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.

Really excellent Sweet Stout, made in Lucan, Minnesota, Pop. 220. Funny how a small town can top them all.

Pours dark like worn oil. Small tan head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Roasted malt, chocolate flavor with a little bitterness to it. All in all a damn nice brew.

Have had both on tap (at Brau Brothers and at Brauhaus in Lucan), but am writing this from bottle I am currently drinking. Subtle but nice aroma, chocolate and almost molasses sweetness. For a stout this beer could have a thicker texture, but one of the reasons I like this stout is it is REALLY easy to drink, especially on tap.

12 oz bottle from the Four Firkins. Black pour, no light coming through. Big, fluffy tan head that leaves great lacing. Aroma is roasted chocolate, almost a tad smokey. Creamy mouthfeel with a milk chocolate flavor. Smooth finish that leaves the milk chocolate on your tongue.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Tasted 9/19/08. 12oz bottle. Pitch opaque with a finger width of khaki head. Heady aromas of toast and dark chocolate. Medium bodied with smooth character. Big cookie malt and chocolate flavors. Touch nutty. Mild, slight coffee flavor and acidity. Peanutbutter cookies with chocolate chips. Good roasted malts. Creamy with mild effervescence. I enjoyed this one. I guess I’m against the grain.

Bottle: Beautiful pour is dark brown with a mountain of creamy tan head. Gobs of sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet with chocolate and rich with roastiness. Nice. Tastes deep in roastiness with a lighter milk chocolate presence. Lingering roasty notes in the tail. A bit light in the body, but overall enjoyable.

Parting gift from RBSG 2007 - Black, thin tan creamy head. Nose held soft notes of roasted coffee and cream, with underlying charred chocoalte and toffee brittle tones. Well rounded roasted milk chocolate, coffee and cream flavors throughout, and just a touch of hops in the finish. Light to medium bodied and smooth, drying, bittersweet finish. Not bad at all for sessions. Thanks Joe?

UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 Nice creamy head at poor. Aroma is nice! Creamy vanilla coffee. Head disapates after about a minute to leave a very nice veneer of foam over the top of the beer. Color is black, way black. Sweet malt taste, followed by roasted coffee. Weird acid tang for just a second before the bitterness touches you slightly. Leaves you with a slightly dry mouth. Very good cream stout. For 4.95 a sixer i had to give it a try. I think Degarth got a bad batch. This isn’t the best, but it ain’t to damn bad either. Went good with a peanut butter sandwich.

This is a great stout, but the Moojoos that replaced this brew is superior.

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.
