3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Helen’s JAD in KC, MO. Dark brown pour with a deep tan head. Aroma is sitting right in the middle of roasty chocolate and lactose sugary sweetness. Flavor and body are floating somewhere between a milk stout and Moose Drool brown, with light roasted malts, slight sweetness, and very little in the way of hop presence.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent dark, chocolatey taste and pretty creamy mouthfeel. Could stand to be a bit heavier in body and with less bitterness, but a good cream stout nonetheless! Good sweet flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours medium brown with a thin, fizzy foam. Roasty, meaty, more unpleasant than pleasant aroma. It’s thin, fizzy mouthfeel really ruins this beer for me. The chocolatey, roasted barley flavor is pretty damn good but alas, it cannot salvage this quite forgetable example of a sweet stout.

16 oz can. Brown pour, thin tan head that quickly fades. Roasted coffee aroma & flavor as well. Thin mouthfeel, finish is a bit watery but does leave some of the coffee flavor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque black with a medium sized tan head mostly lasting. Nose is of chocolate and molasses. Nice mouthfeel, the taste is of dark roasted malt with hints of coffee, chocolate and caramel. No hops detected. Very smooth, this stout’s tastes are not as pronounced as other stouts I have tried but is nonetheless a good tasting brew. Try it paired with a buffalo burger and raw onion.

Mahogony trimmed black body beneath a fading 1.5" light khaki head leaving flat dense shallow lace all around
Aroma of creamy lactic blending caramel notes and pleasant chocolate cake with a controlled dark chocolate-coffee influence introducing subtle bitter nuance on a light-medium, mildly carbonated body finishing with hints of dark fruit, and a touch of vanilla, smooth chocolate on the dark side of sweet rounding out, solid session
16oz can at 45º into 16.5oz Stölze Berlin

Can to glass. Pours a glassy brown with a small, quickly disappearing khaki head. Aroma is primary vanilla and coffee. Taste is similar, with a little less sweetness than the aroma. Good example of the style.
