COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth, full-bodied oatmeal stout that pours with a creamy brown head and a body of deep, dark black that is as mesmerizing as it is terrifying. Shimmergloom will take wing to the night sky, blotting out the shimmering stars like a shadowy dragon on it’s deleterious approach to burn your ramparts, crush your resistance and leave you wanting more. Shimmergloom won a bronze medal in the Irish/British Stout category at 2014 Washington Beer Awards.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate brown head on it. Nose is roasty and slightly sour with a bit of dark chocolate coming through. Taste is just a tad bitter, but a slightly sweet finish with chocolate. Pretty good beer, I’d have to say.

Ferris (11034) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle - Lots of nice dark roasty notes, oatmeal and chocolate. Deep jet brown with a very rich brown head. Nice oatmeal texture, silky with chocolate and a touch of bitterness. Long roasty finish. Very solid.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle:   Black, thin to moderate foamy tannish head, little lacing.   Soft roasted malts on the nose.   Smooth on the tongue, soft sweetness, light roastiness, a touch ashy on the backside.   Very simple, but clean.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft Stout, smooth but not heavy, clean as well.   Finish shows a bit more of an ashy background.   Light sweetness too.   Solid despite being simple.

22. Cool name, pretty cool label (though it could be more eye-catching--but the design is cool). Dig the candy apple red cap. Pours an opaque black with a surging, sudsy dark tan head that goes away after a few drinks, settling to nothing at all. Big roasty nose, a little sweet alcohol, some peanut butter. Creamy thick body with sluggish carb. Roasty dark black bread mid palate with a nice toasty peanut butter note somewhere in the background. That sweet alcohol note bounces back around, and the beer could do without that. Nice warm finish though.

Ernest (7204) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black (almost opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, bitter chocolate), lightly hoppy (grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. A simple, roasty example. Nothing special, but solid.
