Poured into a Breckenridge balloon glass.

The beer is a deep espresso bean black, with coffee brown hues around the edges. The dark cream colored head dissipates to a thin film; good sticky lacing coats the glass. The beer smells fantastic -- dark roasted malts, coffee, and bitter chocolate. The taste is phenomenal. Rich, dark bitter chocolate coats the palate at first, then notes of roasted malts and espresso coffee hit the palate. A sugary lactose burn touches the throat on the finish. The mouthfeel is full bodied with a dry, slightly alcoholic finish.

Overall, it goes down deliciously smooth, and makes for a great sipper.

Poured from 12oz bottle into stout glass. Clean brown pour, jet black in the glass with visible carbonation, lets no light through. Fizzy dark tan head which dissipates leaving lovely lacing and film. Smell is sweet, smooth, coffee and chocolate, all in balance. Taste is similar; coffee and chocolate bitterness predominate up front, with a sweet silky finish that goes perfectly with the velvety mouthfeel.

Had this on tap at the Flying Saucer Eleventeen anniversary party.

A: Dark dark, black/brown. Little tan head with light lacing around edge

S: Light choco smell. Malts roasted.

T: Big malty flavor, then the choco and creaminess hits. Love the slight spices.

Mf: almost coke like slight fizziness.

Oa. Like it a lot. I like choco stouts and crean stouts, choc cream is awesome.

Poured into a snifter served at cellar temperature. So black that no light would shine through with a slightly brown layer of head. The aroma was full of caramel and chocolate malt. I was a bit apprehensive that it was going to be insanely sweet but the guys at Breckenridge do a great job making beer first then adding the right amount of flavors that won't over power what it's supposed to be. Great flavor with a ridiculously smooth almost velvety feel. On the aftertaste you start to taste the lingering flavor of dark chocolate.
