Bottled. Pours pitch black with an average sized, creamy head. Aroma of slightly roasted malt and note of chocolate, light coffee and vanilla. Sweet flavor that ends up quite dry with notes of malt bitterness. Medium bodied, oily to creamy texture and soft carbonation. An excellent stout.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled November 5, 2013.

A: Pours a dark brown appearing black in the glass with minimal slightly tan head on top. Just a bit of head remains in the middle while the rest dissipates or fleets to the edges. Some spots of lacing on the glass.

S: Robust roasted malt is the first thing I think of when I take a whiff of this beer. Hints of sweetness such as molasses or toffee. Mild coffee and chocolate. A smokiness comes out more as it warms up.

T: As with the aroma there is loads of malt in the flavor. Big roasty flavor hits you as soon as you take a sip. It lingers well into the aftertaste. The milk stout qualities come through and really smooth things out. Alcohol is well hidden.

M: Smooth and creamy body with low carbonation. Pretty easy drinking especially considering the ABV.

Overall its a very enjoyable beer that is perfect for the winter months. Big roasty quality will leave you wanting to sip this one all night.

Bottled October 3rd 2013 and poured March 18th 2014. Into a shaker pint, unfortunately. $2.19 for a single bottle.

Appearance: Black with a head that fizzes away quickly and loudly -- sounds like pop. All that remains is what looks like black water with only a few carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom.

Smell: Hm. Nice. Roasty for sure, but sweetness that creates a bit of a caramel, milk chocolate, and vanilla character. A sweet smelling roast is the primary smell, with the other notes being a bit underlied.

Taste/feel: Definitely a solid beer. Doesn't strike me as being too much different than One Oatmeal stout, just that this one has a bit more "oomph", and a less mouthfeel.. they really are both quite similar beers. The carbonation is pretty mild, but prickly, on this beer, and the texture is a bit thin. The flavor is unlike the smell, as it's just a lot of coffee flavored roastiness, with a subtle vanilla sweetness. As it warms, more sweetness comes through along with... dark fruits? It seems out of place in a cream stout. I do like that it adds another dimension, but it's not what I look for in the style.

A very good cream stout, but not the best I've had. It looks ugly in the glass, but it has a pleasing aroma, and a pretty good flavor. The mouthfeel is a bit of a bummer, but Too remains enjoyable regardless. I prefer One to Too just because it is a bit more drinkable, with a nicer feel on it.

Quick Edit: I recommend getting the sediment in the bottle, as it thickens up the brew considerably and really pushes it over the top. After doing that, it turned a very good beer into a great one. You gotta get that all in the bottle.
