At brewery straight up oatmeal stout. Dark murky black. Tastes chewy of oatmeal, chocolate, light coffee bean, earthy biters, some cola. Fine palate.

Pour is jet black with a caramel colored head that lingers for quite a bit of time. Nose is extremely heavy on the roast, a touch of dry chalky chocolate, notes of toffee. Taste is a little more balanced, not quite as roasty, still a fair bit of roasted malt, more light dry chocolate, a bit of sweet malt. Medium to full body with moderate carb and a slightly bitter finish. Flavor is much more balanced than the nose, fairly enjoyable albeit not great.

22 oz bottle shared by a kind soul at Chickow day. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma and flavor have nice roasted malt, almond nutty character, dark chocolate, nice creamy mouthfeel, solid drinking stout.

nimbleprop (5785) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2015
22oz bottle from pepsican pours a mostly opaque black with some thin white head. Nose has plenty of molasses, some cola, some chocolate, a little brown sugar, some toast, plenty of cookie. Flavor has more cookie, Oreo, some cheap brown sugar, toast, mild coffee, molasses chew. Full finish but also dry. Solid.

wlajwl (4531) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Aroma is dark/roasted malts and mild nuttiness. The flavor is dark/roasted malts, light fruit, mild sweetness, a hint of nuttiness and a bitter/acidic finish. Simple but very effective.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, some milk chocolate notes into a bit of dark fruit, slight earthy, spicy notes into a bit of oats. Taste was a mix of big chocolate, roast, coffee, hints of cocoa powder into a bit of spice, oats, slight fruit, finishing sweet.

Clownoisseur (357) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2015
On tap at TG. Pours a dark brown...khaki head. Aromas of coffee, dry cocoa, milk chocolate and roasted oats. Taste is slightly dry cocoa, with a counterbalance of milk chocolate...light coffee...and a sweet oatmeal backbone. Nicely done stout!

Marheb (3027) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 L’apothéose de ce qu’un stout devrait être. Structure en bouche aussi décadente que possible pour 6.6%, des saveurs aussi variées que complémentaires et une finale glorieuse et doucement astringente. Dans la même lignée que HF Everett et Bellwoods Lost River, peu importe l’appellation ou le style qu’on veut bien leur donner.
