Best beer I’ve ever had. Period. Pairs perfectly with desserts. Poured under nitro, which gives it an incredibly smooth taste. Absolutely delicious!

Great deep brown pour, brown head. Creamy and delicious! The oats give this tremendous body, good lactose sweetness, milk chocolate, toasted nuts.

BeerKurve (488) - - NOV 14, 2013
Pours a pitch black color with a thin brown head, no lacing and light carbonation. Nose of roasted barley, oatmeal, chocolate, malts and some mild hops. Flavor has a sweeter malty chocolate & oatmeal taste with some caramel-toffee maltiness and mild hoppiness. Body is moderate but with some thickness and the carbonation is fairly mild. Pretty creamy and tasty!

jcr (2185) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Draft. Deep brown/black body. Frothy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate. Hint of coffee and floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/slick texture, lively carbonation. Rich and nicely balanced. It expertly avoids the saccharin sweetness of lesser made sweet stouts that are this rich.

Included in a sampler at the brewpub. This was definitely my favorite from the sampler. Very earthy flavors, nice mouthfeel, well done.
