UPDATED: SEP 17, 2009 Re-rated 9/17/2009: Bottle pours a nice deep brown/black with ruby edges and three fingers of fluffy, cream-colored head. Condenses quickly, laces well. Smells of porridge (super oat-y) and hops, tastes similar. Flavor is fairly simplistic, just a good amount of roasted malt and oats and that signature sweetness from the caramel malt. Smooth, medium body, and the extra 1% ABV helps this one beat out its Boulevard counterpart (the first StL win in my KC vs. StL showdown!) Original Ɠ.5) - 5/2/2009: Tasting glass at Parkville Micro Brew Fest 2009. Possibly the best stout at the festival! Deep brown with thick white head. Very roasty in aroma and flavor, with subtle oat undertones.

MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 23, 2002
A little too thin for my tastes. Oatmeal sweetness was not very appearent until the beer warmed up. Beautiful color, nice head and lacking aroma. A decent oatmeal stout.

12 oz bottle (thanks to Brant). This was a pretty decent, roasty, oatmeal stout. A good balance of herbal hops and caramel notes as well. Pours creamy deep cream head, with a deep coffee brown body. Roasted coffee, hazy lactic sugar, caramel malts, dark toasted malt, herbal, and earth on the nose. Body has a good balance between moderate carbonation and cream. Light booze as well for a 6% abv, but very well balanced. Rich, roasted grains, coffee, caramel up front. More herbal, light sweet fruits, more of a toffee, and earth. Finishes quite bitter. An enjoyable stout overall.

Pours an opaque brownish black with tan head, creaminess, fair lacing. Roasted, nutty malt with light hop flavor to it. Flavors of oatmeal and tobacco. Full bodied with soft carbonation. light sweet and bitterness that is well balanced. This is a great stout.

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...

Draft in shaker glass. This beer is nearly black in color with a creamy persistant head and a solid lacing that obscures the outside of the glass. It has a faint unpleasant metallic aroma. You can taste oatmeal (suprising, eh?) and a bit of coffee and roasted barley. It’s very good and extremely drinkable. This is an excellent stout despite its unpleasant aroma.

Pours dark, dark brown and with chestnut highlights at the edges when held to the light. Touch of ruby in there too. Nose is weak overall. Bitter coffee, burnt sugar, light char, glimpse of dark fruit, roasted malt, faint chocolate and oats. Maybe some salted peanut. taste is slightly metallic up front. Body is thin and watery. My first thought is; "this is more like a porter than a stout." Has no depth or creaminess. Travels the palate way too quickly. Follows the nose with weak flavor of coffee, chocolate and the fruit has disappeared. Malt is weak and although this has balance it is lacking in intensity and depth. There’s a hop bitter mid palate that settles in back and without it there would be hardly any aftertaste except for the raw oat taste and a salted peanut flavor. I think this has potential but it just isn’t finished yet. It needs some tweaking.
