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!

Draft at the Jerusalem Tavern. The best stout I have tried! Nice and dark, proper head, coffee and molasses. Try it if you can find it!

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2006
500ml bottle pours black with a short creamy offwhite head. Aromas of light chocolate and coffee hover above the English Pint. Flavor is a nice blend of chocolate, coffee, and a bit of smoke.. a little bit of molasses there as well. Mostly sweet throughout but a little bitter hop presence at the finish. Palate is lighter for a stout and a tad on the watery side. Very drinkable though.

Bottled. It’s dark brown with a mior white head. The aroma is that of burnt hops and chocolate.The flavour consists of a smoky sensation (hops?)and it has strong hints of chocolate. It has a sweet after taste with a minor bitter finish.
