Bomber. Pours a deep dark black color with a java head. Nose is oats, malt and chocolate. Taste is sweet chocolate, oats and mild espresso, and is thick and full of flavor. Finish is sweet and ends on the same tasting notes. Nice drinkable "sipper ’ stout. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Pours pitch black with a brown head and aroma of sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Sweet chocolate notes come right though with oats, roasted malt, lingering smoky notes, and coffee with a sweet, chocolate finish. Delicious, very drinkable stout

Very enjoyable stout. Toast texture, molasses flavour, far more hops impact than typical stout, but retaining the richer mouthfeel and aroma of a good stout. Worth trying. Several times.

Dark and velvety, head is a little too frothy. Aroma wafts from the pour, semi sweet chocolate and roast grains. Taste is smooth and slick, minor bitterness, but mellow, rich flavor. This is really, really good stuff.

22 ounce bottle thanks to umich03jm. Thanks! Pours a viscous black with a thick, oatmeal colored head of foam. Pretty nice Webby lacing. In the aroma I get hazelnut, coffee, oats. It has a smooth coffee and cream flavor in the taste. A light earthy bitterness throughout and finishes a little on the sweet creamy side. Oily mouthfeel.

Picked up a bottle while in Seattle. One of my bigger wants in this trip. An all around good stout. Definitely want more.

A thick creamy head tops this deep dark beer. Citrus hops do not overpower the roasted malt aroma. Full smooth mouthfeel from the oats and lots of chocolate for a sweet finish. Very nice.

Tap at The Elysian A black pour with a beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes similar, roasty, malty, slight chocolate, rich, smooth and very easy drinking. Great stout.
