3.03/5 rDev -13.4%
Tasted On: 11-08-2011
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle
Glassware: Tulip pint
Purchased: Received in a trade
A: Pours with a crazy, massive tan head of 6 fingers. I think this bottle has some over-carbonation. Each pour from the bomber leads to the same crazy foam. Color is black and almost entirely opaque, with some slight ruby edges seen. Good retention and very good lacing.
S: Light aromas of toasted malts and coffee, but there's not a lot in the nose here.
T: Flavors are of smoked, roasted malts, with a bittersweet character. Seems a bit too dry for the style.
M: Features a medium level of carbonation and somewhat thin bodied. The finish is dry and has a coffee-like aftertaste. Reminds me more of an Irish dry stout than a milk/cream stout.
O: Overall an OK beer, but I found it needing improvement in every area.

3.55/5 rDev +1.4%
A: Pours a dark black color, small tan/white head no lacing
S: Not too much. Roasted grains and slight coffee
T; Slight sweet maltiness up front followed by more bitter roasted grains and coffee flavor also some grassy hop flavors
M: Mouthfeel is pretty nice. Medium bodied goes down smooth and creamy
O: This beer is ok, it needs something more though...smell was almost non existant. A bigger malt bill might make this one real good.

Looks very much like coca cola. Might have some carbonation issues. Color is black with little tan head. Smell has some coffee, sweetness, and other stuff. Tastes decent, very simple- not a lot of flavor. What they did put into this seems like they didn't put enough because i'm not tasting a lot of flavor. Not much after taste. It is smooth which a cream stout should be. But the mouthfill is kind of watery, not thick like a stout should be. Not sure if there was a carbonation issue on this one...seems kind of flat. Just not doing it for me, not enough flavor or thickness for my likeing.
