Fount the bottle sitting idle on the shelf in an out of the way bar/restaurant in Baden, PA and snatched it up for under two dollars. What a find --- nearly perfect and no complaints.

A friend brought me about 20 different beers to sample from the northern mid west. From the moment I opened this beer, I knew I had found one that I would have to have more. It’s dark color gives the impression of a heavy beer but this stout has a smooth texture and a robust aftertaste.

Oh yeah. If a stout and a porter had a love child, it would be this. Hints of coffee and, to a lesser extent, chocolate come through, but it has the smoothness of a stout. Great beer. I’d like to have several more of these.

Good stuff, but Oatmeal Stouts usually are. Not as smooth as others, but that might be in the bottle. I have had smoother and creamier, but still very good.

Pours raven black with a creamy tan head. Coffee, chocolate and oatmeal greet the nose. Taste is chock full of dark roasted malt with chocolate and coffee notes accompanied by an unparalleled creaminess. Very muted hops. Pouring and enjoying this beer is poetry in motion. Pairs well with beef, soft-ripened cheeses and chocolate.

Light bodied stout, dark rich color, small head. Hints of hops and malt in the aroma. Rich smooth chocolate flavor on first taste, mellowing off to a light coffee flavor on the finish. Great beer, would buy again.

Poured from the bottle a deep brown/black with a beautiful tan head. Not much aroma, but a bit of chocolate and raisins. Malty and rich, balanced with distant hops. This beer has a silky mouthfeel. A delight to drink.
