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.

sloth (2689) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Small, light tan head, retention is good, lacing is stringy and thickly coating. Black bodied brew. Nose is faint roast, chocolate and a bit grainy. Med/light body with lightly oily mouthfeel. Roast and chocolate flavors are subdued, black malt? Dry maltiness and some dark fruits. Finish is dry and lightly roasty. Sense a problem with this beer as a bit of sourness is showing itself, somewhat distracting from the overall. Bottle received in a trade with cbkschubert, thanks Craig!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 24, 2006
Poured a very dark brown color witha small tan head. Highly roasted aroma, light tartness and some smoke. The aroma was creamy and sweet. Notes of brown sugar. While the aroma sounds complex and good it was alittle odd to me. The flavor was very roasty and tart. Bitter roasty finish. Very thin body.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a tiny, creamy, beige head. No retention. Lots of milk chocolate in the nose with some dark cherries and caramel. The flavor is medium bitter with lots of burnt notes and no residual sweetness, even when warm. Just a hint of acidity. Light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Lengthy, burnt, moderately bitter finish. FlacoAlto provided the bottle!

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 20, 2008
12oz bottle. Black with a weird, huge, rootbeer float type head that fills 2/3 of the glass upon tasting. The aroma is milder in intensity, but strong on roasted malts and barley, with a mild acidity. Flavor is dry, burnt, and slightly sour. Like a more flavorful Guinness. Light body with aggressive carbonation. Not getting much oat, body, or sweetness for that matter. Drinkable, but not something that i would go for in the presence of alternatives.

Aromas of burnt coffee, fermented fruits and bitter cocoa and some floral hops, pours a brownish black body with a small quick head the dissappears suddenly, flavor is dr. pepper like with notes of burnt coffee and cocoa, there is a light creaminess but a little too watery body and a dry. Overall, drinkable, but just one time, Next!

BelgianBeerGal (3500) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Bottle via trade with nbutler11. Pours a slick dark brown with no head. Aroma is roasted malt and some bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel is rather thin. Not a strong flavour but hints of more chocolate, some metal, a touch of hops some smoke in the end. Nothing spectacular but drinkable.

arminjewell (8857) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Pours black with tan head, aroma is burnt malt. Taste is a bit watery, but with burnt malt and chocolate/coffee after taste that is made creamier by the oatmeal. Not bad!

auerbrau (3199) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2007
12 Oz Bottle via footy. Flat cardboard and white toast aroma. Light salted caramels. Faint roast. Spills a deep black-brown, with mahogany fringes and rim of tanned soap. Flavor is a static, wet, plain brown sugar and plum flavor. Old tasting. Bits of ocean flotsam. Finishes in the higher metallic range. Salted. Pretty weak stout base. Body is a nip thin. Soured coffee grains. Does not excel. A bit too still, but more carbonation would have blasted through the empty body of the beer, making it even less desirable.
