3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours blank with a surprisingly thin tan head that fades quickly. The aroma jumps out of the glass at you! Chocolate, coffee, prunes and even some hops. Thick and creamy with a slightly smoky with a hoppy finish. Except for the funky, astringent aftertaste, it’s pretty good.

This is a darn good stout that is underrated in my opinion. It really is very creamy as its name suggests and go down luxuriously smooth. Lots of fruitiness to it that is balanced out with esperesso and chocolate flavors. I would recommend this beer

Deep dark brown/black beer. Thin tan head. Smells of raisins, prunes, dates, you know; chocolate, coffee a little bit of smoke. Very nice flavor, besides the slight metallic taste. Very rich espresso flavor, nice and deep taste. Very very nice. Slightly sweet but the bitter coffee flavor is predominant.

Opaque, no head whatsoever. Smoky aroma. Great taste of coffee and chocolate. Perhaps a bit over the top, but extra points for the stylish bottle.

Normal stout appearance, and an oh so creamy aroma. Chocolate malt and cream dominate the nose with a bit of caramel as well. The flavor is also quite smooth and creamy until you find that strong bitterness. Quite a nice balance, as the beer ends with the two sides merged together, hoppy bitterness, and creamy smoothness.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Toffee, dry fruit, slight smoke, and bitersweet chocolate. Good coating mouthfeel. Very nice dry finish with some hop bitterness. Very well done and enjoyable. The only really detracting thing is a slight sourness on the backend, but it is mild. Very nice.

bottle, pours a consistant black with very little carbonation. cardboard aroma with a dry caramel hint.BLAND, watery chocolate and toffe flavors. i don’t know if this is due to a lack of grain bill or or some other feature. this is water with a candy bar in it and a shot of gin. ugh. no mas.

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!
