COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This cream stout is the definition of a "session" beer - low in alcohol, light in body and big in flavor. This ebony colored ale has a heady mix of sweet malt and roasted coffee flavors. The addition of lactose sugar gives this beer a hint of cream flavor.

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2012
4 ounce sample on tap at Rubicon. Light chocolate and roasted nose with some light sweetness present, too. Pretty aromatic. Modestly transparent mahogany body with a medium off-white head. A little light and transparent for my liking. Starts with some light burnt and astringent malt character. More roast and chocolate follow later. Somewhat ashy and metallic. Flavorful, but a touch astringent.

marcus (6349) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 29, 2012
On tap at Rubicon, Sacramento. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and a coffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied treacle flavor with a coffee finish. Pretty tasty for a low ABV beer.

J_man (693) - Tustin, California, USA - MAR 18, 2010
On tap at the Sierra Nevada taproom. This beer reminded me very much of a schwarzbier style lager. Black as night, but light as a feather. The description on the beer menu is very accurate. Good roasty flavor with hints of chocolate. A nice, light, easy drinking stout that would be refreshing on a hot day (or any day). Definitely not what you want if you’re looking for a traditional, heavy, thick stout.
