Excellent stout. A great example of a cream stout that smells and taste excellent. A must try if you like the style.

wow. Great beer. Pours dark brown, very short lived head. Fantastic roasted coffee with caramel aroma and taste. Not overpowering like some beers of this style. I’d definitely drink this year round, with or without a desert!

2012 in the bottle: Nice roasted malt and chocolate taste and aroma. Very smooth and creamy. Some bitterness but smoother than your traditional stouts. Nice winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg @ McGrady’s. Deep brown pour with a tan head. Burnt brown sugar nose, caramel sweets. A bit of earth, dark chocolate. Rich malty sweet flavors. More dark chocolate, brown sugar. Cake icing. Hints of licorice. Low bitterness. Smooth, supple. Overall, a nice dessert beer.

Pours a dark brown with cola colored glints around the bottom edges. Huge frothy, root beer colored head. Brewed coffee and a little smoke on the nose. Thicker, slightly creamy mouthfeel and finishing with some astringency. Caramelized brown sugar, prune, smoke, coffee, and finishing with an ashiness.
