Very dark brown head. Tan head. Aroma is chocolate and lots of roasted malt. Flavor has lots of lactose, roasted malt, nuts and some chocolate.

Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing froth of dark tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate and a touch of earthy hops and some fusels. Body starts thinner, effervescent and semi-tart with a thinner slightly lingering roasty finish. Iím guessing this is in the early stages of an infection as well as most of their other stuff.

Thanks to Bob for the bottle! Poured medium-deep brown with a thick cap of tan head. The aroma picked up sweet, milky chocolates and vanilla with a decidedly cake and brownie feel to it.. sweet and succulent. The flavor found semi-sweet chocolate and black patent maltage at the core.. sharp earthy and bitter coffee notes surrounded.. rather ugly malts and the aforementioned bitterness on the finish. Well-carbonated on the palate, which probably contributed to the sharpness.. beyond that, it had a smooth enough feel. This started out good and ended up meh.

Courtesy of Degarth. Pours dark dark brown with tan head. The aroma is a bit on the mild side with sweet and roasty malts, mild licorice and a bit of burn malts. The taste is all roasty maltiness mixed with mild malts sweetness. Those notes are balanced by sourness and malt astringency and not much else.

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.

12-oz. Thanks, Dodd! This is a very drinkable little stout. Pours black with a towering, surging, foamy tan head. Plenty of stringy lace showing. Nice-enough cola and liquorice nose. Rich creamy body. Plenty of sharp, stingingly lively carb. Chocolate, charcoal, liquorice on the mid-palate. Mild sweet finish. Not bad. Not much personality, but not too shabby.

drowland (5981) - 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.

BVery (5969) - 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.

Received 12-oz sample bottle to try from distributor. Another nice looking ACL printed bottle. Pours an opaque very dark brown brew with a creamy thick off white head. Nice lacing on the disolve. Aroma has character of dark chocolate, coffee, and some spicey herbs. Taste is smooth, tasted/burnt malt, some coffee and spice. Finish is a little metalic and thin. The "Cream" Stout may come from the creamy head, the finish is a little thin to most other sweet stouts Iíve tried.
