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.

Bottle courtesy of Atom. Chocolate, molasses, prune, and light smoky aroma. Black with a small brown head. Chocolate, coffee, ash, slightly acidic, and a little dark fruit flavor. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable.

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.

Bomber to snifter (thanks kbutler1). Looks good; black with tan lacing. Smells malty and a little roasty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer.

piscator34 (1968) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Draft sample. Black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of blue plum, milk chocolate, and mocha flavored coffee. Flavors are of chocolate malt, ash, earthy hops and a hint of cherry. Medium bodied. A solid straightforward stout.

jmikolich (1446) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle from Zipps, Nice dark brown nearing black pour nose is roasty and malty, body is a bit thin which surprises me given the oat addition, a good solid beer glad to see Steel Toe doing their thing.

tennisjoel (1175) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Dark brown pour. Not knowing what style of beer this was before drinking, I thought it might resemble a dunkel, a very good one at that. Some smokiness in the flavor, sweet caramel and oatmeal. Incredible mouthfeel. A nice start to my journey with Steel Toe beers.

Stine (1574) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Syrupy black pour that shines ruby around the edges and retains a mocha like foam. A heavy, detailed aroma; at times, bright and fruity, and at others dark and intense. Richly spicy and earthy with coffee, cinnamon and gingerbread; lots of candied and overripe red fruits. Slow to emerge, composed, and made interesting by its abundance of yeast and hop presence.

Strongly vinous flavor; cherries, raspberries and figs work with a big, bright citrus hop note that really stands out. There’s plenty of velvety dark malt laying calmly beneath.

Medium, fairly effervescent texture; easy to drink. A lot unfolds at the finish; rich raisiny cavendish tones give way to an awesomely meaty, smokey roast flavor, long after swallowing. A winningly unusual take.
