Pours a deep dark brown with no head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and molasses. Caramel, roasted malt flavor with chocolate. Very well done and very enjoyable.

Served on nitro at the Lancaster location, and named "Nitro Sweet Stout." Pours a dark brown color with a large head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, sweet malts and coconut. The taste is chocolate, light smoke and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

eaglefan538 (2883) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Served on cask. Poured a dark brown to black color with a nice tan head that sustained itself quite well and gave good lacing. The aroma was mostly of coffee and a little bit of chocolate. A little bit of licorice was present. The flavor was much of the same with a bitter finish (sweet stout?) and some bubble gum. The mouthfeel was somewhat thin for the style. Not bad, not great.

On cask in Newark. I was told by the barmaid that they split this batch and added lactose to half (milk stout), and left half w/o leaving the Sweet Stout. Not very sweet, though. Mostly all coffee from first sniff to last sip. Not bad.
