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.

Dark body with just a bit of ruby around the edges. Small, tan head. Aroma of candy bar chocolate, and malts. Smooth texture. Sweet, chocolate, malts flavor. Pretty good.

Pours a four-fingered light brown head that leaves a nice lace. pour SLOWLY. Totally opaque black color. Nose is roasted coffee. Starts with roasted coffee flavor, mouthfeel is incredible smooth. Finishes with a good stout bitterness. Low carbonation and heavy bodied. $4.45 for a 500ml bottle.

Just a great stout. Coffee and caramel are ver good. The cream makes everything super smooth. This is very good.

I probably just don't like the cream stout, but this beer is very sweet and syrupy. Sweet coffee nose, sweet coffe tast. Kind of boring and icky.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - SEP 7, 2003
To start, great bottle, quite unique. Thick tan head that lingers for a while with good lacing. Aroma was licorice and coffee with some chocolate notes. Very creamy mouthfeel. Taste was coffee and chocolate with a touch of hop bitteness to complement. Nice aftertaste as well. Excellent stout!!

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Dark color with tan fairly large head.Cool bottle. Aroma a bit weak but does have some coffee and raisin notes to it.Sweet malty,hoppy chocolate feel in the mouth that is balanced well.Finish is sweet but does become a little bitter as it lingers. Good stout.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2012 Fantastic, creamy smooth stout. Dark and a great bottle, which my wife wants to keep. Update: 2011 version is less creamy, more tart and wine-like.

Formidable. High appearance marks, especially with the reworked dark olive brown-green bottle. Nice cascading tan head, and beer dark enough to watch eclipses through. A little cardboard(?!) on the very frontend, as you breathe in while drinking. Baked fig/raisin flavors (like those big flat raisin fruit bars that you get in the grocery), chocolate, char, well-balanced and not too acidic. Good hop blend which complements the stout. Mouthy, with light bitter spice and mild tartness in the finish. I've got a feeling that my two other brews in the on-deck circle tonight are in for a rocky review...
