Pours dark black with a thick coffee colored head. Beautiful aroma of malty chocolate, coffee, toffee, and hints of dark fruit. Wonderful roasted coffee taste mixed with dark chocolate and dark berries. Great beer!

Wow! This poured an impenetrable, near-as-dammit black colour. Blacker than Toby’s it was. Not much head to speak of, just an ever so think skin of tan. Aroma smelt like coffee and malt and chocolate, in a very good way. And wasn’t the taste just the same, in a heroic, delicious way as well. Grand, smooth mouthfeel and not at all thin like some other stouts. Kudos for the usual sexy bottle (like a hip flask). Tasty and satisfying through and through. Too bad we don’t have 9.5’s on the ratings scale.

Review from notes at World of Beer - Fort Myers on 9/24/11. Poured from a 16.9 ounce bottle into an imperial pint glass. Appearance: Pours a coffee black with brown edges and a 1 finger creamy light tan head. Nice lacing. Smell: Sweet cream, sweet malt, toffee and a touch of coffee. Very sweet. Smells absolutely perfect. Taste: Vanilla and sweet malt up front followed by coffee in the middle before ending with a touch of bitter hops at the finish. Aftertaste is bittersweet. Mouthfeel: Medium-full-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Drinkability: Very good drinkability. You could drink a few on a cool evening. Overall: Excellent beer overall. This is the best cream stout I’ve ever had. I highly recommend this one.

Incredible roasty nose that is much more articulate than most but difficult for me to translate. It doesn’t lend itself easily to coffeee or cocoa analogies -- it’s very purely roasty with room for some coal and tobacco edges. Creamy without overdoing it with nitro. Some bitter cocoa in the finish. There hops all voer this brew though I wouldn’t guess the IBUs are greater than 30. Thankfully, no soft (oxidized) hopping spoils the beer’s incredible brightness.

This is the best Cream Stout I have had the plessure to sample. A deep dark color with little or no head. Very smooth and creamy with a touch of bitterness at the finish. I like this stout very much!

creamy chocolaty taste, great smell, very nice poor thick rich head. I enjoyed this stout, not to bitter in the taste.

Beautiful pour color, sweet on the palate without oversickening. I could sniff a fresh pour of this all day--or at least for a minute or so. The bottles from this brewer are also fantastic and great for re-using for homebrew.

A delicious Cream Stout from the good old boys of England. Tradtionally sound this beer is as much a joy to taste as it is to look at. Also the bottle fits perfectly in both hands.

500ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a small head. Lots of milk chocolate and hints of coffee on the nose. First taste and the chocolate and coffee are there again. Mouthfeel is slightly thick, coats the mouth like cream. After taste is the same, with some dry malt. Not much boozy warmth, very easy drinking for its 6.5%.

Bottle 500ml. Great beer, alcohol is well hidden. Aromas of milky chocolate, coffee. Taste is sweet, with bitter and spicy notes. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black with a frothy white head.
