DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Turbid dark brown pour with 2-fingers of khaki head. Aroma of roasty dark malt, chocoff, hops, molasses, some funky notes, and some mild assy latexy aroma. Tastes dark malty, with dark choc, coffee, brown sugar, almonds, and blackstrap molasses. Fairly dense palate that stays malty and dark oatmealy chocolatey throughout.

valpoaj (623) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Tasting at Holiday Beerfest in Omaha: Pitch black pour; nice off white head. Malty aroma with roasted nuts in here too. Sweet oatmeal flavor with malty chocolate in the background. Bitter finish...not much note of the oak however. Overall a good drink!

adrian910ss (2348) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2007
22 oz bomber. Pours a cola black with a creamy medium sized beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, oatmeal, baking chocolate, and cola. Taste is of roasted malts, bitter baking chocolate, oatmeal, nuts and a very slight hint of oak. Not a bad stout, but lacking the oak flavors.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Pours an insanely dark black-brown color. Small tan head forms and then fades away all too rapidly. Aroma is roasted, with some unsweetened coccoa, smoke, an occasional whif of leather, and a slight raisin component. Maybe the slightest hint of vanilla, an a kiss of the oak. The flavor is a bit muted up front, but finishes with a decent roasted flavor. Needs a touch more body, it just seems a bit lean on the palate.

rocbyter (1896) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Coffee and fruity malt aroma. Very dark brown color with a small dark tan head. Initially smooth then quickly turning bitter. Finishes with a smoky wood bitterness. Average stout palate.

TomDecapolis (4470) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Thanks to Axilla. Pours a deep brown with some amber notes and a medium creamy/bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of coffee, caramel, some chocolate lightly toasted malts. Flavor of chocolate, lightly roasted malts, hints of oak and a touch of vanilla.

22 oz bottle. Pours medium brown color with big tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt and wood. The taste was the same with sweet coco flavors and weird wood notes. Decent brew.

Draft. This beer is a dark chocolate in color with a cocoa head. The aroma is of chocolate, yeast, and a touch of oak. The oak aging adds a nice smokey character to the flavor, otherwise it is a fairly sweet, creamy oatmeal stout.
