Light aromas of bttersweet chocolate and nutty coffee. The beer is a dark coffee color in the glass with zero hear out of the bottle. Still, it leaves a little lacing on the sides of the glass. The debatable point here is palate. The beer is light and somewhat thin, but it leaves a long finish of bitter chocolate. Carbonation is a tight, but a little much. There is flavor in this beer, echoing the aromas, but it is underwhelming. Different from other sweet stouts, and not as good.

Very dark, as it should be. Little to no head. Chocolate aroma is instantly detected. Picked this beer up in Cost Plus in Buford, room temp. Might have tasted better if they had kept it cold. The taste improved as I drunk it. Very good cream stout. I’ll have this again.

This deeply saturated, high viscosity sweet stout is the best in it’s class. Pours a thick black tar with a rich, sweet, sliky texture upfront. What I really like about it is the hopsy character that comes forth on the finish. The hops try to hang on as the nectar goes down creating this complex texture shift from silky smooth to velvet. I can honestly say I have never experienced such a shift in any other brew. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended.

Deep black body with ruby tinges but a poor head - light tan, compact and hardly lasting. Yeast in the aroma also some cigarette butts and liquorice. Smooth medium taste with burnt coffee notes, some milk chocolate and light hops on the finish

This was a great stout, but it could have been SO much better. The aroma was intense, with notes of coffee, chocolate, raisin and figs. The appearance was EXACTLY as a stout should be, which is black as midnight. I held it up to an 100w light and I could barely see some reddish hints at the bottom of the glass. If light don’t shine thru, you know you are on to something good. The mouthfeel was a bit on the watery side, which was a bit of a turnoff. I like my stouts thick and chewy, but this was a bit thin. Flavor was blasts of chocolate, coffee but very smooth and little to no carbonation to it. It went down smooth as silk. IMO, a very good example of a sweet stout. It wasn’t quite on the "cream" side as the name states, but no matter. The Brit’s do this one up nice, so I recommend this to try.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2006 Brown head thinly sits upon a sea of darkness. The smeell of coffee from a french cafe rises into the air. A chocolate sundae rolled in mud washes down with a shot of brandy. splash!
