Aroma is very mild, not a very complex beer, good aftertaste though that gives a good linger on your palate, but overall i would have to say i was disappointed in it. Expected a more creamier taste, didn’t really get it.

Pours an almost black color. Very nice looking in the glass. Very little head. Aroma is bittersweet bakers chocolate with roast and caramel following. This beer goes down so nice. Very velvety and smooth. Flavor is dominated by sweet roast and caramel. Very little bitterness and no alcohol present. I really enjoy this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz, batch 7733. Pours black, with a tan head. Aroma of malts, dark chocolate, and a roastiness. The nose is nice, but fairly faint. Flavor is overall very roasted, with a sweetness that appears after the roastiness recedes. Coffee, chocolate, and the roasted malts are the predominate flavors. Mouthfeel is very smooth, with a moderate body.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours black with little head to speak of. The aromas are chocolate with some hints of coffee...almost a burnt syrup aroma. The flavor is very smooth with big hits of chocolate. There are some definite coffee and caramel flavors. The coffee flavor is the one that seems to linger the longest. The body is medium-heavy with medium carbonation. This is a good sweet stout!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with thin chocolate brown head from a bottle. Roasty, malty aroma lead to a similar creamy flavor profile. Not as thick as expected, and the high carbonation was a little unpleasant to the palate.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a deep brown-black with a creamy tan head that held up well. Aroma of chocolate, black malt, coffee and sweet cream. Flavor is incredibly smooth and sweet, a hearty dark chocolate malt and cream, almost like a malted milkshake. Some light fruitiness noted, along with a hint of bitter hops. Creamy mouthfeel, would be better on tap. Finished was bitter and satisfying, slightly warming alcohol hints. A delicious sweet stout, almost as good as Kalamazoo Stout, but still a worthy contender.

Pours black with a creamy brown head. Not too keen on the smell, kind of boring, but the flavor really makes up for it. Nice creamy feel at first. Today chocolate flavor. Not really any coffeeness to it, which is nice. I like this one.

Excellent beer. It is very malty and creamy, but not quite as heavy as a Guinness. There is no roasted bitterness, yet it is still malty.
