(draft @ The Esquire - San Antonio, TX) Pitch black pour with a smooth and creamy tan head. Big roasted malt aroma with some coffee notes as well and some sweetness. Flavor is rich and creamy due to the oatmeal with a smooth but very pronounced chocolate and roasted bitterness.

Draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate off-white head. Nose has some nice roasting elements to it. Taste is also roasty, but seems a bit muddled to me. Smooth though.

JStax (4637) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to errl. Pours a viscous black with a khaki colored head of foam with decent retention. The aroma is ashy, roasty, mildly fruity, heavily roasted malt. Taste is earthy bitterness and just slightly sweet. That ashy note from the aroma is fairly dominant. Its distracting, but not unenjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 12 oz bottle compliments of Crajun. Pitch black pour. Aroma of dark chocolate and some coffee. Thick & chewy mouthfeel. Chocolate and raisin upfront, black licorice finish. Thick on the tongue, the way an oatmeal should be. Will seek out more of this! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Man, I love this stout. Probably one the best in the state. Nice roasted malt and coffee aroma. Dark color that you can’t see through like a straight cup of coffee. Small maple head. Flavors are burnt toast, coffee and some bitter chocolate. Oily mouthfeel that coats your mouth. Well balanced with a nice alcohol undertone. Not all that easy to get yet, so pick one up if you see it.

Bitter cocoa and slightly tart aroma. Very dark with a thick but quickly fading dark tan head. Smooth. Lighter bodied than expected. Cocoa bitterness.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2015 Roasted chocolate nose. Black opaque color. Smooth velvet mouthfeel. Roast chocolate malt. Very balanced. Excellent Had to come back and re rate since my first score was early on. Still drinks nice but not a 4.4.
