draft into a pint glass from Redbone’s in Somerville... The aroma was chocolate, coffee, and alcohol. The first sip was smoky and smooth. It was so smooth that it led to a couple of involuntary gulps... yummers. The mouth feel was heavy, but the light carbonation and diverse flavors made it extremely drinkable. This was my first beer at redbone’s and my first left hand offering. This was a nice beer experience.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2007 Black appearance, thick lasting brown head. Malts and chocolate in aroma. Sweet flavour, some sourness even, quite watery. Tastes like a sweet Guinness. Quite ok, as long as you don’t drink more than a few in a row, as it might get boring.

Really had high hopes for this, especially after the aroma hinted at a thicker, more milky version of Sam Smith’s Oatmeal Stout. Unfortunately, the flavor was more Guinness Draught with added water. Hints of chocolate and milk, but the water just washed them away quickly. The texture is too thin, as is the carbonation. Overall, a disappointment.

pours dark brown with a creamy tan head with slight carbonation. scents of cream, chocolate, and coffee. medium thickness, and a nice smooth feel. coffee and baker’s chocolate with a touch of cream for smoothness define the flavor. a nice little stout all round.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red/brown translucent body, with a large and persistent head. Excellent lacing. Malty aroma with vanilla, liqourice, sweet chocolate, and dark sugar. Taste was equally sweet and chocolaty, not much roastyness at all, like sweet mocha-coffee. Thick mouthfeel but not syrupy, plus very little carbonation. A nice simple sweet stout.

Bottle. Strong mocha coffee aroma. Dark brown-black with moderate head. Tastes like a mocha coffee with a few extra shots of espresso - creamy chocolate and burnt coffee. Finishes a bit light but overall a great tasting beer.
