Pours a very viscous and inky black with one finger of chestnut brown head. Nose shows burnt sugar and molasses with some fruit and chocolate. Rich flavor, shows dark chocolate and espresso. Roast shows in the flavor as well as the aroma. Full bodied and viscous with a roasty finish.

Roasted coffee aroma with a sweet note mixed in; maple maybe, some caramel and cream as well. Pours black in the glass with a cola colored head. Clean and straightforward roasted malt and espresso flavors. Overall, i dig it...

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 July 18th, 2012 - My palate’s relationship between beer and cream has always been uneasy after a tragic evening with a couple of Irish car bombs (a gauche name, I know) and a grueling hang over. Much like fish, it feels like cream has no business mingling with a dark beer. But one youthful experience shouldn’t bar the door for better beer experiences, which led me to Twisted Pine’s Sweet Cream Stout. I’ve actually had this sometime in the past too, but I always enjoy coming back to a brew with a slightly more experienced palate. This is a big chocolate colored brew, of course, with a frothy milk chocolate covered head, mottled and puffy. Fresh cream, sweet and tangy, blends with the smell of cheaply made coffee (thinking of Japan’s small canned coffees), a touch of soy sauce, a couple of sweet grapes, and otherwise a sweetened blend without anything especially distinctive. The flavor is dominated by dark malts, and completely lacks bitterness until the mid or aftertaste, after which it becomes “scratchy.” The palate is surprisingly quenching, and supports the flavor, though less sweet than the aroma. A solid and drinkable beer, it’s like a regular winter warmer (in July?!) with amplified sweetness. July 31st, 2011 - Before I had a chance to visit the Twisted Pine Brewery, I went through Twisted Pine’s variety box, hoping to find a gem in a brewery that combined a beautiful Colorado aesthetic with the art of beer. I also hoped there’d be something special about Twisted Pine, who has, as it were, grown and clambered through the forest of a very competitive beer scene to make a name for itself. I begin this trek with their Cream Style Stout, a stout with a generous addition of roasted barley, and a medal behind it too. The pour is smooth and oily, like the Eunuch from A Song of Ice and Fire, but the head quickly deflates, revealing the beer, and unveiling the aroma. It’s savory, with roasted smells (the barley, yes?), not too sweet and absent the caramel touch I find in a lot of main line stouts. The barley aroma feel a bit tortured, but from this pain comes gustatory pleasure, where soy sauce and hints of raisin enter the bouquet. Despite the style, the body is flat, and smoother than I’m used to, but compensates for this with a savory, salty and delicious flavor. Fig is wedged in between tectonic plates of meandering flavors - burnt caramel, roasted barley, and more soy sauce. There’s a lot of smokiness too, but it’s surprisingly light and effete. This is good drinking, and a good start to my Twisted Pine sampler.

Very dark brown pour with a small tan head. The aroma has roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and licorice. It has a full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. The taste mildly bitter with a roasted flavor.

Undoubtedly their best offering among their regular rotation, this beer is dark, rich, with a sticky mouthfeel. Medium to heavy body, notes of chocolate and dark fruit.

Pours black almost indigo. Thin brown head. Coffee beans and some chocolate on nose. Thick chocolate malts. Not really feeling the CREAM but it's a decent stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet roast and light dry finish. A decent stout from Twisted Pine.

This is a great stout. Very smooth and creamy on the palate, with a nice balanced burnt malt profile. Loved it.
