Soft bite initially but smooth after taste in this full bodied stout. Pours nicely in to class from the bottle with minimal head. Aroma is pleasant as well.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out black, with a medium light tan head, leaves pretty fine lace. Smells like a cookie! Brown sugar, milk chocolate, some light vanilla, with that kind-of cookie like background note. Great full body with a deep and rich chocolaty tone, some more brown sugar, a touch of coffee, light molasses and light vanilla. Such a full flavor for a 5.4%! Has a bit of lactose-like sweetness as well, adding to the cookie quality. Sweet and dark, delightfully chocolaty!

The beer is quite frothy, and the head is a nice light tan color with the beer itself being black. The aroma is full of hints of dirt, dough, and toasted malts and is quite strong without being overpowering. The taste is quite nice, for it doesn’t shock your system; rather, the light yet hearty sweetness coats your taste buds with its light-medium body. Although the taste is easy, this is a solid dark beer that fades off your tongue smoothly.

12 oz bottle from Enniskillen. Nose is roasty nuttiness, plain old fashioned oatmeal, chocolate, plummy fruitiness, and a light vanilla note. Black with a good sized heavy lacing tan head. Flavor is of coffee, cocoa, very light caramel, oaty grassiness, and a bit of very light bitterness. All this complexity and flavor out of a 4.9% stout! This would be a goto beer if I could get it here.

Pours opaque brown-black with a smallish tan head. Aroma is standard stout, roasty, malty, coffee. Flavor is fairly typical as well, very well balanced, coffee and roastiness, a bit of hoppiness, a nice malt base. Palate is excellent, this is where the oats really come in to play, smoothing everything out very nicely. Overall a good oatmeal stout.

Has a great ’small-batch’ flavor to it. Not to toot my own horn, but it tasted VERY similar to a coffee stout I recently brewed. I still think their’s is better though.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich black color with some dark ruby highlights with a tannish small bubbly head that fizzes away quick. Smells of oats, roasted malt with some chocolate and burnt cookie caramel notes. The taste was a little on the light side for a stout that looked so dark, but is pretty good non the less. Lots of solid oats, slight caramel, roasted malts and some slightly burnt chocolate tones. Has a nice smooth feel with a sweet tang, caused by the chocolate and from a very small hop presence. This stuff ain't bad, I actually liked it alot and would drink it any old time.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 Pours a nice dark brown. Aromas of malts and chocolate. Flavors of oats, slight caramel, roasted malts and some slightly burnt chocolate tones. I wish they hadn’t retired this one.
