UPDATED: DEC 31, 2003 a thick black, creamy beer. slight tan head that recedes quickly. smells like coffee and roasted malts.... goes down smoothly, with a savory and sweet roasted chocolate flavor with a bit of a bitter finish. smooth. creamy. delicious.

12oz Bottle: Pours virtually black w/ a small brown head. Aroma is of sweet malts & grain. Sweet malts fade into a nice roasted coffee flavor towards the end. Aftertaste is all roasted (yet sweet) malt/mocha flavors. Very smooth & creamy mouthfeel. Yummy!

Pours dark brown with little to no tan head. Aroma is roasted and sweet malts. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, caramel malts, other things that are dark. Finishes pretty bitter. It’s ok, but certainly not their best stuff.

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.

As far as non-flavored sweet stouts go, this one rates high. Smooth and robust. They use 10 different malts. This brew has more grain depth than the typical sweet stout. No coffee, no chocolate, just straight up smooth and creamy stout.

Pours a dark, dark brown with a small tan head that vanished quickly. Pleasant chocolate and molasses aroma. Great taste of chocolate and malt with a bit of coffee. Incredible creamy, smooth finish makes this one of my favorites.

Gooey, ooey, rich and chewy. If you like a full flavored, chocolatey stout you can’t go wrong here. Just bowls you over with the endless flavor

Bottle at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe. Not overly impressed. If I didn’t know better, I would never have guessed this is a sweet stout. Tasted very mainstream. Nothing that made me want another. Switched to the Expedition stout-- much better.
