KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a thick muddy dark black with a large (2-3 finger) tan creamy head that had great retention, receding slowly down to a medium cap with excellent thick sheets of spotty lacing. The aroma was sweet and roasty up front with some burnt cereal malts, mild resin hops and a doughy leathery yeasty and had notes of molasses, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and a nice smooth oat presence. The taste was extremely malty and a tad roasty sweet with hints of molasses and chocolate early on, becoming bitter sweet with a mild creamy oat presence and a nice dose off coffee towards the finish. The flavor stuck around for a good long while following the swallow, with a bold bitter roastiness left lying on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was full in body with a smooth, dry texture and a very soft carbonation. Overall this brew was tremendously tasty and possessed an awesome body along with a fantastic drinkability, which all together did a great job of concealing the somewhat high ABV...

Black color with mocha head. Aroma has dark fruits, mostly figs, brown sugar and sweet malt. Taste is really well balanced. First you get the rich malt, followed by a roasty bitterness. Body is not heavy but feels really smooth. Overall it’s a tasty, easy drinking stout with a nice mouthfeel.

Fantastic, well balanced stout! Pours black w/ a good mocha head that leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is rich w/ a nice mix of chocolate sweetness & roasted notes. The taste is slightly bitter dark chocolate & finishes on the sweeter side. It’s complex & tasty! Well done!

leghorn99 (219) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 19, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere di colore nero corvino; formando una spessa schiuma, cremosa, beige, che si dissipa abbastanza rapidamente. Aroma di malto tostato, cioccolato e caffè. Esordio in bocca amaro, con un bel mix di luppoli e malto scuro; vira poi su note più dolci di avena per proseguire su quelle di frutta scura. Morbida ed oleosa in bocca, dal corpo medio-pieno e dalla bassa carbonazione; un accenno di liquirizia e note tostate di caffè. Nel finale ricca presenza di cioccolato fondente ed una leggera presenza alcolica.

Correctly identified this as a sweet stout, the flavor is medium-bodied with some sweetness but not too much. Pretty solid.

Clean oatmeal stout. Well made, nice alcoholic warmth. But nothing spectacular to stick out from the crowd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
