The cream does go a crazy long way in this beer. The roasted maltiness adds a great chocolate flavor that the sugar balances out.

Really nice well rounded stout. Aromas are chocolatey and roasty and flavors are very similar. Very smooth and well balanced. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours almost black with a smooth, medium, off white head. The aroma contains roasted malts, chocolate, and a little bit of coffee. The taste does lean towards the sweetness. Heavier chocolate, lighter in vanilla and coffee, white still quite roasted. Aftertaste is more bitter and is chocolate and mild coffee. Light in body, creamy in texture, with carbonation being very soft. There isn’t any real negative with this one, although I’d consider this a rather generic offering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, dusty. Taste is sweet roasted malts and a dry bitter finish. Palate is a little thin for the flavor. Overall it’s not bad, but nothing I’d crave.

16 ounce can poured into a brand snifter. Pours a dark brown with a thin khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has notes of Oreo and coffee. Taste is creamy and roasty with some nice biscuity notes. A little different take on a sweet stout. Never had one quite like this before.

Draft. From notes. Chocolate and roasty malt. A little thin and watery but a solidly sweet flavor.
This beer was a pleasant surprise. I recommend.

16oz can thanks to RobertDale via local swap! Pours a deep dark brown/almost black color with a fingers worth of fizzy head. Aroma is nice. Roasted malts, chocolate cookies, and Irish cream. Taste is a little watered down, but flavor is decent. Chocolate, a hint of vanilla, lactose sugar, and a nice aftertaste of fresh coffee beans.
