Great when chilled and right from the tap: sweet like a European coffee served with milk. Doesnít do well sitting in the glass; loses a good taste when it gets warmer.

I drank this on tap at the home court, just off Harvard Yard. What a great experience! Nice, creamy head, robust full flavor with a light hop finish. I had to linger for a second pint.

On tap in Cambridge, MA. I have to say that when i started on Ratebeer i didn't care for stouts at all...and now i'm finding that i'm liking them a lot. This one was nice and dark with a thick head on it. Creamy, coffee-ee taste (yum!). pretty darn good.

Solid black pour with red highlights only at the very end. Rich creamy head. Very nice sweet chocolate aroma, with only slight coffee or roast smells. Flavor was sweet lactose with a very nice body. Solid sweet stout.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Framingham, MA location, Feb 2005 as the "Cream Stout" But Shaneís review almost exactly describes the beer I drank, so this must be the same. Dark brown pour with notes of black chocolate syrup and even some dark auburn tinges on the edges. Thick and heavily transluscent, highly unfiltered. Creamy beige head with a milk chocolate and light roast aroma. As it begins, there is first a note of light coffee and licorice, but then the milk chocolate comes forth, and mixed with a medium, cream and water body, it creates a wonderfully drinkable and refreshing beer. Low alcohol on this, under 5% as I recall. Wonderful session stout here, with just a hint of roast and coffee for added complexity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nearly black body and a tan creamy looking head. Roasted malts and coffee make up most of the aroma. Chocolate flavor is really the most prominent. Not as bittersweet as some other stouts... more on the just sweet side of things. Creamy mouth feel, making it pleasant in really any weather. Really roasty and full of chocolate shop flavors... toffee and caramel included.
