3fourths (8696) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle dated October 30, 2014. Dark brown with a thin ring of a head. Chocolate malt nose, slightly roasty with mild cream / milk. Light aroma hops are earthy and woody. Medium body, semi-sweet, viscous and chewy, thankfully not overly milky or lactic, though the cream character is more like artificial coffee creamer rather than pure cream. Roundness and heft similar to the character given by oatmeal. Carbonic and minerally. Creamier body than Kalamazoo Stout, malt is cleaner and flavor balance more enjoyable.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2014
On tap, poured into a snifter. The aroma is pretty much the same as you’d get from freshly baked brownies. There’s a touch of a licorice aroma late, but still pretty much brownies throughout. It’s a dark, nearly opaque mahogany brown color, with a light, tan soapy head and a medium thick, big soap bubble ring. A dense, sheet-like lace is left behind on the glass. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. Much as the name would imply, this beer is creamy with a silky/creamy carbonation and a medium-full body that brings to mind German Chocolate Cake. Smokey notes with cola and licorice join the chocolate at the finish with a zesty spicy swell. It’s surprisingly dry for a creamy stout, with a slightly astringent, burnt cookie / brownie and cola aftertaste.

Pours a dark brown with a thin off white head that dissipates quickly leaving little lacing. Very mild aroma with notes of vanilla and malt. Thinner mouthfeel than I expected. Coffee and chocolate notes with a toasty aftertaste. Not bad, but thin for a cream stout.
