a definte above average stout. does NOT contain any lactose and was not as creamy or smooth as i thought. label said contains 10 malts. wow. pretty roasty, but lacking the depth of the normal kalamazoo stout.

A wonderfully creamy stout. It pours piutch black with next to no head - even if you try to get one. A nice taste and aroma of coffee and chocolate. A definite winner.

Black brown opaque body with off white cap of foam. Nose smoke, dark chocolate, coffee. Taste same notes with sweet coffee slight roasted finish. Mouthfeel milky with medium carbonation. Over hyped imo. Grows on you after warms up. Sweetness more noticeable mouthfeel creamier.

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.

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.

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!!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.
