A traditional stout using dark roasted malted barley to create a full-bodied ale. Rounded with the smooth flavor of oats, the addition of English Kent Goldings hops produces a creamy stout that has proven to be a favorite.

BCMike22 (80) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Poured into Red Sox pint glass. Pitch black, next to zero carbonation. Non-existent head. Nose isn’t over pronounced. Some malt, coffee scents. Easier to drink than I thought, thinner than it poured. A little lighter in the palate, but a great aftertaste rich w/coffee and chocolate. Nice combo of taste and drinkability.

Bottle at the November 2015 DC Gathering. Poured a near pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma was light chocolate, bitter malts. Flavor was light dark chocolate, some light licorice. Tasty.

Good but not my favorite stout. Has a bit of a sour bite to it. Can't seem to get past the sourness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at brewpub. Near black, light brown head. Caramel. Light roast (a little acidic?). Bit of licorice? Semi sweet. Mild bitterness. Light body. Fairly smooth. A little creamy. Pretty good.

Roasty, a little milky, very balanced, smooth, and creamy. A little simple, but still good.

loubar (156) - Los Gatos, California, USA - APR 9, 2015
Aroma of toffee and yeast. and hoppy hints. Pours an opaque dark brown with a fairly thick tan head that leaves some lacing. Taste is roasted malt with black cofffee and toffee notes. Super carbonated - not full-bodied, which may be the key to its drink-ability. Not bad but not particularly memorable.

Old rating. Forgettable stout. Chocolate, caramel, chewy, medium bodied. Nothing offensive nothing spectacular.

chinchill (3353) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2014
12 oz bottle. Label notching appears to indicate a bottled on date of Feb. 2014. Pours clear dark brown with a small head that soon reduces to a thin, partial coat. Aroma: sweet and overly floral with faint traces of dark malts. Flavor: Contaminated? Not so bad or off style that I am sure it is a bad bottle, but it certainly is a bad stout. Feel: mildly astringent; medium body.
