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.

Aroma is pretty grainy with hints of some chocolate malts. Pours the typical stout fare. Grainy, sweet to start, watery in the middle--too watery with smokiness to finish.

Black body with a ring of tan foam on top. Milk chocolate aroma with a touch of pear. The flavor starts with a dry graininess and continues with a latte sweetened with apple and chocolate. I detect some of the hops in the finish - sort of a sweet dandelion flavor. I think I would like this beer more if it had a more robust mouthfeel, but itís good as it is.

Bottled. Black, beige head. Coffee and licorice in the nose. Sweet and creamy, with molasses and chocolate. Salty bitterish finish. Not very complex. On surface itís a wonderful beer, but if you dig deeper it appears to lack the finer details.

Pours dark brown, not black. Nose is simple of raisins, plummy and nice roasted malts. Flavor is creamy roasted malt with chocolate and coffee flavor. Bitter finish.

Opaque black with nice brown head. Aroma of dark roasted coffee, anise, chocolate. Medium bodied with too much carbonation for a stout in my opinion. Good flavor from that roasted coffee essence. Not bad overall.

Initially, I thought this would be a great beer. The aroma was dark, sweet, caramel malt. The color was as dark with a matching, foamy head that was long lasting. My first taste was very malty and I was needing some hops to come and and take away the thick sweetness. Little hops was to be found and my palate remained sticky and heavy. This require more hops - not enough balance.

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.
