3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black pour with brown to red hue, pretty dark cocoa colored head a sixteenth of an inch high. Smells like rich chocolate and coffee. Thin mouthfeel with next to no carbonation. Flavors of maple, caramel, and bourbon maybe? Clean finish with sweet flavors left over. Overall pretty light and kind of sweet, syrupy stout.

Smooth choclatey maltiness. Decent mouth feel. Smooth imperial stout. Not the best but a good choice

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 2/15/13. Pours dark brown-black with a fast to fade light brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, hints of dark fruit, sweet and just a bit spicy. Taste is nice; creamy, smooth, brown sugar, chocolate, roast, some coffee. Malt for days with very little bitterness; not many IBUs here. Tastes even more mild than the 7.2% ABV. This I like this. Smooth mouth feel but with a coating sensation. Very little lacing. Well crafted.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a cloudy medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was lots of chocolate, toosie roll caramel mixed with it, and some whipped cream notes too. Flavor was toosie rolls, nice milk chocolate, and mild roast. A bit thin for a stout, but solid offering from Breckenridge.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle pours with a nice dark body that supports a thin mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up some sweet dark fruity esters and earthy malts mixing with milk chocolate. The taste is pretty smooth where your senses are hit by a mix of milk chocolate blunted by some dark roasted malts. It then rolls into more chocolate goodness and a light cream soda sensation. Tasty stuff that delivers just what it claims.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle and served in my Pipeworks snifter: Very deep brown, nearly black with a small frothy beige head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of bittersweet chocolate, roast, marshmallows, leather, char and some walnut and lactic acid. The taste is chocolaty without being overly sweet. Some roast, char, lactic and fruity twang and very light herbal bittering hops. The mouth feel is a bit thin for a cream stout in my opinion, a bit metallic IMO. Well this beer is quite quaffable I am left thinking it could have been so much more.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, some lightly roasted malts, and floral hops. Flavor the same but sort of weird. Average to smooth texture. A decent beer.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Jet black pour, light off white head, brief lacing. Aroma has some hints of licorice and chicory - very nice. Rich, intense flavor with some licorice notes, a hint of vanilla, some unsweetened bittersweet chocolate. Some hints of coffee and marshmallows round it out. Mouthfeel has a nice syrup like essence to it. Well done.
