Near-black pour with minimal head. Aroma mildly bitter aroma. Flavor is bitter roasted malt, coffee, light toffee. How did I manage to get a year old bottle?

Black with beige head, nice lacing. Somewhat dried fruit aroma. Thick mouth feel. Sweet in the beginning. Floral earthy notes in the finish. A very thick and creamy stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice black color with a medium sized tan head. Sweet coffee aroma with hints of chocolate. Almost watery flavor that finishes the story the aroma starts. Easy to drink with nice carbonation to match the smoothness of the beer. "Sessionable" if you will. Mild for a stout but warms up nicely.

Dark, rich, and sweet. Didnít even notice the alcohol. The description is right, itís oh so smooth. Wouldnít drink too many, but what a great dessert beer.

Sweet coffee aroma and tastes the same. Very good stout. Good back bone but not too heavy. Had a six pack from Holmes with Erik.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2004 I like the cream addition to this stout as it makes it very smooth. Also very roasty and sticky, nice mocha head.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours almost totally black, just a hint of red around the edges, and a foamy light brown head. Lots of sweet toffee on the nose, nice caramel notes, very light vanilla bean flavor, milk chocolate, and slightly nutty smelling. Very nice light and creamy milk chocolate taste, very subtle coffee note, toasted malt, caramel, and sweet lactose. Tasty and sweet. Very much a desert beer.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black with a light dark brown head. Taste is superbly well balanced. Not too much roast or chocolate. Goes down surprisingly smooth for a stout with little/no aftertaste. Maybe my favorite all-round stout based purely on the ease by which one can put this one down.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells like a dark version of ovaltine in milk with a tiny touch of black licorice in there. Flavor is rich with light roast malts and rye or pumpernickel bread, finishing with a little coffee. The cream in the name definitely comes in the aroma and taste more so than the body of the brew, I would call this light/medium bodied but that makes a few of these so easy to take down. Nice easy going stout. Thanks Bells. 2009 12 oz.
