Pours a black colour with a soapy tan coloured head and thick consistency. There is the slight aroma of oats with a mild flavour of roasted malt and slight bitterness, possibly tempered by the oats, that is short lasting on the palate. Overall a pretty good quality stout.

Beer poors black with a huge tan head. Aroma is roasty, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor is medium bitter, medium high sweetness, with bitterness that is noted in mid tongue from the roasty/hop combination. Mouthfull is full and creamy with a burnt sensation on the tongue (appropriate for style). Overall I have nothing more to say abou this beer than excellent.

tangentrider (144) - Alabama, USA - JUN 25, 2007
roasted malt and licorice aroma; black ale with a small dark brown, disappearing head; roasted flavor, with a slight sweetness--could be a bit sweeter and richer for my taste; finish is a bit thin and short

Oh, this is a good stout. Very thick with a nice mouthfeel. I taste lots of licorice in it. Not too sweet, but just right. An excellent stout.

Something of a disappointment for me, being a fan of AV. It tasted too much like their other beers instead of tasting like a stout.

Like all good Head, it gets in, works its magic and gets out. Makes its point of being there but doesn’t stick around, until you want more… you figure it out? But in this case the head was way to short , because you can never have to much head? I’m a retard. Great tasting stout, for some reason I thought it would taste like oatmeal? But at this stage in my like I’m used to let downs. Still a very fine brew. Nicely crafted. This brew was as black as my heart. Cheers!

When it comes to darker, richer beer, I love a good oatmeal stout and this is one of the finest. From the moment I poured the bottle into my glass I knew I was in love. Great aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel malt. Nice and thick with a dark brownish almost black color and a thin white head that is quickly gone. Thick and heavy mouth feel that matches the appearance. Taste is mocha, coffee, chocolate, caramel and maybe some chestnut or something like that. Very subtle hops. This is one of my new favorite stouts and beers period. Will get this one again very soon.

Molto scura, bella densa,! Schiuma compatta e sottile, evanescente e di color nocciola. Buona, buona, buona! Caff con finale secco! buona!

Bottle. Small, dissipating head on this standardly dark stout. Aroma of deeply roasted cashews plus a bit of malted chocolate. Wonderfully tiny bubbles on the tongue. A bit sticky goin down . Flavor more sweet than bitter & slightly lactic. Sweetness is well balanced by slightly acidic coffee flavors at the end. More chocolate than coffee, overall, though. Nice.
