mansquito (3105) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Nearly black body and a tan creamy looking head. Roasted malts and coffee make up most of the aroma. Chocolate flavor is really the most prominent. Not as bittersweet as some other stouts... more on the just sweet side of things. Creamy mouth feel, making it pleasant in really any weather. Really roasty and full of chocolate shop flavors... toffee and caramel included.

Dark brown with creamy tan head. Roasted caramel sweet flavor. Some hops and tinge of toffee, but on the watery side.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled on draft at the Monroeville PA location this beer poured a black color with a large creamy brown head. The aroma is lightly roasty but otherwise insubstantial. The flavor is moderately roasty, lightly smoky and has a light floral hop presence. Wholly forgettable.

Aurelius (3903) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Clear, black-brown. Tart, choco coffee. Underbittered and watery. No had. Clingy, sweet coffee finish. Somewhere near Pittsburgh.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 29, 2005
On draft at the brewpub (part of my Providence bar crawl). Poured black with generous white head. Caramel and coffee a bit - some roasted flavours. Very light bodied. So-so.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2005
I drank this on tap at the home court, just off Harvard Yard. What a great experience! Nice, creamy head, robust full flavor with a light hop finish. I had to linger for a second pint.

MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - APR 23, 2005
Hand pulled keg at the brewery: Poured dark brown with ruby highlights. Medium tan head. Flat. Mild Spanish olive aroma. Flavor is light chocolate, olives, and light roasted malt. Not very impressive.

ClarkVV (3856) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2005
On draught at the Framingham, MA location, Feb 2005 as the "Cream Stout" But Shaneís review almost exactly describes the beer I drank, so this must be the same. Dark brown pour with notes of black chocolate syrup and even some dark auburn tinges on the edges. Thick and heavily transluscent, highly unfiltered. Creamy beige head with a milk chocolate and light roast aroma. As it begins, there is first a note of light coffee and licorice, but then the milk chocolate comes forth, and mixed with a medium, cream and water body, it creates a wonderfully drinkable and refreshing beer. Low alcohol on this, under 5% as I recall. Wonderful session stout here, with just a hint of roast and coffee for added complexity.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Draft at Wayne, PA location. Deep brown/black pour with medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, chocoff, some licorice. Tastes firm on the palate, with big malt, chocoff, and some molasses in the finish. Solid.

shadey (1849) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2005
Solid black pour with red highlights only at the very end. Rich creamy head. Very nice sweet chocolate aroma, with only slight coffee or roast smells. Flavor was sweet lactose with a very nice body. Solid sweet stout.
