DuffMan (7836) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle. Hearty looking very dark brown pour, with a tight brown bubbly head. Enticing rich roasty aroma. Flavour is chocolate and bitter roast, with nice intensity. Creamy supple mouthfeel, sweet but not overly so. Wow this drinks nicely!

Pours solid black with a thick frothy sticky brown head. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted oats, cream. Taste is nice and milky sweet with some burnt malt or dark chocolate bitterness on the finish. Very creamy texture with smooth carboantion. Very soft for 7.5%, and incredible for the price.

oregonducksfan (2) - Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2010 does not count
very rich tasting, but also very smooth... a little more carbonated than some others, but not in a bad way.

Pours black, with flashes of deep brown. Thin dark-tan head, quickly reduced, spotty lacing. Nose is malted milk, big oats, some fruit; Flavor is rich & sweet, great oat character, banana, toast, more milk chocolate. Great oatmeal stout; I just don’t find them terribly complex anymore...

MarinaMarket (219) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Love this beer...strong nutty, coffee, & chocolate flavors with a nice slightly bitter oaty finish. Beautiful brownish head and black as Wesley Snipes. Medium body with decent legs. A little oily & sticky too. Definitely sticks around the mouth for a bit. Tasted from the bottle @ 65°F. Get it if you can!
