Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottled October 3rd 2013 and poured March 18th 2014. Into a shaker pint, unfortunately. $2.19 for a single bottle. Appearance: Black with a head that fizzes away quickly and loudly -- sounds like pop. All that remains is what looks like black water with only a few carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom. Smell: Hm. Nice. Roasty for sure, but sweetness that creates a bit of a caramel, milk chocolate, and vanilla character. A sweet smelling roast is the primary smell, with the other notes being a bit underlied. Taste/feel: Definitely a solid beer. Doesnít strike me as being too much different than One Oatmeal stout, just that this one has a bit more "oomph", and a less mouthfeel.. they really are both quite similar beers. The carbonation is pretty mild, but prickly, on this beer, and the texture is a bit thin. The flavor is unlike the smell, as itís just a lot of coffee flavored roastiness, with a subtle vanilla sweetness. As it warms, more sweetness comes through along with... dark fruits? It seems out of place in a cream stout. I do like that it adds another dimension, but itís not what I look for in the style. A very good cream stout, but not the best Iíve had. It looks ugly in the glass, but it has a pleasing aroma, and a pretty good flavor. The mouthfeel is a bit of a bummer, but Too remains enjoyable regardless. I prefer One to Too just because it is a bit more drinkable, with a nicer feel on it. Quick Edit: I recommend getting the sediment in the bottle, as it thickens up the brew considerably and really pushes it over the top. After doing that, it turned a very good beer into a great one. You gotta get that all in the bottle.

Pours pitch black with a dark brown head Aroma of molasses, toast, and leather. Taste is grainy, toasty and light metallic, with a dry finish.

NikkTwist (1387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2014
Draft at Khyber Pass. Dark chocolate mocha with milk. Poured an opaque black with a large khaki ring. Body feels thinner than what I would expect for a cream stout. Bakerís chocolate. Pizzelles. Charcoal smoke. Burnt marshmallows. Greek coffee. Vanilla bean. Nice dark flavors though the milk sugars donít add the creaminess that was expected. Disappointed.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 9, 2014
04-APR-2014, bottle @summer house - Marielyst. Dense Black body with lasting, lacing, creamy Brown head. Aroma of berries, roast, and a touch of smoke. Taste is much more tar, roast and smoke, less berry. Very dense and creamy with soft carbonation.

bpar73 (344) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle. Black pour with a thin reddish tan head that dissipates quickly. Dark roasted malts, chocolate and a hint of dark fruit in the aroma and taste. Nice sweet stout.

Vells (542) - LATVIA - MAR 28, 2014
Quite intense roasted maltiness for sweet stout, dark choco character, bit coffee with notes of vanilla. Very decent, but quite boring.. oh and yes.. it is quite creamy and smooth

FatPhil (8564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 25, 2014
Tap (ALEhouse, Riga) (6+:4:7-:4:13=3.4)
Had this after the super-smooth tres blueberries, that may influence the score. Nice rich roast in the aroma, but not climbing out of the glass and hugging me. Basically black, tan keggy head. Massive in the mouth. Rich roast and burnt retronasasls, some odd cherry stone aspects. Sticky fullness, in the palate, burnt acidity, carbonation relatively soft. Has a potency to it, but dowesnít say boozy. And itís massively burnt, leaving a dry mouth, but without the biting astringency you sometimes get. Finish is dry and a little hollow, but that cavity later resonates with nice dry old bitter hops, that I like. Good, but not great strong stout. Not getting the horrible sweetness of some milk stouts. (not a fan, can you tell?)

Melnis (94) - LATVIA - MAR 21, 2014
Vot öis jau man patīk, bet nu alus kā ēdiens. Biezs, tumīgs, arī roasted, daudz dedzinātā un kopumā labs balanss. Pats labakais- alkohola izjūta, nav pa grādīgu, nav pa pliekanu. Par sweet stout gan nenosauktu.

StoutHead (483) - DENMARK - MAR 19, 2014
On tap. Pours black-ish with a small beige head that doesn't lace. Roasty aroma. Taste is like a stout - very roasted malty, this one a bit hoppy too, coffee, lactose and licorice as well. Smooth and sweet. Full body. Low carbonation. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
