Bottle - black pour with brown highlights and a brown cola head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, caramel and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malts/coffee, chocolate with a sweet favor that gives way to a slight hop dry finish. Single bottle sample.

poured dark brown with thin creamy dark tan head that stayed around edge of glass and made for nice lacing. smelled sweet with scents of roasted mals, coffee, and chocolate. the taste was of the same with nice sweetness. a definite earthy flavor as well. an interesting brew for sure. enjoyable.

I have only yet had this on a CO2 tap but it was still quite nice, for a stout. Sweet and creamy as the name implies. Not the same depth as some of their other stouts but nice.

Bottle. Pours very dark, nearly opaque, even when held to the light. Nice thick, frothy coffee colored head that takes itís time going down. A roasty malt and chocolate smell. My wife says íchocolate covered coffee beansí. Nice full mouthfeel, goes down smooth. Tastes of chocolate and bittersweet tones. Good stuff, very smooth.

Drank a pair of bottles with my ex-boss tonight. Poured a 1-finger head, very dark. Smooth enough to almost be mistaken for an oatmeal stout, with a nice roast malt edge. Mouthfeel is wonderful, rich but not excesively sweet. A little lacing left on the glass.

I donít know what the design on the label is ...looks like a neuron ? But what I enjoy about, or say intrigued about this beer is the finish. Itís like a Tootsie Roll or butterscotch candy stick, but not overwhelmingly so (perhaps it would be a good pairing). fuzzy mouthfeel, mildly sweet and dry, aroma of burnt sugar, molasses, Sherlock Holmes. Appearance brown/black, cloudy, frothy, tan head finger high, dissipates after a minute, a bit trasparent on the sip, not a heavy fuel, yum

Bottle. Nice. special. creamy. stout-like. Buy it, itís one of the nicest stouts youíll ever drink. Well balanced. Not too nutty, the chocolate-flavor isnít too strong. Delicious.

pbjclimber (150) - Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Pours a very dark blown, almost black with a tan head. The taste is of light hops with a complex malt flavor of roasted malts and chocolate, the flavor is rather creamy, almost chewy.
