Pours jet black with just a trace of tan head. Aroma is not as stong as Iíd expect, chocolate and burnt malts. Taste is malts and oatmeal with a wave of hops coming through for a bittersweet finish. Thick mouthfeel. Overall an excellent oatmeal stout.

I donít know if this was an "off" batch or what. But it has an aroma like a used ashtray. Taste is slightly better than the aroma but it is not a very good oatmeal stout IMO. I see others have rated it alot higher than me, so Iíll get another bottle later and re-evaluate then.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is very coffee-like with a lot of roasted malts. Taste follows the nose. Not as smooth or silky as I usually expect from an oatmeal stout. Not bad, but Iíve had better.

poured out see through brownish ruby colored with a finger thick head that was of white mocha colored which was bubbly but thick. there is lacing around around the glass and the head fell fast but "slowly". you can tatse bitter sweet chocolate and roasted coffee which all go together very well. it finishes really nice with a plesent aftertaste which will please your palate.

12oz bottle. Pours dark dark brown with light white head. Not a ton of flavor and not real bitter. Taste is roastiness with hints of coffee. Lacks something that other great stouts have. Decent and drinkable though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours almost black, finger and a half creamy dense tan head, lots of lacing. Aroma chocolate, roast, toasty, slight coffee and earthy hops. Taste creamy milk chocolate, lactose sweetness, roast, hint of coffee and bready malt. Mouthfeel fuller body, lower carbonation, very creamy, sweet finish. Overall tasty, well made, perhaps not my favorite style, but this is a classic example.
