Black pour, tan head. Aroma of hops and some malts. Flavor is very sweet for a stout, with a hoppy finish to combat what one might think was going to be smooth.

Sampled from the tap at the 2010 GTMW. Poured black with a gray brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had lots of roasted malts with some dark grains and a slight oat note. Flavor was bitter with roasted grains and a hint of underlying oat.

Had this one on draught as part of a sampler at the brewpub in Lafayette, Indiana. Opaque dark brown pour with a coffee and soy sauce nose, very sweet chocolate and bitter coffee balanced out into an outstanding oatmeal stout.

Mora2000 (5834) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a very small tan head. The aroma is pretty heavy on the coffee but also has some chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and tobacco. Medium-thick, slightly creamy mouthfeel and low carbonation.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Roasted malts, charred notes, and oatmeal/oat notes that add a touch of soft sweetness. Pours dark brown with little head and no lace. First flavors are roast and char followed by light chocolate and oat notes, light balancing sweetness gives way to char and earthy hop notes on the finish. Very low almost non existent carbonation - no hiss when popped. Smooth silky body with just a bit too much char in the finish to accurately reflect style imo.
