COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and complex from a tremendous amount of roasted malts, yet smooth and rich from the addition of oats. Dissent has its own opinion of what a dark beer should be.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 There are many stouts I would pick over this one, although many I wouldn’t. I wish it were maybe a little more boozy/thick when drinking it. Overall flavor is pleasant with chocolate notes.

bookman10 (621) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours a dark, oily black with small head. Strong aroma of roasted (almost burnt) grain. Flavors include chocolate and coffee, some licorice and roast grain, with an underlying boozy-alcohol flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side for a stout. Could use a bit of reworking.

Sample at the brewery after a tour. Expected dark color. Head is browner than expected. Great roasty coffee taste that is very pure.

steeleliver (120) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2012
On tap from Republic, MN. Pours rich dark brown with short mocha colored head, less than half a finger. Opaque red around the corners of the glass. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, and oats. A bit on the sweeter side. An excellent palate, very smooth and a bit oily. Warms up the soul on a cold winter day.

22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours black with a medium sized khaki colored head. The aroma is roasted malts, chocolate with a hint of oatmeal sweetness. The flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, very mild dark fruits with more mild oatmeal sweetness. Pretty decent straight forward stout.

Tmoney99 (10405) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle shared by ab3shine. Poured black color with an average frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy dark malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good and my expectations where met.

burgy (455) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Draft at brewery. Nice deep and dark the only thing lacking was the palate. For a stout it was not as creamy as I prefer.
