Very nice aroma of Malt, cream, chocolate, coffee and molasses. Poured a dark black with a nice tan/brown creamy head that slowly receded into a creamy cap. Left very nice lacing on Pint. Flavor was of roasted malt, dark chocolate, cream, touch of molasses, vanilla, coffee and milk chocolate. Excellent flavor! A sweet beer. Has a medium body, creamy and smooth, soft carbonation with a sweet, quick finish that was refreshing and pleasing. A excellent Sweet/Milk Stout!! The only problem I have is I could drink this all day!!! :) Guess I have no problem with it come to think of it... :) If you like Cream, Sweet or Milk Stouts, definitely donít miss this one! Served in a Pint, this one was made in Cincinnati. One of my favorites!

Dark beer does not get any better than this. As stouts go, this one is unique, and in a delicious way! What a pleasant luxury every time I get to enjoy one.

Excellent beer! Where can it be purchased now that my local supplier does not stock it anymore? I simply hate the weak or scented besers that seem to stock the shelves of US outlets for beer these days.

The body was black with a deep, brown head. The palate was soft and creamy...it felt like it was melting in my mouth. There were coffee undertones, with no bite to it at all. One of my favorites!

This is one of the best beers Iíve ever tasted! It was smooth, flavorful, and exciting. It seemed to contain all my favorite flavors; chocolate, hops, coffee, and a bit of cigar. I would highly recommend anyone who likes beer to try this one!

Absolutely the darkest, most opaque beer I have ever encountered... nothing else comes close to this stout... my all-time favorite... please try this out you will not be disappointed... looks like tar in a glass... tannish/orangish head which stays for duration... definite chocolate tonguefeel with strong roasted coffee tones... delightfully bitter aftertaste which balances well with flavor... just carbonated enough... outstanding at slightly cooler than room temp... silky flavor, thick yet not cumbersome... UNIQUE to say the least!! GO GET SOME NOW!!
