COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a dark, deliciously roasty brew with hints of chocolate in both flavor and aroma. This stout is velevety smooth with a dry, roasted finish.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with no bottling or expiration date noted. It pours an extremely dark brown to nearly black with almost no head. The beige head that does show up lingers for only a minute before it diminishes to a ring around the pint glass. The aroma has some weak burnt chocolate, thin malts, and a faint biscuity sensation. It is OK but rather underwhelming. The taste is only a smidge better with a burnt chocolately flavor, weak hops, and breadiness. It was easy to drink and I drank it quickly.

From a trade with "The Wheelman" of New Hampshire. This 12 oz bottle poured a coco cola colored brown with a think tan . The nose is of lightly roasted malts. Thin-bodied with kind of a fizzy mouthfeel. The flavor is light and the overall impression is of a thin, watery beer. Kind of a bite in the finish. While this was drinkable it was quite unremarkable.

Deep black robe with a very light head. Chocolate aroma plus nuts and coffey hints. Sweet taste and medium sourness, of roast and chocolate. Was a bit dispointed from this bottle taste...compared with the draft I had at Burlingtonís Brewers Fest.

12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent dark brown with ruby edges. 1/2" beige head with little or no lace. Aroma is sweet dark chocolate with a hint of coffee. Body is on the thin side, especially for a stout. Flavor is oatmeal cookie with touches of dark chocolate and coffee.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2009
Dark brown beer with a thick rocky tan head. The nose is a bit carbonic with a touch of light cocoa on the back. A little bit of fairly cola-esque aroma as well. Thin-bodied without much in the way of complexity. Very watery and a bit herbal. Roasty and fairly astringent on the back. Meh... very poor.

The brown in this has an unusual reddish tinge. Puffy, creamy head; Guinness territory. Uniquely red like an amber. Great. Roasted and smoky in the nose. Dark chocolates and mocha coffee. Dry malts with that bready oatmeal popping out. Hint of vanilla, raisin, grape. The taste is lots of raisins, dates and tobacco. Bittersweet burnt malts. Vanilla is an accent. A little maple syrup too. A very complex flavor. Really creamy with a tad of grit. Ashy and strong. A solid, solid oatmeal stout. Really mild and delicious. Everyone else on RB seems to be crapping all over this one but for the life of me I canít figure out why.

12oz brown bottle obtained at Barbís Beer Emporium in Concord. Pours a dark brown/black translucent body with ruby-red highlights and a short-lived off-white head. Roasty caramel, toffee, coffee, dark chocolate all characterize the aroma. Chocolate (reminiscent of Ovaltine), slight caramel... Hints of oatmeal in the flavor too. Aqueous in body with moderate carbonation. Tastes watered down. While Iím not that impressed with this one, itís the best one Iíve had from this brewery thus far...

dark brown pour with ruby highlights, slight tan head that quickly evaporates. Aroma is roast, some chocolate, some detergent. flavor is of philadelphia tap water and slight hints of chocolate. If this werent supposed to have oatmeal in it the mouthfeel wouldnt be a problem, but oatmeal is supposed to thicken the mouthfeel, which it certainly doesnt here. not impressed.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Dark brown with one finger beige head that lasts for as long as it took to write this sentence. Aroma is sweet creamy roasted malt and some soap-like chemicals. I can tell this is a sweet stout, but barely. It seems as though someone took a stout and cut it with water leaving a fragile shell of a brew. The hefeweizen I had about an hour ago has a fuller body. Flavors are roasty in nature, ending clean, ending like tap water. Woefully disappointing.

Bottle. Pours brown with a quickly gone head. Aroma is fairly mild of lightly roasted malts. Slightly bitter flavor, light bodied for a oatmel stout. Not your typical stout but definitley drinkable.
