Bottle from trade with crajun. Black pour, low disappearing head without lacing, Aroma is sweet malt, roasty, chocolate and a hint of dried fruit; pretty nice. Flavor is very balanced with roasted notes, hint of chocolate and the right amount of bitterness for me. A little alcohol is in there. Flavors linger on the palate nicely, giving this good mouthfeel. Overall, a really balanced but interesting and very drinkable stout. Thanks, Kevin.

Dark black with a light brown head. Smells of chocolate and coffee, taste is nice semisweet dark chocolate with a light coffee and slight bitter after taste. overall this is a very good oatmeal stout with the 9.2% hidden well.

12oz bottle sent by crajun from his free beer contest, thanks! Pours black with a light tannish head and spotty lacing in the glass, aroma has a nice amount of chocolate with just a little bit of oat coming through, the flavor has a sweet front end with a finish of a little bit of chocolate, the mouthfeel is just a little light though and I wanted more out of it, the abv is well hidden, not bad.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 Aroma is a little alcohol-e with a hint of oatmeal but I?m not sure if that?s not just because I know its an oatmeal stout. Appearance is an impenetrable black with golden btown crown. Tastes great buy not as good as say founders breakfast stout, but its say a close second.

Wordsworth (135) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Draft pour at Whip In. Pours darkest brown nearly black with a thin khaki head that dissipates. Thin foamy lacing clings to the upper glass. Too cold for a smell test. Taste is lightly roasted malts, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Thick mouthfeel that ends sort of sudsy. Pretty good stout from Independence.
