Pours thick black color with creamy beige head. Beautiful smell with subtle sweetness to it - caramel, tofee, milk... Its like youre smelling cake, not a beer. Lovely. Full body with soft carbonation. Very creamy and very smooth. Taste is very rich. Caramel, milk, roasted coffee, toffee. A bit smoked with a very subtle bitternes to it. Faint notes of alcohol and dark chocolate are present in the aftertaste. Finish is long and dry. Overall, this is an outstanding stout. Up there with the best of them, this one is an absolute must have. Awesome!

To start, great bottle, quite unique. Thick tan head that lingers for a while with good lacing. Aroma was licorice and coffee with some chocolate notes. Very creamy mouthfeel. Taste was coffee and chocolate with a touch of hop bitteness to complement. Nice aftertaste as well. Excellent stout!!

Pours dark black with a thick coffee colored head. Beautiful aroma of malty chocolate, coffee, toffee, and hints of dark fruit. Wonderful roasted coffee taste mixed with dark chocolate and dark berries. Great beer!

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2009
Wow! This poured an impenetrable, near-as-dammit black colour. Blacker than Tobys it was. Not much head to speak of, just an ever so think skin of tan. Aroma smelt like coffee and malt and chocolate, in a very good way. And wasnt the taste just the same, in a heroic, delicious way as well. Grand, smooth mouthfeel and not at all thin like some other stouts. Kudos for the usual sexy bottle (like a hip flask). Tasty and satisfying through and through. Too bad we dont have 9.5s on the ratings scale.

Review from notes at World of Beer - Fort Myers on 9/24/11. Poured from a 16.9 ounce bottle into an imperial pint glass. Appearance: Pours a coffee black with brown edges and a 1 finger creamy light tan head. Nice lacing. Smell: Sweet cream, sweet malt, toffee and a touch of coffee. Very sweet. Smells absolutely perfect. Taste: Vanilla and sweet malt up front followed by coffee in the middle before ending with a touch of bitter hops at the finish. Aftertaste is bittersweet. Mouthfeel: Medium-full-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Drinkability: Very good drinkability. You could drink a few on a cool evening. Overall: Excellent beer overall. This is the best cream stout Ive ever had. I highly recommend this one.

Gorgeous looking black brew with well balanced flavor and aroma of caramel, chocolate and roasted malts. Pleasant creamy texture and sturdy body to lean without feeling too heavy. A fine example of a sweet stout indeed.

This was the best stout we have had. And for once the panel is rather unison. And the bottle in itself topped the evening! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pitch black with a medium, frothy, tan head that thins out very quickly; very little to no lace. On the nose: a lot of bananas & grapes at first; roasted nuts, espresso coffee, creamy/buttery malts, and a little brown sugar. Flavors are very intense and bittersweet; a lot of grapes, nuts, & coffee up front. There are some bananas, green grapes, tart apples, brown sugar, and vanilla that appear subtly during the development. It finishes strong with extra dark chocolate & hops. Once it warms up, all of the flavors get a nice bump. The bittersweet balance is maintained throughout its glass life. Full body, low carbonation, bone-dry finish. Overall, its delicious and awesome that this beer maintains its complexity for being at a low ABV.
