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.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown with a thin off white head that dissipates quickly leaving little lacing. Very mild aroma with notes of vanilla and malt. Thinner mouthfeel than I expected. Coffee and chocolate notes with a toasty aftertaste. Not bad, but thin for a cream stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark, dark brown with a small tan head that vanished quickly. Pleasant chocolate and molasses aroma. Great taste of chocolate and malt with a bit of coffee. Incredible creamy, smooth finish makes this one of my favorites.

Gooey, ooey, rich and chewy. If you like a full flavored, chocolatey stout you canít go wrong here. Just bowls you over with the endless flavor

Bottle at Bellís Eccentric Cafe. Not overly impressed. If I didnít know better, I would never have guessed this is a sweet stout. Tasted very mainstream. Nothing that made me want another. Switched to the Expedition stout-- much better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
For a beer with 10 different types of malt in it this was a disappointingly one-dimensional beer. Faint aroma of coffee and liquorice, and with a taste of cold coffee and mollases. Really malt sweet upfront, but a thin, watery body - nothing like the fat, chewy character of its big brother the Expedition Stout. A poor relation in my book.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a black colour with a fluffy tan head that left beautiful thin lacing. Aroma is of dark roasted and chocolate malts with a hint of coffee. Flavor of grainy dark malts, slight cream, and coffee. Medium bodied with light carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel.
