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.

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 (5212) - 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 (12234) - 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.

ilovedarkbeer (2228) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Pours a dark espresso color with a small light brown head. Notes of coffee, toffee, and chocolate. Really watery, slightly sweet, and generally boring.

jeff789 (1406) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2010 Pitch black small tan head... roasty creamy mildly generic aroma... roasty, burnt in the finish dark fruits, licorice, not nearly creamy enough for an oatmeal stout... Decent, not great...

DocLock (7729) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Bomber from Frank Smith’s. Pours very deep black with minimal off-khaki head. Nose is huge roasty dark malt, oats, cacao, molasses. Nice nose. Tastes roasty dark patent malty, oaty, with molasses, cacao, a rich, complex palate and flavor profile, and a sweetness from the oats matched by a very roasty and full bodied malt flavor, plus a nice dose of backup finishing hops. This one is very good, and at 5 bucks a bomber, worth a case buy.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Draft at Magic City Brewfest. Pours very dark with a small beige head and some lacing. Very sweet, low hoppiness. Hints of coffee and chocolate. A bit thin and watery.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2009
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, oats, slight cream, and some lactose. Poured dark brown in color with a small, beige, head that diminished but lasted throughout around the edges and as a film on top of the beer. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, slight cream, oats, and a hint of lactose. Medium body. Lightly dry, slightly chalky texture. Average carbonation. Roasted malt, chocolate, and slight oat finish is lightly dry.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a black body with a tan head. Malted chocolate, light lactose tones, some light roasted notes, a bit thin and bittersweet. Oddly something about it seems lightly paper y or soapy just didn’t fit quite. Oh well a decent ale.
