This is a great big stout. Reminds me of a double chocolate chunk oatmeal cookie. I canít wait to head back there and drink this one again.

Big is an understatement! This is Black beauty! Rich Dark Brown...almost Black/Opaque pour with semi dry to curiously sweet malt character. Very Roasty with burnt edges and enjoyable flavors of chocolate, Coffee/Toffee elements. Thank you...may I have another!

Good beer. Walks an interesting line between a dry and sweet stout. The flavor profile is quite good, lots of nice bitter roast and some solid chocolate. The mouthfeel is fine, but not as rich as I would hope in a beer brewed with oatmeal. Overall, though, a very solid take on the style.

On draft at the brewpub. For some reason I always think that I donít like this beer as much as I should and every time I try it I am a big fan.

Very good but not up with the best: not as thick and creamy. Drier and slightly bitter

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pint at the new brewery. Pours a dark coffee brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, chocolate, mild coffee, brown sugar, oats, maple, and nuts. Flavor of milk chocolate, mild roast, sweet toasted nuts, oats, and cream. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a sweet, toasty mouthfeel thatís a little sticky at the end. Well done. Just to style.

Has some big bold coffee roast and chocolate scents. Taste is similar to the scent, but the roast comes out in a big way, gives it a little smokey character.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brewpub with ck1, thanks bro! Pours a very dark, dark brown with a surprising fine carbonation. Aroma has a nice sweet semi-burnt malt smell, with chocolate, molasses and charcoal. Taste brings sweet oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, molasses and some lactose. Quite thick. Finishes dry and much quicker than I expected. Mostly sweet in the end. Rivaled Hopalicious as best at the brewery, I thought.

Slick. Slightly sweet. Nutty earthy aromas. Roast notes are low but this beer is just wonderful.
