UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (500ml) - shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc at tupalevís domicile - provided by blankboy. Poured a nice, motor oily ruby-black with an average light-brown diminishing head. Aromas of bitter chocolate, minerals, table cream, coffee - overtones of turned sod and leaves, not sweet at all to my nose. Taste was very like the aroma, overall bitter, but not really strong-hop bitter. A satisfying creamy mouthfeel, with a dark roasty bitter linger. Nicely complex ... a little harsh and nowhere near full-bodied enough, but I liked it and would try it again.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Bottle: Dark brown, nearly opaque with a frothy lasting tan head, poured creamy just like the name says. Aromas were roasted coffe, chocoloate, and a heavy nuttiness. Flavor was dark chocolate, coffee, and again quite nutty. Velvety smooth mouthfeel, but with no coating.

Very nice dark, almost black, sweet stout! The first thing that went through my mind when I tasted it was "...if molasses became beer". The taste is quite reminiscent of molasses, much more than the dark chocolate I expected. The palate is heavy, a bit sweet and syrupy but not cloying. The hoppy bite at the end is a nice finish and was also something I didnít expect! There is enough of an alcohol bite to create a warming effect for a while after finishing a bottle! The only drawback to me was the almost non-existent head, but thatís OK too. Overall, I like this...itís different from most other cream stouts Iíve tried. I will definitely buy it again, when I can find it!
