Bottle. Pours black with very little head and lacing. Mild aroma of coffee and chocolate and some dark fruit. Taste is a little coffee and chocolate and plum or prune. Good but tastes more like a porter.

Excellent! Appearance is a thick velvety tan head that lasts forever; lots of lace and an opaque brown black color. Aroma at first is just dry dark roasted coffee and then the mall to comes on and I pick up more of vanilla and Cocoa and toffee. Flavor is like aroma; carbonic Tang is upfront but toned down there's a bit of sweetness but also tonedown; lovely beer. Body is perfect.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 On tap at Ale Asylum. Pours black with a thick chocolate colored head. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, toffee, roasted malt. Flavor of rich liquor-laden chocolate syrup, dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla. SO chocolatey! It is like dessert in a glass. Not the artificial tootsie roll chocolate either- rich dark chocolate and dark chocolate fudge. Heavenly.

Sample at the brewpub. Inky black color with a medium creamy tan head that dissipates steadily to a wispy film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with a strong charred malt character and notes of coffee and cocoa. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the brewpub. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, cream, milky sweetness, roasted dark malts, touch of the oatmeal and a faint hint of yeast esters. Largely black in color with a lasting, creamy, fine, khaki head. Flavor profile is a touch sweet, more chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and some faint bubblegum/banana, very faint bitterness and dark breadiness appearing at the finish, some bittersweet aspects throughout. Smooth and fairly hefty in feel, body is full as well. A rather proper Oatmeal Stout, all in all.
