COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after a surly friend of the brewery, this one is smooth and creamy and includes English toasted wheat, roasted barley & oats. In many parts of the world, stout is an aphrodesiac.

Poured on draft. Pours a darker brown with a khaki colored head of foam. Aroma is roasty and sweet with some Oreo characteristics. Semi creamy mouthfeel. Reminds me of dirt pie, the shit with oreos crumbled up in a vanilla pudding and chocolate pie crust. Nice stuff.

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Draft in a sampler at Barley’s #1. Pours a cloudy, dark coffee brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, cream, chocolate, and toasted sugar. The flavor follows the same lines closely. Medium-bodied, with a malty, roasty mouthfeel and bitterness at the end. Medium carbonation. Solid oatmeal stout.

GJF (1271) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Solid, but safe, oatmeal stout. Very black pour, cocoa colored head. No real aroma to it, but a smooth malty flavor and a sharp roasty finish.

Sample at the Alehouse. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Coffee nose with some cream and sweet malt. Sweet malt flavor with vanilla, chocolate and a coffee finish.

Draft@ Barleys Pours a deep dark brown with a decent tan head. This one laces excellently. Has a good roasted coffee aroma. Has a decent amount of carbination. The flavor was good. Has touches of chocolate and heartiness. Has a thick texture and a full body. Did not seem to be high ABV. Has a solid finish, and good aftertaste. Overall I liked this one a lot.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Tap @ Alehouse: Pours a very dark brown with lighter brown highlights, ring of tan head. The aroma has a nice roastiness to it and smells a bit like burnt sugar. Flavor is scalded milk, rich chocolate malts, some dark chocolate and chicory coffee. There is a little bit of toasted caramel malt in there as well. Finishes like a dark coffee roast. A bit bitter.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2008
Objectively speaking: A brown, sweet and globally nondescript stout saying soft in every fashion.
I like: Can’t blame it of being agressive. Rather large initial head, though it quickly fades. Minimal coffee roastiness.
I dislike: No filling oatmeal presence, light-bodied and rather watery. Sweet, almost sugary palate never gets sufficient roastiness to be balanced. Blatant lack of depth for a beer scoring above 3.5.

Aurelius (4365) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Dark, of course. Sweet, milky roast aroma. Sweet, a bit vacant in the middle, toasty and fruity. Fairly heavy body, but silky and watery at times. Sweet finish.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Opague with a tan creamy head and lace. Burnt coffee with a bit of chocolate. A medium bodied beer with good carbonation. Pretty solid body just off a tick on body and flavor. Close to being a damn fine beer.
