(Sampler at the brewpub) Pours solid black with no real head. The aroma is of dark black malt and perhaps licorice. It’s thick and pretty smooth. The bitterness in the flavor approaches mocha. Great stuff.

scanman (149) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Pours a dark black/brown with brown/tan head. Initial flavors of brandy, malts, chocolate, coffee and coal. Not bad, but very intense for an oatmeal stout. Not very creamy or fruity like other "sweet" stouts. Recommended with reservations.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Thanks to Ryan for bringing this to my oktoberfest party. Similar to the devout stout, but has a bit more body, sweeter, and fuller mouthfeel. Nice orasted barley character, some chocolate, and a dry almond-like finish. Pretty smooth and has a slight slick sweetness in the end.

GABF 2006: Cear dark brown color with a beige head. Sweet coffee notes with a nice smooth roast make up the aroma. Matching coffe and roasted malt flavor. Not bad. Light to medium bodied

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Pour is cola like, brownish black with no head...roasty chocolate aroma...lost a lot of the chocolate flavor between the nose and mouth...slightly sweet and roasty but no real coffee flavor either...thin bodied...

Very smooth and silky, also very sweet. Good burnt/coffee flavors and aroma. Decent.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Bottle shared by FrumptyDumpty at Oktoberfest at Dickinsonbeer’s. Poured black with ruby highlites and a light tan head. Aroma of some light grapes and chocolate. Taste is cream and coffee with some dry grassy hoppiness. Body feels a tad light. Not bad overall.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Faint aroma of roasted malts. Deep black in color with crimson on the edges. Fairly thin and flat with little head. Very watery mouthfeel. Tons of soy sauce in the flavor, some roasted malts, additional light and fruity cherry flavors. Overall this is a pretty middling effort.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours a rich opaque with a thin-lacing, frothy light brown head. Aroma of roasty malt and bittersweet dark chocolate. Body starts with a mildly sweet dark maltiness a touch of resiny hop bitterness and a smooth roasty dark chocolate finish A nicely-balanced, true to style sweet stout. Thanks to tever for the bottle!
