This was really perfect looking.Nice foamy,lasting head.Black color.Very appetizing.The aroma was of roasted coffee,and a tad of skunk.The palate was about average.The flavor was of roasted coffee,a hint of chocolate,hint of skunk,nuts,maybe some cherries.Had pretty good body.Finished bitter and sour,but not too much.I would have liked more stickyness to the palate,and more chocolate in the flavor.Also,maybe a fresher bottle,as it had a slight taste of skunk,which somewhat ruined this for me.I gave this a higher rating because it had complex flavors.Would buy again,but try to get a fresher bottle. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2007
12oz. pours black with rocky tan head. aroma of spoiled milk and wet grains. flavor is slightly soured, oats, milk, grass, weak milk chocolate. mouthfeel is watery. this came as an extra and it sorta tastes skunky and past it’s prime. i find this to be quite unpleasant.

From start to finish this beer keeps your interest. I found it had alot going on with its hearty well balanced flavor the chocolate nuttyness was keeping my mind on when I would have another! Good Job on this one! ChainGangGuy (4918) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Appearance: Dark brown instant coffee appearance crowned with a head resembling chocolate milk bubbles.
Smell: Mostly mild coffee in the nose coupled with a bit of chocolate-dipped oatmeal cookie sweetness.
Taste: All the classic flavors are present: sweet malts, good coffee, earthen roastiness, and a bit of smoke. All flavors are nicely layered with a rich milkiness. Also, there’s a gentle hoppiness that emerges near the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium, though nicely textured and wholly drinkable with decent amounts of carbonation. A good soothing beer.
Drinkability: The unaggressive nature, and overall smoothness of the oatmeal stout style certainly lends to an ease in drinkability. Do I "love" the beer? No, probably not. I do like it a great deal, though, as well as recommend it to others. Enjoy! hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2007
bottle- thick black in appearence, reddish tan head. slightly smoked peat, coffee, subtle oatmeal flavor. A good brew to enjoy in the fall, but not appropriate for the hot June night I sampled it.

This stout pours deep blacl. It has sweet notes of chocolate on the nose. The flavor is of a creamed cocoa with some hinyts of the oatmneal. The palate rounds very creamy with nice sweet notes. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2007
