deaconmike (329) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2013
On tap at Taco Mac. Almost black with ruby tint at the edges. Big thick creamy tan head that persists. Lots of nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. Nice malty flavor, not overly sweet; some bitterness and dryness kicks in as well. Body is creamy, but also slghtly on the light side. This beer goes down smooth. Overall, a very enjoyable stout.

Nitro tap at SFTR. Dark brown with a silky tan head. Nose is dusty coffee, brown sugar, cocoa and light smoke. Creamy medium body with a soft buzz. Taste is coffee, oatmeal and brown sugar. Solid oatmeal stout; lovely on nitro.

On nitro. Black with creamy beige head. Roasted coffee aroma and oats. Very smooth beer. Coffee taste, beer is thin and a little watery. Very good though.

Opaque, fine foamy top. Thin texture, light body, dry, little flavor, short palate, watery finish. Dark roast coffee flavor. Very disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chucklemation (318) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2014
Pours a jet black color with a very foamy, long-lasting white head. Smells of roasted malts. Taste is sweet roasted malts and some lightly bitter chocolate. Goes down smooth and cold. Makes me think of a sweeter, fuller version of Guinness. Very good.

flatmatt (1025) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
On tap at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Pours a deep brown with a nice airy light tan head. Roasty malt aroma and smooth roasty coffee flavor with cocoa and vanilla, kind of that classic oatmeal stout blend. A pretty nice one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a black color with a large foamy dark tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was chocolate, vanilla, a bit of coffee and a touch of roasty malts. The flavor was roasty, dry and bitter with notes of coffee, cream and a hint of chocolate. Long dry, roasty and bitter finish. Medium body. Ok.
