22 oz bottle from MrBendo and Beertopia in Omaha. Pour looks like motor oil - all black with a nice dark khaki head and a touch of layering. Aroma is initially roasted espresso then gives way to roasted barley and a nice amount of hops. Taste is big on the coffee, though it is nicely blended into a nice full bodied stout. Good hop bitterness at the end. This was really well made, yet something just didnít entirely do it for me. Maybe I just donít like coffee stouts as much as others?

Pours a deep blackwith a brown head. Aroma and taste expand as this one warms up. Chocolate, coffee, and slight carmel. Mouthfeel is a little light, but good. Taste of coffee, oats, slight smoke and vanila. Finish is bitter sweet, almostlike dark chocolate with bitter coffee.Very good.

22oz bottle Ė and an expensive one at that. To keep the tradition I decided to drink this for breakfast. Pours very dark black with a bubbly, foamy, dark brown head that sticks around for awhile. Nice, thick lace left down the entire glass. Aroma is surprisingly mild but very appetizing. Chocolate and coffee predominate. Nice roastiness. This is a really, really nice aroma, I just wish it were a little bit stronger. Thankfully as this warms up it improves. Around room temperature this baby smells real nice. Taste is rich, chewy, semi-bitter coffee with a long chocolate aftertaste. Nice, smooth flavor. The body is a bit thin for my liking, however, and it is the biggest flaw of this beer. Overall this is a very nice stout; certainly one of the best Iíve had. The price is not justified in my opinion. Still, Iím happy I got to try this.

22oz bottle shared, Pitch black motor oil pour which i love, goes nicely into a big brown chocolate milk head, taste is very sweet and leaves sugary sensation on my lips, each sip makes me want more, this is like a smoother FBS. and quite good indeed.

Bottle purchased at Liquor Max in Loveland. Pours opaque with a small, dark brown, creamy head, somewhat diminishing, fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (coffee, chocolate, toasted grain), heavy hops (perfume, grass), average yeast (leather) with notes of light alcohol, raisins, smoke and vanilla. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness; dark roasted coffee, dark and slightly bitter chocolate, wood and smoke flavors.

Dogbrick (7992) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2007
This fine Stout pours a glossy near-black color with a thick and rocky light brown head that has good retention. Nice big patches of lacing on the glass. Big roasty aroma of coffee, oats, and chocolate malt. Rich, smooth body with a character somewhere between an Oatmeal Stout and an Imperial Stout. Flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and hops are all present. All in all the beer manages the smooth texture and flavor of an Oatmeal Stout while toying with the robust body of an Imperial. The finish is moderately bitter coffee and hops balanced but malt and chocolate. Overall this is an excellent Stout.

The flavors of an imperial stout, but the alcohol and dryness of a stout. Black body with big-bubbled, tan head. Rich aroma of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. The flavor is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Very dry finish along with a coffee bitterness. Medium body and slightly watery texture. Velvety mouthfeel. Excellent.

Actually tastes like crappy acidic coffee. Some creamy oatmeal smoothness in there, but otherwise itís harsh and bitter. I donít mind the bitterness, but the acidity is too much. Somewhat watery as well. Smooth palate disappears quite fast and gets thin. Vanilla flavor is there as well. Flavorful, but just doesnít blow me away at all.

Thanks to my Secret Santa, July 2007: Pours oil can black with a healthy mocha head that slowly fades. The aroma is deep and rich - lots of dark chocolate, cocoa, vanilla bean, mocha, roasted malt and earth. The oats create a full and chewy mouthfeel, the perfect vehicle for the rich body. The body is loaded with bitter chocolate, caramel and espresso. A slight atringency from the coffee is the only real flaw I can see. Good, good stuff.
