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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Dark black - brown beer, tiny pale tan head. Light dry palate. Light touch of dark malt. Trace of coffee bitterness. Mild minerals. An okay stout - a little dry and bitter.
