Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2012
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.

stchloe (745) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2009
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.

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2008
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.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2008
On nitro tap at GVB in McMinnville, OR--Abysmal black body with a great creamy tan head. Sweet, nutty, roasted chocolate, toffee, boozy nose. Creamy, bright, crisp taste. Robust and very enjoyable.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 27, 2007
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.

linc33 (184) - Albany, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2006
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.

[Tap – Brewery] Deep dark brown color no to little head. This was a Chocolaty, malty, roasty toasty brew. Loved the flavors and the used of malts. Had a good dry finish and a flavor to die for. Nitrogen induced so that really helps. This brewery knows dark beers the light stuff is for the non brewing crowed.
