Draught at the brewpub
Very dark brown color, with nice red beams near the edges; creamy head; nice lace. Breadish aroma, and some roasted malt. Smooth mouthfeel; roasted malt flavor with character; late, light liquorice; correct bitterness. Overall balanced. Very good.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2005
Dark brown colour. Fudgey, chocolatey aroma. Sweetish flavour with more fudge and chocolate. Fairly simple. Like a liquified brownie.

brokensail (11551) - 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.

bhensonb (11512) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
1L swingtop from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. Pours black with a foamy dark tan head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate and perhaps treacle. Med body; foamy carb. It’ got gritty burnt malt, sweetish chocolate and decent coffee. Not getting treacle. Finishes dry. Drinks pretty well. Reminds me of what a regular stout can taste like.

daknole (9439) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Standard brown pour with a lighter brown head. Overly roasty, dry, cocoa nibs, ashy. Not my favorite.

Sammy (8937) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
One-litre swingtop brought back. Brown with a thick soapy head. Good roast aroma. Hits the spot on style. Lace dots. A sourish acidic edge and also well malted down. Still good drinkability.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2004
Dark black, ruby tinted beer with a thin tan head. No nitro, which is always a bonus. Typical chocolate and coffee aroma, nice mouthfeel. Chocolate flavour dominates, but there is a hint of of the coffee and some cherry fruitiness as well. Roasty bitter finish.

1L bottle. Poured cola brown with a short, fluffy tan head.. looked good in the glass. The aroma picked up sweeter chocolate and biscuit malts, with hints of vanilla.. just a little earthiness on the back.. sweet and welcoming. The flavor found milky chocolates, vanilla, and a pinch of molasses, with tangy malt character around.. sweet oats were more pronounced on the back-end.. nothing un-enjoyable there. Lighter-bodied and sweet on the palate.. balance was solid, and this was easy-drinkin’. No problems taking down the 1L.
