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.

Oakes (11798) - 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.

Maria (9963) - 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.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Pours onyx with 1-finger brown head. Aroma of dark roasty malt, chocoff, molasses. Tastes roasty dark malty, with chocoff, slight cherry, and slight rauchy brown sugary notes. Nice complexity.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle shared by boboski: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a thin, spotty-lacing tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet dark caramel and chocolate malts. Body starts with some dark caramel and a touch of raisins and light tartness toward a thinner, bittersweet dark chocolate finish. A decent stout, but could use a little more sweetness.

DuffMan (6162) - 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.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Bottle: Nearly pitch black, very little light gets through this one, large sudsy light brown head, spotty lacing. † Nose of coffee grounds, dark chocolate, cocoa, and a lot of pasture. † Has a feed pellet twang to it. † Spritzy sour coffee like start, malts are quite roasty, soft hop bitterness, not terribly sweet. † Body and mouthfeel are average. † Somewhat of an astringent twang on the finish. † Not as rich or chocolatey as other examples, specifically Loast Coast 8 ball. † Decent, but needs to be fuller, silkier, and lose the pasture aroma.

after4ever (5929) - 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.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Draft 10 oz at the brewpub. This place is 6 for 6! Black of course with an average stouty head. Sweet roasty aroma. Sweet and sugary with a bit of corree, bit of choclatey goodness. bit chalky. This place just doesnít miss it. (#2906, 5/17/2007)

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle: Pours a dark rich black color, a full retentive dark tan/brown head with plenty of lacing. The nose is very roasty with a light astringent coffee note and a bitter nutty component thatís a lot like earthy yeast. The flavor is creamy and pronounced with a light hop bitterness and a moderate roast astringency. The finish is tangy, a bit much carbonation than I like in a stout but pretty good. Full body, complete roast profile. Nice.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of an extra from riversideAK. Pours a very dark near opaque blackish brown, a big dark brown head that cakes, stays moderate sized, laces ok. Aromas are some sweet lactose, a touch of sweeter chocolate, roasted malts and a bit of coffee provide some roasty bitterness. Very dark chocolate in my book, with a sweeter edge like you find in mass produced dark chocolate candy (Not the 80% Cacao quality stuff) Initial is light bodied with an almost watery body for the style, roasty malts mix with chocolate and coffee, but smaller, decent intensity. There is almost a twang to the beer, underbodied and lacking the creamy body or sweetness I was really thinking Iíd get. Ok, but not a sweet stout Iíd revisit.
