Bottle. Thanks to Mobe for this one! Pours a deep brownish black color with a foamy head that rapidly dissipates. Flavor is nice roasted dark chocolate notes and hints of oatmeal. Finish is slightly bitter with notes of coffee and dry hops. Light bodied for a stout, otherwise pretty good.

Tripplebrew (774) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Pours an opaque chocolate brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is intense roasted malts and thick roasted coffee notes with earthy undertones of fresh bread. Flavor is very malty with hop undertones mixed with chocolate coffee. Earthy wood-like flavors also come through. Body is a mix of creamy light with the fair carbonation present.

22 oz. bottle- Pours black with a tan head, aroma is chocolate malt and oatmeal. The flavor is a very smooth, rich, and one tasty son of a bitch, pretty good shit. In this beer the alcohol is not hidden, it is one of the main things you taste, but it also has a very nice creamy flavor to it.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Bottle shared by Max. Dark roasty, quality coffee aroma, with a nice sweet, nutty caramel in the back. When swirled it gets a bit skunky and vegetal. Nice milky flavor, creamy — at first it was milky in a kind of spoiled milk way — with a mild carbonation and oaty finish. Quite nice, actually.

Dark with no head. Smells like burnt coffee. Flavor is same. Thin mouthfeel. Not a winner.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Pours deep brown with a minimal tan head that dissipated quickly. Smells of cinnamon oatmeal with some cocoa. Palate is a little thin for this style. Taste is fairly yummy though, with a lot of bittersweet chocolate coming to the forefront while the cinnamon lingers on.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Roasted coffee and toasty bread wrapped up in creamy oats. Now I just need some bacon. Black with a sticky thick tan head. Creamy body, sweet from the grain, not very sugary. Medium/full roast, strongly lingering.

Pours beautifully with a perfect head. Aroma is faint of chocolate and coffee grounds. The flavor is very good, it starts out smooth and then goes sweet. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

22 ounce bomber thanks to footbalm. Pours a beautiful black color with a medium light brown head, looks like a nice brew! The aroma is light grains, coffee and hints of ash. The flavor is similar; a smooth and straightforward grainy coffee flavor, light fruity hops, smooth and almost bitter in the finish. Pretty good. Quaffable.
