This is our strongest, darkest and most heavy regular offering. It is virtually black in color and features rich roasted malt flavor with a delicate caramel and vanilla finish. It is carbonated and served with the use of nitrogen gas, giving the Black Water a beautiful cascading pour and thick, creamy foam atop your glass. Made with only the freshest American malts and English hops.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2008
On Tap at Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery. Dark pour. Aroma of roasted malt and light burntness. Taste was of strong coffee, and a little chocolate towards the end. I didn’t get a lot of oat flavor in this one for some reason. Medium to light body. Seemed to have too much coffee flavor fpr style. May not buy again but was still pretty tasty.

Draft: pours dark black, burnt coffee, chocoalte, malt aroma, taste is a bit like sour coffee with some malt backbone, fairly thin mouthfeel for a stout which is always disappointing to me. Still, this was the best thing I had while at Town Hall.

Growler. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong roasted malt, chocolate, wood. Medium mouth feel, similar flavors to nose, very sweet, light vanilla, good.

A very dark brew with a nice tan head. Nose is heavy on the roasty toasty malts but the is an underlying graininess that lends some depth to this.It was just a little thin for me but very enjoyable.

on tap at town hall brewery. Almost black with a dark tan head. Very thin compared to other oatmeal stouts I have had. Just not much taste. Didn’t offend though.

Sampler at the brewpub. It poured a very dark brown color with a thin foamy brown head. The aroma was of dark roasted grains and ripe plums. The taste was of roasted grains, almost smokey with ash, vanilla, chocolate and juicy fruits. A very decent Stout.

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Pitch black body with a dense light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee & bitter burnt scents. Medium-bodied; Very nutty taste with good roasted malt flavours. Aftertaste shows more bitter tastes and more coffee flavours. Overall, not great-too much nuttiness for an oatmeal in my opinion. Many thanks to hopscotch for bringing this beer! I sampled from this growler at the November RB party at Founder’s in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-November-2004.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Just another pretty face. Just another good looking oatmeal stout. Kind of sits there without intensity or complexity. Sweet coffee taste, smoke smokey nose, some bitter finish that seems out of place.

Black Olive colored pour; mocha colored head with good lacing. Good sweet chocolately aroma. Has a bit too much lacticity for my taste. Good bittersweet chocolate notes make a presence but the mouthfeel is just a bit thin. Overall, not bad and would order a pint or two next time around.
