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.

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. Itís full-bodied, oily and very softly carbonated. Semi-dry, but thereís 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 itís a decent beer indeed. Perhaps going much better with a couple of scoops of quality ice cream. 150611

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