3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is an opaque dark brown (almost black) color with a medium beige head that dissipates slowly. Thin curtain of lacing throughout the glass. The aroma is very roasty, with coffee and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied and closer in consistency to a Porter than a Stout. Roasted coffee at the forefront, with molasses, chocolate and some hops in the flavor. The finish is mildly bitter and roasty. Overall this is a pretty good Stout, but it is lacking richness.

Decent Oatmeal stout, started out very nice, got a little boring by the end, but overall good.

A blackish stout, minimal head. Faint roast, some malt in the nose. About average mouthfeel,which is below average for this style. Modest sourness. Drinkability is about average. A decent beer, but not best representation of style.

Pretty nice stout. Black pour wtih a small brown head. Aroma is pretty weak, but i do smell the typical coffee and cocao. Some molasses on the nose and togue. Beer is faintly sweet and has some nice balance. Nice beer to try, but not one to seek out on a regular basis.

Bottle... Black ale with a mid-sized, frothy, well-tanned head. Good retention. Milk chocolate and caramel aroma. Well rounded, burnt, chocolaty notes in the flavor. Medium bitter with good balance. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Roasted, mildly burnt, lightly bitter finish. Lots of milk chocolate overall. Reminds me just a bit of Weyerbacher’s Old Heathen. Thanks go out to WBC for the bottle!

Tasted on tap at the International Tap House in St. Louis, Missouri. Dark orange-brown appearance (a bit off for a Stout). Nice sweet stout aroma . Flavor is pretty smooth but dark malts aren’t as obvious in the flavor as a stout should be.

Courtesy of Sammy. Brow/black with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. The flavour has a nice sweetness, a smooth, full body, notes of coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and it ends slightly dry. It’s nice, charming and uncomplicated.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Better than I expected, it pours a near black more deep ruby brune with a light sandy yellow head. Nice nitro looking retention and sheety lace. Aroma is Whoppers milk balls, milk chocolate. Taste is ashy, bitter, cherry syrup, tobacco. Thinner palate. Eh.
