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.

Courtesy of hellbilly. Pours deep and dark with nice looking mocha like head. The light aroma offers up earthy notes, some dark roasted malts and a touch of chocolate. The taste is pretty rich with dark roasted malts and some chocolate that roll headlong into some spicy and earthy hops. The earthy hops seem to give a sense of oxidation that may detract from the experience, but not for me.

Thanks to Bob for the bomber. Poured deep brown with a dense, well-retained khaki head. The aroma picked up sweet milk chocolates and rolled oats, with fresh earthy accents.. sweet overall, and very pleasant to smell. The flavor found sweet and a little darker chocolate at the core, with plenty of ashy, well-roasted black malts too.. a touch of fruit joined sweet chocolate, oats, and roasty black malt on the long, dry, tasty finish. Medium-bodied, well-carbonated, and silky on the palate.. loved the lingering roast and bitterness.. great brew!

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.

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.

In short: A dirty stout with a bit of many things that don’t all work together.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed a few months after receiving it from oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Very dark brown (near black) body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Low-intensity nose of roasted chestnuts, mocha chocolate bar and earthy notes. Body size is medium, texture is a bit juicy/oily for the style, medium carbonation. Taste is a bit strange. Basic elements of roast, mocha coffee, roasted chestnuts chocolate and others clash with a weird acidity and also a strong sensation of dirt/earth that turns into dirty tobacco in the finish. That beer really feels dirty-earthy. Alcohol is more apparent than it should be in a 7% beer. Not an offensive beer but not something I need to drink again. The lamest Dissent since wearing socks of different colors to show solidarity against racial discrimination.

Draft at the brewery. The aroma is of coffee and dark roast. Of course, this is a dark-colored beer. This all carries to the drink. Pure coffee, mostly, and quite yummy. Pass the sugar. (#5657, 8/28/2014)

Keg @ Happy Gnome. Brown with a small head. Nose of burnt brown sugar, cream, roasted nuts. Ash. Nice and full. Taste is wonderfully creamy, substantial. Lactose, rocky road fudge. Slightly peppery hops. Some burnt espresso. Medium body, supple and a bit oily. Wow. Credit where it’s due. Very nice.

Bottle thanks to Rob. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong roast, coffee bean, oak. Medium mouthfeel with roast, coffee, dark chocolate. Good.

Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Sampled on draught at the brewery tap room in St Louis Park, MN. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with an average tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind a beige film on glass edge and a thin off-white ring. Aroma of roasted dark malt, some chocolate malt, a hint of anise, light coffee and floral hops. Taste is medium to full bodied, with complex flavors of chocolate and black malt, some black licorice, oatmeal, and floral hops. Finish is quite smooth with some chocolate/oatmeal malt aftertaste along with some mild bitterness.

It seemed like more of a brown ale, a very good brown ale. Fresh and well hopped for the style. Well roasted but not burnt, and a very good palate. Sampled on draft, at the brewery.
