COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extremely complex malt and oat flavor; sweet with nice chocolate and roast overtones. The addition of a healthy amount of brewers oats is detectable with a smooth, silky finish. This moderately hopped ale is a great choice for the majority of our dark beer lovers.

12 oz single from the can, purchased at the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Roasted grain, chocolate and light coffee in the nose. Similar flavor, dark, malty and pretty smooth. A little thin, but OK overall.

shigadeyo (3590) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Roasted malt aroma, dark brown color, chocolate and roasted makts in the flavor, not bitter or overly roasty at all, soft and smooth mouthfeel, perhaps a touch thin... good overall, but not great.

ads135 (3932) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 29, 2014
A very basic sweet stout with an emphasis on the stout, not the sweet. Looked for a bit more smoothness and sugar, but this beer unfortunately has neither.

On tap at Steamworks. Seems more dry stout-y. Very grainy. A bit astringent.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. Deep black with pretty lacing. Coffee aroma has lots of acidity, signalling the same in the body. Tastes like a Guatemalan coffee, actually--fruity and red coffee cherries with natural acidity. I like it.

Oakes (14841) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2011
Draught at the brewery, 7.1%. Pretty close to black. Sugary, sweetish and a little bit fudgey aroma - quite foreign. On the palate, however, it is not so much a foreign stout. It is thick and sweet, slightly fudgey...and not very nuanced. It’s ok.

Pours a dark espresso color with a small light brown head. Notes of coffee, toffee, and chocolate. Really watery, slightly sweet, and generally boring.
