riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Coffee, roast, dark bitter chocolate, oily hops in the nose. Light sweetness as well. Pours black, oily with a soft tan head. The flavor starts off with a blast of roast and coffee, moves to dark bittersweet chocolate with light sweetness throughout, then moves to an oily hop bitterness in the back end. Dry and bitter with nice underlying sweetness. Creamy and almost oily body. Really a very enjoyable sweet stout.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Bomber. Poured a rich, deeper brown with a short-lived tan head. The aroma picked up sweet and buttery chocolates, vanilla, and molasses with a touch of cola on the edges.. cake-like and enticing. The flavor found more molasses and some black patent maltage at the core.. sweet milky chocolates and rolled oats on the edges.. finished sweet, but with a fine complement of roast and alcohol warmth. Medium-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. balance was solid, but it could’ve used more bubbles.. I’d gladly drink more.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2010
Wash. DC tasting. woot, some tasty treat here. dark brown color, perfect tan head. aroma, ark malts, some light elements adding for a nice milky-like nose, fruity with some sweet notes. flavors, deep malty flavors, coffee and espresso flavors with moderate touch of milk-chocolate, cocoa nibs. A lot going on here, palate is smooth and creamy with a nice lingering coffee/espresso finish. Some faint bitter hops peek through here and there, but overall this is one delicious sweet stout.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 Courtesy of northernbrews

Bottle: The aroma is a really nice combination of chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla cream, and faint coffee. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head. The flavor starts with chocolate and roasted malt. The chocolate intensifies in the finish along with vanilla cream and a hint of coffee. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Very tasty.

eaglefan538 (2828) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle from SL. The appearance was deep dark black. The aroma was chocolate, dark fruits, anise, faint roast. The flavor followed with licorice and some smokey/char elements. Mouthfeel was full if not a bit acidic. Overall, a bit bitter to astringent even, lacking the oatmeal bite in the best of these, although others with me liked it a bit.
