Man, this is good brew. Poured a tad warm with a colossal, foamy, frothy, fluffy, tan head that lasts for a while and a bit a lace. Color is a clear, almost opaque garnet. Aroma is roast, malt, dark old leather, earth, hint of funk. Flavors somewhat like nose with bittersweet malt and tang up front and very well balanced. Body is strangely light yet full with spot on carbonation. Finish is like flavor, a hint of smoke and good length. Super drinkable. Wish we could get it locally.

On tap at Barley Brothers, Winnipeg. Compared this back to back with the Russell Porter, and they both had similar roast elements to them. Black body obviously. The palate was a bit thicker and nicer on this one. Overall a decent stout.

Reimer96 (1171) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Pours a clear black with a frothy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, cream and coffee. Taste is roasted malts and creamy coffee mouthfull is very slick and creamy and gives a coffee and cream type impression with a light roasted bitterness on the finish as well. Nice oatmeal stout.

TheRyatolla (6) - CANADA - JAN 4, 2013 does not count
Nice aroma coffee and chocolate, Black as coal with cappuccino head. Tastes nice with a medium finish but not long on finish or very robust. All in all a good stout if your not looking for a meal in a glass.

brokensail (10641) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Black in color with a creamy khaki head. The nose is heavy on the roasted malt and coffee. There’s a touch of toasted bread, some cocoa, and maybe a little bit of ash. The flavor is a bit on the watery side. A fair amount of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate, though. Not as rich and creamy as most oatmeal stouts. A bit of ash and soy sauce.
