COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, buttery oatmeal stout with undercurrents of cocoa and coffee. The grain additions in this beer are designed to impart chocolate, toffee, and caramel notes without overt bitterness, creating a smooth, drinkable stout. Aged on cocoa nibs; locally roasted cold-brewed coffee added post-fermentation.

22oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Black hue, zero visibility with fizzy one finger thick light brown fully lasting head. Virtually no lacing. Some chocolate notes, but more roasted coffee aroma. Light bitter chocolate up front with a light malt and roasted coffee finish. I thought this was a pretty solid stout.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2013
On tap at Tylerís, Durham, several months back. Probably the most consistent and well realized stout Iíve had from Mystery. Oily dark brown body with a medium filmy head, some sticky lacing. Nose of deep dark chocolate, hints of molasses, smoke, and coffee. A bit of Tootsie Roll creeps into the flavor, but mostly bitter dark choc and coffee, with a pleasantly substantial body.

Black pour with decent sized tan head. Aroma of coffee and some dark chocolate. Flavor of dark chocolate with some coffee bitterness. Very thin body, with a bit of a watery finish in the mouthfeel. Iíve had much better homebrew of the same beer style to be honest.

Very coffee heavy, but still quite palatable. Chocolate notes come through in aftertaste

Growler. Pours a thick and almost black color with a small off-white head. Nose has strong roasting and coffee notes in there, which always makes for a great stout. Taste has a lot of the coffee in there as well, but with some subtle hints of chocolate underneath. Very smooth drink.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Draft at Venable in Carrboro. Black with a small tab head. Strong roasted malt and coffee nose, fairly one-demensional but nice. Flavor is similar, kinda watered down coffee flavor, very thin for the style. Still much more of a solid offering than anything Iíve had from Erik so far. Kudos.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2012
From growler. Oily black color, minuscule khaki head. Nose of milk chocolate and a touch of coffee. A creamy, light bodied chocolate stout where the coffee and dark malts play second fiddle to the chocolate. A slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Itís tasty when cold, but as it warms, it gets a bit sour in the finish. A nice sessionable option for a chocolate stout.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2012 Not a bad beer. Not as thick as i thought it would be. Still a solid entry and would like it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Revised From Beerlicious iphone App: Strong coffee aroma, black and clear with minimal head. Had it in at beer fest. Light bitterness to medium bitterness. Short duration Medium body with oily texture. Soft carbonation (think i had it in a cask)

Had this at the Homebrew for Hunger event. Dark black with ruby chestnut edges and two fingers of creamy chestnut tan head. Nose is rich and roasty, notes of cold pressed coffee and bakers chocolate with hints of malt sweetness. Cold pressed coffee and roast upfront with some acidity from the grain/coffee and bakers chocolate bitterness. Medium body, coffee thins it a little as is often the case.
