A very sweet and milky stout with a chocolate body and thick head. The flavor is straightforward but very well put together. A great example of a sweet stout.

Barreras (1601) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 19, 2014
:Pours a Deep black color with aroma of rolled oats and malt. Taste is minor chocolate and roasted malt. Not as robust as I initially thought but a smooth mellow finish. A good bread mouthfeel, that dissipates quickly. A decent stout that I enjoyed at the brewery.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
This was by far one of the best sweet stouts I have ever had. Beautiful dark creamy head. Lots of roasty taste, but never overpowering. Great coffee and chocolate taste near the end. It finishes so nice and smooth, that you have to have more, because even though it is sweet, it is the perfect amount of sweet.

Keg Pint at Heartland, Empire State Building, New York in March 2013 - Opaque Black. Very malty; roasty malts, oaty, lots of coffee and dark chocolate, caramel, hints of liquorice and nuts, some smoke. Creamy and smooth; well balanced. Sweet roast malty throughout developing a dry roast bitterness at the finish. Liked this a lot. Nice Sweet Stout!

5oz sampler from the brewpub NYC. Pours a dark brown/almost black color with ruby red highlights, and a thick creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, wood, and dark chocolate. Taste of cheap roasted coffee, vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, and slightly boozy. Mouthfeel was kind of flat.

Slipstream (2502) - USA - DEC 14, 2013
On tap at Heartland Union Square. A lightly sweet stout, with a little roasty/ burnt toast flavor and sugar. The menu said it was an award winner. I wonder what award it won - the average award?
