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

On tap at the brewery, pours black with a weak nose and excellent flavor. Very smooth and silky, coffee and chocolate flavors. Good beer.

After being very impressed with the hopalicious, I was slightly disappointed with this brew...it was good but unremarkable. Aroma slightly roasty but not terribly complex. Not completely flat but tending towards that direction. Although the beer was good at first, it became a little heavy upon getting to the end of the glass. Although the alcohol content is well-masked, I wonder if this had something to do with the heavy quality of this brew. I know this isn’t supposed to be the hoppiest style, but I would have appreciated more bitterness and crispness. A little dry, but I would have appreciated more dryness as well. An okay beer, I’d drink it again but I’d try something else instead if given the choice.

tmoreau (2570) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Enjoyed out on the patio, and poured black/brown to a shaker, with thick, dark tan foam to the head, and lasting, clingy curtains of lacing. The aroma was very roasty, with coffee and cocoa notes, and a light hint of smoke/wood. Adding a complimentary amount of hop bitterness, the flavor was very similar, the body was full, the mouthfeel presented a nice, smooth creaminess, and the finish was on the dry side. Very nice as my final, dessert pint!

Very dark brown almost black, dark baker’s chocolate, head depletes to a ring. Smell is coffee and chocolates, not much sweetness or malt. Taste is fairly bitterfor an oatmeal stout with chocolates, and roast malt flavor, oatmeal is there but not a major player.

A really enjoyable stout. Had this at the Ale Asylum brewery in Madison, WI which is a fanstastic place to have some great brews and some pretty good food. Dark color pour with nice tan head, nice lacing, smell of coffee, chocolate. Good beer!

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!
