This is the first time I’ve seen this season beer at the brewery. It’s a far cry from a Samuel Adams Oatmeal Stout. Good creamy head and retention. Aroma was very malty with a mouth watering apperance. Still, it came up very short in flavor. It’s flavor is best described as simple and flat. Nothing going on here. I enjoy a good stout and it’s lackluster flavor and overly bitter/burnt finish left a lot to be desired.

Draft sample at BB. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted bittersweet flavor with a bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good beer.

on nitro-pours black with a tight retaining tan head that laces. Aroma is roasty dark malt-chocolate, some earthy. Taste is smooth roasty dark malt-chocolate, nutty, 2nd earthy hops. Semi-drying finish. Good carbonation for a nitro pour. Better as it warms.

On draft at Big Bear. Dark black color with a creamy beige head. Aroma is dominated mostly by the malt with slight hints of chocolate. The flavor didn’t really have me jumping out of my seat but it grew on me slowly but surly.

Ibrew2or3 (6910) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Tried on tap at the Florida Brew Fest 2011 addition. It pours mahogany with deep red edges and micro thin mocha head. The aroma offers up firm earthiness and dark roasted malts as well as light amounts of dark fruity esters, burnt malts and chocolate brownie. The taste is as expected, pretty darn smooth and creamy, and ushering in a mix of toffee, highly roasted malts, burnt malts, chocolate brownie and then earthiness. It stays pretty chocolaty into the finish helping to create a pleasing experience.

Poured jet black with thick creamy tan head. Nose was big roasty malts, earthy, ash, hints of smoke and burnt coffee. Flavor was crisp bitter roast, oats, earthy hops and grains, hints of bitter chocolate. Nice full body. Finished with a bite.

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Mild, muted creosote aroma. Opaque black. Nitro version, this. Dry, milky coffee flavor. Light hazelnut. Tartish finish. Medium body. Lingering coffee. Simplistic, drinkable, but not very remarkable.
