COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Status uncertain. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
Fuggles and Challenger hops plus a blend of four local barley malts create an aromatic, strong, dark chocolate cream stout with a satisfying bittersweet aftertaste.

A Mes rate: I really like this style. As far as high quality stouts go however, this is not one of them. I’m not going to bother too much with the description. It does everything a stout does. Roasted coffee, chocolate, liquorice and usual stout behaviour. Its just too sticky even a long time after you have swallowed.

Oh my the sweetness when I smell this elixir, but it falls flat when I taste it. Love the aftertaste and the beer itself can hold its own but totally not what I wanted or expected.

In the aroma I detect the presence of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, and a small amount of hops. The appearance is dark brown with an average head. The flavor is coffee and roasted malt with medium bitterness from the hops. The palate is about average for a stout. Bitter-Sweet aftertaste.

unlike the regular porter, the cream stout has a darker, richer taste to it. the sweetness is more subtle but still present. the texture is still thin and watery. Still VERY enjoyable

very faint chocoloate aroma, light head. Has flavors of chocolate and bread that is very deep tasting. not an overly strong or bitter beer but very drinkable.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - SEP 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Very interasting and pretty complex stout, a bit smoky, roasted bitterness, sharp, dark chocolate, espresso, certenly creamy and smooth, very good beer.

Bottle. Dark color, okay head. Nice, fairly sweet, not too rich, slight chocolate taste. Nothing stands out. Good stout.

Has an aroma of coffee and pours a rich black with a tan head. A flavor of roasted coffee comes through and a finishes with a creaminess.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Smells of alcohol barley and coffee. Looks pitch black with a small tan head. Tastes creamy and coffee like with a pronounced barley taste to it that becomes the main part in the aftertaste. A nice cream stout that does a body good!

Sampler from bottle at <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/orland-par Orland Parh, First test of one of these little flasky bottles. I’d agree, it’s more of a sweet stout than a creamy one: still has a big roasty malt flavor and more than a hint of alcohol. Then some slight creaminess comes out in the wash. In this case, the beer lives up to the unusual packaging.
