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.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 12, 2003
This beer poured a very dark color with a very small head. The aroma was chocolate, coffee, malts, milk, and several other things. Excellent aroma. The flavor was smooth and enjoyable and not as sweet as expected. The flavor was mostly like the aroma with some sort of fruits hidden as well. Body was medium and drinkability was fairly smooth.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2004
An opaque black brew with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, coffee, and toastiness. At first, I though this a sweet brew, with little bitterness. The more I drank, the more the bitterness became apparent. The silky feel complements the roasted malt and chocolate flavors. A dry, somewhat smoky finish. I would qualify this one as a "tweener" - not quite a sweet stout, but note quite a dry either. Cool bottle, nice lacing.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is all black. The medium sized foam is deep brown, and dissolves slowly into a brownish surface. The smell is powerful; it is sweet and full of cocoa, roasted malts and black coffee. The carbon dioxide is very gentle, almost absent but still noticeable with really small bubbles. The mouth feel is very “creamy”, like drinking a mix of milk and cream. The roasted malt gives this beer a flavour that is almost smoky taste. There are distinct notes of cocoa, pumpernickel, coffee liqueur and a good measure of bitter hops. The aftertaste is creamy with an increasing bitterness, which slowly decreases into a soft taste of dark chocolate and coffee. This stout is really… Stout. The smell and taste is potent, but at the same time very elegant and well balanced. The almost overwhelming flavour and the soft carbon dioxide almost invite you to a really slow drinking experience that could last all night. Pleasant in its own way, but in some cases, it might be just too much.

Nice bottle. Crisp and not overly sweet. Coffe and chocolate flavors are there. Good but not great but better than that Irish one people rave about

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours a tan head, creamy and smooth, an almost chewy mouthfeel with a slight alcoholic undertone.

ABUSEDGOAT (2417) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2005 Thin black body, almost no head. No lacing on the glass. Aroma is very chocolatey. It’s very smooth drinking and it’s chocolate and there’s some licorice and coffee hints in there as well. Shoulda been called Chocolate Stout. Whatever.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2005 Rerate. Pours a lush brown. Aroma is copper and stale hops. Flavor is smoky, with chocolate undertones and a nice sour hops finish. Good beer.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2006
This beer tickles the nose with an almond aroma that has hints of coffee lingering in the background. It is a black liquid with a thick brown head that fades fast. This thin bitter solution has the taste of smoke and coffee combined and proceeds to get sweeter with every taste.
