4oz samplePours very dark brown. Aroma of peat, molasses, vanilla. Flavor is smokey, caramel, vanilla, cherry, roasty, cocoa. Dry finish.
B. Pours a black color with khaki head. It’s an easier drinking stout, smooth AirForceHops (7680) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Draft at Old Chicago, Omaha, NE. Color is pitch black, thin lacing down the shaker glass. Aroma is burnt sugar, mild roast, dark chocolate and maybe coffee like tones.

The body is pretty good, fuller side of medium. The flavor is indeed sweet with lactose sugar noticeable under the chocolate and coffee grinds. Very little roasted malt, could use a tad more in that department. Sweet but not overly done. Pretty nice classic example of the style and easy to drink.
12 oz. bottle. Pours cola colored with minimal head that disappeared quickly. Aroma was roasty, chocolates and cream. Taste was coffee and light cream. Good one. deyholla (12031) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Sampled from the bottle at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pours a clear dark brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a sweet musty dark grain with hints of bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is similar with sweet musty dark grains and chocolate as well as a hint of roasted malts.

Sweet Stouts are some of my favorite dark beers, and Fallen Angel is one Empyrean beer that’s eluded me. Maybe it was my high excitement to try this beer that led to it being something of a letdown for me. If you call a beer Fallen Angel, I want a sinfully delicious black beer with seductive smoothness and hedonistic - yet calculated - sweetness. Fallen Angel just isn’t that. As a Sweet Stout, it’s not particularly sweet (there is some spicy-sweet chocolate). Nor is it very Stout-like (not a lot of roasted flavor). That’s not to say it’s bad. There’s a creamy taste and the grains are nice. Still, I found myself wanting a richer flavor and a velvet body. This is a decent seasonal that’s light on alcohol, though. If that’s your thing.

smooth-drinking, late-winter wonder. We’ve crafted this English-styled stout using roasted malts and a healthy dose of lactose sugar to produce a creamy-rich beer with hints of roasted chocolate. TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Tap a while ago. Pours brown. Weak roasted malts, some chocolate on the nose. Taste is similar, somewhat sweet, somewhat thin. arnold931 (1263) - Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with light tan head. Nose is chocolate and some roast. Taste is mild. Some chocolate and maybe some coffee. Okay. Maltser85 (358) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours a dark brown blackish color with a tan head. Well carbonated. Notes of milk, milk chocolate and roast. Sweet up front, creamy with a pop of carbonation. Roasted notes dominate along with the lactose. Moves in and out of chocolate notes, but very light. Light bodied beer, not great, or sessionable, but not cloyingly sweet, so thats good.

A- Coffee, chocolate, roasty.
A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Coffee, chocolate, bitter cocoa, roasty, slightly sweet, balanced.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- This sweet stout has a lot of coffee flavor and lots of chocolate. Not as creamy as I would have expected it to be but the sweetness from all the sugar is definitely present.
