I may have gotten a different bottle of this than most people, as I wasnt very impressed. Poured to a dark brown with thin tan head that dissipated fairly quickly and left oaky lacing. I had to work to get much aroma, which was faintly malty chocolate-toffee. The taste was also a fairly sweet, but faint, chocolate, and was undone by the watery mouthfeel of this thin-bodied beer. The finish was also hgihly influenced by the thin body, and was short, watery and a little stale. Not as good of a beer as I expected.

Bottle. A very easy drinking stout. Maybe, too easy, a lttle thin but the flavors were all there, chocolate, coffee, roasted flavor. I enjoyed this one.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 9, 2007
Decent flavor to this one, lots of roasted flavor, with a bit of sweet chocolate, hops, bitter on the aftertaste, easy drinking brew.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2007
completely opaque black appearance with thick rocky tan head. oatmeal and chocolate chip aroma with some hops and buttermilk. flavor is thin with chocolate chips, hints of coffee, toffee, and carmel and lactic acid. very thin and boring mouthfeel.

BeerBellyOSU (47) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Murky black with reddish hints. Smells like oats and a little piney. Deep roasted oats taste, a little coffee, nice bitter finish. Winking Lizard Tour 2007

a full flavor stout, dark in color, roasted aroma and hints of coffee in the taste. not all too bad.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2007
(Bottle) Pours dark to black. Roasted aroma with dark bread, black berries, liquorice and coffee. Just a touch of vanilla and hops. Roasted, liquorice flavour with a burned ending. Notes of coffee and dark bread. Pretty round mouthfeel. Light sweet and light bitter. Medium body.

orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 This could possibly be a spoiled six pack because the flavor is pretty tame even for an oatmeal stout. Either way, its quite good; black in color and with nice sweet robusty grain flavors. Id buy it again. Now unspoiled(12/07/07)---- This is a very good effort. Solid worth a new boosted score above (previous flawed bottle was rated 3.5)

Aquilo (636) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 13, 2007
This looks like liquid chocolate with a frothy mocha colored head. Smells of chocolate and raspberry. The flavor is a bit thin and yeasty, but it has a nice espresso flavor to it. Silky smooth mouthfeel. This is well-rounded, but Ive had better stouts.

Bottles. Appearance is dark mocha brown with dark tan head. Moderate lacing evidient. Deelish Count Chocula & hops aroma. Flavor is sweet cooking chocolate, oats, malted milk balls and little twinges of roast coffee. Flavors become more bold as they warm. Aftertaste is wonderfully sharp bitter powdered chocolate. I would happily drink this sweet stout again!
