COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A decadent Oatmeal Stout brimming with cocoa and espresso aromas. This beer features a rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish. The addition of U.S. grown fuggles hops contributes the perfect amount of bitterness to this exceptionally balanced beer.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2011 Rerate:must have had a bad bottle the first go around. Much better this time around. creamy milk chocolate, nice roasty bite. pretty tasty.

old rate: Bottle! ruby highlights. big frothy tan head. initial aroma is a slightly muddled dark chocolate, molasses, coffee, and hazelnut medley. also some earthy butterscotch. smells like a grandmas house. flavor has more of a roasted, earthy, grainy, butter presence. some faint vanilla. not gettin much bourbon. wanted to love this, as i’ve loved some past FW beers and a nice roasty stout under 6% would be right up my alley, but this didn’t quite do it for me. maybe i had an off bottle?

Pint at Brouwer’s. Darkest brown with thinning greyish head. Body is mild oatmeal, some smokiness and sweet grains. Smooth and full flavored but body is a bit lighter than I’d hope. Too used to the Imps. this is a tasty, well made stout.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2012 Had this on tap and didn’t really care for it. Had it from the bottle and much better. From the bottle ~Rich dark chocolate bready aroma with fresh roasted coffee. ~Pours black with big lasting creamy brown head. ~Both milk and dark chocolate flavors with bready malts and roast. Well balanced. ~Medium bodied with medium CO2, Pleasing roasty finish. ~Great oatmeal stout. Glad I was able to try this from the bottle. On draft at the brewery was way too roasty. On tap at Firestone Walker rating 2.7 ~Strong coffee aroma, roasted, charred, dark chocolate malts. ~Pours black with ruby highlights. Small disappearing head. ~Roasty, charred black malts, coffee, some chocolate, too charred. ~Med full body, med CO2, roasted slightly astringent finish. ~Too much roasted malt on this one, Astringency from roasted grain. Needs to be aged longer in the barrel before serving or use less roasted malt.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 25, 2010
Colour:...dark. Nose: Burnt crisp malt, honey infusion - could be the bourbon influence, driftwood, jerk spice. Taste: Cherry cough syrup, burnt wood, late bitter-tart with all spice. Great stuff. A mixed-bag aroma that actually works!

presario (4656) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
Tap at Brouwer’s on a mild day on the patio. This was my favourite beer tried over 4 days through BC and Washington. Black with a light brown head. Black coffee, licorice toffee flavour with a rich body that almost seemed to have tasty sweetness bits hidden inside.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Tap at Belmont Station. First off, even though I understand why they’re changing the name as they bottle it, I think it’s a little silly. After all, Caldera named a beer "Vas Deferens" and bottled it, is this really any worse. That aside, the beer pours an appetizing dark brown with a 2 finger tan head and spotty lacing. Smells of coffee, vanilla, chocolate and oats with a flavor that pretty much replicates the aroma. Medium in body, this was one that was easy to drink.

Dark brown with a medium to large deep beige and creamy head. Aroma had hard roasted malt, dark chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Flavour had burned malt, dark chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Sweet and full bodied. What a nice session stout.

A damn fine beer, I would drink it until my liver gave way. Nothing offensive at all, just beer bliss. Would get again fo sho. i liked it more than the saucerfull, more chewy body, less boozy, less confusing on the pallet.

[2985-20100627] Tap. Boozy coffee grounds aroma is all roasted malt. Clear, dark dark red brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Smooth coffee stout ground and heavy roast malt flavour has a lingering aftertaste. Full body is surprisingly smooth. Nice stout, thick and luscious.
