Very rich and creamy. Great color, aroma, and flavor, especially from a bottle. Although the dark, rich flavor was satisfying, the aftertaste was a bit chalky and sometimes made the beer taste waterier.

Bottle. Nose is very roasty and bitter, almost to the point of being like burnt coffee. Taste also has that burnt flavor to it, and it makes it seem more like a porter than an amber. Whatever. Itís drinkable, but not terribly pleasant.

Dark amber body with a thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is a caramel, roast toffee. Taste is smooth, hoppy & clean. Enjoyable.

Pours dark black/brown with thin off white head. Taste is slight roast, little cocoa, caramel sweetness, slight spice, hint of vanilla, nutty. Actually a lot going on here. Smooth medium full finish. Actually pretty nice.

Looks a lot more flavorful than it actually is. Pretty weak flavor really especially considering how dark this beer is; Iím surprised they got it this dark with such little flavor haha. Watery malts with some very subtle notes of chocolate. Bland.

Aroma is a sweet lactose mildly roasted malts. Taste is earthy chocolate, but a little artificial in the taste and no hops to speak of. Palate is thin and disappointing for something billed as creamy.

12 ounce bottle from House of 1000 Brews, New Kensington. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of nutty notes with earthy and caramel notes. The taste is fudge (no kidding), earthy notes, apples, caramel, nuts. Medium bodied. Not bad, but very strange.
