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.

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
