Ericular (572) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Growler from Casanova, 48 hours after fill. Pours a dark black with brown head. Aroma is wood, nuts, ash. Taste is roasted dark malts, coffee, a little sour, a little ash. I love this brewery, and Iím not a huge fan of oatmeal stouts, but this was a bit below average for me. Light overall with a thin palate.

GJF (1237) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2014
On tap at the tasting room. Very dark pour, brown head. nice lacing. Moderate body for a stout--on the thin side. Itís got a tart, slightly metallic edge in it that cuts against some nice flavors. Good, not great.

AWISLguy (1195) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Sampler at the source with the just-21 year old. Black pour with fringes of lace. Aroma is caramel and molasses and bakers chocolate. Richly done. Taste is of sweet molasses, espresso, bittersweet chocolate and caramel. Not thick at all - almost lager-y thickness, but with very nice flavors. Medium bodied. Finishes well balanced between the bitter and the sweet. Slight thin for style would be the only negative. A smooth, tasty, easy drinker. According to him, the graduateís favorite TG of all heís tried.

Draft. Near black. Fair tan head. Mild sweetness. Fair roastiness. Tasty. Smooth. Great balance. Well put-together and Easy to drink like every other TG beer Iíve had. Was enjoying myself too much to put down any more notes..

Poured from a growler into a snifter glass. Aroma- Chocolate, oak/wood, and nuts. Appearance- Dark brown, coffee like head. Great retention with a nice lacing at the top. T - Similar to the nose but slightly sweeter. Some toffee and brown sugar hints. Subtle coffee notes that mix well with the chocolate/cocoa. A nice roasty malt flavor with a strong roasted nuttiness. Well balanced sweet and bitterness. Palate - Medium body with some carbonation. Very smooth, creamy, and sweet. Good mouthfeel that you expect from an oatmeal stout. Overall- Well balanced stout with a very smooth sweet finish. The malts and hops blend well together. A nice balance between sweet and bitter with a nice chocolate milk.

pepsican (1440) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pretty dark gold ale, almost black with a light tan head. Notes of chocolate (bitter), just a touch of hop fruitness, roasty, a bit of coffee. Much drier than expected, just a touch of sugar hanging out to stop this one from being too dry for the style. Earthy hop notes, toasty grains. This is quite nice. Carbonation lower medium. Pretty clean, mildly bitter finish. Quite tame.

rxeight (1234) - Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2014
Growler pour at the post DLD hotel bottle share. Light oatmeal stout. Mostly roast, some chocolate. Had that light stout over carbonation. Felt lighter than the claimed 6.6%.

JStax (2857) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2014
Draft pour at the source. Pours a dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma is roasty and ashy with a little caramel influence. Medium body and low carbonation.

Growler pour. Good and dry stout here with some subtle chocolate roast and oats on the back. Slightly thin, but in an OK way.
