COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roasted barley is the trademark of stout, a bittersweet separation from its cousin Porter. Our deep black stout is made with a grist containing 15% organic oatmeal to create its remarkable silky texture.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours black with amber edges and a rocky tan head. The aroma is sweet chocolate, some berries, and lots of grain. the flavor is bitter chocolate with some caramel and earthy hops everywhere. Strong toasted oat notes take over the finish. Decent.

zathrus13 (1713) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown/black, with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, oats, and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, oats, coffee, and a little smoke. Very good.

kramer (4892) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2005
Tap at brewpub. Black pour with a thick creamy light brown head (on nitro BTW). Roasty burnt toast malt aroma. Nice roasted malt flavor with tons of coffee in the finish. Silky smooth mouthfeel from the nitro, like slipping into bed naked with quality silk sheets. The addition of oats adds a little body. Overall, a good true-to-style nitro Irish Stout. Shame there’s no way to get this to go.

pbjclimber (150) - Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2005
On tap at the brewpub, poured black with a nice tan head. There was a watery feel to this beer and it did not seemed very well balanced.

Nejhleader (1228) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2005
for a stout i thoguht this was thin and lacking in taste. It looked really good but beyond that there wasnt’ much to it. perhaps i got a bad batch. If i’m ever up in selinsgrove i’ll have to try again.

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2005
On tap at brewpub. Deep brown in color with a nice thick tan head. Roasty, malty hoppy aroma. Chocolatety, caramel notes. Roasty, malty hoppy flavor. Roasty, coffee like flavor. Full bodied. Creamy and smooth. Rich. Enjoyable.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 18, 2005
Pitch black hue with a tan, creamy head. Chocolate, coffee, oats, dust in the aroma. Moderate to heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: smooth, but this would be better without the "nitro kill".

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2005
On nitro at Pub. Pitch black, smooth creamy head but fades. Lots of roasted barley with hints of chocolate and nuttiness. Fairly sweet with some oil-like quilities similar to sam smiths- from the oatmeal. Should be labelled an oatmeal stout due to the 15% organic oatmeal used in the mash.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2004
On nitro at the pub. Smooth and innocuous, creamy, like all nitros. Nose largely chocolate and roast. Tan head and good body. Sweet and roasty throughout with a clean finish and no bitter kickback. Good lacing. This would be be better off the nitro.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Smoky nose. Good roasts in the flavor, some smokiness and hints of chocolate. Smooth, needed to be a bit thicker.
