(Bottle, BB Jan 03 2007) Pours a nut brown body with a large forthy beige head and descent lacing. Aroma of mustiness, cocoa, and roastiness. Flavor of baked oats and roasted malt.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2007 Re-rate: Sampled on tap @ brewpub. An excellent paring with their amazing Sticky Toffee Pudding. This one comes across much smoother and less bitter on tap. The burnt coffee flavor that dominated my bottle sample was much more subdued. While still not among my top sweet stouts, it’s not bad on tap. Original rating 2.7 (5/5/5/3/9) Bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish-brown with a huge creamy tan head. The aroma seemed quite muted with notes of molasses and grain (oats?) and a hint of coffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick and soft with a bitter finish. The flavor is of burnt coffee with a slight oatmeal note and a curiously bitter finish. This is definitely not my favorite stout.

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

Dark reddish brown with little head. Toasted malt and coffee aroma with a little toffee. Medium bodied with a quick finish. Moderate roast and coffee flavor. Little hop flavor.

Creamy head melts into foamy mounds. Tar black with a touch of caramel around the rim. The aroma is cocoa and sweet chocolate, with little to no roastiness. Loads of carbonation in the body - drinks almost like a cola at first. Easy boy! More sweetness in the body, coupled with a touch of bitterness. This stout is headed in the right direction, but could use more of everything (except carbonation!)

A pleasant-enough beer, but smelled and tasted more like a good lager. Little roasted malt, jsut a touch of sweetness. Thin with lively carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Certainly, smooth. Not displeasing, but also nothing to distinguish it.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Pours black with a good head. The aroma is all roasted grain. Has an initial taste of raisin that develops into a coffee and chocolate bitterness. Not much of an oatmeal presence. A decent beer.

Ughsmash (7181) - 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.

Dark brown pour with a light colored head. Good lacing. Too light in the mouth. Very slightly sweet with a dry finish.

Bottle courtesy of gregis. thanks!
Pours basically black with a fluffy tan head. Light to moderate smell of dark roasty malt, a hint of coffee and almost a light skunk smell in the background. Taste is semi dry char, roast malt, and it has an appropriate level of carbonation. A touch thin in the body however, a lingering ashy, charred smokiness, rather than the oaty creaminess I expected. Not bad and an interesting Oatmeal Stout.
