Milky creamy, this oneís strength is how smooth it is. Some nice chocolate notes, but they arenít as prominent as in other sweet stouts, that hint of creaminess buries the other flavors a bit. At first I thought I detected a metallic edge to it, but that left after a few sips. This beer wonít bowl you over; but it will make you smile.

Wow this is rich! Like drinking a slightly chilled chocolate milk iced mocha. I would like this more if it were not so syrupy sweet, but it still makes a hearty sweet stout. Finishes soft and bittersweet, with just a bit of roastiness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a black clear body leaving a thick creamy head. The aroma is light, sweet, malted milk, and caramel. The taste is very fresh feeling, it starts syrupy sweet so nice and smooth followed by a milk sweetness with a coffee chocolate essence to round it out. It is balanced by a nice spicy hop effort that really compliments this sweet stout. The beer finishes again milky sweet, this is a session quality stout. I will be drinking this all year around.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark reddish-brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and toffee. Flavor is generally the same with strong coffee and chocolate flavor. For a beer that doesnít have that much alcohol itís a little stronger then expected. A good stout but Iíll drink plenty of others before this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Most coffeeish aroma ever. Flavor was very sweet and bitter coffee. Mouthfeel was best ever... soft and silky. WHAT A JEWL!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured to a drak brown with hints of red, thin tan head and some lacing. Aroma was strongly malt, chocolate and toffee, with coffee smell becoming more evident at mid-glass. Flavor pretty much follwed these same lines, and the finish was primarily the same as I get after finishing my morning coffee.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty run of the mill stout. Pours black with a nutty coffee type flavor. A bit light on the alc% but I guess overall not too bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Black body. Sweet taste at first that fades to more of a coffee taste. Good but for a stout I expect a bit more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Iíve had this beer a million times, but for some reason Iím just now getting around to rating it. From draught: pours red-black with small beige head. The aroma is roasty and sweet with some molasses. The flavor is mildly roasty with a molasses-like sweetness, nuttiness, a little bit of baking chocolate, subtle hops toward the finish, and a sweet slightly woody aftertaste. Something seems to be lacking in the middle, though Iím not sure what, but it doesnít detract too much from the overall quality.
