Our darkest ale is a true American Stout. Black as a moonless night and full of chocolate and roasted barley flavor, This beer has a creamy, velvety texture from the oats and finishes smooth.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Bomber. Poured a healthy shade of deep brown with way too much deep tan head going on. The aroma picked up semi-sweet chocolate and rolled oats, with a detergenty character laced throughout.. warm molasses filled the back of the nose.. a bit airy and seemed a touch off. The flavor found molasses and burnt cocoa at the core, with odd, almost metallic, almost sour, kinda detergenty stuff laced throughout, and heavy roast on the edges.. finished dry and grainy, with more of the odd stuff. Medium-bodied and too carbonated on the palate.. the carbo hurt the assumed creaminess.. this seemed like it may have been infected, and I’d gladly try it again.

bytemesis (6949) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a small brown head that dissipates quickly. Strong aroma of coffee and heavily roasted malt. Taste mimics nose, but with a moderately bitter finish. A bit watery on the palate.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Black, large pillowy light brown head, clumpy lacing.   Sweet roasted malts on the nose, lactose, oatmeal, a little chocolate.   Sweet malts on the tongue, very little hop bitterness.   Goes down easy, isn’t too heavy.   Sweet to start, has a bit of dry chalkiness on the backside.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Somewhat drops off quickly, but remains clean.   Decent little oatmeal stout.   Could use a little more umph tho.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6839) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small soapy dark tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was black licorice, wood and a bit of tobacco. The flavor was bitter, roasty and woody with notes of licorice and tobacco. The finish was long and quite bitter with lingering roastiness, licorice and wood. Medium body and fairly smooth texture. Ok.

Strykzone (6753) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bomber from Hayduke. We had a bottle together via facebook chat. What a gusher! This beer should be corked and caged for safety. The pressure both of our bottles were under were dangerously high. While poured it was also massive foam for every pour. The aroma was roasted and chocolate notes with some cream. Those were prominent flavor themes. Later I tasted hops that might have been Cascade. They brought bitterness and citrus. After that some spice was tasted. The carbonation aside, this was a really good beer and I found it right down the middle per style. Patience is required with this one but it is rewarded nicely.

drfabulous (6665) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 16, 2011
22 ounce bottle thanks to JohnCoctosin Finally opened this one. Big carbonated head that fills most of the glass. A bit of a metallic nose with chocolate taste. Ok body. Decent overall. Lacking mostly in nose and overall oatmeal stout quality.

Braudog (6377) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Draft 1/2 pint at the brewery’s tasting room. Dark black with a nice creamy tan head. Creamy consistency to the drink, too. Almost bittersweet chocolatey, you could use this in lieu of baking chocolate. Nice. (#3590, June 2009)
