From 22oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a black color with a thick and frothy tan head. Nose is huge chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, slight vanilla. Taste is heavy bodied, mostly sweet with touches of bitterness. Super silky mouthfeel. Awesome chocolate beer

The beer is a little watery for a cream stout, which makes it very easy to drink. I hoped a little more creamy/milky body. The taste is a perfect balance of biter chocolate, sweetness and coffee. So good.

Bottle, 12oz. A dark, dark brown beer topped by some dark beige bubbles. The aroma is chocolatey and roasted with a soft cofffee touch and hints of burnt malts. It’s full-bodied, oily and very softly carbonated. Semi-dry, but there’s a sweet flavor to it. Chocolate, roasted malts and black coffee in the flavor. Lasting finish. A bit simple this one, lacking on complexity, but it’s a decent beer indeed. Perhaps going much better with a couple of scoops of quality ice cream. 150611

Pours dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and hint of lactose. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long roasted, milk chocolate, coffee and fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

glennmastrange (2433) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of dark bread and dark chocolate, light toasted orange peel and dough for the hops and yeast, with hints of licorice and cola. Head is small, wispy, light tan with good lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly better. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy to syrupy, and has a lively carbonation with a lightly to moderately alcoholic. Maybe a touch too sweet, but mostly an easy sipping Sweet Stout.

superspak (3418) - Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 3/19/2015. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, toast, dark bread, vanilla, cream, light nuttiness, light herbal, and toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and chocolate notes; with good strength. Taste of big milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, toast, dark bread, vanilla, cream, light nuttiness, light herbal, and toasted earthiness. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, toast, dark bread, vanilla, cream, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and chocolate flavors; with a good roasted bitter/sweet balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice imperial cream stout style. All around great robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and chocolate flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours dark with a tan head. Toasty cocoa aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste the chocolate, turns a bit bittersweet on the swallow, and lingers into the aftertaste, very nice. Does have a bit of a creamy feel to it. One of the better chocolate stouts I have tried. Will have again.
