Bottle to glass. Aroma has some roasted malts. Sweet smell. Heavy notes of coffee and chocolate. A little toasty as well. Nice black pour with moderate beige head. Nice and smooth. Moderate carbonation. Not as sweet as I h ad expected from the aroma. Slight bitterness on the finish. Not bad, but not as good as I expected

Smokey, full-bodied and nutty. The perfect winter beer to warm up to, I think...........

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very nice chocolate oatmeal stout. Doesn’t have the body or complexity of Victory Storm King or Founders Imperial Stouts. No surprise there. Very drinkable and a superior example of the "Chocolate Oatmeal Stout" breed. Lesser brews should be considered "Nevermore".

1/14/13 Bottle Four Firkins SLP, MN.
Pours jet black with disappating tan head, very little lacing. Aroma is oats and slight raw cocoa. Taste is grain roasted malt bitter cocoa aftertaste. Very palatable and it hides the 8% well. Very smooth and drinkable, not the best choco stout I’ve had but pretty darn good.
