3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

Tap. Very dark pour. Oatmeal, dried fruits, chocolate, malt. Medium to full body with a lot of flavors. Almost creamy finish. Nice

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.
