UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Dark color and good smell. Leaves a dark chocolate/coffe after taste in your mouth. Its kinda borderline almost ashtray taste. Overall its better then the average and I will leave it on my list as a potential buys for a stout craving

The chocolate taste is enough for not making the beer too artificial. Well balance alcohol and hop.

gripweed57 (771) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Oh, this pours so luxuriously yielding a dense black color with a huge rocky tan head. Nice clinging lace. Rich cocoa malt nose. Bittersweet roasted malt flavor has notes of tobacco, roasted malt, oats and spicy hops. Reminiscent of charred wood in mid taste. Finish is chewy with notes of cocoa and dark roasted coffee. Very smooth and drinkable.

Pours a black with a medium khaki head that left moderate lacing around the glass.The aroma was most coffee and dark roasted malts and bitter chocolate. The taste is very similar but with a little bit of a bitterness to it.

Bottle from Katsuragawa Aeon. Deep black, small tan head that lasts. Huge malty chocolate aroma, just enough smoke. Incredibly smooth, but not too heavy and rich. First oatmeal stout I’ve had, well impressed.

What a piece of work is this ale. How black in color, how complex in maltiness. In flavor and mouthfeel, how rich and smooth. In hoppiness how like an IPA, in balance how like a stout. A beauty of the style. The paragon of dark brews. And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of grain? Thus concludes today’s bastardization of Shakespeare’s Hamlet for the sake of beer. Tune in next week for more Shakesbeerian readings.

22oz bottle in pint glass. Pitch black (no light passed) with 2 fingers light brown foam (medium persistence). Aroma is hoppy with notes of coffee, roasted malts, Chocolate. Pretty light. The bitter comes on early. Taste is more IPA than oatmeal, which is what I prefer to avoid in a stout. However, the Oatmeal starts to shine more after the first glass. Hoppiness sets this apart. Good beer in its own right. Score: A ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle at home, forget where from. Pours black, 1cm tan head that is hanging around really well, looks lovely. Aromas are coffee and oatmeal, burnt toast, dark chocolate. Taste brings a sweet prune note to the coffee and chocolate, more oats, light lingering roasted bitterness. Enjoyed this.
