Derek881 (1236) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2008
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. The aroma was heavy with malt, mostly chocolate character, with some lighter coffee and caramel notes, and a touch of hops. A thick, black color with a creamy, dark tan head that had average retention and size. Sweet, malty and chocolate/coffee-like flavor, with some bitterness for balance. The palate was a little bit too watery, with average carbonation, but some good fizz; a creamy, wetter mouthfeel. Definitely a very solid oatmeal stout, but falls short of some of my favorites.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Smoky malt, coffee, and chocolate aroma. Sweet , light malty flavor. A little thin on the palate for a stout. A little hop bite on the finish. A stout for the masses that dont really like stouts.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 30, 2008
22oz bottle. Black with a thick tan head. Chocolate and roast, oatmeal and some smoke in the nose. The flavor is smooth, sweet, and finishes with a nice middle intensity roasted bitter finish. The oats give a nice fullness, but the body stays on the lighter, drinkable side. Plenty of dark chocolate flavors, but no harsh burnt malt notes. Good stuff for the most part, but the finish is just slightly watery and thin, with a disconnected lingering sweetness that has a creamy flavor with it.

Praetorian (86) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Black in color with a medium sized, light brown head with little lacing. The aroma is of turkish coffee, chocolate, oak, and molasses. The flavor is suprisingly sweet throughtout with notes of molasses, coffee and chocolate. The palate is watery. It’s not a bad stout, but the texture was a big let down and I felt the flavor was somewhat bland...decent I guess, but nothing special.

thornecb (5364) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2008
Pours dark ebony into an English pint. Long lasting mocha head leaves spot lacing as it recedes to coat surface. Dusty cocoa aromas. Sour cherry and musk from front to back. Lasting chocolate finish.

RedSox2004 (1590) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Opaque black, just a hint of ruby red around the edges. Minimal head and lacing. Pronounced mocha and espresso aromas, roasted malts and a hint of ash. Malt sweetness hits first, with a sense of hops bitterness that creeps in then goes away. Coffee and chocolate are clear, but there’s little evidence of oats. Full bodied, no carbonation to speak of, and the malt sweetness outlasts any hops in the finish. Very nice stout.

Vaiz (4184) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle at home. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasty malts and corn syrup. Flavor is somewhat grainy, roasted and quite sweet. Some bitterness as well. Still a decent balance. Well drinkable and a nicely thick body.

Boa Stout. Preta, bem escura, espuma cremosa, coloração café com leite. Muito cremosa, cheiro bem opaco de maltes torrados. Grãos torrados, caramelo. Retrogosto torrado e suavemente amargo. Cerveja amarga. Boa.
