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.

(12oz bottle) clear ruby/medium brown khaki bubbles. Nose of meat, oats, cocoa and dark chocolate. Taste of dark chocolate, caramel, cream and oats. Very smooth palate was the best feature of this one.

riversideAK (5738) - 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.

JaBier (5616) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Sample at Lafayette. Darkest brown color with a thin tan head. Malty and roasty aroma with some chocolatey sweetness. Creamy malt flavor with some sweet chocolate before a dry roasty finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2007
When held up to natural light, one can see that this has a very dark brown body. Its tan head lingers none too long. There’s a bunch of oats in the aroma, perhaps to be expected since the grain bill contains 10% oatmeal. This is complemented by lightly roasted malt and some bittersweet chocolate. Nice and smooth to drink, it tastes of roasted malts with a touch of barley, oats, and milk chocolate. A nutty/earthy bitterness enters midway though and lasts into the finish. Pretty decent.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small head of fine to medium sized light brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was an opaque black color with no visible carbonation. The aroma was that of mild coffee and dark malts. The mouth feel was initially smooth and mellow with a mild lingering dark malt bite in the aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of bread coffee and dark malts. A very tasty brew indeed. Probably the best beer there in my humble opinion.
