zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Bottle - Pours thick black with a very minimal off-white head. Aroma is strong malty chocolate with a touch of coffee. Palate is not as thick as the pour, but silky smooth. Taste is bitter chocolate and roasted coffee. A little bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall a pretty straight-forward cream stout with not much complexity in the taste. Not bad, but not great.

skoisirius (1886) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Pours a dark brownish black with almost no head. Looks flat to the sight, but is far from it. Aroma consists of sweet licorice candy and a small hint of coffee within a malt base. Flavor tends to be very sweet with heavy hints of coffee. There is also a hint of chocolate near the finish, which thens turns straight into coffee. This cream stout is so incredibly smooth to the tongue it’s almost unfathomable! Very enjoyable!

hayden1215 (319) - Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Black in color with a small quickly diminishing head. Aroma is licorice, chocolate with a hint of coffee. Flavor is sweet with notes of coffee, chocolate and raisins. Finish is fairly bitter and creamy smooth. Warms you up, yes!

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Pours to a coal black, with a dark tan head that diminishes fairly quickly, decent acing. Srong malty aroma of chocolate and caramel, with a hint of nuts. Taste was mostly chocolate, and a little watery at first, but alcohol crept in as it warnmed. A nice smooth finish made this a very enjoyable beer.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
A stellar beer. Near-midnight pour with an oily brown topping. Aroma is thick with chocolate and nuts. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste is dark chocolate up front that fades into a roasted malt finish. Good hop bitterness in the end.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Not very interesting. Almost black, but with almost no head. Thin and dead in the mouth. Some coffee, a little malt, but mostly just bitternes and a lng bitter finish.

ElGaucho (2339) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle at Beer on the Pier, Chicago. Strong milk chocolate aroma, but which has the possibility of being dry. At the fest there were multi colored stage lights and the red light wa s the only one that got through when held up to the light. Otherwise, nearly opaque. Thin, light tan head. Not much head or lace. Creamy, milky mouthfeel. Very good. Much better than their English (Organic) Ale. Very solid.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2006
Pours black with large dirty top. Flavours of smoke, hops and whiskey. Very intresting indeed. Also quite sweetish. A bit thin which takes down the palate for me. Aroma had traces of coffee and hops.
