This is a member of the sweet Stout category that traces its roots back to mild Ales that were brewed with a portion of oatmeal to cut the green beer harshness. This stout is very smooth and slightly sweeter with a relatively high alcoholic content. The roasted malts and smooth creamy texture makes for a clean finish. This Beer also was awarded a Bronze Medal at the California State Fair.

Initial yeasty aroma escapes the bottle before turning chocolaty. pasty oatmeal aroma noticeable as is high alchol content. Fairly high alcohol bite, blends well against silky oatmeal palate. Nice roasted chocolate at the end grips well into the aftertaste.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Smelled heavily of chocolate and to a lesser degree roasted narley malt. Chocolate hints are definitely present. Deep black with a large mocha head. Huge and dominate coffee flavor in the fore-no chocolate or otherwise seet notes-lots of burnt roastiness and a medium bitter finish.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Tap@lamppost pizza. Black; opaque with a tan, creamy head of monstorous proportion(took a few minutes to pour); no lace until the bottom 1/3 of the glass, likely due to temperature. Fullish body, slightly dry; foamy, fizzy carbonation and a bit "liquidy." Yeast; molasses, chocolate, toasted grain and caramel on the aroma. Flavor was yeasty throuout; sour like rising dough; slight alconol flavor in finish; toasted chocolate(milk + dark); nutty like hazelnuts; touch of caramel; toasted grains; lightly bitter finish, sour. Nice stout and noticably the best of the 3 beers I had tonight. Body is a bit off; the cabonation and body just aren’t blending well.

A pure black body with a dark tan head. Aromas of sweet chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. A smooth brew with dark roasted malt flavor, coffee and chocolate. Not real dry or sweet. yummy!!
