This is the first time Iíve seen this season beer at the brewery. Itís 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. Itís flavor is best described as simple and flat. Nothing going on here. I enjoy a good stout and itís 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 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 didnít really have me jumping out of my seat but it grew on me slowly but surly.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
