4/5 rDev +0.8%
Pours straight black with a medium dark tan 1-finger head. No retention but decent lacing.
Nose is dark chocolate and medium roast coffee with sweet cream. Very nice and very rich.
Taste is strong chocolate malt. Nice roast hit, turns a little sweeter midway through, and finishes very dark and chocolaty. The chocolate really lingers.
Body is so close to perfect. very nice. Very rich body for a beer this low in alcohol.
easy to drink andvery well balanced !

Enjoyed this at Revivals Restaurant in Perkasie, PA. For those in the area, they have a decent selection of bottled and on-tap craft brews.
Served in the bottle and poured into a standard pint glass.
A - Pours a nearly black color with a one finger, tan colored head. Totally opaque. The head lasted a minute or two and faded to a light skim. Moderate lacing.
S - A mix of burnt malts and a slight chocolate sweetness.
T - The taste follows the smell with a nice combination of burnt malts, bitter chocolate and a hint of coffee. It wasn't as creamy as the name might suggest but a good brew regardless. Easily a beer you could down a few of. The alcohol is not noticeable.
M - Moderate consistancy. As mentioned, not as creamy as some other stouts I've had.
O - A decent but not a mind-blowing stout. From the name I expected a creamier taste which I didn't get. Nothing wrong with the beer per se. It is well crafted and tasted good. Just not a superior stout, in my opinion.
