4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep dark chocolate brown with dark mahogany highlights. Tan head with good retention and lacing.
Coffee, chocolate, sweet cream (malted milk), nut.
Soft chocolate and coffee notes that are slightly bitter give way to a creamy mouth feel with burnt malt nutty flavors. This is followed by a sharp sting from carbonation leading to bitter herbal notes keeping the mouth lively. The mouth feel is wonderful. This a delicious cream stout with a nice sweetness balanced out by bitter notes making it more savory than sweet - excellent.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great stout has hoppy chocolate and vanilla notes, creamy and smooth finish. Good pour, solid tan head, smells a bit of coffee and leather with a hint of cashew. Aftertaste as good as initial taste, smooth from start to finish. One of my favorites.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby to brown colour, almost black with thick beige head. Malty aroma, toasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, smoke, all are very delicate smells, barely noticeable. Strong coffee flavor, bitter chocolate hints. Medium body, most on the weak side. Great beer, but I expected more of it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours deep mahogany red. One finger tan head, Some lacing and retention. Aroma roasted barley and vanilla. Taste is mainly sweet, bitterness seem to come from the dark roast rather than the hops. Medium body, moderate carbonation, mouth feel is a little thin. Tasting notes, light hints of both chocolate and coffee. Vanilla, lactose and grass. Pretty much textbook cream stout.

Pours a black from a bottle, aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavor similar, with that sour milk flavor of a milk stout. Thin as a milk stout always is. Meh.

Bittersweet chocolate with some coffee aroma in the background. Not to heavy or intense, it’s very smooth for a stout. Very drinkable.
