Big nose of roasted chocolate. Dark black with lasting layer of tan head. Big dry chocolate hits first then as the bitter reaches its max the cream slide through to fill out this beer. Lasting cream after the sip. Smooth expressive and delicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Jason’s, courtesy of Jason. Thanks man! Pour is deep brown, almost black with a small tan head and good lacing. Cocoa, vanilla, some toffee, caramel, light coffee and bready malty aroma. Taste is brown sugar, twangy malty, vanilla, light cocoa, roasty, bready, caramel, and husky with a semi-sweet finish. Meidium body with light carbonation. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Milk chocolate, caramel, roast, black licorice and dark fruit in the aroma. Complex, but the chocolate comes off a bit fake. Very pretty dark brown, slightly see through with a tiny ring of tan foam. The taste is more roasty than I expected with some dark chocolate and caramel. Not overly sweet, tastes bigger than the 7.2% ABV would suggest. The palate is a little thin and the carbonation is a little high. Good, not great. The artificial quality in the taste and the thinness of the palate knock it down a few levels for me.

Vanilla and metal on the nose. Light coloured. Bit fizzy. Thin. Sweet. Rusty. Don’t like it near as much as some.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. This was quite nice, excellent all around. My friend who shared the bottle agreed.

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

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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
