Very very smooth and creamy. Chocolate aftertaste. Thin in the body. Very subtle porter like qualities in this gem of a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shakesbeere (219) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2008
UPDATED: APR 28, 2009 A dark brown poor; smells of malt and roasted barley. Taste has characters of coffee, chocolate, and honey with a slight fruity background - either cherry or berries. An even mixture of flavors with a creamy roasted undertone. An excellent brew; goes extremely well with chocolate desserts.

Jlo7399 (218) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2012
Pours dark brown with little to no tan head. Aroma is roasted and sweet malts. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, caramel malts, other things that are dark. Finishes pretty bitter. Itís ok, but certainly not their best stuff.

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2008
12oz Bottle: Pours virtually black w/ a small brown head. Aroma is of sweet malts & grain. Sweet malts fade into a nice roasted coffee flavor towards the end. Aftertaste is all roasted (yet sweet) malt/mocha flavors. Very smooth & creamy mouthfeel. Yummy!

As far as non-flavored sweet stouts go, this one rates high. Smooth and robust. They use 10 different malts. This brew has more grain depth than the typical sweet stout. No coffee, no chocolate, just straight up smooth and creamy stout.
