Quite a bit too thick; even for a stout. Massive head, passable flavor.

I have only had this beer once, but my first impression was great. Excellent taste, and goes down smooth. I am not a fan of stout beers but give me one of these anytime.

Extremely tasty, with nice balance between the chocolatey sweetness and bitterness, flavorful malts. A good dessert treat for a stout drinker. Won’t work well with food, though.

Extremely big long-lasting head. Dark and Chocolaty one of my favorite all-time Stouts. Too bad its only seasonal. A real delight to drink!

When I first tried this beer, I was in shock. I expected a sickly sweet stout like Mackesons XXX, but to my surprise it was a bit bitter, like a good piece of dark chocolate. I LOVED this brew, and would always have some in my fridge, but sadly, I am a vegan and I understand they use lactose in it’s formulation, so I will refrain. For the general stout lover, this is a unique taste not to pass up. Definately a desert stout, as if that’s a big surprise. I agree with Canary Dog, if you want to turn someone onto stouts (particularly women), use this as your ice-breaker. Incredibly velvety and hardly any aftertaste.

Very thick, a must-try for stout fans. Smooth taste, the chocolate flavoring is just right. Unfortunately I didn’t quite finish my bottle when we arrived downtown for the night, so when we got there I had to dump it. But then I gave the bottle to a friend who is really good at throwing stuff, he launched it pretty far and it shattered impressively.
