Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small, fizzy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate malt, sour dark fruit, and leather yeast. Flavor is light smoke, dark malt and fruity esters, light hops with a dry finish. Medium body, low warmth with medium carbonation.

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Draft at brewery, summer 2011: Roasty with some char and tar. A tad too sweet and a little cloying. Lots of toffee, creamed coffee and milk chocolate. Piney-grassy bitterness. Hints of fruit and flower petals in the background. Solid stout, but again, a bit too sweet for me.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Black in color, deep cola hues on the edges, moderate foamy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose, slight raisiny background.   Semi-sweet roasted malt flavors up front, a touch of semi- sweet fruitiness... also manages to have a slight fruity sourness as well.   Sweetness starts up front but quickly reveals to a little sourness.   Slight alcohol, a little unsweetened mocha or coffee lingers.   This is the first one I have had from Old Schoolhouse that doesn’t appear to be overly hopped.   Simple stout, not heavy, also not over the top hoppy.   Seems to focus more on its chalky roasted malt flavors, with hints of coffee bean and/or un-sweetened Mocha like flavors.   Not bad, and surprisingly easier to drink than their others.   Lingering roasted malts with some dry fruity sourness.   Not bad, less pungent than their other offerings.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottled and served in NB Worthy glassware: Pours nearly opaque with some sunset highlights topped by a small but lasting beige head and good lacing. The aroma has notes of bready, caramel, ashy, chocolate, vanilla, and nutty malts along with some PNW resiny hops, citric esters, and earthiness.

The taste is very well balanced, you can notice the malt character as well as some hops and overall tobacco coffee molasses leathery dark fruit tones. I really am enjoying this flavor profile and am utterly shocked as i expected little from this outta of the blue arrival. Even the mouth feel works wonderfully with the flavor profile, just enough carbonation without being heavy nor thin.

Shocked I tell ya, someone really knows me, they really do. Screw the white whales, find a beer off the radar that is really worth it and savor.

mbgrayson (551) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Pours very dark, almost black, with a thin tannish head. Taste is rich, with notes of chocolate and maybe licorice, and dark fruits. Smooth and well blended. This one is almost more of an imperial stout than a ’regular’ stout. Thumbs way up...

sloth (2520) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Large tan head with fair retention and some stringy spotty lace. Black with a teeny bit of red edging. Nose of chocolate and roast and a hint of berry. Medium bodied, soft carbo, creamy on the palate, oily. Basic chocolate and roast flavors, some milk chocolate and a little licorice, mild coffee as well. Lightly sweet roasty, bittersweet finish. Bomber from statelineliquors.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - APR 23, 2011
Dark black body, with a rich coffee colored head. Very sweet aroma, with some roastiness. Full bodied mouthfeel, silky, with bitter and slightly boozy heat at the finish. Flavor is actually fairly one dimensional roasty coffee, with fairly delicate sweetness and a subtle hop twang at the end. A decent stout, actually better than decent.

Solid black with a dense creamy brown head. Aroma of sweet malt and chocolate. Taste is sweet and smooth with a nice roasty finish. Nice flavor, the sweetness is not overwhelming. Medium rich body with soft smooth carbonation. Dry bitter finish.
