Dark brown pour with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and roasty malts. Feel is soft and smooth on the lighter side of medium body. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, earthy wood notes, well balanced and tasty. Very solid beer.

Bottle. Very dark color, clear, creamy brown head. Aroma of chocolate licorice toasted malts, very aromatic with some spices, light hops. Sweetish and umami taste, light bitterness. Woody tones and round medium to full body, soft carbonation, smooth aromatic finish. Delicious.

Colore bruno opaco con schiuma color cappuccino. Al naso prevalgono aromi di malto tostato, caff e liquirizia. In bocca decisa con sapori di cioccolatino al caff, frutta secca con un finale sorprendentemente secco. Retrogusto di cioccolato.

fuzzcro (295) - Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Very nice...I get a bit of a licorice flavor I didnt expect. Very nice aroma. Its an attractive pour with more flavor than I expected also. I didnt get the bittersweet, possibly that is the licorice flavor I caught.

tricksta_p (3894) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2016
Bottle from local bottle shop. Aroma is roasted malt, milk chocolate, creamed coffee, touch of smoke, and a little liquorice in the finish. Flavour is medium sweet and moderate to medium bitter. Body is medium and a bit creamy. Pretty rich and complex considering the abv, very enjoyable Cream Stout. Marvellous drinkability.

Liquorice and dark fruits tickle the nose, but tastes less aromatic. Full bodied with a nice carbonation and a bitter-sweet aftertaste. Very satisfying.

butelka.0,5l. czarne jak smoła, gruba czapka, brązowej, grubopęcherzykowej piany, szybko redukującej się do zera. aromat czekolady, popiołu, słodw palonych, czuć ziołowość i alkohol. po ogrzaniu więcej czekolady, ale też więcej alkoholu. w pierwszym odczuciu nieznacznie słodkie, ale pźniej goryczka dominuje, popiołowość zalega na podniebieniu, podobnie jak goryczka od czekolady.

badhack (546) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Not as heavy or creamy as I expected but okay. Good dark malt, chocolate flavor. No smoke or charcoal. Hops are balanced, touch herbal or earthy seemed. A little nutty, touch of dark fruit and caramel.

superspak (4993) - Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2016
500 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 11/2/2015. Pours crystal clear nearly opaque dark brown color with a small dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, vanilla, cream, light smoke/nuttiness, herbal, light pepper, slight dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity dark/roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, vanilla, cream, light smoke/nuttiness, herbal, light pepper, slight dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, vanilla, cream, herbal, light smoke, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slight dryness from roast/hop bitterness as well. Light carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is an outstanding English style cream stout! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, lactose, and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Spot on English malt complexity, with an awesome mouthfeel. A highly enjoyable offering.
