tmoreau (2528) - 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!

sunnyridge (222) - USA - APR 12, 2010
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!

madvike (2786) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Thick, brownish head sits atop this oil-black stout. Nose is chocolate and a whiff of coffee. Flavor is roasted malt, no coffee taste though. Very solid, smooth stout.

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.
