Bottle. Big beige head on top of a dark brown liquid that looks beautiful. Roasted malts, light and easy to drink, some chocolate, bit of coffee but finish is one dimensional and the after taste is a little off putting.

Draught at The New Old Lompoc 5th Quadrant. From notes. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium body. Flavors fade too quickly. Weak stuff.

Zwicklemania 2011 – New Old Lompoc Brewing
Dark brown in color, creamy tan head. Big Oatmeal and dark malt aroma. Tasty thick dark roasty malty flavors with a hint of smoke. This was smooth and creamy. Yes I am talking about a beer.

Coffee roasted notes with bittersweet chocolate and toffee notes. Dark, almost black with creamy beige head. Bitter coffe and chocolate are delicate but noticeable. Finish trails off. Creamy and silky body that is quite filling. Residual sweetness lingers and softens the charred aspect.

[2966-20100626] Tap. Coffee banana aroma. Black brown body with a long-lasting foamy brown head and thick lacing. Coffee grounds flavour and lots of roasted malt. Medium-full body. All coffee, little dimension in that respect.

2010-06-26. Black body with a nice tan head and lace. 4+ Dusty mildly roasty malt aroma, bit of coffee character as it warms up. 6+ Flavour is surprisingly mild, dilute roast. Sweet dark malt base, dry roasty bitterness in the finish. Palate is remarkably light for a stout. Okay but did not impress me much today. On Tap at the brewpub, Portland.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This cream stout settles its rich, viscous, molasses black body into the glass and is capped by a layer of creamy, light colored chocolate. So smooth-looking it appears nitrogenated. Characterized by a pleasing, roasty and chocolate bouquet with sweet milk and dust notes. Smooth-bodied, with a roasty chocolate oatmeal body. Exceptionally quaffable.

Really dark black. Light tan head. Smells like chocolate. Medium body; mild carbonation. It’s all chocolate until a strong coffee finish. Delicious.
