COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This full bodied beer begins with a traditional oatmeal stout recipe. We then add a rich blend of coffee in the kettle and finish it with a generous helping of cocoa.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Pours a dark black color with a small tan creamy head. Nose is rich of roasted malt, coffee, cream, chocolate and touch of fruits. Intial taste of deep roasted malt. coffee, cream and chocolate. Fizzy mouthfeel. Mid palate to finish continues with roasted malt and chocolate. Rich flavor and enjoyable. Light to medium body. Good palate duration and head retention. Sweetness is balanced.

Dark black pour with a nice creamy tan lasting head. Smell is very nice oats, chocolate bits and roasted malt. Flavor is nice and malty with a nuttiness to it. Very drinkable and not overly sweet. Nice mouthfeel - not too thick or too thin. Dry and yummy.

Bottle in trade from beerlando. Thanks man!
Pours dark black with a nice tan head. Smell is is coffee and chocolate and roasty malt. Pretty nice. Taste is coffee, cream and a lingering chocolate mocha flavor. Body is about medium to maybe a slight bit rich. Medium carbonation. Nice coffee flavor that hangs around. Pretty nice beer!

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown pour, no head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, some sweet cola. I am actually tasting a little grape also, along with cola, chocolate, and some roasted malt. Bitter roast in the finish. Its just not very good in palate, aroma, or flavor.

joshsmith (5) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2008 does not count
bottle from Gasbarros Wine and Spirits in Swansea. a beautiful jet black pour with big tan head... that is until i noticed the suspended floaties inside, which slowly settled to the bottom. i was expecting to be knocked over by the coffee in the aroma but instead got grapes and cocoa. robust taste of roasted (bordering on charred) coffee and bittersweet chocolate. i like it. pretty full-bodied with long and dry, yet sticky, finish. this one is as advertised: lots of chocolate and coffee.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Thanks to alldaydrinker for this beer. Very dark black pour with thin tan head. Sour grape nose with some light malt aromas. Sweet chocolate flavor with some light mocha, but not nearly the strong flavors I expected. Some metallic bitterness on the finish.

Braudog (5627) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle: This poured with the requisite dark color and tan head, but it is suspiciously laden with chunks of heavy tan sediment as well. The aroma is somewhat fruity, with more of a grapey thing than Id expect. The flavor is also more intensely sweet than I anticipated. There is an underlying bit of mocha and bitter chocolate, but it does not predominate. As it warms, the finish gets more bitter and tangy. Enjoyable, but as much "mocha java" as Id hoped.

TomDecapolis (4470) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Pours a deep black with an average deep bubbly/creamy tan head that left some spotty lacing. Aroma of coffee grinds, cocoa, roasted malts, some caramel and dark chocolate. Flavor coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malts, picking up some hops and caramel. Well done.

Sammy (8527) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2007
Pours a mocha coffee dark black. Smells chocolate and mocha. Some coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Above average mouthfeel. Nothing outstanding to distinguish this one from other stouts, but quite nicely done. Another fine z-street.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2007
The beer pours deep brown but has an odd ball almost stale aroma. The dense notes of coffee and bitter chocolate on the palte with more of a malt like finish.
