On tap at Hamiltons. Pours with a black body topped by a thick brown head wtih a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet and full of coffee, vanilla and an artificial chocolate note (reminds me of Cocoa powder). Light bodied for a stout and smooth.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Tap @ La Jolla location. Pours dark brown with a nice cascading tan head. Caramel, cocoa, oatmeal, and hot fudge in the aroma. Sticky on the tongue, but overall more of a dry stout mouthfeel. Chocolate milkshake with malt, and some espresso in the taste. Dry finish. A nice, silky smooth stout.

(Draft: Rock Bottom in Irvine, CA) Competent, but not outstanding, this beer is balanced, flavorful, pleasant, but still seems lighter in flavor than other oatmeal stouts; Strong dark roasted maltiness with only a moderate oatmeal flavor; Mildly sweet; Fairly bitter, but the bitterness is in balance and complementary to the maltiness; Hardly anything in the nose; Black and opaque, even at the edges; Huge, tall, tan head has great retention and good lacing

Delectably delectable...i think! It pours a mean black hue with a thin scattering of orangey head which dissipates mighty quick. The aroma is choco-cocoa...! The taste...is more choco-cocoa, but it is just beautifully put together. Mocha, chocolate, cocoa and a hint of sweet coffee mixed in with more chocolate malt finish this dry beer. Nicely done indeed. I want more!

A voyage into the deepest blackness occurs upon visual inspection of this brew. Big ass chocolate in the araoma and continutues into the body of the beer, Damn impressive, just like a nice piece of dark chocolate. Most impressive.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 Cask-conditioned draught: Dark brown, head bigger than the beer, nice nutty/chocolatey aroma, HUGE chocolate flavor and very sweet...The closest a beer can come to pure milk-chocolate

Toasty bitter chocolate flavor with a hint of coffee. Sweet but with a thin mouthfeel. A solid stout.

Right on! Good to see this beer on the boards! My wife actually discovered and fell in love with this beer - we order it by the pitcher at the Irvine, CA location. Very tasty & smooth stout. Heavily leans towards roasted/burnt malts, bakers/bitter chocolate and cofee. BIG FLAVORS. Wouldn’t exactly call it sweet, but certainly smoother than hoppy stouts and is bitterSWEET. When visiting SoCal - give this a try - its my fav local brewpub micro draught stout.
