Tap at Draft Pick. Pours black with a nice khaki head. Roasted aroma with chocolate and a hint of licorice. Flavor is the same with a good amount of bitterness. Full body. Good brew.

12 oz bottle from Crajun. Thanks. Pours an opaque black color with a small brown head that has fair retention. The aroma is pungent with dark fruits, mocha, liqueurs and blackened barley. The flavor features lots of roasty notes including burnt toast, grains, walnuts and earthy hops. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finished medium in duration. Overall: A respectable stout, very tasty.

In short: Another harsh highly roasted big stout. Just ok
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed when approximately 6 months of age. Bottle sent to me by MaltOMeal, thanks a lot Bill
The look: Light gusher, black body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose is medium roasted, burnt dark fruits, a bit of soy sauce and a cold cup of coffee. Taste has plenty of burnt malts, burnt bananas, charcoal, soy sauce, light notes of raisins, roasted chocolate chips cookies, dried earth. Ends with something that resembles bitterness but this mostly coming from the high roast level. Doesnít have the velvety body that I usually find and love in oatmeal stout. Carbonation was way too aggressive but maybe there was something with my bottle/batch since it was a light slow gusher. Nothing was bad in this beer, but everything was kind of rough. This is my 4700th rating, congrats to me, and if Iíve learned anything in the countless hours Iíve wasted on ratebeer itís that Iím not very good at learning how to be productive.

beerbill (3421) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 17, 2012
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with crajun. Poured black with a moderate, somewhat creamy and frothy brown head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma that is filled with chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is more focused on the roasted malt with just a bit of chocolate. Soft, well-rounded mouthfeel. Mild bitterness at the finish. Solid.

Thick black with foamy tan head. Chocolate malt and a little roasted coffee and grains. Lots of coffee an roast bitter chocolate. This is a really good beer, bit of a heavy booze bite.
