COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once valued for their perceived health benefits, cream stouts are now recognized for their malt sweetness and full body. This complex ale is packed full of coffee and chocolate notes.

BVery (6081) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2009
BOTTLE: Dark brown pour, thick tan head. Heavy coffee on the nose, medium bodied, taste is kind of artificial (mainly coffee, milk), okay, but just not a great beer.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of sweet malt, caramel, chocolate, some peppery hints. Taste yields an astringent bitterness that gets in the way along with some rubbery hints. Nose is much better than the flavor.

drowland (5992) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Had at a tasting at a Hy Vee Wine & Spirits. Nice mouthfeel, but off aromas like spoiled milk, and a weak flavor finished with coffee.

HonkeyBra (3325) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Dark brown pour with tan head. Aroma of smoke and light chocolate. Flavor is also fake smoke and light chocolate syrup. Creamy mouthfeel with little carbonation. Not so great.

Bottle. Poured and opaque black color with a light tan head. Smelled of molasses, dark chocolate, and dark fruits. Medium bodied and sweet. Roasted malt, chocolate, and date flavors. Decent.

fidelis83 (1932) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Pours dark brown with mahogany highlights and a 3+finger dusty tan head that has decent retention, eventually fades to a decent skim that leaves sparse lacing. Aroma is roast, sweeeeeet caramel, havarti cheese, creamed corn, sweet bread rolls, sour cream and custard pie. Flavor is roast, paper ash, spice, coffee with lots of artificial creamer, hints of berry, soy sauce, bay leaf, dry nutty notes and a strange - berry like acidity. Finish is cream cheese bagel dipped in weak coffee, light ash tray, mixed berry danish roll and crushed leaves. Palate is too thin for the style and too dry throughout, with aromas and flavors that lead you to think it will be more creamy. This stuff is strangely more "cheese" than "lacto" or "cream" stout, strange, but not terrible. Definitely not worth the $10/6er in my area though.

bluemooner (603) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Pours a dark brown color with a thin, tan head which fades very quickly. Body is very thin. Aroma of chocolate and roasty malts, coffee, and slightly sour. Taste is very much the same but with hints of nuts and continuing sour taste. Not a great stout.

Tripplebrew (775) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Pours a dark coal brown/black with just a thin layer of tan colored head. Aroma is very mild smokey flavor with a faint sweetness of vanilla. Flavor is very watered down overall. Flavor is largely of roasted malts and dark CHOCOLATE.
