4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
While they call it a ’cream stout,’ chocolate cream stout would be more appropriate. This is hands down the best "chocolate beer" I’ve ever had. Not cloying and overwhelmingly sweet like Young’s can be. Smells and tastes very clearly of chocolate, but as that haze clears you’re left with a solid dark malty stout. Clearly has lactose in it, as the mouthfeel is very creamy; almost like a nitro charged brew. Dark, deep brown with a robust cream-colored head. Really, I can’t say enough about this brew.

Deep reddish amber color out of the tap with a foamy beige head. Big chocolaty nose of brownies and Coco Puffs. Tootsie rolls, hazelnut liqueur, brownies with nuts in them, with some fruit and artificial chocolate in the finish. Interesting chocolate beer.

This was awesome. Smelled like brownie batter and milk chocolate. Some dark chocolate notes as well. Similar flavors. Really good.

Back Log. On Draft. Thin bodied brew with a strong chocolate and coacoa presence. The finish was a bit much on the sweet end, but with a splash of vanilla. However not a bad brew. The smell was nice and rich.

On tap at the Blue Canoe. how in the world a bar in Tupelo, MS got this I have no idea, but it was nice on this cold pre-winter eve on the patio. I think this oughta be re-named the Tootsie Roll beer, because they NAILED that flavor. Decent, very thin for what I wanted it to be though, and a bit one note with the fakey chocolate. Still, I enjoyed it.

Sampled at Raleigh Rare and Vintage 2013. Clear bright brown pour with faint tan head. Very nutty. toffee, cocoa, sweet vanilla - not tootsie roll. Struck me as ’authentic’ cocoa as opposed to fake syrup additive. Semi bittersweet finish. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit.

Cream ale? I don’t remember it having any cream ale qualities. Just a shit load of chocolate aromas and flavors. A real chocolate bomb. Ok at first then overpowering.
