This stout is great. The body is not as thick as the major selling stout that everyone knows. And the head needs to hold a little longer. But the body feels great on the palate. The aroma is nutty, coffee, and wheaty. The beer flows down great. And the taste is almost of a nut brown with thick malt and wheat flavors. The beer finishes with a nice bitterness, smoother than the forementioned mass imported stout, and the wheat, malt, and hops really come through in the aftertaste. A great choice to start out the night strong.

A world class stout, enjoyed by draft at Maria’s Tap in Bridgeport, Chicago. A very thick brew, with lots of biscuity sweetness and oily, black, and viscous. Delicious full bodied and perfect homage to a wonderful neighborhood in Cleveland.

Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh. Nicely smooth with lots of bold flavor. Thick as a bowl of oatmeal with a ton of molasses on top. Somewhat arid on the finish.

Growler pours pitch black with a tan head. Has a nice roasty smell with some raosty malts mixed in. Has a light mouthfeel that I wish was a little heavier. The flavors that this beer has is what makes it. It is very chocolatey upfront with a smooth roasted malt flavor on the back side. It has some sweetness mixed in. Overall this is a solid beer that would be a regular in my fridge if they offered it in bottles. This is a great beer.

10/18/03 - At the pub for my wife's birthday dinner. This time, they've got the ABV listed at 7.5%. Dark black, perfect tan head and thick sheets of lace. The first few sips remind me of chocolate milk - very smooth and very thick, despite being served on nitro. Tastes are sweet chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, fruity in the background, not very bitter at all. It's very rare for me to get excited over a stout, but liet me tell you, this one is well worth a visit. Even my wife drank most of a pint!(That's very rare indeed!)

Maddog (399) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2005
As far as oatmeal stouts go, this one was very good. It was fresh draft at the brewery, and it makes a good session beer. At 4.8%, it is soft and flavorful, and able to be drunk all night long. A very drinkable, solid oatmeal stout.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark beer with a creamy mocha foam head and a nice dusty grain nose with a faint chocolate whiff. Great lacing on the glass. This is a very easy drining stout with a smooth palate. Roasted grain bight with bitter chocolate. Milky finish. Nice stout.

This is good and black with a nice creamy tan head that leads me to believe that this is probably nitro dispensed. There’s a good roasty aroma. There’s a bit of cocoa in the flavor along with the roast. The body is just a tad too thin for my preferences.
