luscious cream. It smells thick. Full and generous sensuous mouthfeel with a gentle carbonation, as creamy as it gets, rich in flavours, very malty without much hop profile to balance, but not overly sweet. Rather short finish with a very mild trace of roast and bitterness, almost bland with not much going on. I like this more than I expected and I think it's the first stout my mom enjoys. Perhaps a little too rich/creamy toward the end from my point of view. Sounds like a fitting name for such a smooth beer.
