4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep yet clear mahogany/black body under a slow settling, creamy head of tan. Sweet, chocolate ice cream aroma with the here-and-there of roasted grains and molasses. Mild alcohol shows late. Full bodied. Thick and creamy with an ever so slight tinge of tinfoil. Chocolate syrup and wort flavor with a touch of roast coffee bitterness. Quite a good stout that I am happy to have cellared for six months before drinking.

Tap @ Stout, NYC. Pours a deep opaque black with a nice frothy off-white head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, and roasted malt. Taste is chocolate up front with a malt and milky aftertaste. Very smooth and drinkable throughout. An enjoyable sweet stout, to be sure.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle sampled on 9/16/07: Pours a mostly opaque with dark mahogany edges and a frothy, wispy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet dark chocolate caramel with some lightly roasted notes. Body starts sweet and dark chocolatey with good malted milk flavor and a smooth, full body. Nicely-balanced, enjoyable and unique. A great sweet stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pitch black with no head after a minute. Nose is mostly roasted character. Flavor is sweet with a roasted tone that borders on being "burnt". Feel is heavy on the bubble hitting the tongue and the liquid feel is pretty decently thick also. Drinkable, yes. A fairly smooth and even milk stout.

This beer was solid black, and had thick brown head. It was like drinking alcoholic chocolate milk.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark as night with a brown head. Somewhat malty chocolate flavor and aroma. As the description says it is a very good representation of the style. If you like this also try Sam Adams Cream Stout.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Bottle from Goldtwins. Thanks!
Pours an average nut-brown with an aroma of chocolate and hazelnut. Thin mouthfeel. Tastes of expired chocolate milk... Too much heat in transition? Dunno.

"rich, somewhat sweet taste. nicely roasted. Reallyliked this one. I would say it is in the wrong category- this should be under "sweet stouts", although it is not too sweet. Just sweet enough to balance out the bitterness. real good balance. very smooth and not too heavy. everything is just right here."
