COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This monster was created with some of the best chocolate and roasted malts to create the perfect blend of stout fullness and minimal fruit esters. This beer will have you trying to decide if you like fullness or the myriad of coffee and chocolate undertones more. It will also have the other stout brewers gathering the torches and storming our door.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2010
On tap at Terminal. Poured medium-deep cola brown with a ring of off-white head. The aroma picked up lots of sweet and slightly darker chocolates paired with vanilla and rolled oats.. sweet and welcoming. The flavor found semi-sweet chocolate all the way through.. light cocoa bitterness and related sourness on the edges.. bittersweet, roasty finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with increasing bitterness as it progressed.. moderate carbonation.. decent feel and flow.. I’d gladly have another.

Pours dark brown with a thin light tan head that leaves lace on the glass. Aroma is burnt and roasty with a touch of ethanol. Flavor is coffee with a hint of sweetness like dark chocolate. Toasty and bready, too. Dry chocolate finish with lots of chocolate. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated with slight stinging and a medium body. Overall, a nice stout with lots chocolate character.

On tap at the brewpub in Chattanooga. Dark, ruby red to black pour, off-white head - nice lacing. Aroma of chicory, coffee, licorice. Flavor has some of the same elements with some chocolate making its presence known as well. Nice lacticity. Best of my visit to the brewhouse.

Hank1980 (947) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Sample from pub. In my opinion, this was the best beer poured the day I visited. Poured dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is a nice full-bodied oatmeal chocolate stout. Lots of chocolate and malt goodness. Mouth is full and delicious and creamy. Overall, an excellent brew.

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with small ring of tan head. Nose is an earthy chocolate, with oats coming out in the flavor with a decidedly smoky, roasty, bitter chocolate aftertaste.
