3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Head dies down rather quickly and leaves a faint amount of lacings. Chocolate makes up the nose, but when a good foam is roused, there is some hop aroma. That fades back to chocolate when the foam disappears. Odd that this is called a stout without chocolate or roasted malts for ingredients. Flavor is definitely caramel without a burnt kick. Malty sweet but not cloying. Chocolate blends well with the caramel malts. Grasping at the dark fruit in the finish but not much of that there. Very good beer for dessert.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark pitch black. Nose is chocolate and malty but not overwhelmingly so. Taste is full of flavor, sweet but not frightfully so with
notes of chocolate and figs. Finish is also sweet, dry and short. All in all nice sweet stout with the alcohol well hidden. Dessert in a bottle. Quaff Score 8 / 10 ( Not for hopheads or lager lovers )

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It has a dark body and a short tan head and lacing. The aroma is somewhat faint with a fair mix of coffee and chocolate malt. The flavor is mostly coffee, with a bit of chocolate in the background, some malt in the aftertaste, and a silky body.

Pours a very dark black color with no head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with a little roasted malt. Very sweet taste throughout and very creamy. Finish is kind of dry too. A good sweet chocolatey cream stout but nothing special.
