Notes from 2004 - Too bad this one isnt around anymore. Found that out on my last trip through Montana. This is a really rich, and creamy take on this style, with chocolate coffee notes, roasted like it had been on the bottom of the pot for several hours, slightly burnt but not in a bad way. Rich oatmeal, along with caramel and toffee, and a dollop of cream to finish it all off. This was really tasty. I dont understand why they stopped making it.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 Pours a nice dark brown. Aromas of malts and chocolate. Flavors of oats, slight caramel, roasted malts and some slightly burnt chocolate tones. I wish they hadnt retired this one.

I really enjoyed this beer, the dark appearnce the aroma all blend together and lead up to the great taste, there were some many flavors I had a hard time picking them out. I did not notice the smokiness that was mentioned in other reviews, but it could have been a flavor that I could not differentiate.

WOW what a great beer. I loved the smooth flavoerof this beer. I can even get a small amount of hops off the head. Had this with a campfire and a small shot of Jack Daniles and wow it was awesome. I loved this beer.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Dark brown, dissipating head. Stale coffee aroma, some sweet molasses. Similar flavors, very smooth and quick on the palate. Makes for a decent session stout, but better ones are easy to find.

I actually think this is the best offering from big sky, at least from the brews I have tried. Decent and enjoyable. A very underrated stout. And something else CIGARSNBEER IS A MEMBER OF THE VALLEY CITY KILTED YAKSMAN CLUB! You know I am just kidding cousin!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Color is as black as black can be, and the head is thick, sturdy, and of tannish hue. Nice aromatics: cocoa, cream, earthy, gritty, some espresso, but I have to breathe in deep to imagine it all. Some bitterness on the palate, but, moreover, smooth and tasty. Lacking is the roasty flavor on the palate. that I utterly insist on in an oatmeal stout. Not much bite, and far too light in body. A decent and drinkable stout, but on the bottom rung, as oatmeals go. [

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 A friend visiting Montana brought this one back for me - Thanks Pigboy! +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a very dark color with a small tan head. There is a light sweet and toasted aroma. The flavor is smooth, creamy and smoky. The smoky taste lingers on the aftertaste.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Nearly opaque dark brown with ruby highlights and a medium creamy tan head. Light aroma of vanilla, milk chocolate and roast. Medium watery body with low carbonation. Decent flavor of chocolate and roast with some fruit and mustiness. A little watery and weak for my tastes, but drinkable.
