Aroma is dark fruit, chocolate and a hint of oatmeal smoothness. The flavor is dark fruit, chocolate, malts and a mix of acidity and smoothness in the finish. Interesting, although I prefer oatmeal stouts that are smoother, the acidity took away some of that.

Black, no light coming through. Nice two finger fluffy head. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oak. Medium/full body feel. Overall a really solid and balanced oak aged stout! Cheers!

UncleKorm (894) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bomber bottle poured a clear dark brown hue w/ a mostly lasting creamy tan head and fair lacing. Heavy aroma of chocolate liquor, licorice, vanilla, and molasses. Initial flavor is a moderate sweet leading to a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are a dark roast, dark chocolate, vanilla, a subtle oak from the barrels, and brown sugar. Medium to full bodied, lively carbonation and a light alcohol dryness in the finish.

On nitro @5H in Davis Square, Boston. Brown pour, huge foamy cocoa head. Mild roast aroma, very creamy dark chocolate flavor- a bit bitter. So chewy!!! Like a milkshake. Cray cray.

Deep mahogany with almost no head. The aroma has an interesting mixture of chocolate covered raisin, licorice, and bubblegum. It has a medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. The taste is sweet up front with a more roasted finish.

On draught at Bailey’s Taproom. 2010 vintage. A deep, oxidized aroma. Hints of dark chocolate, oats, and almost a barrel aging. Well worth the try.

Great. Pours with carpet lacing, black with some clear ruby tinges. Aroma of booze, cereal, sugar and creamy consistency. Leave is sour and a little bitter. Good for oatmeal stout. Tap at Hopcat.
