On tap at The Underground, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and unsweetened powdery cocoa. Flavour brings out dry powdery cocoa and light toasted malt secondarily. Soft palate, with low residual sugar. Very good stout. jtclockwork (17410) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours dark brown tan head. Nose and taste of flaked oats, roast chocolate, toasted vanilla bean and coffee. Medium body. DuffMan (10728) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with my father-in-law. Nice dark pour, brown head. Lovely balanced roast and dark malts, smooth and rounded, deep flavours. Alley Kat really nailed this one. Very nice stout. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours black in color with a small light beige head that leaves only a few specks of lacing. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is a roasted grain and grassy hop bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. I found that the 6 1/2 Bears seems thinner in body than the 3 Bears. Will have to wait and see if bottle version is better. Was a bit of a disappointment. pintbypint (3877) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
650ml brown bottle. Black pour with a tiny light brown cap and minimal lacing. Nose has cocoa and fudgey notes with roast. Taste has roast and fudge/chocolate. Some hop bitterness in the end. Roast and cocoa and some hops in the aftertaste and maybe a hint of alcohol. Good mouthfeel, creamy but not thick, carbonation is mild. Overall a good strong stout.

Rating #1011- March 1, 2014 - #blinddate at Beer Revolution. This brew almost made her talk of her growing laundry pile and inordinate number of cats bearable. Beautiful amber brown pour with a fairly weak tan head with mild lacing. Little thin in body for a stout, mild alcohol warmth, low medium carbonation. Aroma is a hint of espresso and cocoa bean in the roast malts, balanced by the sharp bitterness from the roast malts and noble hop - with the thick oaty sludge of a mouthfeel that indicates the depth of character for an old school oatmeal stout.

Pours a dark black color with a thick brown frothy head that last for a while. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and mocha. Taste is roasted malts, cocoa, bitter grassy hops and a nice smooth creamy mouthfeel. Another home run by the kats here with a delicious brew! dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Thanks Kevin. Black and smooth looking beer. Aroma is light smoke, chocolate fudge, medium coffee. Nice and easy drinking beer maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Black pour with medium sized beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and faint caramel. Taste of roasted malts, unsweetened chocolate, slight caramel, lactose. Medium bodied, perfect carbonation, nice soft mouthfeel from the oatmeal. This is an excellent beer that is world class, good job!
