This was an interesting find at a roadside liquor store in Kokomo, Indiana. My first impression was that this is very reminiscent of the Dark Horse stouts- it pours very dark (but not so "molassesy" as Dark Horse stouts) with a large tan to light brown head. Nice complexity in the aroma- licorice, toasty sweet malt, molasses, and bourbon. Bourbon comes up big in the flavor too, with woody, vanilla notes that complement some sweet roast and licorice. Also had a slightly smoky flavor. Very good but needs a bulkier body and a denser palate to reach excellence.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2004
Very dark brown, blackish with a brown head. The aroma was complex, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and burbon. A somkeyness fills the mouth and lingers contributing to a very nice full feeling. It’s also sweet early rolling to a roasted flavor and then a mild bitterness. The burbon isn’t noticable at first, but when it comes it provides very nice character.

temporrari (380) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2004
Pours black as night with a very nice dark brown head. Perfect lacing. Aroma starts off with a lot of whiskey. Almost too much. Flavor is the same. Once it warms up a bit, some other complexities come through and it really is a nicely rounded oatmeal stout. I'd say the best oatmeal stout I've had. Better than Sam Smiths or Youngs IMO. If you see it, pick it up. I'm glad I did. Bought it at Kahn's Fine Wines in Carmel, IN just north of Indy.
