COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copious amounts of dark and sweet malt give our stout aromas of coffee and a rich mouthfeel with a dry finish.

Draft at Ale Asylum, where else. Murky black with half-finger of light brown head. Nose is roasted chocolate malts, with hints of coffee and sweet cream. Straightforward taste: more chocolate, roasted coffee, with a hint of nuttiness and smooth oatmeal texture. The thicker mouthfeel is really what sets this apart from, say, NG Road Slush. Pretty great.

hombrepalo (1833) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2012
6oz sample. Pitch black pour with a khaki head. Nose is sweet malts, chocolate, roasted malts, and light oat. Excellent on the palate, oat, roasted malts, chocolate, and a lightly sweet finish.

arkurzynski (1544) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Deep, pillowy black. Soft roast/coffee, milk, heavy cream, cocoa powder. Clean roasted malt, cocoa, toffee, light brown sugar, lactose-esque sweetness. Great medium+ mouthfeel from the oatmeal. Lives up to its name of being a little slick, with great roast residual hanging on.

kbutler1 (1353) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Draft. Pint glass poured a dark brown/black color with a nice 1 finger, thick tan head. Slightly roasty coffee aroma but otherwise not an overly strong nose. Medium mouthfeel. Dark fruit and slight roast coffee. Pretty smooth. Slight sweetness. A little booze notes in the end. Nice lace. Overall, a decent nice drinking stout.

Sammy (8774) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2011
On tap at the Good stout, coffee aroma. Very dark brown coloured body with a thin head. Rich, smooth, chocolate malts. More coffee than chocolate. A good one for coffee fans, and even I, not a coffee regular, was fine with it. Above average mouthfeel.

BVery (6633) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. Black pour, really frothy light cream head. Slight/moderate coffee and cream nose. Full and rich creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, terrific. Taste is chocolate, cream, oat, and not very much roasty bitterness at all. Delicious!

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2011
On tap at Genna’s Lounge in Madison, WI. Notes only. Creamy with a big thick head; coffee, chocolate; an odd bitter off-flavor. One of my favorite styles, but definitely not my first choice.

Tmoney99 (10841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Tap sample. Poured a black color with a large fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark coffee and malt aroma. Medium to heavy dark chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy sweet coffee finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good rich beer.
