Coffee, smoke, and dark toast on the nose. Black, thin beige head. Full body. Coffee with blueberry accents, alkaline and neither sweet nor dry. Finishes with an aspirin-like bitterness that is rather off-putting. Intriguing.

Nice dark roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Flavor is dark roasted malt and some bitter chocolate. Flavor is big but not overwhelming. Easy to drink. Great beer.

Pours near black. Medium, creamy brown head. Aroma is roasty, bittersweet chocolate, licorice, bit of coffee, some caramel, vanilla and oats. Flavor follows with Lighter full body, little slick, creamy, fairly soft. Bittersweet. Very nice balance. Super smooth and very drinkable. Finish has a great roasty character. Bitterness is low, and it works well.

scotchzombie (326) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2014
From 12 oz bottle. Pours very dark brown just about black with an awesome rich tan head that is sense and foamy with large bubbles lacing the glass. Aroma is wood, coffee, nuts. Taste is sweet roasted grains, chocolate, coffee and brown sugar. Fair amount of bitter aftertaste. Semi-thick and dry on the palate. A bit thin when all is said and done, but a solid oatmeal stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of semisweet and dark chocolate. Roasted coffee and espresso. Heavy cream, toast, licorice and hints of sugar as well. Creamy feel.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Pour is pitch black with a small brown head. Lots of oatmeal on the nose, milk chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla, and dark coffee. Very dry taste, good oatmeal notes, dates, caramel, mocha, dark bitter coffee, and a slight amount of spice. Nice stout, feels like it’s missing something to me though. More coffee or chocolate maybe?

Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown Colorado withoutva head. The aroma is coffee and the taste is mocha with a strong roasted coffee flavor that resonates on the palate
