Thanks to beer handy for this. I had this after a Boulevard Dry Stout and a few oyster crackers, and the Boulevard Stout is better than this by 0.3-0.5. This one pours black with ruby edges and a big off-white head. Aroma of dark malt, chocoff, cabernet. Tastes roasty malty, with chocoff and some fruitiness in the finish. Somewhat light in palate and not a pinnacle of complexity, but very good.

Pours Obsidian with amber highlights and a light tan head. The foam was funky smelling (Horsy) but as it faded the aroma of Coffee and dark malts are evident. I thought the taste was typical Roasted barley ,bitter dark grains, Hops in the middle none in the finish. What I found most disappointing was the lack of “oatmeal” character… you know the oiliness or creamy mouthfeel that can be achieved with this adjunct.

Pours a dark brown color with medium tan head. Nose is malty and chocolate. Flavor is sweet, smoky, coffee and caramel with dark fruit overtones. This beer finishes clear and clean, although the smoky aftertaste lasts. Excellent.

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2004
Bottled, post DC gathering. Red/brown colour. Not that dark. Dry, roast malt aroma. Vague chocolate and a touch of licorice on the palate. Slightly thin mouthfeel. Decent, but not too rich and not too inspiring.

No real head on this beer. Taste is average at best. Slightly disapointed by this brew.

Had this at the DC/MD/VA/WV/PA gathering. Bottled courtesy of hopscotch. We also got a second bottle and drank this the next night. Dark brown to near black with a slight ruby hue around the edges. Nose is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and cocoa. Not unlike most of the style. Taste is more roatsed malt, coffee, faint licorice, and cocoa. Body is carbonated but not a rich as hoped feel-wise. Finsiehs with more roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Decent but nothing I haven’t had before.

Pours dark. Aroma is of a slight chocolate. Flavor of slight watery chocolate and a slight coffee. Not bad but a bit watery.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Really dark color that wouldnt let any light through. I’m liking this stuff already. Roasty malts and sweet oatmeal aromas make the anticipation even greater. The flavor is a lot of the above with just the right amount of sweetness. Could use a bit more hop bite but thats just my two cents. Really enjoyable.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Very heavy oatmeal, almost has a little bit of steak aroma... pretty effing odd. Body is of a typical stout, black with a thin tan head. Taste is chocolate and oatmeal... pretty standard oatmeal stout, nothing great, but a good beer to drink on ocassion. Mouthfeel is a little rougher then I’d like though.

Sampled at the DC/MD/VA/WV/PA Ratebeer Gathering 11/20/04. Pours a clear brown with a light brown head. Lightly roasty malty aroma. Taste has notes of chocolate, roasty malt and oats. Could use more body, was a little light. Overall solid.
