COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with dark roasted barley and oatmeal for a very rich flavor and aroma. The oats provide greater mouth-feel, smoothness and foam quality for this stout. Past silver medal winner at "GABF".

Nothing offensive about the appearance, aroma, or palate. There’s a sour, brackish, astringent nastiness that made this one my first drain pour in a long while.

Sweet, coffee smell. Malty and coffee hints but a little to sour. Good on the palate but ends quite fast. The sourness maskes the rest of flavors.

Not a good stout but probably their most flavorful beer. Watery body. Coffee and bitter chocolate finish.

BBB63 (5740) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Bottle: Opaque with fading fizzy tan head and little lace. The aroma has notes of coffee, toasted malts, oats, lactic sourness, earthy yeast ester and prune. The taste had some chocoalte and vanilla tones, lots of coffee on the finish but little else. The feel is way too watery for style. I’ll pass next time.

Extremely dark brown color resulting in a black body. Quite a bit of carbonation but not much head, just a wipsy coating. Simple but enjoyable chocolate-grainy aroma. Tastes like weak malty coffee with a bit of lemon squeezed in it. Dry, fruity finish. I was encouraged by this beer's nice aroma but the taste doesn't match.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Stout looking with a decent tan colored creamy head and a mild chocolate aroma, faintly fruity. Light and silky mouthfeel approaching thin with a sweet fudge flavor and coffee background. Medium toasty bitter finish. It was ok but could stand some fattening up. Bottled version.

Horrible. Sour. Spoilt. Great head. I simply cannot say much more. Seventy Five. Seventy Five.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2003
Nice large tan head. Tastes like a kriek stout. It looked like such a promising beer but turned out to taste awful for a stout.

badgerben (4362) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Nice and dark with a good head. No particular smell that I get. Taste is bizzare. I agree with Cougar, sour and watery body. Disappointing.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 24, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 Sweet malty plum aroma turns into a disappointing sour watery body. Pleasant roasted finish, but this should be stoutier, if that's a word.
