Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle. Poured very dark brown and opaque with a light tan head. Aromas of chocolate malt, coffee, caramel, and some hops. Flavor is sweet, with a subtle bitterness and a very prominent earthiness (dirt, tree bark). Somewhat carbonated and a pretty thin body. Not bad, but there are better examples out there.

WLG423 (201) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Dark almost black body with a small caramel colored head. Sweet coffee aroma with a slight hint of chocolate. The aroma is comfortable and not over powering. Body is incredibly light for such a dark beer with an almost sudsy mouth feel with abundant carbonation. Feels almost like a generic cola. Flavor is incredibly subuded despite the stronger aroma; slight notes of coffee and caramel come through with a slight oat flavor. Finishes out quickly with a slightly bitter taste.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with no date or lot code noticed. The pour is a quick brown with a thin tan head so it looks pretty average for a stout. The aroma is sweeter with a background of oatmeal, wheat, and roasted coffee grinds. The mouthfeel is rather thin for a stout which came as a disppoinment. But the flavor does not totally disappoint as it is a gestalt of sweetness, chocolate malts, and neutral hops. A halfway decent oatmeal stout.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a black body with a tan head. Thin sweet and simple, chocolate malt, oats, caramel but thin and some light milk sugars. Decent beer.

addictedavi (4) - New York, USA - AUG 30, 2009 does not count
Out of a 12oz bottle, pours appropriately opaque. Quickly subsiding head leaves thin lacing and aroma of caramel and oatmeal. The mouthfeel is too thin for my preference, but there’s a good amount of carbonation. Caramel malts are dominant in the taste but I also like the little bit of roasty, bitter cocoa powder I found. Aftertaste is of caramel. It’s not a bad or unpleasant beer; it’s drinkable, with enough nuance to keep your attention.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Bottle: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a thin, clingy-lacing light tan head. Has a sweet toasty caramel nose with a touch of milk chocolate and hazelnuts. Starts with good fullness and semi-sweet dark maltiness with some light roasty notes and pleasant bitter balance toward a slightly drier toasty finish. A pretty drinkable and true to style sweet stout.

jredmond (5966) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2009
On draft at the Brewpub. Pours pitch black body with small brown head. Aroma is some chocolate malt. Taste is roast and deliciousness, I wish I was in better shape at the time to try more of this sucker.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
On tap. Pours dark black with thick head. The chocolate and oatmeal definitely show through. Nice full body. Still not quite as good as Samuel Smith’s, but very good.

draft- this was appearently the beer to go to considering its award winning status, but I found it to be not good at all- very one dimensional in the way of harsh bitterness and dark mollasses- not much else going on- virtually no aroma.
