Our award-winning stout is rich and malty with hints of chocolate and coffee. It’s what espresso would be if it had the gumption to be beer. Makes a great dessert...or meal.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Bottle. Fairly thin for a stout, but is has some good flavour. Roasted mocha flavours dominate aswell as chocolate. Pretty soft and easy going as far as stouts go, pleasant.

Bottle, rating from old notes. Balck opaque pour. Roasted malty aroma and flavors, with light hints of coffee and chocolate, and maybe some floral type hop.

12oz. bottle thanks to Swededog. Dark brown, almost black with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Dark roasted malt aroma with a touch of coffee. Bitter roasted malt flavor with hints of coffee and chocolate. Kind of dry for an oatmeal stout.

Just when I was about to turn my back on sweet stouts, this one comes along and revives the category. Pours a decent thickness; deep midnight brown in color with a tan head that has no intention of leaving. Aroma is a bitter dark chocolate, like the end result of administering one small squeeze of Hershey syrup in a mug of espresso. Rounded out with some wafts of caramelized fudge and brown sugar oatmeal. Taste is…yeah! This is how to do a sweet stout. Expressive dry bitter nodes at the forefront, and a French roast coffee batch, brewed with only half the amount of required water. This bitch has character, none of that wishy-washy "creamy chocolatey" colloquial crap that sweet stouts try to clone. Cafe au late milky finish. Dry, bitter, mocha laden. Damn good. Thanks to tpkenned for this New England poster child of how to do a sweet stout right!

Pours a jet black with a dense brown head. Nice looking beer. Smells of very bitter malt. Sour and oaty aromas and prominent. Taste is bitter and sweet and oaty. This beer screams oatmeal stout from 6 miles away. Smoky bitter finish. Quite a complex beer. Sweet and bitter with a bit of sourness. Grainy (oaty) but strangely smooth and tasty. Flavors linger on the roof of your mouth forever. It’s like drinking a cigar. The flavors are bold and strong. This beer is just damn good. I only wish I could get more of it where I live. A definite must try if you are in MA.

Half gallon growler. Pours dark with a brownish head. Tastes like cold bitter coffee. Finishes a little over hopped. Hints of chocolate. Very strong flavor.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2005
opaque black color with foamy tan head, smells of burnt coffee with hints of chocolate, generally a sweet smell. flavor a sweet coffee taste to match the aroma, loads of malts, but a little too much bitter hops in the tail. a nice chewy body, almost a solid feel in your mouth. if it weren’t for the bitterness, this would have been outstanding.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Poured almost black. Aroma of roasted malt espresso, and some chocolate. Flavors match aroma plus some hop flavor in the background with a light bitter finish. Light to medium body and a smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
