Bottle @ Stephen’s house. Pours a dark brown appearance with a thin brown head. A bit of coffee along with a bunch of cocoa, dark chocolate, oatmeal, and vanilla. A bit twangy fruitiness from the coffee in the flavor. A lot of chocolate with a nice soft body. Pretty nice.

Tap at the brewpub. Jet black pour with an inch of tan foam. Smells of chocolate, oats, caramel, molasses. Tastes pretty much the same, perhaps a little more prominent oat flavor. Smooth and creamy, slides across the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. Pours glossy black with a medium thick tan head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Difficult to detect aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium, smooth body with flavors of coffee, dark malt and bittersweet chocolate. The finish is roasty with a short coffee aftertaste. Just average overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Eugene City Brewing (Rogue). Pours dark black with brown and red tones. Aroma is faint of roast, sweet malts, oats, and somewhere in there is a tart cherry. Flavors are much of the same with a lot of sweet malts in the mix. Smooth, semi-watery, but a good drinking sweet stout. Nice burnt roat lingers on the palate after sips!
