Sampler-sized draft at LBC Black as road tar... no, that sounds unpleasant... well, black. A thin head owed partly to LBC’s lower carbonation levels across the line. A silky, creamy texture that does not mask the stout’s bitterness and a bit of driness. In other words, there are characteristics of nearly every kind of stout at work here.

Sampled from a growler at DarkLord Day, thanks anonymous person. Pours a murky brown with a small head. Chocolate nose, not picking out much else. Light chocolate flavors with a smooth palate. Not very sweet for a sweet stout, and actually finishes a little dry ... but a decent stout none the less.

Clean aroma, slight toasted malt on the nose. Very dark, with very very thin head. More bitterness than expected, lacked the smoothness/silkiness that I’d expect with this style. Perhaps reducing some of the darker grains and adding more oat (malt) could balance this more. Generally bitter throughout with some dark chocolate in the finish. Overall it is a middle of the road oatmeal stout. .

awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Bottle from VBS. Pours Pours opaque black with slight brown edge and minimal quickly disappearing light tan head. Nose is dark malt, coffee, some chocolate and a little red meat. Flavor is well watered down nose, most of the nose has disappeared, what’s mainly left is black coffee and dark malt/chocolate. Much thinner and more watery than I was expecting and hoping. Still very decent sipper, smooth and easy on the palate. A slight sweet side and very faint hop background. The thinness is just too distracting IMHO.

[Bottle] Pours black with no head and nearly no bubbles. Aroma is pretty decent, lots of smoke, some roasted malts, and a touch of oats. Flavor kind of drops off, though. Watery and flat, mostly harsh roasty malts and plenty of smoke. There’s really no sweetness to be found. There’s also some light band-aid and detergent in there as well. Bummer, I generally really enjoy oatmeal stouts.
