Sweeter and smoother than Kalamazoo Stout. A beer for special winter occasions. Great with chocolate desserts. Available October-March.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2012 Not as much aroma as I would’ve expected. A little bit of smoke. Tastes roasted. Chocolate, a little coffee, with a little bit of biscuit. Not quite as smooth as a cream stout should be, but great on the palate. Pleasant, welcoming aftertaste.

Poured from a bottle dted 1/25/12 into a pint glass. Pours a very dark brown but not exactly black. Brownish two inches of head and moderate lacing. Smell of coffee and cola. Mouthfeel is thick and decadent but not overly oily or rich. This certainly isn't an imperial stout. Taste is sweet with hints of coffee and sugar. Similar to Kalamazoo but not as bitter ie sweeter and less coffee and no licorice, yay! Very solid stout but too sweet for me. I like mine a little dryer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (12 oz). From a trade, thanks dresden! Black with a small beige head very little lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and hints of dark chocolate. Taste is about the same with a dark chocolate chocolate finish. Interesting creamy mouthfeel with a dry finish. Good Sweet Stout!

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.

12 oz. bottle. It pours dark brown with a fine tan head. The aroma is a little on the weak side with light notes of roasted coffee, raisins, anise and a hint of toffee sweetness. The flavor is sweet with mild notes of soda pop, but cut nicely with some dense roasted malt, toffee, and only light notes of fig and dates. The mouthfeel is soft and pretty thick. Nice beer.

12 oz. bottle from The Party Source, Bellevue, KY. Served at cellar temperature and it still very weak nose of roasted chocolate malt. Good thing the flavor is nice. Smooth creamy texture with a drying affect. Flavor is rich roasted malt, chocolate and sugar. Some light coffee nuances. Lactose sugar is used here without a doubt. This beer is one-dimensional but that one dimension is done really well. I’d love to try this on Nitro.

Awesome black pour w/ a great tan head that leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is a little faint - w/ some chocolate notes. The taste is kind of plain w/ a touch of bitterness in the end. Light & drinkable - overall pretty solid!

jsmerig (1303) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours a deep near black brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of coffee roasted and smokey. Taste is sweet up front with a creamy mouthfeel that carries the beer from sweet to roasted with a clean finish and residual smokiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
