Opaque black, small tan head. Toasted coffee beans aroma. Medium to full bodied. Roasted, bitterish, quite typical lower ABV oatmeal stout. Mild toasted and hoppy aftertaste. jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Very dark pour with tannish head. Nose is dry chocolate nutty malt. Taste is roasted malt and chocolate. Rated 2/26/05 yngwie (17234) - 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

355ml bottle (Maltainen Riekko, Helsinki)Benzai (16682) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2011
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.
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. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 29, 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.
T: The flavor is very roasty as well with a slight smokiness and lots of coffee. There is some bitter chocolate and a mild bitterness.
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. Dedollewaitor (16383) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle @ Y.N.W.A Beershop, Kolding. Pours black with a small creamy head. Oat, roast and chocolate. Mild and smooth. Subdued and balanced. Fine.. Very original British. MiP (15972) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2011
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.
