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...

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!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 3/5/2010. This sweet stout pours an eclipse black color from a 22oz bottle. Medium to full sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee and a touch of vanilla. A medium bodied sweet/oatmeal stout. The malts are roasty, chocolate and coffee. The hops are herbal. Nice carbonation. Seems a little overly roasted and a touch thin in the mouth for a oatmeal stout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bevmo. Poured a dark brown/black color with a smallish, milky brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, oatmeal, coffee, earth, molasses and citrus. Not much sweetness in the flavor, but it was a quality beer. Alot of coffee, nuts and roasted malt. More sweetness would have been preferred to provide some balance. Some earthiness in the finish. Expected a bit more, but it was good.

Great oatmeal stout flavor but falls a bit in body. Super smooth initially but leaves a nice finish with a slight coat in the throat. The head was a beautiful foam.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Rating #117. Dense, dark black pour with a very full and thick dark tan head, moderate lacing, it stuck for a brief moment before it started rolling down the glass. Roasty light chocolate aroma, very nice. Roasty, smoky flavor, very smoky as a matter of fact, it really sticks to the tongue. Nice and smooth, but it was a little too roasty/smoky for my taste.
