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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

toffsbury (115) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle from the brewery shared by kevinsenn. The first thing I notice is how big the bubbles are. Opaque black, no head, but very bubbly. Aroma is more roasty/smoky than I expect from what is ostensibly a sweet stout. Not sweet at all after drinking Moloko Plus. Creamy flavour and texture up front, but surprisingly bitter in the finish. Really smooth and drinkable, leaving a coating of roasted coffee on the tongue.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2007 draft. Nice not overly sweet stout. Very malty and chocolate with not a lot of hoppiness. Gently complex but easy drinkin’ stout. rr... still good with subtle complexity also including some hops and coffee flavors that I missed the first go round. I’m gonna raise it up.

AlephNull3 (114) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Pours a chocolate brown almost black with a very small almost non existant tan head. Aroma fills the nose with coffe and small hints of coca. Taste a mixture of coffee and a splash of soda water or cream soda. Dry tingling finish. Not as good as expected, but solid beer. Must try at least once if you are a stout lover.

TheChampion (114) - Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and toffee. Very sweet roasted taste from the malt, with a bit of chocolate and a hint of coffee. Extremely smooth and creamy body, exactly how a cream stout should be. Very good.

What a treat!. Pours a darkk brown/black opaque body with thin light brown head. Aroma is strong in roasted malts, and slight coffee, and chocolate. Tatses is sweet malts, and roasted nuts. Great taste. You can Hardly notice the alchol, it is so smooth and creamy, like butter on the throat. Very slight bitterness left with mild coffee. Awsome beer!!!

It has a little bit of a coffee taste that is common to stouts. It has a good frothy head to it that leaves fairly quickly compared to other beers. The froth a a mildly bitter flavor to it that is quiet enjoyable.

gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2008
Nice fine carbonation creates a pillowy head that adheres to the glass. Smells of dark chocolate, roasty coffee/chickory, faint molasses and hops. Tastes moderately roasty, chocolatey, has a very smooth mouthfeel, nice full malt body and sweetness, dextrinous. Very drinkable beer, delicious and would probably still be pint after pint after pint-

Pours black with tan head fading to a strong lace. Good oak notes balance bittersweet chocolate. Strong velvet cream mouthfeel.

A nice stout, similar flavors to the kalamazoo and expedition but a little lighter bodied smoother and sweeter, not nearly as bold and complex as expedition but enjoyed it as much, or more, as the kalamazoo.
