Pours black, great chocolate, nutty, espresso aroma. Roasted coffee bean and chocolate taste. This was one of the best stouts I’ve had the pleasure of drinking.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a 12 oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods Devon PA. No date. Drank from a mini snifter. Pours a semi clear dark brown. No head and no lacing. Very little aroma. What's there smells of Moxie.... And that's the way this review is going. Mouthfeel would be light for a porter, let alone an oatmeal stout. Pretty dry and watery too. Taste is of water, coffee, cola, dirt, styrofoam and something else I can't put my finger on but that doesn't belong in this beer. Wow was this poor. It was everything the description didn't say it'd be. PASS!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours black with some red around the edges. There is a small tan head that hangs around for awhile. The aroma has a good bit of coffee, some chocolate. The taste is sweet chocolate that flows into a mocha flavor.. and is finished with a nice hop bite. This is delicious and I can’t believe it has this much flavor at 5.5%.

A decent stout with no exemplary features. Good rostiness on the malt though

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black pour with a fleeting tan head. Smells faintly of espresso. Taste is creamy chocolate, nutty malt, and a bit of coffee. Also tastes a bit flat; finish is dry and abrupt.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 It is like... rich dark chocholate with hint of milk. A boozy bitter-sweet warmth not unlike amaretto. A full and balanced beer with a rather semi-sweet finish. Color is between velvet and coffee. The head is fleeting yet creamy and lacing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma has lots of espresso/coffee and roasted malts with a bit of chocolate. Body is medium with some carbonation. Mouthfeel is creamy. Taste is slightly sweet with a bitter finish. A very good, easily drinkable stout but not one of the great ones.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a dark brown with a quickly vanishing head. Taste of coffee, quick hit of smoked malt and bitterness but very hollow mouthfeel which ends with carbonation instead of taste.
