Thank you Tom/After4ever. It’s black with a red hue and a huge, creamy, light brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, light vanilla and oak. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, light vanilla and oak before it ends with a slightly burnt bitterness and a citrussy dryness. It could have been stronger in the oak note and could have been more complex, but I like it anyhow!

pours near black with brown around the edges. nice chocolate, roasted grain, and coffee aroma. evident, but not overdone. palate is smooth, dry, medium bodied...somewhere between a traditional oatmeal & imperial stout. heavy roasted flavors, rasisins, milk chocolate/cocoa, coffee, and some wood, before a bittersweet hoppy chocolate finish. good stuff."

DocLock (9984) - 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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2014
22oz shared by beerpig317. Very dark brown color. Thin off white head. Good dots of lace. Bigger body. Smooth soft lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Nice milk, Chocolate, creaminess.. Light oak. Moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet. Good oat character. As a whole an OK oak aged stout, little rough right now, not very well rounded. Light metallic

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Tap. Very dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and wood. Thinner palate. Taste is a little bit subtle - mild coffee and chocolate. Good, but not spectacular.

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
On tap @ Radio Maria. Nitro creates a thick beige foam pad atop a near black body. Faint aroma of sweet roast. Creamy, roasty palate with notes of coffee, vanilla, chocolate. Mildly bitter finish, creamy mouthfeel. Very good.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Roasted bitterness and chocolate sweetness merge into coffee bean notes in this slender and drinkable Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the brown-sleeved black.
-The barrel presence is subtle, which is appreciated.
-The finishing bitterness is quite roasty, but also hoppy and peppery.
-I did not find it plump enough for my tastes in the style.

Bottle.

Tap at HDG. Black colour with a thick tan head. Fairly hoppy aroma. Resiny hops and roasty dark chocolate. Flavour is also quite hoppy. Thinnish body but with lots of roasted malt bitterness and plenty of dry-hopped character. Very herbal bitterness. An unusual beer, but it works pretty well.
