Pours black with a mocha head. Smells of chocolate and coffee. It has a nice roasted coffee flavor that goes down smooth and rolls around like velvet in your mouth.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 Best cream stout I’ve found. One of best stouts I’ve tried. Well balanced and amazingly smooth. No funkyness to the lactic aspect. Great moutfeel and finish/aftertaste.

Aroma is creamy and almost sweat with hints of molasses and coffee as well as a sour note. Appearance is very thick reddish black with zero transparency. Flavor is full and rich with strong coffee. All of it is evened out by a very smooth creamy flavor (and texture). Finish is slightly sweat and coffee with no bitterness. Overall I would buy this beer again and again. It seems to have become one of my favorite stouts (though I have only had it twice).

Dark brown, thick, sweet malty goodness from the great Bells brewery in Michigan. Nice typical hints of roasted malt and chocolate, coffee undertones. A dessert beer, super tasty but remenber DENSE. A great stout!

Jet black, admits no light. medium tan head, disappears quickly, leaves nice lacing. Aroma of cafe au lait with burnt edges. Taste begins with chocolate, then progresses to roasted coffee beans, then finally to burnt espresso. Very nice indeed. Laid down 6 bottles tonight, hopefully I can wait a year.

One of the best Cream Stout I have ever had. Very complex malt characteristics, mouthfeel was rich, and strong nose make it all around a winner!

12 oz bottle. Huele a chocolate y un poco de cafe. Sabe igual, con demasiado cafe pa’ mi. De todas formas sabe riquisima y es tan suave como indica su nombre.

12oz bottle, pours pitch black with a tan head. Aroma is very coffee and chocolate forward. Taste is sweet chocolate, roasted coffee, very smooth. Fantastic stout.

Black color, opaque, big buddy tan head. Extra good, malty goodness, laces well, complex for a cream stout, this is no one-trick pony. Roasty-toasty soft, great palate. I really love this beer, it approaches perfection.
