Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2010
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.

Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2010
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.

skoisirius (1760) - Earth, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2009
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!
