COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Creamy and substantial, this brew is bursting with the flavor of dark roasted grains. Oats add a soft velvety texture that blends well with the distinct malty flavor.

Weak in the small amount of aroma that I could smell. It had bite, hops, water, and notes of dark chocolate. I did not like this beer.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2007
On tap. A coffee malty aroma. A dark deep almost black pour. A sweet stout that was very dry to me. with a good bitter and a flavor of chocolate. A solid palate with good carbonation and mouthfeel. A solid stout but I didn’t get the sweet.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2007
On tap at the Knoxville Brewers Jam. Pours totally black with a small tan head. Pretty dry for a sweet stout, or so i thought. Some chocolate and coffee notes along with roasted malt. Not great, but the best of the lot I had from downtowin grill.

nearbeer (3435) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2009 Draft. Opaque black with a medium and lasting head. Aroma is peppery, woody, and metallic coffee. Flavor is coffee, charred wood with slight smoke, peppery metallic molasses and marshmallow. Palate is medium bodied, slightly watery and smooth. Dryish finish. Hops seem to dominate the malt a bit much, but a good beer nonetheless.

My favorite from their location in Knoxville. Pours a dark, dark brown with a tan head. Taste is a complex blend of roasted coffee, grains and some sweetness. Very nice.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Deep and dark with a nose of fire-roasted nuts. A bit of coffee on the palate set off by dark roasted grains and a bit of malt. All in all, a fair stout.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Draught at brewery. Pours dark brown, with a dark tan head. The appearance gives me hope, but the aroma lets me down. Some faint roastiness and oats pretty much sums it up. The flavor has some more qualities, like coffee, but as my girl noted, the coffee tatses like water sucked out of leftover coffee grounds.

allfreej (550) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 7, 2006
On tap at the Downtown Grill. Poured dark brown with ruby highlights and a dense brown head. Smoky, roasty coffee aroma. Flavor is smoky, coffee, toffee, caramel, and the finish is quite smooth and satisfying. An excellent stout. I can see why they always seem to run out and am glad to have finally had the chance to try it!
