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.

courtesy of hwwty4. Pours deep black with coffee/tan head. Aroma, light malts with chocolate, oat and roasted malts. Taste, roasted malts with hints of coffee and oats, light bitter chocolate and hops. Leave a lingering bitter palate feel. Bitter chocolate finish. Was really expecting something better.

Bottle. Pours dark reddish brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with a touch of chocolate. The flavor is much of the same, roasted malts, chocolate, and some coffee. Dry throughout, not sweet. It was ok, but I would opt for many other stouts before doing this again.

Ibrew2or3 (7957) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Courtesy of CigarCityBrew. Pours deep garnet with mocha head. The aroma is roasty to dark roasted malts leaning toward burnt malts and some biscuit. The taste is roasty moving more in the direction of mild malt astringency. Then there’s also notes of caramel and chocolate blending into sweet malts and dark roastiness. The roasted malts grow in strength as it is warmed and more of it is consumed. I didn’t really notice the signature creaminess the oatmeal tends to bring along.

I’ve had this from the bottle once and on tap a bunch of times. Not a bad beer.

Bottle to taster. Looks good; a semi-opaque dark cola with light beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

..and it pinkens your teeth as you chew... . Pours a deep shadow brown, like when you brown-out.. . . Medium head on the pour, light adhesive lacing .. . light sweet roast, 7min burnt oatmeal, and decaf .. . I am enjoying this beer, its simple but has all its ducks in a row, ..it’s tasty and quite sessionable- 8:26pm, 8/8/11 .. . Becky, I think I speak for all of us when I say, "When’s the ice cream going to get here?"

chriso (7513) - 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.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 27, 2007
On tap at Schlafly Tap Room. Poured a clear, medium-depth mahogany with a short, but well-retained cap of creamy beige head. Aroma seemed artificially-sweetened with chocolate at the core.. just a pinch of dried coffee.. too sweet. Flavor was of very sweet chocolate, oats, and some lactose sugars at the base with a mild bitterness emanating outward.. the sweetness seemed too amped up, which detracted from the enjoyment factor a bit. Lighter-bodied with OK flow to it.. again too sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2016 Bottle (Nov 2015 bottling). Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Rather plain but drinkable.
