COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full body and a well rounded flavor comes from a foundation of nine different grains. The oats add a special silky texture that complements the roasted malts. The rich malty flavor is spiced with plenty of Northern Brewer and Fuggles hops for balance.

Bottle thanks to GCurlow
Dark brown, rich cream-colored head. Nose of oat, lightly green, ashy coffee and very faint hops in grapefruit. Flavor is sweeter and simpler, creamy oats and milk chocolate at the front, lightly burnt grain at the back. Faintly bitter finish, creamy decently thick body with faint carbonation that adds to the profile but doesn’t cloud it. The sweetness is pretty tame here, which is good because there isn’t much balance from hop or grain bitterness. The nose is a bit rough, but overall it’s easy to drink and enjoy rather than savor.

Bottle thanks to Eugene. Pours a very dark brown color with a small white head. A ashy chocolate nose, light metal. The flavor is somewhat thin; sweet cocoa, metal, light hops, ash, pretty good. A little thin for the style but nice.

Clear and very dark. Floral dark malt aroma. Like a thick brown ale. Sweet cherry noates, clingy mouth. Recommended. Tap, Flying Saucer, Kansas City.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Tap @ Free State. Dark brown color pour. Aroma of roast, distant coffee, some molasses. Very complex flavor. Not what I expected. Roast, bread, coffee, woody hops. Nice bitter finish. Very good. Lots of hop character in the finish. Woody.

drowland (7868) - Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Had on tap at the brewpub while visiting the university. Smooth and creamy, but not deep, complex, or roasty enough. Has a smokey-bacon type flavor... on purpose? Doubtful.

Growler from Kerrianne our wayword son, the Lawrence drug mule, with many thanks. Superb traditional oatmeal stout nose with lots of chocolate and oats. Taste is very smooth with almost no viscosity. Great back-end taste profile. I can feel my cholesterol going down as I type.

kosko20 (352) - Bemidji, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Black pour with brown tint, tan head with beautiful lacing. Aroma is the norm of roasted malts of coffee, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor starts sweet, finishes bitter. Unfortunately, this had a metallic aftertaste but at least it didn’t linger...velvety and smooth otherwise.
