Sweeter and smoother than Kalamazoo Stout. A beer for special winter occasions. Great with chocolate desserts. Available October-March.

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.

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.

limited sample. Burnt aroma dominates. Completely black, low creamyhead. Somehow I couldn't really become friends with the flavor profile, all I got was a burnt wood taste which stopped at a surprisingly light body and petered out into a ashen aftertaste. I don't know, must be me or the small sample....

Oh, Mama! Pours a beautiful opaque black with a rich, foamy, dark tan head. Tantalizing chocolate aroma. Roasted chocolate malts in the taste. Great mouthfeel. This is an excellent stout for any stout lover.

Pours pitch black with a dense tan head. Aroma is rich coffee beans, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Flavor is heavy on the coffee, with a decent bit of bitter dark chocolate. The roasted malts mellow towards the middle of the glass and the chocolate comes out to play a little more. It finishes slightly sweet but plenty creamy. The mouthfeel is smooth, slick and creamy. The body is rich and the carbonation is calm and unimportant. Drinkability is okay, it's a great brew but it's heavy, thick and I have a hard time drinking multiple roasted brews like this one.

A superb stout. Dense, luscious, tan head. Nearly impermeable to light. Very well balanced. An appropriate level of roastedness. Sweet and smooth but perfectly and crisply muted by the carbonation leading to a refreshing finish.
