Black pour with a thick tan head on it. Lots of lacing. Smells of light caramel sweetness with chocolate, molasses, a bit of fig, cola notes. Has coffee and char notes, light caramel, a lot of oats, slight dried fruit, finishes pretty bitter for an oatmeal stout with herbal/pine notes that linger afterwards. Pretty dry as stouts go. Smooth, silky moderately heavy body on this. I liked this more with each sip. A little ashier than I like, but very smooth drinking.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2011 Ultra-dark brown pour with a creamy tan head that quickly relaxes into a lace-yielding ring. Nose is deeply roasted malts, chicory, and cocoa. Flavor is the same and adds a nice aniseed note to go along with the roasted, chocolate goodness. Carbonation is ample, but mellow, and the mouthfeel is both creamy and slick. A slightly charred note compliments the ’sweet’ body, and enough hops are present to balance out the pleasantly chalky finish. A really nice sweet stout. A ’high score’, yes ... but this is simply one of my favorites. In this case, it is good to be a hooligan.

Faint aroma of roasted malts. Inky black in color with a quickly disappearing head. Toasty caramel flavor meshes nicely with deeply roasted malts. Very creamy, with lingering spruciness and slight char. This is very nice.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Cola body with a dense, chocolate cream head. Roast barley nose with deep roast coffee and chocolate liquor notes. Robust body replete with roast barley and chocolate liquor. Densely layered. This is more akin to an imperial sweet stout as the flavors are intense and dense, yet balanced with no roughness. Finely crafted.

22. Pours absolutely jet black with a dense and creamy, if short-lived, burnt tan head. Lots of stringy lace. Molasses, chocolate, and a bit of dates on the nose. Creamy, fairly thick body with active, if understated, carb. Roasty, dry, slightly ashy mid-palate with nice silky glide from the oats. Lots of black patent in this one. Mildish roasty finish, fairly dry. They lean to the arid with their dark beers.
