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

Good Stout from a real local brewery/restaurant. It’s only a few minutes from where I live, but I haven’t been to it yet. Go figure. Strong notes of chocolate and coffee aromas. Pours black with a very thin, tan head. Taste is rich cocoa, with an earthy, coffee finish. Somewhat thick on the palate. Overall, I think this is a solid stout. Carbonation fizzled out at the end, but for a small brew pub, I think this is pretty good.

Had at the pub. A rather dry Sweet stout. Roasted flavors, somewhat smokey. Not bad. Creamy a bit. Serving: Tap (Nitro I think)

Mediocre. Bland and boring for sure. This is some nice flavoring going on but they dissapear is a second. The big kicker for me is it way to watery. Pours black with almost no head. Just weak over all. Has awesome potential but missing the mark on a few things. This finish on this is almost nonexistent. Unfortunate.

12oz can courtesy of dwm1034. Thanks! Pours a jet black color with a small tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Medium-heavy body on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, roasty, coffee, a little smokey, with a mild bitter finish. A nice stout.

12oz can... murky black with a light tan head, gone quickly... aroma is boring and light, chocolate, roast... really boring taste, ash at first, with a hint of chocolate... blah, not worth having again

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2011 Not as good as I expected out of the can, but it was warm, fresh off the shelf, so I’ll let ’em chill this evening and crack another tonight. After a second helping, I take back most of what I said above, this beer is a real wonder. Great job all around!

12 oz can. It pours a thick, dark black with a frothy tan head that is short-lived and leaves a bit of lacing. The smell is moderately roasty with hints of caramel, cocoa, smoke, malt, and alcohol. The smell could be heavier though. The flavor is decent. It has a noticeable roasty flavor along with some basic white sugar. It is noticeably thin though which detracts a lot from it.

Tasted on 3/9/11 from a 12oz can purchased at Binny’s Lincoln Park. Pours opaque deep brown, almost black, with a thick brown head that slowly recedes to a nice collar of lace, leaving lace along the inside of the glass. The nose is dark malt, smokey, chocolate, espresso, and a bit of nuttiness. The flavor is molasses and dark malt up front, moving to dark chocolate, espresso, light vanilla, burnt bitterness, and a bit of smoke. The body is full with light carbonation and a long dark roast and smokey finish.

Blah. A boring and bland stout. Aroma was weak. A slight alcohol presence with a hint of dark chocolate. Pour was a flat black with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was weak and watery. Not much flavor unless you get a mouthful and even then it’s weak. Coffee, dark roasted malt and not much else. Turns to water mid swallow. Very light carbonation that leaves quickly.
