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.

13th August 2008. Opaque black beer, no head., only a little carbonation. Silky smoothness, presumably from the oatmeal. Medium toasted malt and with a bitterish coffee finish. The silky palate keeps the score up on this one.

Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, lightly roast malts, oats, faint plums, and light earthy notes. Flavor is rich chocolate, earthy bitterness, coffee, faint dark fruit notes, and light ash; dry finish with some chocolate notes lingering. Full body and medium carbonation

From a bomber. Pours wry dark brown with a bubbly tan head and nice lacing. Smells like booze, sweet chocolate, some vanilla, and cookie malt. Tastes like chocolate, vanilla bean, coffee beans, and dry malt.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was black with a half finger off white foamy head that quickly dies into the beer with some spider web lacing. The smell had a toasted oatmeal up front with some light dark chocolate hanging around over some light roasted coffee bean. The taste had a thick roastiness over some coffee bean and then a slight oatmeal come out. On the palate, this sat right at a medium in body. There was a subdued carbonation running over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good oatmeal stout to come back to if I could.

This brew pours inky black with a dark brown head. There are aromas of chocolate, coffee, and oatmeal. The is a complex combination of chocolate and coffee flavors that has a rich texture. Overall this is a well produced stout.

thrashers2x (46) - Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle exploded upon cracking the top and took 10-15 minutes to settle down. Coffee, chocolate, espresso, roasted nuts, and a nice hop backbone to cut the sweet. Pretty good but probably would have been much better properly carbonated.

Coffee and toasted malt dominate the aroma. The aroma is pleasant although somewhat too simple. The mouthfeel is good with acidity and malt well-balanced. The taste has strong coffee and roast flavors with some hops. Too little malt backbone for a truly good flavor.

PorterPounder (5448) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Atlanta, Ga - Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Bottle exploded upon opening (points off of overall for that) - Dark black pour - thick (too thick) and foamy off-white head that sticks around way too long. Aroma has some creosote and chocolate - nice. Flavor ha some nice espresso notes, some potting soil, a bit of bittersweet baker’s dark chocolate and a touch of licorice. Nice chalky mouthfeel. Pretty solid - just wish there was not so much carbonation on the pour - could only pour about two ounces at a time!

scotchzombie (325) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pours dark brown almost black with a creamy brown sugar-tan head that evokes the head of an ice cream soda. Wet natural lacing as the head fades to a finger or so. Aroma is rich roasted chocolate malts and a touch of oats. Taste is sweet chocolate malt and oatmeal into bitter roast coffee malt. Notes of ash to close. Really well-balanced between sweet and bitter. A quality oatmeal stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
