Fairly enjoyable stout. Smooth, good oatmeal flavour. You could do worse. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2010 Bottle, pours jet black with a small tan head. Aroma of strong roasted malt, chocolate and oatmeal. Flavour of oatmeal and roasted malt, with a smooth palate. Very nice. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. A clear dark brown body is topped by a small, tan head. The aroma is pretty roasted,with coffee and some dark chocolate. Pretty similar flavor, with a roasted-bitter touch towards the end. I’d like some more hops if I were to choose. It’s soft on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level, medium to full-bodied and neither too sweet nor too dry. Overall, an easy drinking and tasteful beer I wouldn’t shy away from having again. 130405 jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2010

A: The pour is almost black with a thin tan colored head.
S: The nose is plenty roasted with some notes of coffee, sweet chocolate, and smoke.

M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation and a smooth feel on the tongue.
D: A solid oatmeal stout with good flavors and aromas that go down easy. Another good Anderson Valley beer.

Lovely soft mouthfeel. Nice gentle roasty aroma. Great smooth roasty taste, just a hint of coffee. Burntness clear, but not astringent at all. Great drinkable porter. Supports my view that the US does the best porters in the world.
Bottle. Rough roast barley aroma, hint of fruit. Almost black colour, seems clear. Big stable brown head. The flavour is roasted with a dull coffee note. Coffee grounds finish, gets a little sour. Rather thin mouthfeel. Benzai (15446) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2011
Pitch black opaque color. Smell like a real heavy stout, but it tastes lighter then it smells. Oily texture, low carbo and body but a fine taste. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Back - brown head. Ryebread, sweet rye bread, chocolate, nice soft body, light coffee/mocha, caramel notes, berries, light hoppy, light burned malty taste.
