COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our darkest ale is smooth and full-bodied with a roasty malt flavor and creamy texture enhanced by the addition of oatmeal. When carbonated and served with our nitrogen blend, this beer has the look and feel of a chocolate milkshake. Distinctive coffee, oatmeal and chocolate flavors dominate this staff favorite. A subtle hop finish rounds out this vision of perfection.

eaglefan538 (2851) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Poured on nitrogen, pitch dark (no colored edges at all) with a nice fat tan head on top. Lacing was outstanding, coating the glass long after I was done. Aroma was coffee alone. Flavor was pretty much coffee with some chocolate and roasted features. Simple, but enjoyable. Fairly sweet start with a nicely bittered finish. Not as "dry" a finish as others, maybe a bit too deeply roasted for a dry stout. Mouthfeel was typical for the style.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Poured an opaque black color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, light smoke, vanilla extract, and diactyl. Taste of chocolate, roast, anise, dried fruits, walnuts, and more diactyl. Enjoyable, though the butteriness of the aroma and taste was somewhat off-putting. And this should be a fresh batch, as they were all out when I was here 2 weeks ago.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2005
on tap at the stoudts august micro fest, a very pretty nitro pour, the head started rolling up from almost the very bottom of the glass and settled out into a thick carpet on top of a jet black liquid. the aroma had tons of coffee and a hint of vanilla and hops. the brewer told me he was going for a hybrid of an imperial, foreign, and oatmeal stout with this, and i think he achieved it. as the flavor starts with the blast of burnt malts and loads of coffee, and ends with a sweet chewiness i normally associate with sweet stouts. then the foreign aspect became evident inthe aftertaste with the semi-sourness and disticnt hoppy flavor. an interesting experiment that i think was pulled off very nicely.
