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.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2004
Hand pull at Derby Beer Festival. Glossy black, mocha head. Black coffee whiff, massive coffee ’n chocolate taste; bitter cocoa, a liquorice twist, burnished rather than roasted, bitter in all the good ways. Not sure about the sweetness, but this is an excellent stout.

imdownthepub (10467) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2004
Cask Conditioned at Hook Norton Beer Festival 04. Dark black brown no head. This is where the Festival hit rock bottom, the beer had completely gone over, acidic tart and disgusting and yet continued to be sold in the name of charity. Hopefully I can re rate this in futue.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Pours an ebony color with a small light tan head that leaves no lacing. Amazing aroma with a very intense chocolate sweetness, almost like chocolate ice cream, also a faint hint of coffee. Taste starts very rich and chocolaty, with a very smooth mouthfeel, and ends rather bitter with a good roastyness that carries through into the aftertaste. I really like this brewery and their flask style bottles.

Black. No head. Very strong aroma of coffee and molasses. Sweet start with a little sourness in the finish. Slightly dusty. Not as creamy as expected.

AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2004
Comes in very cool bottle, that looks like those old medicine bottles you see in westerns! Pours black with a nice dark brown head. Very roasted aroma with lots of chocolate and coffe. Creamy roasted taste with a coffee like bitterness. Dry finish with more smoke! I like it, reminds me some of Thisted Limfjords porter

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2004
Black-brown stout, foffee coloured lasting, creamy head. Chocolate aroma with traces of licourice. Somewhat salty flavour with more chocolate, coffee, smoke and some underlying sourness. Sweet and roasted malts. Sweet but bitter finish with traces of liqourice (again). Creamy palate. Overall very good - perhaps a bit too bitter though considering the name is cream stout.

Got this one from the Beer Seller in Williamsburg, VA. For starters, I don’t like green or greenish-yellow bottles, but that’s the only negative I have about this one. Pours blacker than Yaphet Kotto, with a nice light brown head and superb lacing. The aroma is pure heaven....coffee, molasses, chocolate, cabernet, and some smoky peaty olfactory sensations. The taste is very smoky, with a lot of malt, coffee, dark chocolate, peat, and scotch. The finish is roasty, smoky, creamy, with a slight dry finish (even though this is categorized as a sweet stout, I consider it more a dry stout based upon the flavor profile). This one reminds me a lot of Alaskan smoked porter, which is one of my favorite dark beers of all time. This is one of the better stouts I’ve ever had.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 Bottle. Quiet sweet and a little bit cloying, Oaty, cereally malt, couple with sweet caramel and chocolate, some lactic acidity, ashy finish, pretty tasty, but sweet.

maltdog (618) - Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Pours darkest brown and completely opaque. A decent-sized mocha head leaves spotty lacing. Heavenly nose of oven-fresh chocolate fudge brownies, cappucino, and hazelnut. Maybe the barest sharp green prick of hop... or maybe not. Fleeting flavor is initially coffee and cola, then immediately bittersweet roasted barley/espresso. Pleasant but mild bitter aftertaste of tannic burnt grain and faint hop. Minimally carbonated, with a creamy palate, almost frothy-feeling at times. Seems to me that as it warms, the aroma ebbs as the bittersweet flavor strengthens. Very nice, though I wish the flavor was more complex and lingering.

Poured a deep dark brown with a medium sized dark tan head. Nice burnt chocolate malt aroma. Taste is of roasted chocolate malt and coffee, with some nice bitterness. not overly creamy, but has a fairly full-bodied mouthfeel. A very solid stout.
