UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 Bottled thanks Joey@CigarCity. Very deep brown, close to opaque black dark colour, brown mediumsized head. Aroma is liquorice, alcohol, chocolate oak and ashes with some roast. Also some dark fruits and plummy sweetness. Flavour is very much the same with a quite oily, but still carbonated palate. A bit too sweet for my taste.

Bottled, thanks Marsblursi! Very black with rich pale brown head. Fruity nose with metall and tar. Very sweet, very fruity. Lightly smokey with lots of inky syrup and metal. Tarry and aggressive with edgy mouthfeel and an acidic lemony finish with licorice and ink. Over the top and into the ditch.

Opaque black beer. Good chocolate coloured head. A little oxidisation on the nose. Softish smooth palate. Rich dark malt with some oxidisation that largely disappears with some agitation. Tangy. Big unsweet dark chocolate. Mild coffee. Subtle fruits - some raspberry and cherry. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Great fully flavoured stout.

Very dark brown color, creamy thick beige head. Roasted aroma, not coffee beans or malts but roasted vegetables (Swedish turnip, but it must be that tapioca). Full-bodied. Thick, I mean thick, cyrapy palate - sugary and vegatably! Alcoholic aftertaste. This is too sweet and too vegetably to be a great beer, but a decent dessert beer anyway.

Oakes (13454) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2009
Black body with dark brown head. The aroma has molasses, lots of roast and booze. Rich roasty palate, starchy with a bit of tartness late. Lots of booziness to it. Powerful stuff. A real bruiser, and it takes over the beer. Thanks, SoLan.

Draft sample at MBGF07. Poured a black color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Heavy roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Good complex roasted flavor with a medium burnt finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.
