500ml bottle - Pours dark brown with a very thin tan head. Based on other reviews, the latter seems to vary a lot between bottles. It has a nice, ample aroma of dark roasted malts and chocolate with a little coffee in there too. The flavor is that roast malt and lots of dark chocolate. Unfortunately itís on the watery side for a stout. The carbonation is quite low and the the mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Good, but it could be better with more body. Itís not good enough for the $4.59 a bottle liquor store price around here. Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2007
500ml Bottle: Pours dark brown, good sized taupe head. Aroma of your traditional cream stout suspects: roasted malt, chocolate, off-milk, espresso. Nice, though. Flavour followed those offers with the added hopping thatís actually quite strong, but balanced. Altogether quite good, but a bit watery for what Iíd traditionally like. Enjoyable, though.

(Bottle, Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon, London 25 Apr 2007) Dark brown, nearly black, colour with small but firm head. Roasted nose with dark chocolate and strong, black coffee. Slightly vinous. Heavily roasted taste with chocolate, coffee (with cream) and a creamy bittersweet finish. Medium to full body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Very nice. cgarvieuk (24166) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2007

Of of the most impressive heads Iíve seen: thick, dark, and frothy. Poured a little more tenuous body than I had expected, but the color is a very impressive black. Itís literally as black as black can be; donít even try to look through the glass. Scent not as roasty as expected, but more chocolate (like 87% cocoa Dagoba chocolate) and coffee beans. "Bittersweet" describes the taste and aftertaste quite well. There is a thinner mouthfeel that detracts from the experience. Overall, I enjoyed it even more because I think itís unique. I canít really compare it to many other brews, so it gets points for that. doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2007
Roast, expresso, honey, and syrup notes in the aroma. Black with thin brown head. Sweet roasted malts, mild hops, and coffee flavour. Roast and bitter finish. shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle. Sweet smoky dark chocolate malt aroma. Dark black with large tan head and nice lacing. Smoky milk chocolate malt flavor with light hops finish. Slightly light but a nicely blended beer. Deliciousl mcox90 (2072) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 21, 2007
Cool bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black with not much head. The first few sips tasted almost metallic. As the beer warmed a bit it tasted better. I did enjoy it and will definitely try it again. tgncc (3129) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 17, 2007
Decent cream stout, by no means the best. Aroma is typical of cream stouts, chocolate with a roasty scent. Appearance is dark, dark black. the flavor is typical of cream stouts, only a little weaker than most. It has a thick mouthfeel, creamy. Decent finish, not too abrupt. Not bad, but at $3.99 for a 16.9 oz bottle, Iím not that impressed.
