COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic oatmeal stout is big. From the thick, rich head to the light coffee aroma and flavor, to the long creamy finish, this beer is as big as a Madison winter is long.

Had on tap at the brewpub. This is one of my favorite of their beers - a really high quality stout with great flavors and a wonderful mouthfeel. I could drink this stuff all night!

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Black oily pour with a thin beige head, dissipates to a ring. Roast malt aroma. Flavor is roasty, with a slightly sweet mid-palate, some chocolate and smoked meat on the end. Smooth, full bodied, not terribly drinkable.

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Draft at Ale Asylum. Pours black with a beige head. Heavy carbonation. Aroma is roasted malts, with weak hints of oatmeal and chocolate. The taste very mild, with only the slightest notes of roasted malts and chocolate. Tasted more like nothing than anything. Very watery body makes this one very drinkable without being overly good. If it was cheaper and more readily available, it could be a good ’’get drunk and party’’ stout. Sad to say it, but i was very dissapointed.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2008
GTMW 2008: Nearly opaque with a slight creamy head and some oily legs. The aroma has notes of espresso, plum and blueberry esters, oatmeal and heavy toasted malts, and a earthy yeast nose. The taste is sweet malt supported by some dark fruit and a finish that is smooth coffee. A touch of Creme Brule as well. The mouth feel is sticky and medium to full-bodied. A very nice stout.

inkubus27 (269) - highland, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2008
2008 GTMW. Aroma of oats, coffee and roasted malts. Taste is much of the same and the oat silkiness is definitely noticed on the tongue. A pretty solid stout.
