Reid (1897) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Nice near pitch black coloured stout ( what else?)..there are some ruby accents when held to the light Roasted oats in the aroma some dark treacle too. Nice and creamy yet bitter taste.Like a good chocolate bar also a touch of liquorice and black coffee. The palate is a little on the thin side for a stout..but this increases the drinkablity . Good beer.

Dark brown body with small brown head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, hint of roast. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, slight caramel stickiness. Finish is mildly roasty. Medium full body.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Very in-your-face licorice nose and flavor. The sharp soy-saucey astringent flavor never really goes away, which is similar to many imperials. Some espresso is evident, as well as alchohol, but not overwhelming. Fairly tasty, but would be lightyears better with a more rounded mouthfeel.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2003
This oatmeal stout pours a pitch black color with a small, tan colored head. Malty, roasty aroma of coffee and roasted malts with a touch of hops. Full body with low carbonation and a soft, very creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is strongly oaty with lots of roasted malt and chocolate flavors bouncing around. The hops show up some in the finish, along with more coffee and big chocolate notes. Great stout, very flavorful and extremely smooth.

jsquire (3464) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Dark red/brown with a thin tan head. Nose of roast coffee and something that reminded me of laundry soap. Very smooth on the tounge, like I expected from the oatmeal. Slightly dusty fruit flavors of apple and pear with molasses sweetness. There is something artificial in the finish. Decent stout overall.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Very nice coal black color,small darker tan head that dissipated ina medium slow way but left a bit of lacing behind as it went.Roasted aroma with hints of chocolate and coffee to go with it,and maybe a slight hop presence but it's hard to detect unless you look hard for it.The flavor is mildly coffee with a medium chocolate and roasted taste slightly alcoholic in taste as well with a slight nutty taste thrown in.The after taste is roasted,chocolate and mild coffee with a definate alcohol tinge to it.This is a mildly sweet brew with alot of alcohol seeming to come through in the taste and after taste.IMO it's nothing special except for the trial basis and little more then that.

TAR (2490) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Clear dark cherry. Quick light tan foam. Roasty, borderline burnt aroma. Hints of medicine, cheese, hazelnut, tar, and licorice. Velvety, jellyish mouthfeel. Very earthy and roasty flavors with hints of toasty oats, concord grape, and cardboard. Slightly oxidized. More focus on the caramel sweetness and less emphasis on the fruity aspects and we’d have a decent stout.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2003
Rich chocolate, molasses, burnt malts, licorice, vanilla, coffee. Dark black clear with no head. Medium-heavy watery body & medium carb. Taste is pretty mellow. A little sweet up front, some burn. Finish is actually a little smoky & sour, with a smoky chocolate bitter after. A decent stout.

PorterPounder (5538) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Nice dark black appearance with a thin eggnog colored head - no lacing. Not as syrupy sweet as some sweet stouts and not as much body either - a bit watery. Has some chocolate notes with a bit of caramel sweetness thrown in for good measure. Middle of the road stout.

Aurelius (4171) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2003
A very drinkable stout. Lots of coffee in the mouth and something sprucey and mildly jagged in the hop department. An odd turn in the back palate, a little watery, again the edgy bittering in the back of the palate. Attempts at fruitiness at times, fairly dry. Clear and almost black.
