COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a rich, nearly opaque black with a thick light brown head. Aroma of sweet rolled oats and dry roasted malt. Starts rich and caramel malty sweet with lots of dark chocolate flavors and a touch of hops. Finishes semi-sweet and dry with lingering coffee and chocolate malt. A nice sweet stout. Thanks willblake!

Bottle, from Julio’s. Good nose, coffee grounds, molasses, little dairy, nutty. Nice brownish black color. No light goes through. Small brownish beige head that faded quick. Bitter sweet flavors. Expresso/ molasses dominates. Some nuttiness shows up. Thicker creamy body. Bitter roasty finish. Very nice. Another winner from Mrecury.

Dorwart (2363) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2008 Large, dark brown head which settles nicely. Thick and creamy on top. Low carbonation. Toasted oatmeal aroma with sweet malts and a bit of chocolate. Hint of raw meat as it warms. Color is black. Flavor is rich and thick with a roasted grains, a little bitterness and a bit of chocolate. Strong coffee notes also. Finish is slightly bitter and roasty . Leaves a dry but clean feeling in the mouth. A decent stout. Thanks to willblake for this one.

Absolutely black with a large brown head - beautiful. Great nose of coffee rounded out with some chocolate. Very fresh smelling. Big roasty body - a hint of sweetness that stays in the background (kind of like good music). A good lingering bitterness in the finish - very long. Great stout.

08.11.04 12oz bottle. Totally black, big brown head, thick lace. Seriously roasty, malty, and smokey aromas. Some nut, too. Thick, rich body. Big presence of roasy malts. Bitting on finish. Coffee flavors on the afterthought/aftertaste. Coffee acidity on finish as well, a pleasant bite! Quite delicious brew, a great find.

Light bodied brew. No real dominant flavor. A little watery. Average at best.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Very good oatmeal stout, Thanks Oldgrowth. Aroma is sweet like molasses and coffee. The sweetness dominates. It is pitch black, with a small brown head. Flavor is a mix of sweetness with a slight bite. Full bodied for the style. Bitterness nudges out the sweetness in the finish.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2005 Pours dark dark brown with a brown/tan head. Typical oatmeal stout with the taste. Malty, chocolate, coffee. Good stuff. Medium body. Decent hops too.
