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.

[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.

This is going to be the beer that I order everytime I go to this brewery. Another big beer as far as flavor but I wish it has a little more alcohol. The flavor is rich and complex and full bodied. Subtle oatmeal flavors with alot of malt character and a rich cocoa creaminess

Started with the sampler of this. Came pitch black with a deep tan head. A sweet chocolate mocha aroma. Last sip finished as good smooth and creamy as the first. So, I had to have a pint of this. One problem I had with this beer is that I can’t get it in Georgia.

On tap at the brewery. This was a really nice smooth stout on nitro, very nice chocolate, smooth and rich, with a light burnt sugar taste in the finish. Very nice weight on the palate and the nitro made this very easy to drink.

Nitro, thick tan head, deep garnet ruby color. Tons of sweet chocolate and...that's about it. Huge chocolate, some dark molasses & maybe maple syrup. Flavor is creamy like a rich mocha sundae. Lots of chocolate malts & black patent.

4/19/03 Tap at brewery. Black, with a tan head, mild malt aroma, with a bit of earthyness. Roasty coffee flavors and traces of chocolate and nuts. Nicely smooth front to back, and all in all, a very pleasent drink.

Cask at the brewery. Black with a little light at the glass edge. Roasted oatmeal and milk, cream aroma. Slghtly musty, moderately thin body with a nice coffee-creamer character and tones of almonds and roasted nuts. Overall a little too thin, but the flavor profile is very nice.
