Bottle. Pours a dark brown opaque color with a ligh ttan head. Nose is very nutty. Taste is coffee and nuts. throughout the flavor becomes less potent and eases up on your senses.

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.

A little wattery the sweet restes uneasy ond the mouthfeel had a little too much separation of the flavors. hen it came around a little as it wrmed and made an ok showing as a light stout... leaning towards a light oatmeal.

500ml bottle. Pours opaque black w/ no head. Potent dusty aroma of coffee and chocolate...smoked almonds appear...thick, oily, and slightly boozy first impression. Quite sweet, w/ only some hints at bitterness in the finish. Very chocolate flavor that doesnít leave room for much else to come in...maybe slightly cheesey in the finish (hops?) along with some smoke character. Quite flat on the carbonation. Molasses character as well...which I donít like. Overall it is enjoyable, but I have no reason to drink this over Bellís much more excellant Kalamazoo stout. Bellís still sets the benchmark for stouts in my mind. Goofy bottle doesnít do much for me either.

I was expecting a little more from this one. Has a nice roasted chocolate malt flavor, and a burnt coffee character later on. Thereís barely any mouthfeel, itís thin and water-like. Initially itís nice, but it doesnít have the complexity that youíd expect from a stout.

This is a really darnk beer, solid black and It has no head. It has a real nice burt chocolate taste thats nire a creamy. Goes down nice and smooth. I really like the elliptical bottle with its greenish color. Iíve never really been impressed my the aroma aspect of these styles, has a hint of burt in it. All together a solid beer. Wish it had more carbonation.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2007
UPDATED: APR 1, 2007 Comes in a 500 ml (specially?) designed bottle. Dark brown/near black apperance. Small lasting tan head leaving almost perfect laces. Aroma is not that impressing; weak, quite roasty with a little chocolate. Taste is more powerful ;Sweet dark malts, a lingering bitterness along with coffeebeans and dark chocloate. Healthy body. Nice.

500ml bottle - Pours dark brown with a very thin tan head. Based on other reviews, the latter seems to vary a lot between bottles. It has a nice, ample aroma of dark roasted malts and chocolate with a little coffee in there too. The flavor is that roast malt and lots of dark chocolate. Unfortunately itís on the watery side for a stout. The carbonation is quite low and the the mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Good, but it could be better with more body. Itís not good enough for the $4.59 a bottle liquor store price around here.
