Roasted chocolate and coffee notes make this beer a great treat.

Narnad (1515) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Grabbed a growler from Granite City in Rockford, IL(very expensive $15 plus $8 to fill) and would not recommend their growlers since they seem to lack the ability to keep the beer carbonated well. Poured from the growler black. Aroma is toasted malts and strong of coffee. Flavor is a good bitterness with great coffee flavor and has a faint caramel end note. Palate is a bit weak and lacks any depth in density of the brew.

Tap at Granite City, a boring stout with nothing really going on , dry chalky chocolate dominates in an odd way. no real flavor besides dry chalk.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2007
St. Louis Park location. Chocolate, cocoa and dry malt on the nose. Pours black with a thick khaki head with excellent retention. Flavor reminded me of Guinness Draught. Mostly dry with a hint of malty sweetness. Medium boded and creamy. Lacked depth and complexity.

GJF (1448) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - OCT 25, 2008
On tap in cedar rapids. Pours a thick black, white head. Light aroma for a stout. A lot of roastiness in the flavor, but it’s pretty thin for a stout--almost watery. Dry finish. Meh...

kathouse (1418) - Nevada, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Chocolate and coffee aromas. Listed as an Oatmeal Stout on the menu. Light/medium body, thin but enjoyable finish. I liked this beer.

jrodooo5 (1370) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Ehh, mediocre stout at best! Beautiful dark pour w/ a retaining mocha head that leaves little lacing. The aroma is quite light & only slightly roasty. The taste is watery, slight roast, & just too thin! Come on man!

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Tap at granite city in Kansas City, MO. Poured a darker brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma was coffee, roasted malts and chocolate. Very dry finish. Thiin and watery body. Flavor was much of the same. Roasted malts, coffee and nuts. Could have been a lot beer. Below average.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draft at the Kansas City location. Pours thin and black with a white head. Flavor isnt bad, with malts and cocoa. Overall, not as offensive as some of their other beers. A solid light and thin stout that could be sessioned.
