Probably one of the weakest stouts in my opinion. Just not a lot of character there. Thick to the hilt though.

joet (2538) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 27, 2001
Yeasty and with subtle aromatics and flavors of the non-roast variety all too rare for the style.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 20, 2001
Wonderful looks, dark with a rich, creamy head. Disappointing lack of taste. Chocolate and coffee are only faint in the aftertaste. Enjoyable but too bland.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 20, 2001
Beautiful black with a creamy brown head, exuding a coffee and malt aroma with a touch of cocoa. Very smooth and full bodied, however the taste is disappointingly weak, with chocolate, cocoa, and coffee flavors. Bland, but enjoyable.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 19, 2001
Sweetish aroma. Flavors are extremely mellow, but have tremendous depth: ale-fruitiness, roastiness, smoke. Super smooth body and very easy drinkability. One of the better stouts you can buy.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2001
Silky, smooth mouthfeel. Nice color and decent aroma. Hint of flavor somewhere. Not in the same league as Sammy Smiths Oatmeal.

booyaatribe (450) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2001
A really poor comparison, especially to Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout. Bitter, but not in the right way.
