beer_queue (139) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2016
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.

Bijl (560) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2017
Gitzwart....zelfs onderin het glas geen licht. Bruine schuimkraag die snel zakt, mooie laagvorming langs het glas. Aroma: Vanille, donker geroosterde mout, chocolade, koffie en donkere bessen. Smaak: Zoethout, iets ziltig, drop, geroosterde mout, chocolade, mokka. Ergens ook een heel licht zuurtje en een volle roasty bitter. De Fuggles en Challenger hops geven nog wat kruidigheid en pit. Medium body, zacht mondgevoel en koolzuur, afdronk is lang, roasty koffie en bitter. Echt heel goed en zonder poespas!

joet (2600) - Wilsonville, California, USA - JUN 21, 2002
Incredible roasty nose that is much more articulate than most but difficult for me to translate. It doesnt lend itself easily to coffeee or cocoa analogies -- its very purely roasty with room for some coal and tobacco edges. Creamy without overdoing it with nitro. Some bitter cocoa in the finish. There hops all voer this brew though I wouldnt guess the IBUs are greater than 30. Thankfully, no soft (oxidized) hopping spoils the beers incredible brightness.

This is the best Cream Stout I have had the plessure to sample. A deep dark color with little or no head. Very smooth and creamy with a touch of bitterness at the finish. I like this stout very much!

tommann (3673) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a small head. Lots of milk chocolate and hints of coffee on the nose. First taste and the chocolate and coffee are there again. Mouthfeel is slightly thick, coats the mouth like cream. After taste is the same, with some dry malt. Not much boozy warmth, very easy drinking for its 6.5%.

Bottle 500ml. Great beer, alcohol is well hidden. Aromas of milky chocolate, coffee. Taste is sweet, with bitter and spicy notes. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black with a frothy white head.

nazzty (1375) - dkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2013
Really nice stout with distinct licorice notes (Bassets liquorice?). Good creaminess and solid foam which unfortunately disappears somewhat quickly. A nice bitterness gives a long and pleasant aftertaste.

huineman (670) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 5, 2015
Brown black with tan head. Aroma is coffee, smoke, cocoa, caramel, even black olive. Soft, creamy, very well balanced. Not very long-lingering. A very elegant stout.

One of my favourites, very smooth and black as night. Well balanced between bitter and sweet.
