COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Sweet Stout is a creamy, full bodied stout with a subtle chocolate and coffee flavors along with a well balanced soft roastiness. The Sweet Stout would compliment a nice hearty dinner or as an end to a quiet evening.

presario (4708) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
Sample tray. Dirty sticky lacing looks like caramelized sugar. Very dark brown beer. Rich sweet coffee and cream nose. Body and flavour are thinner and not as sweet as the aroma promised. Still good coffee flavours with notes of chocolate.

DuffMan (7029) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2008
Pours a black-brown with a robust brown head, leaving behind some early lace. Bitter chocolate, dark roast, hint of prune in the nose. Lively carbonation early, seems to play itself out to become a more creamy mouthfeel later. Chocolate liqeur, coffee roast, hint of greenstick hoppiness. Quite rich, and very tasty.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade with Andrť. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and tan ring. Aroma of toasted dark malt, some flowery hops, a touch of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is medium to full bodied, light carbonation with flavors of toasted dark malt, coffee, some sweet chocolate and light marshmallow sugar. Finish has a touch of coffee and a strong Nestlť bittersweet chocolate that lingers around after the finish.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Heavily carbonated dark brown body with faint white head. Sweet chocolate aroma with a hint of coffee biterness. Strong roasted coffee taste that leaves little room for other flavors.

after4ever (6251) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2008
12-oz. Pours jet black; even the bottle stream is inky black. Thick, creamy, surging dark tan head. Piles of rocky peaks and sticky lace rings--no shortage of head rentention, either. Very luxurious. Nose is chocolate, a bit too sweet, maybe. Dust and CO2 there as well. Nice medium body, a bit overcarbonated. Sweet chocolate and a bit of roast on the mid-palate. Long sweetish finish. A little too rich and sugary pretty much anywhere you can be too rich and sugary. And coming from me, thatís going some.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2008
Thank you Tom/After4ever for this one! Itís black/brown with a nice, huge head. The aroma isnít very strong, but it has a slightly sour roasted malt note. The flavour has notes of roasted, slightly burned malt, a bit of licorice and a nice bitterness. I would like some more body between the burnt and the bitter - not that itís bad, itís just not extra ordinary IMO.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Bottle from a trade. Pours very dark.This was a pretty tasty brew with all the nice roasted flavors one might expect from a stout but it was a little thin.

nolankowal (932) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2007
Bottle shared by sliffy. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and light coffee. Flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee. Medium body sour/roasty with a roasty/bitter finish.

CapFlu (4615) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2007
(Bottle) Purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle on October 20, 2007. Iíd never heard of this brewery before Oakes mentioned it during the visit to Bottleworks but the scores on RB and positive remarks has me hoping weíll see more of Laughing Dog in the future. This beer had a solid cocoa base with a roasted-cold-coffee-sitting-on-the-element-for-too Very thick and malty, this should be the pride of Idaho. Yummy!

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2007
Pours dark brown, ends up black in the glass. Light brown thick head. Rich chocolate nose with stinging roast more akin to a rich foreign stout like Angkor or Malaysian FES than to a sweet stout. Stingy rich roast character, yet it is fairly low in hop bitterness. Finishes with a dark chocolate character and a hint of almonds.
