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.

Dogbrick (9350) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Sample at the Lambert St. Louis airport location. The beer is a nearly opaque dark brown color with a thick and foamy light beige head that burns off slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and milk chocolate, with a hint of mocha. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Sweet caramel malt, chocolate and grain flavors with traces of hops and coffee. The finish remains smooth (bordering on watery actually) and sweet with a lingering sweetness. Above average overall.

Bottle. Chocolate and sour milk malt aroma. Medium brown color with moderate head. Chocolate milk malt flavor with dry grass hops finish. Nice but light.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours nice black with tan head, aroma has notes of chocolate, roast, oats, and a touch of coffee. Taste is oat, roast, and a touch of chocolate/coffee mix, finishing slightly bitter. A bit one-dimensional, but a quality, solid beer.

3fourths (8554) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2004
From bottle and tap. Bottle smelled like butt... musty and thick chocolate. Tap didn't have much flavor to offer at all. Watery but gritty. Just a little roasted malts.

DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2005
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.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
My Bottom Line :
Roasted malts turn to dark chocolate in this lean, quaffable Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the brown-hued blackness.
-The carbonation is a tad too much for my tastes in the style.
-The chocolate-y finish is long and highly pleasant.
-Leafy hops tag along and eventually create balance.

Bottle.

DrSilverworm (8347) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2011
12oz bottle. Almost total black color, nice brown head fading to minimal, some lace. Carbonation is a little pronounced, but crisp enough. Great roasty coffee aftertaste. Great oaty aroma, nice hearty big body. Good sweet taste. A satisfying, easy to drink, oatmeal stout.

DSG (8346) - Tel Aviv, - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Vova’s place. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Black with a tan head. Aroma of lots of coffee, cocoa, roasted grains and a bit of drier dark fruits. Roasty flavor, slightly sweetish, slightly smoky, with coffee, some chocolate and a drier finish. Medium-bodied, slightly creamy oatmeal mouthfeel. A nice one.

BVery (7891) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Tap. Brown pour, tan head. Mild aroma of roasted malts. Taste is malty and coffee. Medium bodied and lightly hopped.
