jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2008
2008-09-06. Black body with a modest tan/brown head. (4+) Flavour has sweet malty base with roasty bitterness that escalates in the finish where a pleasant roast mingles with just a kiss of anise undertones, and hints of alcohol. (7+) Aroma of mocha roast is rather nice. (7+) Average plus palate is smooth. (3+) On tap at the brewpub.

after4ever (6129) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Draft at Jake’s in Steilacoom. Pours absolutely jet black with a thick and creamy tan mousse up top. Not much lace. Nice big chocolate nose, very roasty, a little bit of anise there but not much. Gorgeous silky, creamy, thick mouthfeel, just a huge sedative of a stout. Nice big roasty body, soft sweetness from the oatmeal and then some chocolate notes. Unfortunately it’s amazingly hot and boozy for 5.4%; bits of acetic vodka creep through right near the end there.

AmEricanbrew (5840) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Black with a tan head. Mild roasty, nutty malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Rich flavors of roasted nuts with blackened malts and coffee. Nice easy drinking stout.

[1663-20080906] Tap. Chocolate roasted malt aroma. Clear, dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Smoothly roasted chocolate mocha malt flavour with a lingering sweetness. Full body has mild bitterness. Wonderful.

On draft at the brewpub 7/6/05: Dark black with a creamy consistency. An OK roasted malt and toasted nut topping on an ice cream feel. Very drinkable.

PorterPounder (5546) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Had on tap at the Resurrection Roadhouse in Seward, Alaska. Dark purple to opaque black appearance with a thick, creamy, mocha colored head. Coffee accented aroma with some licorice undertones. Bittersweet chocolate flavor permeates thoughout with a bit of hoppyh back end bite. Delicous to say the least. Creamy, silky mouthfeel. Looking forward to visiting this brewpub later this week in Anchorage.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pitch black coloured body with a thin tan head. Aroma of oatmeal (naturally), coffee and caramel. Full-bodied; Nice raisin and caramel sweetness in the taste with a touch of nuts and oatmeal. Aftertaste clean, mostly sweet with a touch of roasted malt. Overall, a decent oatmeal - on the lighter and sweeter side of the style, but still a decent beer and of course great to try. I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Anchorage, Alaska on 26-June-2010.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep brown with hints of amber and a medium bubbly lacing light tan head. Aroma of oats, chocolate and lactose. Flavor of roasted malts, coffee, some dark bitter chocolate and nice hop bitterness.

nearbeer (3724) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Draft at the pub. Black with creamy bubbles. Nose of coffee, caramel, cocoa. Flavors of mocha, graham cracker, and vanilla. A slightly ashy finish balances the lot nicely. Smooth, soft medium body is lightly watery and very sessionable.
