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.

willblake (2632) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2004
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.

sfontain (770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2004
Pours absolutely opaque with a smallish dark brown head. Very roasty coffee aroma. Flavor is super-malty, heavily coffee, and some chocolate, with that sharp sweetness from the oats, and a very solid bitterness in the finish. Good, but a little too sweet for my tastes. Mouthfeel is rich and unexceptional. Overall, very solid, but not among my favorite stouts.

2004 Bottle. From the fantastic aroma and lovely thick head, to the jet black pour, this beer is a delight to the senses. Until you drink it; then it delights again. The sweet oats; the round mouthfeel; and the bright hoppy finish make this beer one of my favourites!

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2004
This beer pours a tenebrous, nearly black color with a medium thick light brown head. Head retention is not great and the lacing is good. The aroma is very roasty coffee and grain. Rich and satisfyingly tasty, with a pleasing blend of coffee, malt, and chocolate. There is an underlying faint sweetness throughout as well. The deceptively bitter finish kind of worms its way in. The hops are enough to keep this beer very drinkable. Overall I enjoyed this one.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Black with a puffy brown head. Coffee and bitter chocolate are dominant in both smell and taste, with piney hops giving some accent to the nose and some boldness to the taste. This one reminds me of Smuttynose Robust Porter.
