A variety of dark roasted malts, oatmeal, and our own imported English ale yeast creates a smooth almost-black beer with chocolate overtones and a roasty flavor.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2004 Sampled this beer at the Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison WI. Even though my scores on this are accurate and well researched, Da Man wants me to say more about the beer, so I will. What a great stout. I can taste the roasted oodness in this beer.

Medium sized brown head, good retention and lace. Black brew with some brown highlights showing around the edges. Grainy, chocolatey nose. Medium body. Grainy malt notes, the oats i assume. Mildly sour, light chocolate and roast notes with a hint of coffee. Fairly dry finish. Thanks slik.

An excellent beer. A classic English style Oatmeal Stout, with an almost black color. Full-bodied with chocolate and coffee overtones and a roasty flavor. I think I found a new favorite beer.

Had in the bottle at Old Chicago in Roseville, Mn. Dark black, licorice-like pour with an eggnog colored head, good thick lacing. Has a coffee and bittersweet chocolate aroma. Same elements carry over to the flavor with a little bit of black licoruice and roasted flavor trhown in there.The high lactic content leaves a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a very good stout.

Wow; doesn’t get much better than this. My second Lake Superior brew (thanks to slikwily) was impressive once again. Dark black with a compact lasting tan head. Aroma of smoke and sweet. Flavor had a lot of coffee to it, along with chocolate, liqourice, and brown sugar. Very very nice.

Thanks to Nexxus for this one. Pours black with a big tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, coffee, cognac. Tastes very malty, roasty, with hints of coffee, malt, chocolate, vanilla, oats, and a smooth finish. Delicious.

This beer rocks! Pitch black with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention with thick, creamy lace. The nose is of chocolate and vanilla. The well-balanced flavor mirrors the nose with some toasted pecans thrown in. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, sweet, toasted finish. Underrated. World class brew, IMHO!

Black. Toasted grains. Like a weak coffee with sugar. Alcohol burn taste, guess this is 6% plus. Bit of burnt bitter aftertaste. Basically a passable beer with some oatmeal. Not the best expression of this style. Could be a whole lot smoother. Thanks to Sir Pigfoot.

Okay, I’m going to be odd man out here. I had this in the bottle, and I couldn’t drink it. I love stout and this had a thin body and a flavor that bordered on teryaki sauce. Too sour for me. I will have to try it on tap (or better, cask) someday. I just can’t dig it.
