3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and very creamy, chocolate milk colored head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is sweet and rich, milky and dark chocolates with a bit of a malted milk ball essence. A moderate amount of creamy roasts, a bit of a lactose sweetness, and touches of licorice. Flavor is similar. Creamy roasts and a nice mix of dark and milky chocolates that seem a bit accentuated by some lactose additions. A light ashy note, touches of licorice, smooth oats, and a light earthy bitterness as this finishes creamy and dry before leaving lengthy a aftertaste. Medium, smooth body and a soft, creamy, light carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid sweet stout. Rich, creamy, and roasty with a very soft, pleasant body. Nice beer.

Very solid, pitch black stout. Sweet without the taste of ham. Served on a nitrogen tap, which could have been better but otherwise good. Slight malty acric taste finishes.

Draft. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of chocolate as well as notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt and chocolate, leading to a dry roasted finish, where the roasted malt also lends it a slight acidity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The name sure is appealing... But it just doesn’t really size up. Aromas of coffee and chocolate are there but they are disappointingly mild. Flavors are on he sweet side. Body is creamy. Finish is a bit too clean.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2006 On tap at Golden Valley Brewery. Black. A nicely balanced stout, but no real standout flavours. Definitely didn’t get the richness of other oatmeal stouts I’ve tried. Chocolate tones, less than average bitterness.
