The name sure is appealing... But it just doesnít 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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2006 On tap at Golden Valley Brewery. Black. A nicely balanced stout, but no real standout flavours. Definitely didnít get the richness of other oatmeal stouts Iíve 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 canít get it in Georgia.
