Coffe colored. Intense smell of chocolate and dark malt. Sweet and round but not much bitterness. Like a christmas beer.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

A deep dark brown color with a thin head. The aroma was that of a deep rich dark malts and chocolate and coffee. The flavors where also deep and rich and this was a great stout. Loved the rich dark malts and the smooth silky taste. This could be used with some ice cream and would be a great beer float. A great cooking beer also. This was a wonderful beer.

Bottle. Medium high but lasting light brown fluffy head. Well its not pitch black but its close to. Coffee aroma, good and simple maybe just a hint of chocoolate. Flavor of coffee, choccolate pretty mild though. Little bitterness, long aftertaste. Pretty good for a beer with such a relatively low alcohol percentage.

Smells earthy and like caramel, very sweet. Pours an opaque black with a small tan head. Taste is sweet chocolate with coffee. Very thick and flavorful. A tasty stout I’d like have again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2007 Bottle. This beer is great! Aroma of chocolates. Flavor is very creamy, chocolates, with a almost milkshake familiarity to it. I have to say it’s very easy to consume and I’ll be looking into this one in the future.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, poured dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavor is nice, like a chocolate milkshake. Body, however, is thin and almost watery. I guess that makes it drinkable, but I was hoping for something with a little more substance. Good beer though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with brown highlights and a relatively small head. Malty chocolate aroma; chocolate milkshake (well, vanilla soft serve w/ chocolate syrup at least) milkshake flavors. Gentle hop bite on the short side of the close, returning to bittersweet chocolate on the long end. Easy drinking save for a somewhat prickly fine carbonation.
Quite drinkable even if not particularly adventurous or challenging.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown and hazy. Aroma of chocolate and almond, and lots of starch. The body is a bit thin. Profile is mainly chocolatey but kind of vague with the thin nuttiness of a mailed-in brown ale. It’s okay, but not nearly full enough for a milk stout.
