Average. Aroma is roasted malt with some dark fruit notes. Taste is lots of roasted barley flavor with some faint caramel and raisin notes. Finish is a slightly smooth with very little body--would have like more body...

Nearly black with a tiny tan head.
Alcohol, chocolates, and coffee in the nose.
Roasted barley - slightly smoky, slightly rubbery. Reminds me a bit of a pinotage in the smokiness/rubberiness (I happen to enjoy a good pinotage, so this is a plus for me).

Pours black with a thin off white ring. Aroma is roasted malts, oatmeal and bitter chocolate. Taste is just a great basic oatmeal stout. Well made, no glaring errors.

Bottle received in trade, just short of two years now. Black, a tad thin in head and taste. Lots of lace. Interesting now. Strangely boozy aroma.

I liked it. I thought it was a really smooth and sweet stout. Had some of the sweeter elements of caramel throughout.
