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.

radio_nowhere (1045) - Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Draft at Ruddy Duck Tavern in Morehead City, NC served in a pint glass. Opaque black color with darker tan head. Aroma notes of heavy coffee, chocolate and roasted malt sweetness. Taste adds is not as coffee strong as aroma led on, more dark chocolate leaning, caramel, some ash and light earthy hop bitterness. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with coffee roast finish. Overall pleasant chocolate/coffee stout, tastes richer than its ABV.

Tap, black pour, tan head, nose and taste are both lots of chocolate, bitter, wow

OldGrowth (2864) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2014
bottle, from Bottle Revolution, RDU. Good aroma, sweet, malty. Coffee, chocolate, toffee. dark orangy brown color, not much head and what was faded quicly away to nothing, no lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish. Itís good, pleasant in aroma and flavor, loses a point or two on flat appearance.

b3shine (6364) - Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Draft to pint. Looks good; a fairly opaque dull black with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and roast with an average mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

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.

chandler0201 (649) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2013
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

maxwelldeux (4125) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2013
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 (4009) - 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.
