SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2010
A- Presents with a dark brown-nearly black body that is very hesitant to let the light shine through. Pours with a massive 2-3 finger tan head which slowly fades to a nice thick collar. S-The nose is HUGE and the overall impression that I am getting is strong, dark coffee with big dark roasted malt coming through the most. There is just the slightest hint of vanilla in the background that keeps things nicely in check. T-Deep, dark, heavy roasted malt is the main character upfront-this is the main and dominating character. It fades just enough to let a hint of vanilla come through for the finish but that "BIG BLACK COFFEE" character is dominant the whole way through. P-Medium tingly carbonation with a heavy, somewhat sticky body. O-This brew has HUGE flavor for a non-imperial stout. Its a big beer all around. Its nice to see a small beer packed with tons of big beer flavor-but it does seem kinda one dimensional at times. If coffee beers are your thing-then this beer is definitely for you-if not-stay away.

NachlamSie (2737) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2010
Tap at Clyde Common. Pours near black, no head. Aroma packs an espresso punch with dark chocolate, sea weed, and earth. Man. This tastes great, though it strikes me more as a porter. Lots of seaweed and ash are noted along with great espresso definition. Even roasted bitterness through out. Great beer.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 11, 2010
Tap at Cornucopia Downtown in Eugene, Black body, thin brown head, aroma is dark roasts and rich coffee, flavor is dark chocolate, mildly chalky, mild sweetness but really pretty dry, big thick body - filling stout texture, rich coffee bean, doesnít taste like enough to caffeinate you (try Bellís Java stout) but enough to taste, good stout and it did its job after a bike ride out in the rain

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2010
Draft on tap at the Flossmoor Map Room Event (Chicago, IL). Pours a pitchblack pour, a good body, thick cakey light brown head, laces ok. Aromas are heavy cold espresso, coffee bena sna droasted malt tempered with a touch of dark cocoa. Roasty, with good coffee feel. Initial is roasty, cold espresso, coffee benas, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Thinner bodied, sessionable. Heavy roast flavors. Good drinkability, great flavors for a more drinkable stout. Tasty, with roast and coffee lingering. Pairs well with cocoa. A nice roasty, stout, heavy coffee influence but not overbearing on the palate. Tasty.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2010
Oakshire espresso stout...pours a medium dense black pour with cola brown edges... Huge espresso coffee nose with very little of anything else. One dimensional but fairly nice... Big coffee espresso flavors, somewhat thin but pretty nice with a coffee grind finish. Aforementioned thin body but not too bad of an offering 8/3/7/3/14

beernbourbon (1288) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 8, 2010
Tap. Pour is black with a nice tan head. Aroma is huge espresso with a lingering roasted malt component. Not really much else. Flavor is also huge deep roasted espresso with hints of roasted malt. Not too much else shines through. Itís potent and maybe one dimensional but solid and delivers what it promises.
