COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very full-bodied oatmeal stout with five different roasted malts and a thick, creamy texture-a meal in a glass!

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Can and served in Guinness Impy Pint glass: Pours a deep mahogany hue with a lovely creamy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of roasted and chocolate malts, some earthy tobacco and leathery esters, oats and biscuit, grassy and herbal hop vapours with a touch of pine and citrus. The taste is a rather chocolatey with some roast and char along with an ripen fruity component. Minimal bitterness and almost no hop character. A tad sweet but still drinkable. The mouth feel is slick and medium-bodied with a slight metallic and ashy finish. All thing considered, you could do much worse outta a can than this. Would be a nice beer for a campfire.

12oz can, my 200th Illinois beer, home sweet home. Pick this up at a mix a six Binnys. Beautiful dark colored body, light brown head. Heavy chocolate aromas, with roast malts and coffee. Bitter sweet. Taste is of mocha, chocolate. Very nice.

wlajwl (4053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Aroma is roasted malts and some milk-like sweetness. The flavor is coffee, roasted malts, cocoa and has a milky consistency. Definitely better in a glass than out of the can, this was a very smooth stout.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Pours dark with a foamy tan head. Mild roasted aroma. The body is actually rather rich and malty, not as dry as your usual oatmeal stout. The flavor has hints of coffee and vanilla.

reggiedunlop (3217) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours black with a thick mocha head. Aroma is subdued but roasty with a bit of coffee and sweet chocolate. Flavor is more roasty and less sweet...a bit one dimesional...tastes a bit like a nitro irish stout. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a dry, roasty and slightly metallic finish.

Can from Pawola22 - thanks, Brian! Nice oily pour with a medium carbonation and some powerful stickiness. Huge nose of sweet roasted malts, molasses, and coffee slightly burnt. Mouthfeel somewhat slick, could be a hair fuller. Taste is quite rich, almost too sweet in places for me. Would like a greater accentuation of the roasted elements and a heftier oatmeal component to dry this out a bit.

CanIHave4Beers (3351) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Pours black with a medium light brown head that sticks to the side of the glass and leaves a nice lace.
The aroma is very mild, very clean, & nicely roasty. There is a bit of the mocha coffee on chocolate thing going on. This beer smells nice, but it doesn’t smell of much, it could stand to be a little more pungent.

The flavor is fairly dry, roasty and bitter with a touch of that black patent "burnt" kind of flavor just in the back. There is a mild coffee flavor but this is much more centered around dark chocolate.

The light carbonation on this is nice, but the beer is a little bit thin, that mixed with the low carbonation give it a bit of a watery sensation.

This is perfectly enjoyable beer! I sure didn’t find it to be very sweet, which is not a problem really.

On tap. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of lactose, chocolate, and light roasted malt. Flavor is sweet, perhaps a touch medicinal too. Just ok, certainly has its flaws. 6/4/6/3/13 (3.2/5)
