bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2004
Opague. Chocolate, cream, cacao and mocha in the almost fat aroma. Full bodied and bittersweet, like pure chocolate. Creamy and voloptuous. Hints of Christmas pudding. What a great beer!

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Pour was black and oily. A thin dark tan head was pretty attractive. Aroma wasn’t all that intense. Maybe a little too cold. The flavor was a nice bitter coffee and some chocolate. I enjoyed this considerably, but it was bit expensive. I can find stous just as pleasurable for less.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is all black. The medium sized foam is deep brown, and dissolves slowly into a brownish surface. The smell is powerful; it is sweet and full of cocoa, roasted malts and black coffee. The carbon dioxide is very gentle, almost absent but still noticeable with really small bubbles. The mouth feel is very “creamy”, like drinking a mix of milk and cream. The roasted malt gives this beer a flavour that is almost smoky taste. There are distinct notes of cocoa, pumpernickel, coffee liqueur and a good measure of bitter hops. The aftertaste is creamy with an increasing bitterness, which slowly decreases into a soft taste of dark chocolate and coffee. This stout is really… Stout. The smell and taste is potent, but at the same time very elegant and well balanced. The almost overwhelming flavour and the soft carbon dioxide almost invite you to a really slow drinking experience that could last all night. Pleasant in its own way, but in some cases, it might be just too much.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Mmmm. Pours a nearly opaque dark dark brown with a foamy tan head. Slight ruby glow. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty. Definite creamy chocolate flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Nice bottle, and a delicious beer to go with it.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Dark, near black body, with crimson highlights ’round the edges, adorned with a flush, huge toasted tan head, leaving lace. Aroma is bitter roasted espresso beans at first, traces of cocoa and anise, earthy, gritty, ...and not what I’d think of from a "cream" stout. Quite lively and, to this stoutophile, refreshing...I like a stout that a’steaming with dark, viscious, vibrant aromas! Taste:...not bad, very thick, sticks in the mouth, gets smoother as we go. Reminds me of an oatmeal, rather than a cream. Easily tossed back into the gullet, but retains a wicked, dark character that rides through the finish. Actually, I look into rescinding my words as it gets silkier and smoother with each subsequent sip, still brimming with dark, chocolatey, coffeeish flavors. Very nice, even very, VERY nice. There, I said it...Mmmmm, me likey...

the first crazy beer i ever had was a St. Peter’s, my 100th beer has to be one as well, this cream stout is pretty damn good, has a very rich molasses aroma and a smooth malty taste, very good.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Had to force a head out of this one... and it was dark brown and quite thin. The aroma is a musty roasted coffee bean, bourbon, wood and burnt licorice. Very good. Medium bodied, lacking carbonation until a small amount shows up in the swallow, but still not enough to satisfy. Makes up for it in the thick flavors, creamy oak barrel and charred chocolate malts. Very heavy, and a little astringent, with a dry wood and hop quality. Quite unique. This is a bottle which I have seen a million times but have put off purchasing, so it’s nice to find that it’s something drinkable.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2004
Aroma of coffee malts, some fruity notes (cherries), quite roasted. Black coloured with a decent brown, creamy and lasting head. Taste is of licorice, malts (coffee, roasted) sweet and quite bitter. Quite sticky palate. Decent stout. Nic bottle.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 14, 2004
very dark brown colour, little foam, very deep coffeish aroma, licorice and notes of nuts, roasted, sweet and medium-bodied, strong bitterness in a long coffee and chocolatey finish with some notes of alcohol
