Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 12, 2009
12 oz bottle via trade. My first beer from my parents home state of New Jersey. Pours out dark brown with a 2 inch tan head and big blotches of lacing. Aroma is malt chocolate, oats, light coffee. Flavor is mostly chocolate and oat, with some milkiness and a wee bit of coffee. Very sweet beer, but quite enjoyable, went down very easily. Would definitely drink this one again.

A sweet stout. Lots of that "milk" stout taste lingering with some of the roastyness of an oatmeal. Not too dark. Medium body.

Heathen (1444) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 28, 2009
THOUGHTS: A really nice beer. Tons of flavor and fairly easy to drink. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark brown that was nearly black in the glass with slight red highlights and an average, tan head that kept a thin sheet and left fair lacing. The aroma was moderate to heavy roasted, burnt, sour and oaty malt, light milk chocolate and mild coffee, and very light hops. The initial flavor was sweet, bitter, slightly acidic and sour; while the finish was very sweet, bitter and sour with an average duration. There was roasted malt, sour malt, oats, chocolate, slight coffee, and toward the end a slight fruitiness. The medium to full body was creamy with lightly fizzy carbonation and a light astringent finish.

My bottle (12oz) shared with garthicus. Pours a a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size diminishing frothy light-brown head. Dry, roasty aroma along with coffee, chocolate and oatmeal. Flavour of roasted malt, coffee, some lactic notes, nuts and a hint of hops. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Surprisingly quite good.

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2009
12oz Bottle: Pours very dark brown w/ a one finger brown head. Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate & something sweet (almost like condensed milk or something). Flavor has heavy roasted malts, a hint of chocolate an ashy/smokiness...also a bit of grain Just the right amount of bitter w/ a coffee aftertaste left behind. Very good.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle… Pitch black ale with a small, frothy, beige head. Good retention. The luxuriant, sweet aroma presents chocolate, nuts and lots of vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is roasty and fairly sweet and imparts shades of chocolate, nuts and coffee. Finishes crisp and mildly sweet. Kudos to scraff for floating a bottle of this beer my way!
