Bottle from the Beer Geek. Opaque black color with a decent light tan head. Sweet aroma of dark toasted malt. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet toasted malt with a little bitterness. Very pleasing. Finish is a bit sweet, but I guess that fits the style. It’s really good to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2003 This beer rocks!
It pours as a thick, oily black liquid. Only when held up to a high-powered halogen lamp is one enabled to behold the beautiful, deep crimson hue.
The medium-sized, creamy, khaki-colored head is mostly, but not fully, diminishing with decent lacing.
The aroma is of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee swirled with rich, Belgian milk chocolate. Small acrid, cherry and lightly floral notes.
The flavor is of creamy, dark roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, soy sauce and mild coffee up front. Well-hopped with moderate bitterness and tartness on the backside.
Full-bodied with a fizzy and moderately creamy mouthfeel.
Lengthy, sour, lightly bitter and mostly dry finish with more Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee at the very wee end.
It's what a stout should be. Nothing really sweet about the beer. My guess is that ANY OATMEAL Stout is classified as a sweet stout. Good stuff. Have one!
