Dark brown with small bubbly head. Flavor is sweet and nutty chocolate with a smooth roastiness and enough bitterness to balance.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with some head that mostly fades away leaving only a long lasting ring of foam. Tastes very creamy and thick with a little bit of chocolate flavor. Has a very long and complex aftertaste. A good stout but not up to the hype, in my opinion.

I love this beer. Roasty, smooth, a bit sweet and chocolatey. Well-rounded treat.

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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured very dark brown with nice dark tan foam. Really nice lacing. Aroma is predominantly chocolate with some roastiness. Taste is very chocolately with mild nuts and coffee. Very little roasted flavor. Not too sweet. Very little alcohol comes through. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is not quite as thick as I expected. Very drinkable as a dessert drink or nightcap.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
