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. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2005
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. brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - JUL 22, 2004
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.

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.

Dark Coloring. Light Sweet / Chocolate Aroma. Taste was Smokey...an average Stout. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - 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. SpringsLicker (3638) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2004
This was deep brown not black with a creamy tan head that dissapates rather quickly. Chocolate notes are somewhat restrained and it all disappears by the time the finish should be making it's presence known. Thin and a little disappointing. It needs something but it would make a good beer for someone who doesn't care for real robust Stouts. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Dark brown pour, nice head with fine tan lacing. Aroma of dark fruits and grains, baker's chocolate flavors with subtle fruits. Kind of watery, disappointing body, but tasty. Pretty drinkable stout from Mont-aaaaa-na.
