COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Number Too - This beer is made with milk sugar (lactose) which gives this beer a nice creamy mouth feel which mingles with hints of chocolate and roasty flavors.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Pours a dark black with a nice tan head. Smells of roasted malts waft from the glass. Has a dark roasted malt flavor. Does not have the typical cream mouthfeel Im accustomed to when drinking a cream stout. Overall is a solid beer.

Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with taste of a well hidden chocolate. Some coffee notes.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - FEB 5, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 This is the highest rated of the new DH releases, but I rank it third. The aroma is just average, and theres not much too special about the appearance. The flavor is good, nice and smooth, but lacks the "creaminess" that Id expect from a stout called a "Cream" Stout. The taste just kind of felt average and maybe slightly bland (only when compared to other beers of its kind) Left Hands Milk Stout is a much better example of how to make a creamy stout. This one is good, lets not kid ourselves (Im being way to hard on it, because it really is tasty as hell) , but Id go with One or Tres myself.

decaturstevo (5407) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2008
At S/choc pre release tasting. Thin looking brown pour with tan head. Very pleasant roasted malt chocolate aroma. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side with good chocolate that tries to fade to coffee but goes a bit sour instead. Thin palate but carbonation is good. Solid just a hint on the thin side but a very nice offering.

Aesopsbeer (3) - Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2008 does not count
Pours extremely dark with almost no head or carbonation. Malty almost sweet scent with hints of chocolate and kind of a roasted scent. Good malt flavor with a very smooth feel which lingers in a chocolate flavor.

Pours very dark with no head and no carbonation. The alcohol is well hidden which is good. The other flavors come out in the mouthfeel. This beer coats your palate and hints of smokiness come out in the aftertaste. Swirling this beer creates no lacing, this beer is straight blackness. This is my favorite beer so far.

Bottle at home - club tasting. Black - brown head. Licorice, chokolate, sweetness, soft body, light smoke, burned, peppermint, roasted. Very smooth.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2008
This was black in color and poured practically no head at all and what did emerge quickly faded away. Scents of smoke, coffee, milk chocolate and sweet caramel. The palate was quite smooth fading to a dry/bitter hop-driven finish. It starts off big but fades as the finish doesnt quite deliver.

Dorwart (2431) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2008
No head at all from a vigorous pour. No carbonation. Sweet and rich aroma. Milk chocolate, prunes, dark roasted grains and lots of sweet caramel. Quite the enticing aroma. Thick, syrupy and black body. Big coffee flavor. Very strong. Quite unexpected since it was not noted in the aroma. Lots of roasted grains, bitter dark chocolate and a bit of smoked venison. Palate is a little thinner than expected. Alcohol is hidden very well. Finishes roasty and dry. A pretty good stout but a little bit lifeless.

12 oz bottle, trade extra from Stine. This pours completely black in color with a small brown head. Aroma is nice and roasty, with chocolate, caramel and earth. Taste is also roasty, with dry chocolate, caramel. Body is medium to full with caramel and light lactose sweetness. Hints of chalk, earth, and yeast. Finishes with roasty and a light hop bitterness. Dark Horse did a good job with these stouts, only minor complaint was that they could have been just a bit more carbonated. Thanks again Eben.
