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!

creamy chocolaty taste, great smell, very nice poor thick rich head. I enjoyed this stout, not to bitter in the taste.

Beautiful pour color, sweet on the palate without oversickening. I could sniff a fresh pour of this all day--or at least for a minute or so. The bottles from this brewer are also fantastic and great for re-using for homebrew.

A delicious Cream Stout from the good old boys of England. Tradtionally sound this beer is as much a joy to taste as it is to look at. Also the bottle fits perfectly in both hands.

tommann (3527) - 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%.

davidm (2072) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 1, 2010
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 (1271) - 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.

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.
