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

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.

From notes. Enjoyed at the Great Taste of the Midwest on August 08. At this point, Iím not going to lie, we were just trying to drink until they threw us out. The pour is a dark brown, near black, with a thick, lighter tan head and a couple pieces of lace. The aroma is full of roasted malt and chocolate with a bit of oat and some hints of coffee. I wish it were a little more aromatic, but itís late, and I might be drunk. The flavors are a little better. The chocolate is a little bitter, the roasted malts work well, and there is even a little caramel on the back end. Iím also getting some molasses mixed in there. The mouth feel is decently thick with a soft carbonation, but it does fall off of the tongue pretty quick. The aftertaste is lingeringly roasty with a little sweet molasses. Not bad.

Pours a dark brown almost black like oil with similar viscosity and nice khaki colored head. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, oats, and some light toffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied stout here. Finishes with coffee and chocolate, slight roastiness as well.

Pours opaque chocolate brown with a very thick light tan head. Rich aroma has notes of roasted malt, quality coffee, charred wood, and semi-sweet chocolate. Flavor has pleasing notes of sweet roast malt, chocolate, quality coffee and molasses. Mouthfeel has firm, smooth body and some decent fizz. Slick and big - enjoy.

Bottle. Poured very dark, almost black, very little head. Aroma is inviting. Flavor begins with an edge and lotís a tangy carbonation, but it smooths out with notes of chocolate, and mild coffee. A good stout, not too rich.

Very dark brown, very thin latte-colored head. Not tasting the coffee so much, this falls on the chocolate side of things. Pretty fair stout. Very smooth. Very little bitterness. Alcohol masked well. Maybe a little musty.
