On draft at pub, chocolate aroma with American citrus/pine note. Chocolate and touch of dark fruit with piney (Columbus?) hop flavor, but very low, to no roast in flavor. Oatmeal duly noted in mouthfeel, what kmweaver dubs ’nougat’. This was my third place choice (of four) in blind tasting for best stout in Sonoma County.

Draft at brewery. Nose is string chocolate and a moderate roast character. Some bitter chocolate. Stains shirts. Otherwise ok.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Keg at Third St Aleworks, Santa Rosa, 28/04/14. Light black with a moderate tan swirl that clears to spotting. Nose is roast malt, light coffee grinds, cocoa nibs, brown sugars. Taste comprises dark chocolate, molasses, roasty tones, dark malts and toffee. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation over pitched in this respect. Ok to middling stout, the carbonation certainly dropped it a few points for me.

Dark black color. Chocolate oatmeal flavor. This beer is rich but well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (4972) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014
Draft - Roast notes and coffee. Jet black with a rich persistent brown head. Espresso, bittersweet chocolate, some dark fruit and an odd sourness. Something wrong with this recipe.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 9, 2014
On tap @ Third St Aleworks. Black pour with a khaki head. Aroma is pretty roasty and smokey. Some plastic, dirt, and cheese. Light ash. Meh. Flavor is bitter smoke and plastic. Lots of roast, coffee, and ash. Minimal, if any, sweetness. Not very pleasant.

Tap at the brewpub. Rich dark pour with a sticky off white head. Bitter chocolate and oat smoothness, nice palate, and a bit of bitter roast late.

hackobock (1713) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2013
On tap at brewpub on 062013. Black with a tan head. Smooth roasted aroma of coffee, chocolate and oat. Taste follows aroma with a smooth texture (oat) and a light bitter chocolte finish.

Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 On tap at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Pour is pitch black with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Roasty, chocolatey, vanilla, light oak, maple, and earthy hops in the aroma. Taste is chocolatey, earthy, espresso, slightly grassy, light vanilla, and oak with a slightly roasty finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not bad.
