12 oz botle. Pours a dark black with a dark tan head. Aroma is semi-sweet chocolate, toffee, light roast and brown sugar. Taste is sweet, roasty, chocolatey, with an oaty creaminess. A nice brew in one of my favorite styles.

Roasted malt, oat, chocolate finish is dry. A good but average oatmeal stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle via trade with michael-pollack- thanks, Pollack! Pours a dark, opaque brown color with a tiny tan head that leaves only a ring in the glass. Aroma of oatmeal, chocolate and roasted malts, mild coffee, earth, and molasses-like syrup. Flavor of oats, sweet chocolate malts, oats, mild coffee, cola syrup, molasses, and overripe plums. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, sweet, roasty mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose is heavy roast and coffee, just the slightest hint of baker’s chocolate. A creamy mouthful is rather dry, roasty, coffee, and modest bittersweetness. Nice finish is dry and feels like it came from the oats rather than the barley. More hints of chocolate. Good.

12oz bottle. Pours thick brown-black with a fair amount of beige/brown head. Aroma is roast bread malt and a hint of espresso and cocoa. Taste is toffee malt with hints of cocoa and a nicely balanced bitterness from the hops. Clean finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Surprisingly really great. It pours very dark brown with a tall brown head. The aroma is densely roasted with hints of molasses, licorice, cocoa, and coffee. The flavor is dry with coffee and bread crust. The mouthfeel is fabulous with lots of creamy oats. Very filling and satisfying. Count me as a fan!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Opaque brown-black, with a respectable beige head. Roasty chocolate aroma. Slightly sweet with some brown chocolate, coffee, cocoa flavors. Soapy hops provide balance. Quite a refreshing, balanced Stout. A touch sweeter than Blackhawk, with some more doughy depth. Pretty solid offering.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of milk chocolate, slight coffee, roasted malts, and a slight smokiness. Flavor was disappointing. Roasted malts are a little harsh on the flavor. Some chocolate and coffee with a lingering flavor of the harsh roasted malts. This brew had so much potential until I drank it.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black with a thick brown head. Rich coffee and roasted malt aroma. Flavor is bitter with coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Velvety mouthfeel. Not a whole lot to say other than delicious.

Loved this stout. Poured into a 12 ounce glass with very dark Brown to black colour. It has a very pleasant aroma, but very mild. Flavour starts coffee, then to a full chocolate malty body. Purchased from Nugget supermarket on sale $7.99. Very good value.
