Well, it's fizzy, but I wouldn't call it creamy. Dark brown brew with a beige foam that lasts better when I poured it in a narrow glass. Not especially aromatic but there is plenty of roast barley in the nose. Malty body with a flavor that grows richer as it warms.

The main flavor is dark roasted malt with a charred finish. Grainy and coarse, though there is a hint of sweet malt on the lips even through to the aftertaste. From the 12 oz bottle in the box of Dick's picks.

Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown color with some rings of light lace. The aroma had some mild roast, sublte sweet caramel maltiness. Lactose comes in after some warming. The flavor leans to the roast and caramel malts first. Creamy lactose sweetness amplifies after some warming just like in the aroma. Mostly sweet imbalanced aftertaste and finishes with a slight syrupy contour. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Gets a bit syrupy slick in the feel. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Overall, imbalanced sweet stout, though I was able to finish the bottle, just gets a bit too syrupy in the feel and finish.

Not a bad stout but not much of a cream feel. Poured from a bottle into a glass. I only point that out because of the self proclamation. Otherwise a great stout.
